Our former Executive Office Lieutenant Commander Jeremiah Minner, who was just recently relieved for a new assignment, participated in a contest to see who would be selected to sing the national Anthem at the Southeastern Connecticut Submarine Force Birthday Ball on April 13th at the Foxwood Resort Casino. He wrote in an email that he was not the one selected, but that he had great back up from four Chief petty Officers on board USS NORTH DAKOTA.
Second from the right is Chief Jay Roberts who visited us in Dickinson, Medora and Bismarck just before the 4th of July. Here is a link to the story:
Good job XO! We are proud of you!
Our ship sponsor, Katie Fowler and her husband Vice Admiral jeff Fowler (Ret), report they will be attending the Birthday Ball. They also hope to get a tour of NORTH DAKOTA, so we are looking forward to their report.
