Sherry had several promotions, she has always received awards as a dedicated worker.
An awards ceremony at her work area. Below I am holding a Mutton Snapper.
The Red Snapper on a day we all shared the boat.
Below which you cannot see much of was a Bob Hope show. He stopped by on his way back from a tour of Vietnam. He had Charlie Pride, and Neil Armstrong with him.
My girl on a bike and a score board Mark was proud of, he pitched and allowed only one run.
At Ferry landing on one of our trips.
A group of kids from the Chapel, at Kittery Beach for sun and fun teaching. Below was one of my painting story telling times.
Kids from the defense housing neighborhood below.
We moved from Defense Housing to Regular Housing. after a couple years.
These were our new next door neighbors, this doesn’t give a good shot of the new houses but they were concrete block construction with a lot of jalousie windows.
We spent 3 1/2 years aboard Gitmo Many folks could not understand that, but we understood perfectly, this was family time, IT WAS ALL SEA TIME. I went to GITMO for a 2 yr hitch, but I extended after doing more figuring, I would never have to go to sea again.
The stories are too many of course to list, but suffice to say, this was truly our best tour of duty in the military.
Thanks for staying with me.
It is hard to argue with military duty where you do not have to spend nights away from your wife and family.
