Pair of sailors on USS Carl Vinson will have rooting interest

Friday, November 11, 2011

When the Tar Heels take on Michigan State Friday in the Carrier Classic on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson, there will be two sailors in attendance with clear allegiances. Peter Locklear, from Pembroke, N.C., and Charles Hobson, from Wilmington, N.C., both serve on the USS Carl Vinson, and neither thought they would see the day when as basketball game would be played there.
