I hope everyone survived the 4th with all digits attached! 

Today is Day 1 of the 2019 IBARFF Cruise. Started off with a bang at the hotel this morning with a fire in the hotel kitchen. Our community was well represented as Retired Chiefs Kreckie and Nilo kept the throngs of traumatized guests under control outside the building while Retired Lt. Wagner was at the seat of the fire in the kitchen. We’re still working on finding Retired Chief Stewart….

Due to limited access to the internet during the cruise, there may be a few days next week when I won’t be able to put out a report. We’ll see how it goes…

So now as we head off for the ship, we close this week with the following stories…

Have a great weekend and be safe out there!
