This is for you CS2

CS2 works at a volunteer event for her charity, The Samaritan Women.

I'm just a new guy in the Navy, but I can say one thing with certainty.  Military life is all about change, flexibility, and adaptability. No Sailor stays on a post for more than a few years.  The idea is to move us around to make us more well-rounded. The building I live in right now is experiencing a roughly 75% staff turnover in the last 6 months. 

CS2 Nina Preston retired last week.


Don't tell CS2 that a Culinary Specialist just thaws frozen food for Sailors.  Her skills are no joke.  When she cooked for the students at the barracks, fireworks were spontaneously released and hardened Sailors cried tears of joy.

 MC1 Kristi Farr reads CS2's farewell letter for her after tears got in the way.

She was our barracks manager and MTI, or military training instructor.  As a barracks manager, she kept us supplied and running smoothly. As an MTI (an extra roll she took on herself) she provided an example of how to be a good Sailor.

Proper military bearing was a big one...

Ensign Larson, a former MTI here, says a few words while CS2 tries to maintain her composure.

CS2, you are appreciated and missed.  From myself and the DINFOS Navy detachment:

Fair Winds and Following Seas!
