Fun Night at JEB Little Creek

I am currently visiting Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek - Fort Story in Virginia Beach, VA. This is a big base and home to several Navy Special Warfare commands. Tonight XO altered me to something going on outside. I stuck my head out of the hatch only to find 3 guys in a blacked out rib, one of them climbing up the dock next to Reboot.  A few minutes later I heard noise again and again looked outside. The rib was picking up the third guy. As I looked out into the basin there were several patrol boats. It turns out that NSF was having a night exercise and the water was filled with swimmers. One came about 5 feet from the stern of Reboot. Even though I knew he was there (the swimmers all had safety flashers so that the boats would not run them over) he was almost impossible to see.

Interesting.

Fair winds and following seas :)
