Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Raymond Hager, son of Ann Hager, Rugby,and the late Raymond Hager, and fellow sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions committee.

The coalition is a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives.

The program was originally created for those in ROTC, JROTC and similar programs. However, it quickly spread throughout the Navy and is now a resource for all sailors.

The purpose of the program is peer mentorship. The goals of its members are to get a group of sailors who, through networking and discussion, can create and ways to inform and inspire others to make better decisions, and to equip all hands with the tools they need to make those decisions.

The coalition has different topics they want to focus on every month in an effort to raise awareness about these issues. Topics range from addressing problems such as sexual assault to everyday issues such as car buying.

The coalition recently held its first meeting and plans to meet at least once per month throughout the rest of the ship's deployment.

Hager is a 1986 graduate of Rugby High School and joined the Navy in August 1988.
