Welcome Home, Men Of The Asheville!
USS Asheville returned home on Wednesday from the boat's 7th WestPac; here's a picture of the homecoming:
I'm trying to decide if the beginning of December is just about the best time to finish a deployment, and I think it might be. The only problem is that the last part of your I & I gets folded in with the Christmas stand-down; on the other hand, it makes it much less likely that Big Sub Force will be tempted to cut back on your post-deployment down time.
In any event, Welcome Home to the returning warriors!
