Remembering the captain


The photo says it all:

Family, friends and shipmates gathered together on board the carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower during the Tuesday afternoon memorial service at Naval Station Norfolk for Capt. Tushar Tembe. Tembe, the commanding officer of the carrier Harry S. Truman, died unexpectedly Nov. 8 after collapsing as he was debarking his ship at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Tembe, 49, a naval aviator, assumed command of Truman last August. // U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Rob Rupp
