On Thursday 5 March at 10:00 AM there will be an Awards Ceremony for all hands at the Dealey Center Theater on base. After the awards are completed we will present our new 1st Deployment Coins to the crew, shake their hands and thank them for all of their hard work.
After the awards ceremony Rick hopes to take several of our association members who are interested aboard to cook one last time for Capt. Geddes. We will can use this opportunity to allow a tour of the boat for members who have not yet done so.
