Commander Arranged Tours fo the USS Eisenhower( Air Craft Carrier) and the USS Scranton(Submarine) for family and friends for the 11th , the day before his Retirement Ceremony.
Everyone really enjoyed it, as most had never had an opportunity to be aboard an Active Ship or Sub...First we toured the IKE which is the Carrier he's been attached to for the last 2 years. He's been with the Command Strike Force for Carrier Group 8.
After the IKE we Toured the Scranton, a Fast Attack Submarine. He wasn't ever stationed on the Scranton. He was stationed on the Norfolk when we first moved here in 96' . The Norfolk was parked further down the pier...He didn't realize she'd be in port or he'd have arranged for the tour to be done on her instead....the family enjoyed it anyway.I even got my mom climb on down.
