Underway Training

30 July, 2010 - We spent the last week underway conducting various training events off the coast of Virginia.  We had a couple of assessment teams aboard as well as 22 Midshipmen on summer cruise and four prospective Commanding Officers from the Surface Warfare School in Newport, RI.

It was a full week and I know everyone kept busy.  We had a break from the recent summertime temperatures and were able to spend some time on-deck.
