Last night was the hale and farewell for Dave and the guy he is replacing, Danny Ewing. Hale and farewell is a way of introducing the new guy and saying goodbye to the old. Dave and I were introduced and welcomed by the captain of the USS STETHEM DDG 63. A lot of the members of the wardroom showed up at TGI Fridays off base to say hello and goodbye. It was nice to meet people that Dave has been working with for the past week. Everyone was very nice that we met and one girl was actually born and raised in Raleigh, NC (North Raleigh area). It was a little touch of home. She asked me how to make sweet tea! Here are a few pictures.
