NAS Whiting Field's much-loved Commanding Officer Capt. Rick Sadsad (call sign HappyHappy) was wished farewell with a golf tournament at the base's golf course Monday. Pen Air FCU was there to wish Capt. Sadsad all the best until he returns to the area after his retirement.

Of course, there had to be the ceremonial cake cutting, too. Capt. Sadsad's assignment at Whiting lasted two years and he will now travel to the Persian Gulf to be commander at Naval Support Activity in Bahrain.
