To all who have served, and are currently serving....
You my have deepest gratitude and respect for your service to our country.
I had a post scheduled, but must have messed something up, as it didn't post.
I would have posted this morning, but I spent the entire day on the Iowa helping with tours, and assisting a film crew, but mostly operating NI6BB.
We had a very nice memorial service and wreath ceremony this morning at 0900, before the ship opened to the public.
And since there's a film crew aboard, some of the tour route was changed, resulting in a few people getting "lost" a bit, and having to be shepherded back onto the tour route, and out of the areas not normally open to the public.
When I got to the starboard side hatch for the Communications Center this morning, the hatch was closed, but not dogged.
I didn't realize how heavy the hatch was, having never opened it before. It swings easily on the hinges, but has a lot of mass, so getting it moving, and stopping it again, took a bit of muscle.
Hope y'all had a great day!
