A Busy Week!


This last Tuesday, the Battalion received a brief on the nuclear surface-warfare community from LCDR Wuthier and alumnus from the Husky Battalion. It was an excellent opportunity to learn another aspect of the Navy’s warfare communities from a distinguished officer. In addition, the Husky Battalion completed the first official PFA of the academic year.

Veterans Day!


Once again the Battalion observed Veterans Day by participating in the University of Washington Veterans Day Ceremony. The Midshipmen participated in a joint service formation with cadets from the other branches, which fell in on the symbolic 11th hour of the 11th day. The Battalion was privileged with speeches from Sen. Patty Murray, UW President Michael Young, Capt. Melin, and Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award recipient Charles Matthaei. For many of the Freshmen this was their first Veterans Day in uniform and helped showcase the importance of remembering those who came before.

Following An Eventful Week!


This week, the Husky Battalion was briefed on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) during Tuesday's drill. Sexual Assault is a serious problem and we must do everything we can to prevent such actions. We have the tools to prevent and respond to sexual assault. The more people who get involved, understand, and practice SAPR, the sooner we can "move to the left" of the problem. As leaders, we have an obligation to step in whenever we see potential sexual harassment and/or assault case that may arise. Do not be afraid; find the courage, speak up, and take action!
