jodie brekenridge made things happen. what you see today is a big part of what jodie has made happen. my job is to introduce a number of people, but the first person i want to bring up here is the biggest supporter in san francisco of what we're trying to achieve. the mayor of our great city and county of san francisco. he talks the talk and walks the walk. please help me welcome mayor ed lee. [applause] >> thank you. good morning everybody. or good afternoon. what a wonderful day. this week every single day we waken, my staff has given me a list of all events. i looked at it and said, we're
12:52 pm
going to do all that and look outside here and today you see this weather, no wonder it's been said that we're going to stretch out fleet week not only this week, but more year round. if we can encourage this kind of weather every single day, that's what we're going to do. thank you again, general myatt for your leadership. i want to single you out. general myatt, because you provided that very special leadership for our fleet week association to bring together all of the different elements and keep them focusd and progressing. i have constantly praised senator finestein for bringing this fleet week aboard since 1981. i told her that again as we were aboard the u.s.s. macon to celebrate these opportunities and to be joined, of course by
12:53 pm
our marine corps, u.s. coast guard. united states navy, the canadian fleet as well and they're leadership. this is a special week and we have of course many activities. but this is one that i have focused on much because it's not only a celebration and a thank you to our men and women in uniform, but all we're practicing those very things, those now progressive things that we're identifying that are gaps, ones that i continue thanking our city agencies, our port, office of emergency management and all the agencies in the city are so appreciative of this opportunity and the practice what they have been learning on table exercises. and then to get to see the landing of a hover craft on ocean beach. to be able to talk to the actual navy personnel as to how they
12:54 pm
can do a pop-up tent of an emergency trauma center at ocean beach within an hour and communicate and practice that exercise is invaluable to our city as we prepare more and more the details and gain on the expertise that our military has with respect to logistics. this is what makes us so happy, charlotte, to be in our great city. i know you wake up saying we're so lunge to be in san francisco. thanking george again for his leadership. it's an honor to host this. anita and i are so lucky to be in this city and be the mayor of the city. the intelligence and the fortitude to have everybody working together and advance on the celebration and preparedness and to celebrate the humanitarian assistance that our forces have. and with that, if i may, i would
12:55 pm
like to welcome up someone who had the distinguished career in the united states navy, and also has welcomed me aboard the u.s.s. macon a couple times this week, but also i want to single out my interests in his past, not only has he had so much leadership in the u.s. navy, but i note for you this man has had practice of landing on our aircraft carrier some 1067 times. admiral beman, please come forward. >> we didn't get a chance to do this last evening. the mayor has as busy a schedule as anyone in the crowd as all of us collectively. i would like to take the
12:56 pm
opportunity to present a plaque in honor what the mayor has meant to san francisco fleet week and a small token of the service, may you display it proudly in your office or whenever there's room. i am sure you have been honored so many times. i can't thank you enough for your >> thank you so much.

not ladies or gentlemen, but if you know some of them. i want to say thank you to the st. francis yacht club and the san francisco fleet association for hosting this once again. [applause] >> this is my second year of being able to take part in the festivities for fleet week. second year to be hosted at the st. francis yacht club and the highlight of the week. being here would be the highlight of any week, let alone any week. what a perfect day to be overlooking the san francisco bay, the golden gate bridge, the golden gateway to the specific. celebrating the relationship we have between the city, the neighborhood and the sea services. i could thing of no better way
12:58 pm
to celebrate the rich maritime history than being here today and i would like to say that third fleet dialed up this weather for you, but that would be selfish on my part. i can tell you as a sailor entering into a port such as this, it makes you feel like coming home. and as you'll see today, the ships are recreating a path that has been crossed by millions of sailors dating back to our world wars, the golden gate bridge for many of them was the last thing they saw of the american soil and the first they saw when they came home. for us today, showing that recreating that path way if you will, it's a huge complement to the city for the way that you have always embraced our returning sailors, marines and coast guardsman that served forward and are finally coming
12:59 pm
home again. the parade of ships is a visible display of a partnership between the bay area and the sea services that has been strengthened. just this week, we brought together military leaders, local and state leaders and industry to discuss something that is important to all of us. when the next natural disaster or crisis takes place on our home ground, assembling the team that's going to take care of that has been a wonderful thing. we can't imagine where we would be had we not conducted these senior leadership conferences the last couple years. building partnerships is something we consider important to our nation and the service in particular. as i mentioned last evening, just this last
