Our last day at sea before arriving back in Portland! Flashlights are over, spirits are high, and everyone is brimming with anticipation, as they look forward to being back in familiar territory and seeing their friends and family again. It’s also the time when the 2/C Midshipmen will be disembarking, and a new crop of 2nd Class will be coming on for second half of cruise. Tonight, as a bit of celebration, there was a barbecue on the fantail, replete with delicious foods, such as burgers, hot dogs, steaks, chicken, and dessert. There was also a special moment for one of our Commandant’s Staff; Lt. Coleman is moving on to another career at the end of this first half of cruise, so the students put together a nice card to present to him. He will surely be missed.
