Operation Deep Freeze DE(R)s visited many different places before, during and after their Antarctic deployments. Their crews participated in many traditional ceremonies of the seas, from crossing the: Equator; International Dateline; Antarctic Circle; transiting the Suez and Panama Canals; and Circling the Earth. From this page we'll share some of the excitement.
