Shipmates, Members and Friends of Naval Photography,
As we enter the Easter and Passover holidays, I would like to take time to wish everyone peace during this very blessed Holy season.
It looks like we are getting past this Covid nightmare. By the time the reunion rolls around I expect everyone should have had all of their shots and hopefully ready to travel. As everyone knows this is the 100th year of the Navy Photographer. Time to celebrate this notable milestone and our service to the US NAVY! 100 years of our work, some of which I imagine will be on display. We are fortunate to have Jim Russell’s boots on the ground in Pensacola, he has outdone himself by scoring another Blue Angel Weekend. He worked around the damage to the Three Mile Bridge and has set up a remarkable weekend.
I have had inquiries from members on the west coast so perhaps we will see some faces we haven’t seen in a long time. There are many instructors who retired in the Pensacola area as well – this will be a great chance to reconnect with some of your students of years gone by.
