Command Change

Yesterday, we were able to attend the Change of Command at Portsmouth Navy Base.  It was a ceremony honoring a long standing tradition of the US Navy.

The Shipyard workers recently did some work on the USS Constitution and honored the Commander who was stepping down by taking the scraps of the Constitution and recreated a part of the old ship for the stage out of scraps.  It was a very wonderful surprise and even more....a piece of wonderful history.

This is Commander David Hunt who is taking over Command.  He was stationed here a few years ago and we loved having family close by...the cousins are thrilled again to be close to one another.  They were making plans together last night at dinner.

There was a lot of pomp and circumstance but we enjoyed our time with family.

We are excited to have the Hunt's back in the area!
