In Accordance with Strict Naval Tradition

Know all ye by these presents: and to all flea-bitten, sand-blasted, sweat-soaked salts of the seven seas, greetings. Know ye that I will now be working part-time at the Marina maintaining a fleet of small craft. I'm hoping that the skills I pick up on the Potomac might translate very soon to skills of great value, if I am ever lucky enough to patrol the Euphrates with the Marines of the Haditha Dam Security Force. (And when I went to the marina for the interviewed it felt good to be rocking on a boat again.)
