U.S. Navy Chief of Naval Operations extends condolences to Poland
On behalf of the men and women of the U.S. Navy, I extend our deepest condolences to our fellow sailors in the Polish navy for the loss of their Navy Commander-in-Chief Vice Admiral Andrzej Karweta as well as their president and other national leaders in the tragic plane crash April 10.

On behalf of the men and women of the U.S. Navy, I extend our deepest condolences to our fellow sailors in the Polish navy for the loss of their Navy Commander-in-Chief Vice Admiral Andrzej Karweta as well as their president and other national leaders in the tragic plane crash April 10.

The Polish navy is one of our closest allies. During his tenure as Navy Commander-in-Chief, Karweta ensured that the Polish navy served as leaders in NATO and set a standard of excellence in maritime operations throughout the Baltic Sea and beyond.

At the International Seapower Symposium this past October in Newport, Fla., Karweta expressed strong support for expanding maritime cooperation among navies worldwide. He was an outstanding naval officer, a dedicated leader and a friend who will be greatly missed.

During this time of extraordinary grief in Poland, the U.S. Navy shares in the sadness and sympathy felt by all of Poland's friends at the loss of Karweta and so many other gifted leaders. We ask the sailors of the Polish navy and the people of Poland to accept our sincerest condolences for your loss.
