Observing National Maritime Day aboard the M/V Honor
On May 22 at 1230 hours local, while at sea from Charleston to Bremerhaven, the M/V Honor held an onboard National Maritime Day ceremony. The all-hands event included learning about the history of National Maritime Day from Third Mate Bucholz and hearing this year's Presidential Proclamation read by both Kings Point and Maine Maritime Academy cadets. We ended with eight bells struck on the ship bell followed by a moment of silence.
