Last Known Activity
Lt. (j.g.) Ron Chamblis, a 19-year Navy veteran and former NCO, from Detroit, Mich., said when things get tense, some young sailors get depressed, some get a little scared and some get a little nervous. To keep morale high, Chamblis said, you get them all together and talk to them. "You say, 'Hey this is the world
situation at the present time. We're all familiar with our jobs. We know what we have to do. We're going to do it with the best performance. You guys are the best.'"
Other Comments:
Chamblis was a great leader especially during the time of war. I'll never forget him! He was the one who first called me "Kez" because he got tired of me correcting peoples pronounciation of my last name. I'd always scream at them saying, "Kez-Kez...not Quez" For some reason Chamblis always called me "Preacher", I never really acted like one but when I asked him why he called me that he said, "I have a got feeling you're going to preach. I can feel it." Boy was he on target...and I didn't realize it then!
