Veterans Day, 2018 – Part 2

Today is the official observance of Veterans Day which was yesterday.  Anything for a Monday holiday, I guess.

Yesterday I received the picture below.  It’s Captain Blanks who was my captain on the USS WILLIAM H. STANDLEY (DLG-32) when I served as Navigator.

I learned so much from him concerning duty, honor and commitment.  I also learned never to assume. We went through a lot of experiences together, some very challenging.  And, we had a lot of laughs together.

I’m also happy to call him a brother-in-Christ.

Finally, notice the cap he’s wearing – WWII, Korea, Vietnam Veteran.  Not many people can wear that cap.

Capt Blanks

God’s blessings Captain and fair winds and smooth seas.
