Hello all. We had an awesome turnout for the Bremerton
Armed Forces Day Parade. I want to thank each and every
Base member who participated. I think we had @ 25
members, and it was a great time. There was a great
crowd and we had a good time.I need to mention a few
•Vice Commander Don Carpenter - Don stepped in for Sam
and pulled the float this year. Great job on short
notice. Sam was not feeling well and could not attend.
Get better soon, Sam. Thank you Don.
•Base Member Larry Kramer - Larry was our taxi between
the Fleet Reserve and the parade. He was patient with us
and did a hell of a job. Thank you Larry.
• Vice Commander Don Carpenter,COB Wayne Peterson, and
the rest of the crew that helped set up the float. They
did a great job without our leader Sam Swenson present.
Well done guys.
•Jim DeMott - for once again helping me don the flag
belt. That thing kicks my ass every parade. I look
forward to carrying the colors with Jim for the
remainder of the parades this season.
We also had some awesome camaraderie after the parade at
the Horse and Cow. We had our colors on and had a good
time and met some new friends and hopefully recruited
some new members. Thanks to all for a great day.
If you have photos from the parade please share with Red
and Dave Pittman to get in Puget Soundings and Gertrude.
Next event is Memorial Day at Ivy Green Cemetery. It
normally begins at 1300. I will share more details in an
e-mail later in the week.
Take care friends. Be safe and see you soon. Cheers.
