I was in the Blue Jacket Choir in August-September 1967 at San Diego. What a privilege this was! It was a fun adventure and, at times, a real challenge. I also was on the whale boat who delivered Coronado to the beach of San Diego so he could "discover" California. The press was waiting for him to be delivered to the shore so the could interview him.
I believe the chief who taught us how to handle this boat was quite impressed by our eventually-learned rowing expertise. I think(?) there were nine of us who trained for an hour or so for about a week. Man could we oar that boat thru the water!
Seems I made about 5 or 6 graduations. It's really a little anti-climactic when you sing for your own graduation, huh?
I was blessed to be in the Blue Jacket Choir. Still hum the Navy Hymn every-once-in-a while and certainly "Anchors Aweigh".
God bless the BJC and all you squids everywhere!
