gerry,

I spent three years at PSNS, finishing up in 1979.

I have to chuckle about how we dealt with reports of a bomb - always called in anonymously, always around 1130-1145, and always resulting in lunch hour starting early and thus being extended.  Not a one was real, but, of course, we had to treat them as real.

I certainly hope this is a hoax.  We never involved off-Yard police, and the notion of stopping the Bremerton Ferry never arose.  Of course, I guess the potential for larger explosives now compared to then may have changed things.

BREMERTON, Wash. — Explosive ordnance experts have determined that a suspicious package left inside the gate of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard near a ferry terminal in Bremerton is not an explosive threat.

Bremerton Police closed Pacific Avenue South to the ferry terminal early Thursday afternoon after police say a person placed the item just inside the gate of the shipyard at Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton.

Naval Base Kitsap spokesman Jake Chappelle said Thursday afternoon that Navy technicians determined the package is not a threat but authorities were examining it for hazardous materials.

Personnel on the base were asked to stay inside while authorities investigated.

The ferry route between Seattle and Bremerton was temporarily suspended but was back up and running by 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
