Today marks one year since the Washington Navy Yard tragedy

An excerpt from  Vice Adm. Hilarides’ post regarding the Washington Navy Yard shootings that happened one year ago today.  “NAVSEA is not just a bunch of offices and people; we’re a family.  And, just as families come together to celebrate in times of joy, they also come together to aid one another in times of need and over the past year I have been heartened beyond words to see our people come together to support one another.   The road to recovery has not been easy, but we’re on the right path and more importantly we’re not alone on that path.”

A remembrance ceremony was held this morning at 8AM, during which Hilarides read the names and a bell tolled for each of the fallen.
