After a breakfast hosted by the Coast Guard, we watched his company march.
And it was there that we got our first glimpse of him. As the tallest person in his company, standing at 6'6", he was chosen to carry the U.S. flag as part of the color guard. SO proud!
His grandfather, as a Navy veteran, was able to give him his graduation certificate. What a proud moment! Tears flowed!
Indescribable happiness and pride that he has chosen to serve our country!
Then we moved on into the town of Cape May, New Jersey for a celebratory lunch at The Blue Pig Tavern at Congress Hall. Congress Hall is Cape May's oldest hotel, dating to 1816. We loved it's grand and patriotic entrance!
"Fair winds and following seas" to our Coastie!
