Alice's Last Days in the Navy - May 2007

Barry and Alice at retirement ceremony.
Read on.......

Alice is cutting the cake at Capt Omer's retirement celebration. I have the picture sequence way of out order. The main idea of this group of pictures is to show Alice's last days on active duty and to introduce Capt Omer. Capt Omer was Alice's boss while serving on active duty. Alice is pictured with her in the last picture of this section. It should have been the first. With this blog you have to post last first, etc. Oh well, the pictures are all here and all were taken at Capt Omer's ceremony. Capt Omer is a very gractious Lady who gave 30 years of her life to the service of Our Country and the United States Navy.

This is Alice standing at attention in from of Capt Omer's retirement cake. As I said, I have the sequence of these pics a little out of sequence.

Alice with the Director of Navy Nursing, Admiral Bruzek-Kohler. The Admiral is also in the next picture. It is difficult for me to get the pictures in sequence when posting on this Blog.

Here is Alice with LCdr Jack standing at attention at Capt Omer's retirement cake. The Lady standing in the center is Rear Admiral Christine Bruzek-Kohler who is the Director of the Navy Nurse Corps and Chief of Staff, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.

This is me with Alice and Commander Julia Buck. Julia was sent to Iraq and Alice was called to active duty to fill her position at the Navy Hospital. Julia's husband is a Marine Corps Major who works as a Flight Instructor. They truly are a Naval Services Family.

I had the pleasure of attending the retirement ceremony of Alice's Navy boss. Captain Laura Omer, NC, USN. A Captain in the Navy is the same as a full-bird Colonel in the other branches of service. Alice frequently spoke to me of Capt Omer and had the utmost respect for her. I met and visited with Capt Omer several times and she is truly an Officer and a Lady. She retires with 30 years of service to our Country and the United States Navy. Fair Seas, Ma'am.
