We just received this photo that shows a couple of Galveston shipmates at the USS Wayne Meyer mast-stepping ceremony. Retired Rear Admiral Wayne Meyer is holding the presentation box with a USS Galveston command coin cradled within. It was given to the admiral by our other shipmate in the photo, Clarence Kirby, on the behalf of the entire USS Galveston Shipmates Association. A second Galveston coin was placed in mast box of DDG-108 to commemorate Admiral Meyer's service on the Gal. More info and photos on this event can be seen by scrolling down in this blog.
