Re: Levity isn't against the law.

I remember one event at Pt. Sur which I'm sure probably also took place at other NAVFAC's. As some of you know, Pt. Sur was not that "busy" in the early 1970's. So for something to do one eve watch the plotter dug out the messages from Com on locations of known surface ships in the Pacific. He dutifully plotted all the locations and tracks on the plot in the display room. From what I remember, this started on a Friday eve watch, was continued by other watch sections over the weekend, and by the time the day workers came in on Monday morning, Pt. Sur really looked "busy". Nothing ever happened except for someone being directed by one of the day workers to clean the "mess" off of the plot!:smiley:
