  • The PAX - Grass Fairy, Zebco (Jr.), Beamer, Mrs. Potts, Crews
  • AO - Tank Yard

Four Pax gathered in an extra-gloomy tank yard and promptly found the nearest picnic shelter to try and dodge the raindrops. Beamer rolled in a few minutes later, with Crews a few minutes after that. Jokes were made about Church Lady and skipping jumpming jacks…

Warm Up:
Some SSHs, Some IWs, Some Mumblechatter, who can really say? Its almost as if the author of this post missed a portion of the warm up

The Thang:
Today we honored Master-at-Arms 3rd Class Oscar Temores, U.S. Navy, who was killed when his patrol car was struck by a vehicle that forcibly sped through the security checkpoint at the main gate of Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, Virginia Beach, VA, on November 30, 2019.

The vehicle entered Fort Story at Gate 8 on Atlantic Avenue by driving the wrong way in the outbound lanes at a high rate of speed at 7:35 pm. Personnel at the gate immediately requested assistance and MA3 Temores began to respond to the scene. The civilian driver of the vehicle intentionally struck MA3 Temores’ patrol car head-on.

MA3 Temores had served with the U.S. Navy Security Forces for only 10 months. He is survived by his wife and 2-year-old son.

Prayers for the expecting Fathers in the group, and that we could take this energy into the rest of our day.
