Was disheartened today to return from fishing and find out a friend and former co-worker passed away. Not sure if anyone here knew him, but Bart was a recently retired ITCM (Navy E-9), Afghanistan, Iraq, deployed all over CENTCOM AOR, was with me in Qatar at the start of the Iraq War, Combat Action Ribbon, numerous decorations. Avid fisherman, loved to talk about running offshore. Our last conversation ended with him inviting me to his new place in Florida where he had snook and redfish under his dock. Seems unfair after all he did in the military, that he pass away from cancer only a bit over a year after retiring from the Navy. Tight Lines Bart.... will always be remembered.
