Yes! Attending Reunion

Worked as a civil servant for the Navy from 1978 to 1996 in Norco, CA at a Navy facility called "Fleet Analysis Center". We were sort of an independent quality control agent for the Naval combat systems. I wrote criteria for assessing performance of battle groups in fleet exercises and reported performance results to the Chief of Naval Operations in the Pentagon. I saw my analysis have some major impact on the navy.
