Congratulations to all new Shellbacks. The fine spirit exhibited in undergoing the initiation into the Solemn Mysteries of the Ancient Order of the Deep was indicative of your sportsmanship and salty ability to stand up when the 'going is rough.' May each of you proudly bear the title 'SON OF NEPTUNE' R. J. Foley, Capt., USN, Commanding.
