The next morning we went down for breakfast and discussed what was on the agenda for today. We were supposed to have gone to the Great Lakes Naval training Center, First was to see the recruits graduate, the fire marshals said we could not due to not enough space for us. Second we were to go and tour the base, go to the commissary, and eat at the mess hall. Yep that is when the US Government shut down so we did not get to do that either. So my wife and daughter went back in to Chicago and I held back and had lunch with all the guys at the motel.
