In addition, the crew will be honored guests at the Billings' city council meeting, at which they will be presenting the USS Billings' shield, entitled, "big sky over trouble water"

"Well first initial thought is it's awesome here," Commander Nathan Rowan said. "I mean, coming from Florida. It's plenty of sunshine here, and were ready to enjoy all the festivities of interacting with the council, and citizens here in Billings."
