The Navy will hold a memorial service at Naval Station Norfolk Tuesday at 1 p.m. aboard the carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower to honor Capt. Tushar Tembe, who died suddenly Nov. 8 after collapsing at Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, Va., as he was debarking his ship, the carrier Harry S. Truman.
“For 27 years, Capt. Tembe has proudly served his country in the United States Navy,” Naval Air Force Atlantic said in a statement announcing the service. “We pause to reflect on the contributions he has made.”
The ceremony will include remarks from sailors “who have had the pleasure of serving with him,” AIRLANT said.
The Truman continues undergoing scheduled maintenance at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
