CLICKON Studios teamed up with Y&R Memphis to produce Faces Of The Fleet. When most people think of the Navy, they see ships, jets and advanced technology. They rarely see people, the ones who know the real meaning of Navy life.


How do we shift focus from technology to real and raw stories of our men and women in uniform – inside their real environments. How do we inspire a new generation of men and women to consider a career in the United States Navy?


An episodic series where we invited the viewer into an intimate and personal connection with sailors every month. After watching, our audience gained an understanding of what life is truly like inside America’s Navy. These captivating stories also served as a teaching tool, boosting the Navy’s recruiting capabilities.

The overarching theme is FORGED BY THE SEA. Faces Of The Fleet is an intimate, first-person look into the lives of sailors and how exploring and protecting the world – in only the way the Navy can – forged them into the pillars of the communities they live in today.



Jesse Iwuji is a sensation in the racing community, being the first active duty armed forces member to compete in NASCAR, and one of only a handful of African American drivers.

Born and raised in Dunn, North Carolina, Michael Ivey is from a long line of farmers. He grew up on a sweet potato farm in a low-key town where no one was ever encouraged to live a life out of the ordinary.

How could this young man possibly escape the mundane of rural America to become a hero of his country?


The motto of the Air Rescue Swimmers (AIRRs)  is “So Others May Live.” We meet the heroic AIRR who is carrying this motto into other aspects of his life including feeding San Diego’s homeless population and helping underprivileged children. This is the story of Jamison Ware, an enigmatic young Sailor who is living a life of total unselfishness.
