Shameless Name Dropping!

All the excitement in our area of operations recently has made FAST Company very popular among a number of important people (as well as keeping me from posting). Recently the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, visited NSA Bahrain and took a little time to hang out with some of the World’s Finest. I thought it was pretty cool of him.

The Admiral greets my Duty NCO and A/Duty after they blew his eyebrows off reporting their post. 
America’s 1stSgt greets the Chairman assuring him no more Marines will yell at him. In return I receive a coin as heavy as a man hole cover. 
Of course we didn’t let the Chairman go empty handed. He now has a favorite t-shirt.
After visiting the company office Admiral Mullen hung out with the Marines for lunch. We had the whole room to ourselves. The Admiral spent about an hour and a half talking with the Marines winding it all up personally handing each of them a coin.

Just another ho-hum day of VIP juggling and mean mugging the forces of evil where ever they show their heathen faces. 

Semper Fidelis!

  1. “…assuring him no more Marines will yell at him”

    Snorfles… (wipes coke from monitor)
    Well I’m glad he got to see you all Au-Naturale-Marine 😀


  2. A Good officer will always be willing to talk to those who serve…
    A Great officer makes sure that the “Dogs of War” are always well fed before he opens his mouth. ;~}

    A “COIN as heavy as a manhole cover” … Cool … We all know that you’ve “got the muscles” to lift it too.
