The future USS St. Louis Sailor in the spotlight for the month of June is Electronics Technician Petty Officer 1st Class Chase Dunemann.

As an electronics technician, the Brainerd native is responsible for repair, maintenance, calibration and adjustment to electronic equipment used for communication, detection, tracking, recognition, identification, navigation and electronic countermeasures. Currently a student in one of the longest training pipelines in the Littoral Combat Ship program, Dunemann has excelled at all his training and sought out and succeeded in extra work duties. He is a mentor to all who ask and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to equipment, electronics theory and experience in the Navy, according to a news release. He assists and ensures all his shipmates are set up for success and able to take the ship and commission it when the time comes.

Electronic technicians plays a vital role in ensuring the commands fitness levels are up to standard. Dunemann is the Command Fitness Leader for Precomissioning Unit USS St. Louis LCS-19 and Assistant Command Fitness Leader for the LCSRON2.

When asked to describe Dunemann, Information Technician Chief Malinda Hersey said, "His hard work is not just limited to his job. He leads his superiors and subordinates alike in weekly physical training sessions, conducts bi-annual PFA's and mentors sailors in physical fitness. He is dedicated, motivated and always steps up when asked."

Dunemann's favorite part about being in the Littoral Combat Ship program? "Having a small tight knit crew of about 70 sailors," he stated in a news release. "We all know each other and have each other's backs. Coming from an aircraft carrier of nearly 6,000 sailors I knew I wanted something smaller where each sailor can make a larger impact."
