On this date, 234 years ago the US Navy was founded. Since those humble beginnings it has evolved into the most powerful maritime force the world has ever seen. Although there is no ocean for hundreds of miles, a stalwart crew of sailors met together in the chow hall to commemorate the occasion with a few words, a rousing chorus of Anchors Aweigh, and finally the cutting of the cake.
Thankfully one of the KBR employees in the chow hall, John, is a retired Navy Senior Chief. He arranged for the cake and all the decorations. Our Navy Augmentees here at Camp Spann work in over 8 different units and staff sections to support the US and NATO mission. The cake was very good as well.
