Nursing Home Aquarium

We have been informed by Justin Hodge of Fish & Frags that the construction of the salt water aquarium is 100% complete and he is in the process of scheduling the installation. His schedule is very full and he also has to coordinate with the assistance of his cabinet people. The dates he has available are the weekends of Feb 28-Mar 1 or Mar 7-Mar 8. Justin assures us that it will be one of those weekends.  Below are recent photos of the aquarium.  We will notify ALL HANDS of the exact date for the  "ribbon cutting ceremony" once the aquarium is installed and populated with livestock.

23 Feb 2015 "The President's Own" US Marine Band Concert

Marines:  Commandant Grisier provided this e-mail sent to him:

Good afternoon Marines,
Just wanted to pass information regarding an upcoming event by "The President's Own" United States Marine Band. We are performing a concert titled "Time Capsule 1945: The 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II" on Monday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m. EST. Coincidentally, that day is also the 70th anniversary of the Iwo Jima flag-raisers, so we want to pass the word to as many Marines as possible. The concert will be streaming live at Marine Band Marines so you can watch it from home on your computer (it's a sold out performance; taking place at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Md.).

Here's a description of the program and I've attached a flyer if you need it. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call.

Here's the flyer

The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the final campaign in the Pacific Theater and the end of the great Second World War. Although seven decades have passed since that turbulent time, we continue to celebrate the monumental accomplishments of the incredible men and women of our "Greatest Generation" and marvel at the enduring spirit of our country during one of its most difficult eras. It was also exactly 70 years from this concert date-on Feb. 23, 1945-that Joe Rosenthal snapped his immortal photograph of five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the flag on Mount Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima. Come join the Marine Band and guest narrator Jim Lehrer, journalist, author, and former anchor of the PBS NewsHour, at The Music Center at Strathmore for a Time Capsule concert that celebrates the legacy of the hard fought victory of World War II and honors those who so valiantly carried the nation on their shoulders during this iconic year in American history.
