Thank you Pleroo!

Here's a snippet about the camp:
Spoiler

The United States Coast Guard Training Center Cape May, New Jersey is the nation's only Coast Guard Recruit Training Center. In 1924, the U.S. Coast Guard occupied the base and established air facilities for planes used in support of United States Customs Service efforts. During the Prohibition era, several cutters were assigned to Cape May to foil rumrunners operating off the New Jersey coast. After Prohibition, the Coast Guard all but abandoned Cape May leaving a small air/sea rescue contingent. For a short period of time (1929–1934), part of the base was used as a civilian airport. With the advent of World War II, a larger airstrip was constructed and the United States Navy returned to train aircraft carrier pilots. The over the water approach simulated carrier landings at sea. The Coast Guard also increased its Cape May forces for coastal patrol, anti-submarine warfare, air/sea rescue and buoy service. In 1946, the Navy relinquished the base to the Coast Guard.
In 1948, all entry level training on the East Coast was moved to the U.S. Coast Guard Recruit Receiving Station in Cape May. The Coast Guard consolidated all recruit training functions in Cape May in 1982. Currently over 350 military and civilian personnel and their dependents are attached to Training Center Cape May.


~Wishing a wonderful day for you and your family. (((hugs))) for the little one.

Just June who just realized that the holiday of comfort and joy is only two weeks away, and June is hardly done with her shopping! Is June the ONLY one who hasn't even managed to get those cards out yet? --Seriously folks, June is just hopeless! Hopefully will pull it together in time for Santa to come down her chimney (more like her wood burning stove) but June is sure you'll get her drift! HELP!

Decorating begins within our hearts, sharing and spreading joy wherever we go and whatever we are doing. Get out and enjoy the bustle and ambience of the season . . . it will inspire you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, "Just June."

It's not nice to threaten Santa! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Miss Blue.

Yeah, sometimes when Santa shows up, he has an iron fist. I never did care for Santa myself. Looks too much like the devil. Be that as it may, I wish you a Merry Christmas Miss Blue. It has been nice knowing you.

And to you, Ans57. Such a pretty tree you found with musical notes. A very colorful greeting, thank you.

I'm going to see Mr. Rheumatologist today, bah-humbug
But on the bright side of that, he is going to put me on a new medicine that might help relieve my incessant pain from fibromyalgia.
