VASEY MESSAGE TO MIDSHIPMEN You have successfully completed one of the most demanding and rewarding phases of training leading to commission as a naval officer. In the short space of eight weeks we have participated in nearly every aspect of surface naval operations and shipboard life. The heavy schedule of exercises and the fast pace at which they have been conducted during this cruise have taxed the fullest measure of your abilities and experience. As third classmen, this has been your first meeting with the challenge to be found only at sea. For the first classmen who will shortly join the fleet as commissioned officers, this has been your most productive encounter with the practical responsibilities that will soon be yours. The maritime challenges facing our nation today are creating requirements for a high caliber officer force as never before in the history of our service. Your demonstrated performance throughout this cruise has proved you are ready to meet these requirements. ' ell done. L. R.
