Strafing Santa Monica South...

Dateline: Thursday, June 25, 2015 mid day...

Atten Hut!... "The Doctor and The Captain"

 *** Video Alert ! ***

... as we were walking past Tower #22 a rip current was developing that ensnared two swimmers and when we looked back the guard at Tower #22 had to go in the water and perform a rescue, followed by his back up guard from Tower #24... and, of course, since I had my camera with me (fortunately...) I was able to capture the whole thing on video!...

Double Rescue at SMS Tower #22: The Video   


And then we were in for a real surprise at SMS Tower #26 when we captured this "Double Legacy OL" Photo!!!  The progeny, the echo, the deja vu next generation version of (L2R) Fletcher and Newman!

... and check out the 'coffee cup' logo on the official cap from the Training Center!

L2R:  Fletcher, Newman & Thomas, LLP...

And what about the "In-Tower" footwear choice of one veteran OL who was working T-27!... I wonder if he brought his blankie too?!... :-)


Until next time.....
