On Thursday two huge vans plus a couple of personal vehicles were loaded with folks from the campground here and we went to the nearby Navy base at Panama City Beach. We were given a very interesting and educational tour of the diving school there. All branches of the military now use this same diving school so all the men and women are trained exactly the same way. All except for the Navy Seals. They have their own school in San Diego, I believe. After the tour we ate lunch at the Navy mess hall for a very reasonable price. It was a fun day, and everyone there learned that we could not last one minute in this intense training program. These divers are the cream of the crop of our young men and women, and we should be very proud of them.
