Raising the colors

Happy Independence Day

R/V Neil Armstrong second mate Mike Singleton finishes hoisting the colors on the ship's mast during a recent port call in New York City for Fleet Week 2017. In addition to the Stars and Stripes are the WHOI flag on and the flag of the Office of Naval Research (ONR). The U.S. Navy built the Neil Armstrong to support oceanographic research because a better understanding of the ocean is critical to our national security and prosperity.
