Carl Payne graduates from Navy school

Navy Seaman Apprentice Carl R. Payne, son of Elshebia N. Payne and a resident of Menlo Park, recently graduated from Operations Specialist School with honors.

In Great Lakes, Illinois, he took a course at the Center for Surface Combat System Unit, where he learned to operate surveillance and search radars, recognize and identify electronic signals, control aircraft approach devices, and operate electronic navigation systems, the Navy said.

These studies are designed to train operations specialists for duty in a shipboard combat information center or at a shore-based fleet training center.

Seaman Payne, who graduated in 2010 from Menlo-Atherton High School, joined the Navy in December 2010.
