What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Here at the USS WHIDBEY ISLAND(L*D 41) we are thankful for all of our hardworking sailors and the work they contribute each and everyday. Especially on holidays.

A special thanks is in order to our Culinary Specialists and Food Service Attendants that make sure our sailors are fed 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This Thanksgiving, they provided quite a spread, including two handmade bread cornucopias, ham, turkey and all the fixins!

With 36 years in the fleet, the Navy’s oldest non-nuclear powered warship, (besides the USS Constitution) the USS WHIDBEY ISLAND(L*D41) commissioned February 9, 1985 completed her final underway today on October 25, 2021.

A bittersweet moment for the crew as years of history were culminated in just a few hours. Regardless of time, the Whidbey Island will always be “First in Her class, First Always”.

Miguel Keith (1951 – 1970) was a United States Marine posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in Vietnam in May 1970. While in battle, despite being severely wounded, he advanced on enemy combatants, allowing his platoon to defeat a numerically superior opposing force. The expeditionary sea base USS Miguel Keith (ESB 5) is named in his honor. #HispanicHeritageMonth2021
