      Midshipmen at the California Maritime Academy 0900 April 30, 2011 recite oath of office. Left to Right: Ensign Alvin Alcaide, Surface Warfare, Evans Lundstrom, Naval Aviation, Chelsea Martin, Merchant Marine Reserve, and Samuel Rouse, Merchant Marine Reserve. Commander Michael Kazek, USCG (Ret) conducts oath ceremony. At the podium, Master of Ceremonies Lieutenant David Oldham, USN, Instructor and Lieutenant D'Marie Ellison, Officer in Charge, MMR Detachment 71. Seated Rear Admiral William B. Eisenhardt, USMS, President, California Maritime Academy and the Navy Chaplain.
      The two receiving Merchant Marine Reserve commissions are headed to Norfolk Virginia for Military Sealift Command orientation and training then on to some time at sea aboard a MSC ship. Third Engineer I believe.
      There was a break between the commissioning and the awards ceremony. That afternoon was the graduation of the senior class. The principal address at the graduation was by our friend Carl Nolte, Reporter and Columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and President, National Liberty Ship Memorial SS. JEREMIAH O'BRIEN. Vice Admiral Manson Brown, USCG, Commander, Pacific Area, and Commander, Coast Guard Defense Force West, gave the USCG licencing oath at the graduation.
      Three Navy League councils presented awards, Placer County, San Francisco, and Vallejo. A host of other awards are presented by maritime organizations and businesses, service clubs, the Academy, and individuals.
