Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
Standing at quarters after CDR Willard took command, and right before we left on the PACEX exercise.  My friend turned to me and said (speaking of CDR Willard), "There is a future CNO!"  I kept in touch with the leadership biographies on the navy.mil site - to see that ADM Willard was the Vice CNO.
