This year’s installation dinner of council officers and board members took place on Saturday January 25th. This year we once again expanded the number of units we support adding the Aegis Tech. Rep to our ranks.
This year we also welcomed senior staff from the to-be USS New Jersey, a Virginia-class attack submarine. The submarine was invited to participate in conjunction with the submarine’s commissioning committee, who presented a Sailor-of-the-Year award. The council hopes to build a long-term relationship with the submarine up to and after her commissioning.
