Navy League, NY Council Reception for Officers & Commanders - Fleet Week

This wonderful Fleet Week event returned last night after a one year hiatus due to gov't cutbacks.  The Reception for Officers and Commanders, held at the prestigious New York Athletic Club on Columbus Circle, hosted dozens of military personnel for an evening of cocktails, hors d'ouerves and socializing.  It was an honor to be there among our distinguished service men and women.  Here are some of my photos:

The open air terrace offered another space in which to relax and socialize.

The ball room was filled to capacity with members of the military, spouses, friends and supporters.

The captains of each ship in New York harbor for Fleet Week were announced with a bosun's whistle and bell, in a traditional military ceremony.
