COMFLEACTS Sasebo- Congrats to “I Killed” raffle book winner: Chris Graumann!!

Posted on by Bernie in News | 26 Comments

I have officially made it to Sasebo, my second trip to Japan in two months and I am excited to be back!!   Man, did I have a blast today.  The two standing room only crowds in the SHOWBOAT THEATER were rocking big time.  You know how international travel can be: It takes you a day, two or one WEEK to recover! I  did not know what to expect taking the stage 24 hrs after landing but you Sailors were outstanding and kind to me.  Made my mission very enjoyable and I hope I returned the favor.  DAPA’s Chief Thomas and MA1 Oslund executed a great training and CMC Davis provided a great introduction.  This was a great honor to team with great OPNAV initiative  for this Inspirational Summit!
