Officers Open Mess,Coast Guard Academy: New London, CT
What a pairing… an antique desk with fake flowers and white wicker. Still, I was expecting something much more sterile from this setting. I had never, despite all my years in business in New London, been to the Academy. What a spot overlooking the Thames River and beautifully planted and manicured. Can’t say much for the lunch which I thankfully did not have to eat as I had a prior lunch date. Did hear a survivor of Hitler’s death camps and a Vet who was part of the liberation of Dachau speak of their experiences. One can never stop being stunned at what we do to each other in the name of some higher goal. Yet we continue to let it happen.
