This morning we arrived in Kwajalein Atoll, which is one of the world's largest atolls with the lagoon inside the atoll covering over 800 square miles. Thanks to the hospitality of the U.S. Army Garrison Kwajalein Atoll, we will be able to get some much needed rest on the island and resupply the ship. It was a get expedition and while we are all sad it is over, we are looking forward to setting foot on solid ground again after 24 days at sea.
