The summer of 2005 may have been life changing for 3/C Cadet Zachary Tuskowski from Monroe, Connecticut. Perhaps he thought about a career at sea as he happily rowed back and forth in his family's dingy.
As he stood at the helm of the Tuskowski's 34-foot Rinker, he may have dreamed that one day he'd be standing on the bridge of a much larger vessel.
Well Zachary, your dream has come true!
Zachary is a Marine Transportation major at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, standing watch on the bridge of the TS Kennedy.
