BOSTON, Mass. (WAVY) - USS Fort McHenry recently spent three days in Newport, R.I. and paid a visit to the USS Constitution in Boston.
In Newport, the crew of USS Fort McHenry gave tours of the ship to future chief engineers, prospective supply officers and the Surface Warfare Officer School staff. During the visit, the crew went to Boston to see the USS Constitution and museum.
“It was interesting to see the differences between the past and modern day Navy,” Ens. Stephanie Migut said. “It was definitely harder times back then. I couldn’t believe they only received one gallon of water each day!”
It was the first time many had ever visited Boston.
“We sent more than 50 Sailors to Boston to conduct tours on the USS Constitution,” said Kellum. “Fifty-six Sailors completed the Basic Firefighting course, and we provided tours to SWOS staff, prospective chief engineers, and supply officers.”
