This was recorded two and a half years ago, a time prior to our remote switchboard upgrade and to be frank, we had a run of bad audio luck.  As such, have patience with my audio being a bit weak and echoish  - the guests are fine, and this early show deserved another listen if you have patience.

Back in APR 2010, we did a live show from the Navy Memorial in Washington DC as it got ready for the annual Blessing of the Fleets.

The 2010 Blessing of the Fleets debuted the Navy Memorial's 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 previous years that have honored the Seabees, Navy Medicine and Navy Special Warfare, 2010 was set aside to honor the Navy’s logistics, culinary and business specialists.

We had 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.
