  1. It is too bad that the event is not open. Those who have been vaccinated should be given a different consideration. Some are spending thousands of dollars to be at this unique event and I would like to see the command take into consideration those factors and open this up to those of us who are vaccinated.

  2. Hi, I was an MM2 (SS) on the USS BREMERTON from 1985 to 1988. I went on to complete nearly 25 years of Naval service retiring as a Lieutenant Commander and I have to say that “everything I needed to know about the US Navy I learned on BREMERTON!” I live in the Pacific Northwest now and will be virtually attending the decommissioning ceremony at the Horse and Cow.
