This morning we awarded and said our farewells to Lieutenant Commander Jon Schemel. LCDR Schemel has been an integral part of our Beach Group team as our Operational Support Officer. He managed the planning, training, and utilization of our Reserve Component , numerous MPF operations and JLOTS. Our most recent JLOTS 2021 in Albania being the most successful in 30 years! LCDR, your expertise and leadership will be sorely missed as you go on to do great things for our Navy. Fair Winds and Following Seas!!!!!
