This week's episode is a special one, we will be live from the Navy Memorial in Washington DC as it gets ready for the annual Blessing of the Fleets. The 2010 Blessing of the Fleets will debut the Navy Memorial's latest exhibit, Supporting the Force: Navy Supply in Action—Ready for Sea, Ready Ashore, and will kick off the Year of Navy Supply. Following on popular exhibits in recent years that have honored the Seabees, Navy Medicine and Navy Special Warfare, 2010 has been set aside to honor the Navy’s logistics, culinary and business specialists. A full schedule of events will accompany the exhibit, including food tastings, films, lectures and equipment displays. To help get the ball rolling, we have three scheduled guests; - Rear Admiral Edward K. Walker, Jr., Supply Corps USN (Ret.); President and Chief Executive Officer, United States Navy Memorial Foundation. - Rear Admiral Michael J. Lyden, USN; Commander, Naval Supply Systems Command and the 45th Chief of Supply Corps. - Documentarian Brian J. Kelly who will be screening their new work, Discovery Channel's film about Navy operations today "At Sea." Make sure and join us for the show, or better yet - if you are in DC this weekend, come by and see the exhibit.
