In the past, the Bremerton Base has taken up a collection to provide a holiday gift for a worthy cause. This year, the Base continues the tradition and once again has selected the Retsil Veteran’s Home. Money raised will go for buying phone cards and other gifts for the veterans residing at the home.
Building and maintaining Base cohesion is an ongoing and never-ending process. Scheduled meetings, memorial services, shared trips, picnics, parades and projects all help us to grow closer as a SUBVET family, enjoying each other’s company, while we honor our fallen heroes and support our current day submarine forces.
all our members have busy lives and many demands on their time, yet many
willingly set aside the time to actively participate in USSVI related
activities and functions. While many members are relatively new to USSVI, we
have others who have maintained faithful allegiance for 5, 10, 15, 20 and
When a member achieves a milestone year, it is altogether fitting to recognize and acknowledge their longevity in USSVI. This year, the listed members have reached a longevity milestone. The Bremerton Base would like to say “Thank You” for staying the course in USSVI and helping to make it what it is today.
Deterrent Park - Fall Engraved Bricks Installed
(Posted 11- 20-2013)
On Sunday, Nov17th, my relief,
Mike Sullivan, installed 4 bricks in addition to
a replacement for the MOH flag brick that was
damaged last summer.
Please note that the appearance
of the bricks will be similar to those
above them, installed last year. It was raining
and we also used some solution to remove the
white color in some places that will be
effective in the near future.
We have one donated brick order in house for a May, 2114 install. You may want to consider a donating engraved bricks as Christmas presents for family members or respected shipmates.
Go to this page for details. Happy Thanksgiving./Red
