Hey, Shipmates.

It’s good to be here in Keflavik, Iceland. We’re visiting with VP-9 and VP-46 – two frontline squadrons from Whidbey Island, Washington, and they’re here on point in Iceland doing ASW missions day-in and day-out for the NATO Alliance. We’re in better shape because of them.

Want to say a shout-out to their families back home for supporting them and, also, a thanks to our partners here in Iceland for supporting us on deployment.

Thanks, Shipmates. We’ll see you out in the Fleet.
