    Thank you for your service and from the book of Numbers 6:24-26:

    May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.

    Wherever and whenever you deploy, work hard, take care of yourself, stay away from those with bad attitudes, enjoy the places you go, and enjoy the people with whom you will work. Deployments are good and bad, and I hope that you will allow the good to overcome the bad in every instance.

    Though sailors are rightly notoriously superstitious, I will send you wishes of luck along with my experience that says you will do just fine in any event.

    Fair winds and following seas shipmate,

    Good luck! Deployments can be the greatest thing you've ever experience and the toughest at the same time. My first deployment was a UNITAS. Sometimes it was a lot of work, but the memories I have of that patrol will never leave.

    Quick question, what does the green Aiguillette represent?
