President’s Corner June 2018

Hope this change in the weather is finding you well. The good news is that the days are getting longer and we are getting warmer weather. The bad news is its allergy season, with all the eyes watering and noses running

Armed Forces Weekend was an unqualified success. The week started on Thursday with a senior enlisted salmon barbeque at the Kiana Lodge. It is an opportunity for your Navy League to say “Thank You” to the hard working senior enlisted, the backbone of the Sea Services. On Saturday, was the Armed Forces Day parade followed by the Gala. Many thanks to RADM Mayes for being the Gala guest speaker. Thanks also to Congressman Kilmer for to joining us and speaking. There were several comments that the food was excellent; some of the best they have ever had at the Admiral Theater. None of this would have been possible without the hard work of our Armed Forces week Chairman, Larry Salter and committee members Alan Beam, Tim Katona and Helen Miller.

We held a welcome home reception for the USS Bremerton (SSN-698) and her crew at the beginning of May. The USS Bremerton has arrived at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for inactivation and decommissioning. Past Council President Alan Beam and former Bremerton city mayor Patty Lent are chairing a committee to permanently honor the boat as she is recycled.

The June luncheon should not to be missed. Lt Gov Habib will be our speaker. He represented the State of Washington at the commissioning of the USS Washington (SSN-787) last fall.
