Our monthly workday on the USS Missouri was with the Waipahu and Pearl City Key Clubs. We cut, drilled, sanded, stamped (Vicky in photo), oiled, and refinished many teak bookmarks. We reworked many bookmarks that were rejected by our quality control crew. These were bookmarks that were finished by other groups.
We helped to put up the welcome banner for RIMPAC. The Rim of the Pacific Exercise, is the world’s largest international maritime warfare exercise. RIMPAC is held biennially during June and July of even-numbered years from Honolulu, Hawaii. This year, China was excluded and the Army and Air Forces were added to the exercises.
