Note the “grooming standard”. I had been out of the navy about a month when this was taken. I hung around NFLD for a couple months, doing odd dive jobs, hanging out, exploring

At the Morgan Star pier, posing before the plunge! Tom Corbin, Robert Schmid and “Kaz” Eddie Kazzel

This was base security, driving down to the T-building in the midst of one of those famous “white-out blizzard/ ice storms”. The driver stopped when it started getting bumpy!!!

Drinking from the Trophy Cup! Robert Schmid, one of the Whittle boys, and Frank Lannon. If you won, and we did in 79, you got to “drink from the cup”!!!
