September 19th Photos Page

I know it's been a while since I've posted any new photos here, but that doesn't mean I haven't been onboard working!  Today was the my fifth time onboard since my last posting in July, continuing to polish brass all over the ship,  Lately my work schedule has been really hectic preventing me from making my regular every other Saturday trips.  In fact, three of the last five trips have been on Sundays, and one was on a Tuesday, go figure!  Actually, I like going on different days because I get to catch up with other volunteers I don't get the chance to see very often.  It seems like each day has it's own group of regular volunteers, and together we keep things running smoothly.  Anyway, below I've posted a selection of photos from those recent days onboard, most are taken in and around Main Fire Control, located at the top of the Conning Tower on O5.  The Brass Team has pretty much finished up working in this area and soon we'll be moving on to other projects.  My next day onboard should be September 25th, hope to see you there!
