A fine bunch of people. I recall when Anoreth and several of her shipmates phoned me from the pier in Seattle, and they were all yelling, “Mrs. Tax-chick, we hate the government!”

Yes, it’s been four years. She went to Gunner’s Mate school, and she’s a trainer at Cape May, for now. She’s planning to reenlist soon.
