Reception - 23 July

Continuing the mission of strengthening maritime partnerships in the Black Sea we were able to host a reception onboard for several Romanian Naval Officers, local Officials and members of the Black Sea Council of the Navy League.
Helping me cut the cake this evening was the Romanian Deputy Chief of Naval Forces, VADM Nicolae Valsan. We spoke about our many things throughout the evening including the growing relationship between the US and Romanian Naval forces.

Tonight's reception was a great event made possible by the hard work of the crew. I included several pictures of those from behind the scenes that made the event so successful.
