Later that day we all were to meet down in the lobby/ bar area to have a meet and greet time. We were to be dressed for dinner and have a time for picture-taking. While we were visiting we met a young man who just graduated from Great Lakes Navel Training Center, we had a good time visiting with him also, all the men made a point to talk with and congratulate him. It was hilarious trying to get 22 old salty sailors try to pose for pictures. When we took pictures of all the women they just posed and it was done.
Later that evening we all gathered in the formal dining room for dinner. We had prime rib mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon it was fantastic. Well I thought it was but it was way to bloody for my wife and daughter they just could not eat it. We had a DJ who played what ever we wanted to hear or dance to, also a few of us sang karaoke. We had a birthday cake for the United States Navy to celebrate it 238 years, so we all sang Happy birthday to the navy. This was the last night of the reunion so afterwards we said our goodbyes and told everyone that we would see them in two years in Memphis Tennessee.
