Here is a Crusader

When we got this Crusader in 1998 it was unpainted or in need of a paint job and the interior,
where the engine would go, was filled with cement.
This Crusader was obtained from San Francisco, and was in a park. 


Marines worked out early in the day


And Docents get to hang out laundry.

Sailors who work on the flight deck, wear a certain colored jersey depending upon their work function.
