Speaker Talks About 7th Fleet Incidents at Sea

Posted on October 17, 2018Comments are off

Our dinner meetings (1st & 3rd Tuesdays, monthly), feature a speaker of general interest.  On October 16th, a US Navy Captain (retired) told us about incidents in the US 7th Fleet.  The most serious caused tragic loss of life, injury and major ship damage; they were due to degraded basic seamanship – that is, the safe maneuvering of a vessel at sea.

Anyone is invited to attend a dinner meeting.  You will meet the volunteers who are members of the Lions Club, learn about community service programs we do, and enjoy a nice meal.  Interested?  RSVP to

On Oct 16th, we also learned about a new “font” designed to boost memory.

Military Deception in WW II

At the Fairfax Lions Club dinner meeting on October 2, 2018, the discussion topic was military deception in World War II.  Below is a chart that outlines four topics discussed…

Regarding the last deception topic, the “Ghost Army”…even the existence of that US Army unit (the “23rd Headquarters Special Troops”) is still not widely known – because military security restrictions precluded release of any information about it for 50 years after WW II ended.  It is a very interesting story, see this internet location:
