Our Repair Ship had been back in our home port only for a couple of weeks when at Monday morning muster. Our Department head chief MLMC said. "The Old-Man has just set down his new order of the day. Due to the recent heavy work load we are experiencing. All Liberties will be cancelled for the next two weeks. All departments will switch to 12 hour shifts during that period or until our work load subsides. After muster my second class in our shop proceeded to write out a Liberty chit for the next Friday starting at 0800 and ending at 0600 Monday morning and turned it in. To all of are amazement it came back that afternoon approved. I asked him. "How did you ever get it approved." He replied. " My reason for the requests that my one armed Grandmother was coming to visit and she had two suitcases." Ill bet the Old-Man kept that one for his Retirement Party.
