Best Friends Ron Lewis Clarence Bridges Joe Encarnacao The Sasebo CPOA
Best Moment Finding out that over 150 Japanese Nationals wanted to attend my retirement when the previous retirements were attended by less than a dozen. Having my father pipe me over the side at retirement in full SDB. Mother being the guest speaker at commencement when I was awarded my BS degree.
Worst Moment The death of BM2 Cantrell followed a week later by the death of BT2 Leesman.
