a ceremony held in Kingsland on Oct. 26, 2015. The
Camden Partnership led the effort to receive this historic designation.
Council board members also helped the MSST celebrate “Christmas in March” during the unit’s quarterly
awards ceremony. Members of the team were deployed
over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, so the
council recognized their dedication and commitment
by hosting lunch after the ceremony, according to a
report on the council’s website.
Unit Commanding Officer Lt. Cmdr. Eric Casper was
joined by several team members, Council President
Sam Colville and Keith Post, executive director, St.
Marys Submarine Museum, to cut a ceremonial “Happy
Belated Christmas Cake,” donated by the St. Marys
“We hope our small gesture showed how much we
appreciate and care about our adopted unit and their
families,” the council noted on its website.
New York Council Gets Briefing from
Royal Navy Commodore
Members of the New York Council and Morgan
Stanley personnel enjoyed one of the most thought-provoking national security briefings to date when U.K.
Royal Navy Commodore Jerry Kyd, commanding officer
of HMS Queen Elizabeth (the first of two new British
aircraft carriers), spoke to the group on Nov. 10 at a
breakfast hosted by Morgan Stanley.
Kyd came to New York a day early to speak at the
breakfast, according to a report from Council President
Ted Mason, before being the guest speaker at a dinner
hosted by the American Friends of the National Museum
of Royal Navy.
What made the briefing unusually good was the
commodore’s engaging style, and a free flow of questions and answers following the talk, Mason said.
