Captain Thomas Dearborn, who commanded USS Somerset, reflects on his military career

U.S. Naval Captain Thomas Dearborn retired on October 1, 2017 after serving nearly 30 years and captaining three ships, including the September 11th ship the USS Somerset, writes Jordan Houdeshell in Mainecampus.com.

An immigrant from Korea, who came to the United States as a child, Captain Dearborn said, “Not many folks have the opportunity to command one ship so with me having the opportunity to command three ships, I consider that an awesome privilege that you would not get anywhere in the world except in the United States.”
