Quick Post: Just Another Day
A long day! We got underway as the sun rose this morning, spent two hours cruising down the St. Johns River and then four running all-out to make our planned rendezvous well out to sea with a cruiser and a couple of destroyers. By the time we'd finished pumping fuel to all customers it was nearly sunset. NOW I'm on duty on the bridge--I'll get off-watch at midnight and grab a few hours' sleep before we kick off another busy one tomorrow. And THAT, my friends, is how we in the naval logistics biz get it done!
