Summary of Submarine
Veterans Bremerton Base Meeting
(Updated 29 Mar 2015)
for the late update, but the last SubVets meeting last Saturday was
a huge success. Former MCPON, Rick West, was our guest
speaker. He gave us great insight of the future of the Navy and the
direction that everything is heading.
Vice Commander, Steve
Corcoran, handed Rick a battle coin for being our guest speaker
and putting together a great presentation.
In addition, the dolphin dash is fast approaching and are in still
need of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or sign up for
the race please go to

Base Secretary Wayne
There were over 35 base members who turned out to listen to Retired
MCPON Rick West talk to the base members. He recognized
various members in the audience who he served with. He addressed the
forward deployed bases Guam and Spain and said the crews were very
accepted of being home ported overseas. He said Guam is becoming a
very popular homeport. The pride and morale are very high in the
submarine force. He answered questions about the submarine force and
China, Russia and their submarines.
The business meeting followed with the various reports. We still
need a fireworks stand chairman and if no one steps forward we will
operate the stand with a different person in charge daily. Like a
duty chief watch bill. We still need a scholarship and raffle
The next meeting will be Tuesday April 21, 2015 at 1900.
