The May 2018 Newsletter

I'm releasing the May RecceNet Newsletter a couple of days early for a couple of reasons -First, we are in the process of moving! We take possession of our new place on the 1st of May so our current place is in a controlled form of chaos.

But being Navy veterans (both of us are!) we are accustomed to moves and chaos...And since we'll be moving soon, my computer will…See More

Hi Bill,

   I worked nights all the time with Craig Roberts, Tom Kirven, Glenn Watson, John Woods, Bill Bare (and some that I do not remember). 

I remember doing Shore Patrol duty in Barcelona, Spain...bringing drunken sailors back to the pier!
