Navy.mil ~ "'Gator Week is important because it complements our heritage, and it shows the unity and effort it requires to execute our mission,' said Capt. Brian Quin, commanding officer of Essex. 'Winning [this year's competition] reflects how the Iron Gators on Essex set the conditions for success and execute with precision and style. That's the Iron Gator way.'" ~ Navy.mil
