7. Any additional thoughts / memories i.e. commissioning Concord etc.:
all the underway replenishments was an amazing job by the team that was providing necessary supplies to the warfighter in
order to keep them on station especially during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. These UNREPS were completed sometimes 4 at
a time and several different times with at least 65 different commands during a single deployment and even a Submarine.
