FROM THE CHAPLAIN’S DESK - DECEMBER 2018
As I write this, I’m finishing 25 years of various
jobs in our Association.
In the early years the makeup was mostly WWII and Korea. Little by little, Korean faded into the background, then Vietnam, the peace years, Desert Storm, etc – and the beat goes on.
I sit and watch you swab jockeys do your thing, year after year. Why? What makes you tick? What makes me tick?
We are Navy! That’s why. All of us have worn the uniform of the best navy the world has ever known.
Peacetime or war, we brush the salt spray from our
blues’, climb a proverbial gangplank somewhere and plop our seabag by locker,
that we will learn to call home.
