Washington State COVID Phase by County

 

698 Shipmates want to know “How is Washington State, particularly Kitsap County doing in regards to COVID phase?”

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: MAY 4, 2021. Governor of Washington pauses any change to COVID phases for 2 weeks due to most recent indications that recent wave has passed a plateau and appears to be receding. This means that no changes are expected prior to the Bremerton’s DECOM date.

USS BREMERTON – THE WORLD’S FASTEST – DECAL RACE

What we have here is a YOU FLY, I’LL BUY proposition

Who has a good copy of the original “USS BREMERTON (SSN-698) THE WORLD’S FASTEST” BUMPER STICKER?

Editorial Note: Since the publishing of this article on 25 APRIL 2021, we understand that the decal did not say “World’s Fastest” but rather “Submarine Forces’s FASTEST…”

When the USS Bremerton (SSN-698) was a young boat in 1982, she set the high speed record for US Navy submarines, in an in-the-course-of-serving-the-nationin-an-urgent-matter-task. The mission remains a fine work for the Bremerton in her over 40 year history, a true testament to the Navy’s professionals who served aboard her and the taking to the limits advancements of nuclear power and submarine technology. Logged over the course of several days, Bremerton affirmed to the Navy what a 688 Los Angeles Class fast attack sub could achieve – getting to the op area faster than ever.

FASTEST SUBMISSION OF VINTAGE 1982 DECAL courtesy of Russ Woods and Joe PolizottiWe have a shipmate sponsor who is willing to fund the reprinting of the vintage decal for the Decommissioning, here are tasks for one or multiple reliable contributors:

  1. HAS THE DECAL/STICKER IS GOOD/EXCELLENT CONDITION
  2. CAN CONNECT WITH A PRINTER WHO CAN PRODUCE AN AUTHENTIC REPRODUCTION
  3. MAKE SURE IT GETS TO THE DECOM REUNION ON TIME

The production for DECOM will be funded by our shipmate Jeff Marcey, SSN-698 (1982-1986),  who has been searching but has not yet found an owner of one of these rare SSN-698 collectable items.

AND THAT IS NOT ALL…

Who can design a MODERN VERSION of the same decal highlighting the USS Bremerton’s historic feat as the Submarine Force’s Fastest?

New artwork from contributors will be considered for sponsorship, MUST BE SUBMITTED BY APRIL 29 to be considered.

Modern designs should note  “Circa 1982” of this historic achievement.
