Two years ago, SES Defiant, Ship178, Philadelphia had the opportunity to
cruise with the USS Peterson (969) from Penns Landing, Phila., to Norfolk.
The crew was wonderful to us and many Explorers spent almost the entire time
(all night) on the bridge. The onset of fog made things even more interesting
and the captain was generous with his time and explained a great deal to our
members. The trip was set up quickly between the now closed Philadelphia
Naval shipyard and council. It was a great experience for all and one we
shall not forget. The navy got two recruits I think mainly from that trip.
