I am on record congratulating VADM Buck and his team on making the best of a lousy situation for Commissioning Week. But there’s still something that needs to be done – a collective celebration.
So I’m putting this out there – the (un)official USNA Class of 2020 Celebration will take place July 30 – August 2 in Annapolis. Mid Mom & I have rented a house with a comfortable backyard and are expecting many friends, families, and newly minted ensigns and 2nd Lt. to show up.
This will not be a “real” Commissioning Week, but it will be a real celebration.
Here’s the deal: I’ll fill your plate. Mid Mom will fill your glass. Together we will fill the conversation with laughter, stories, and memories of our four years on the Severn. There are no other plans (well, truth be told, I will attempt to take VADM Buck up on his offer to visit the Supe’s residence), but the details are unimportant. We just want you to be there.
I know everyone can’t make it, but I am hopeful that those who can it, will make it (after all, aren’t we committed to – we will find a way or make one?).
