Thanks on Veterans Day
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.
