Hard to believe it is May already! April just flew by. As you can see, I never quite got around to updating the blog, so here are some quick hits for stuff I did last month.
First up, I volunteered at a local Sea Perch event, which encourages kids from grade school through high school to build remotely operated underwater vehicles. I was part of a group of volunteers from the ship to attend:
The day was set up like a game, where the various robot designs had to compete at completing an obstacle course. It was a lot of fun to see the different designs and approaches the teams took at solving their challenge:
If you are interested in more details of how the game went, be sure to check out the full After Action Report that I posted on Man Battlestations. The very next day after that game, it was Gwen’s birthday! I wanted to make this birthday a little extra-special, since it will be the last birthday, BC (Before Children). So, I went a little crazy:
That weekend, we went to the Submarine Ball, which is always a good time. We got to dress up, and spend some time with our friends, all while honoring the history, tradition, and sacrifice of the US Submarine Service.

Until next time….
