I had a BLAST today with the sailors at  Naval Base Kitsap.  Your response was truly spectacular and made my job so enjoyable.  I appreciate the kindness and respect you gave, as I hope I in turn, expressed my appreciation for you.  I know many of you came off the ship to attend the training.  CMC Lynch, Chief Miller, PAC FLEET- and sailors- Thank you for hosting my “Happy hour” tour.

Here I am at stop #2 of my Washington State tour: Naval Station Everett.  I am really enjoying the nice cool weather.  I understand the love and beauty of the Pacific Northwest.  Very different from the desert, where I live! I once again on this run, had two awesome crowds today.  Thanks CMC Dugan and Pac Fleet for hosting the programs. Chief Dela Cruz and all the  sailors treated me like a brother.  The BBQ was off the hook, including Ben and Jerry’s for dessert.   Thank you for your service. You men and women are why our freedom is possible.

I’m thrilled to be here in Washington at beautiful Naval Air Station Whidbey Island!  The two crowds today at the Sky Warrior were so positive and responsive.  Thank you for allowing me to share my career and my story with you.  It is an honor any time I have the chance to serve ‘Those who Serve’!  The scenery up here is beautiful, though I did find a way to bring rain from Vegas with me!   NAS Whidbey Island is currently home to 17 active duty squadrons and 2 Ready Reserve squadrons. The air station also maintains a Search and Rescue Unit, flying three Sikorsky MH-60S Nighthawks and continues its long-standing role as a center of activity for Naval Air Reserve operations and training in the region.  Thank you for hosting my Happy Hour program.
