Colleagues, shipmates, friends,
I have completed my turnover with CDR Abe Thompson, and will departing for PACOM in mid-August. I leave C3F confident that C3F IW/Cryptology is in very good hands. Abe, along with CDR(Sel) Mike Elliot, LT Eren Cataloglu, and our extremely talented and capable CT Chiefs and crew (coupled with an outstanding N2 department and N39 crowd) will no doubt continue to perform superbly supporting THIRD Fleet and the nation.
It has been a pleasure and a rewarding experience working with all of you and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future. Thank you for your support both professionally and personally.
Take care and God bless,
Vr/CDR Dietz (Eric)
NOTE: That, ladies and gentlemen is a class act. Not surprising that Commander Dietz was recently selected for Captain.
