    The cadets(other than firsties) learned of their summer assignments today. My son will be doing an internship in Washington, D.C. the first half of the summer, then serve on the USCGC Hollyhock, a seagoing buoy tender out of Port Huron, Michigan. Link to pictures of the ship.

    No Navy exchange for cadets during the summer, although it is an option second tour JO, as a navigator.
