Thanks on Veterans Day

                           With the Commanding Officer of USS FARRAGUT (DDG 99) on the ship's commissioning day in 2006 (Scarborough photo)

See the Navy Commander on the right side of the photo?

That’s Deidre McLay, and I’ve known her since she came as a college-aged Midshipman to my first ship, on a summer training cruise.  This photo was taken on the day that her destroyer, the FARRAGUT, was commissioned as a brand-new ship in 2006, and she was the first Commanding Officer.  My son and I went to the commissioning ceremony in Florida.

How wonderful is that?

Happy Veterans Day.
