Captain's Blog 1/31/11
Yesterday's all-day cook-out was a great day off. The weather was absolutely superb, and besides nearly a ton of hamburgers, hot dogs and spare ribs consumed - I think everyone got a bit of sunburn, and talked on the cell phone to their families and friends at least once, maybe ten times. Chartwell's Dining Services did a great job.
Last night's Mayhem in Mayaquez was a real success. I know that our cadet correspondents will make a full report. Of course, besides some friendly recreation, the event was a fundraiser for Wounded and Disabled Veterans. I know that CDR Kelleher and his staff are quite pleased, and I think the cadets and crew aboard who bought raffle tickets, participated in the auction and bought ringside seats, can be proud of their spirit to give - and to give to such a meaningful charity. Off toward the beautiful island of Barbados later today.
