November 29, 2017, during a visit to the port of Odessa, the US Navy destroyer USS James E. Williams hosted a traditional chef meeting of the personnel of the ship and the students of Ushynsky University.
During the meeting, the members of the crew and the students of the University conducted a joint work to bring order in the training building "Time of Labor Assistance", which ended in sports and friendly communication.
On behalf of the Rector, Academician O. Ya. Chebykin, the team of the destroyer was awarded credentials and honors.
We are grateful to the representative of the US Military Attache in Ukraine, David Lungis, and the commander of the ship, Alan Sygrist, for an event in which regular meetings between American sailors and university students are becoming traditional.
