    You guys have been represented well by the crew and command of the Maersk Alabama.

    I was up there last weekend, after a hockey tourney in Bourne, MA. Greatest location I could imagine.

    Email from admeral gurnon

    EMAIL to us cadets at MMA From MMA Admeral Gurnon.

    Hallelujah! All members of the extended Massachusetts Maritime Academy family are relieved that Captain Richard Phillips has been delivered safely to the U. S. Navy warships that have been guarding him these past 5 harrowing days. We rejoice with the Phillips family as we all anxiously await this sailor’s return from the sea.
    We salute the outstanding work of the officers and crew of the USS Bainbridge and USS Boxer who, along with the FBI, saved the life of our captain in a dramatic rescue. It is a great day to be associated with the maritime services!
    Despite the joy of this great news, we continue to pray for the families of the mariners still held hostage. Their future depends upon the continued focus of the international community on the problems that foment piracy and lawlessness in Somalia. We can not forget their plight nor can we stop our efforts at securing the waters of the world for the free and unmolested travel of the ships of all nations.
