Let's celebrate ...

We Americans look for any opportunity to celebrate with food. The U.S. Navy is no different. The Navy has a long tradition of baking a cake to honor any significant event.

PACIFIC OCEAN (Sept. 23, 2008) -- Lt. Cmdr. Matt Wells, left, Culinary Specialist 1st Class Emmanuel Torquido and Machinist Mate Fireman Denis Lipatnikov make the first cut into a cake during a ceremony commemorating the Battle of Flamborough Head on the mess decks aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6). The ceremony was held in memory of the fateful battle waged between the British ship HMS Serapis and Bonhomme Richard in 1779.
