Nobody beats him in the kitchen

We have ancient of days Navy veteran in the parish, now down in Erlanger-Murphy Medical Center Physical Therapy Rehab.


He likes to reminisce as much as I do. Lots of stories. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that no one beats him in the kitchen. On any ship or submarine, he was the one who ran the entire food sector, which, after propulsion, was the largest operation. He never had to worry about getting a court-martial over bad food, especially on a sub. It was prime rib and lobster all the way. Always the best food for enlisted sailors who earned the right to wear the “dolphins” as an SS (“Submarine Specialist”), and those on the way. He was also in charge of a number of aircraft carriers.

    I’m glad you were there for him to share his memories with Father. It is a joy for those nearing the end of their lives to have a visitor that takes a genuine interest in what is important to them.
