Happy Father's Day!
Happy Father's Day to all GONZALEZ Dads and Navy Dads everywhere! And congratulations to two GONZALEZ families who welcomed new Sailors to their families on Father's Day Weekend! It's great to be home and celebrate with family and friends this year, but I thought I would share a few photos and memories from last year's deployment when we celebrated Father's Day at sea in the Mediterranean. GONZALEZ had just left Souda Bay Crete a few days before and was enroute to Augusta Bay Sicily. In addition to our Sunday at sea routine, we held a special Father's Day celebration which included individualized gift bags for all the father's, music, a Steel Beach Picnic, video messages and songs from our families, and a flight deck movie. -CO
