That is absolutely incredible. Thanks, Nam Vet for your service and for letting us know about this. This is the first I had head of it. I still have a LOT of friends here in Naval District Washington (both active and retired, including a half a dozen Admirals or so) and I'll be forwarding this to all of them.
I'm a retired Navy Senior Chief, (1984-2004) and if I'm in town that weekend, I'll be there standing shoulder to shoulder with my brothers and sisters.
