We're suiting up for the closing banquet and dance. We'll celebrate our friendships, remember old shipmates and think about those good, difficult, rewarding and challenging days of service. Then we'll say goodbye for another year.
And in the morning, we'll get in cars and on airplanes and head home.
Amidst all the farewell frenzy, I will not have time to share more with you from Virginia Beach. I, too, will close down the lounge tonight and rev up the car tomorrow morning.
In a few days I'll be home and ready to share much more with you about this wonderful week. Until then:
Fair winds, following seas.
