[R] Date variable

Dear R users,    

  I did following with a date variable    

  date = "03/11/05"
date = as.Date(date, format="%m/%d/%y")
[1] "2005-03-11"

s = vector(length=3)
s[1] = date
[1] 12853

  But here I got s[1] as 12853. But this is not that I want. I need s[1] as original date.    

  Can anyone tell me where is the mistake?    

  Thanks and regards,
