FROM WASHINGTON:

News for the Enlisted  Monday August 18, 2014

 

It was a week of very sad news. First the death of Robin Williams (please see below) and the next day the death of Lauren Bacall. With the President on Martha’s Vineyard and Congress in their home districts and states campaigning it was a quiet (if extremely wet) time in Washington DC.
