Saturday, 14 April, USSVI Blueback Base held their annual Submarine Birthday Brunch.
The Birthday cake was cut, using a Navy sword by the oldest qualified member at the party, Tudor Davis - 1943 USS Halibut (SS-232) and the youngest, Jay Agler - 1988 USS Greenling (SSN-614).
 
8 Base members were inducted into the HOLLAND Club.

Not a USSVI Member, but just realized I am "time in rate" eligible for Holland Club.

I qualified on the USS Queenfish (SS-393) 56 years and 3 days ago.  On 15 APR 62 at the 0800 muster topside our CO, LCDR Skirm, shook my hand, congratulated me and handed me a brand new shiny silver dolphins pin.  That was one of the most significant events in my life up to that time and, to this day, still remains one of the top several.  Inducted into the Holland Club in 2012.
