Leg 2 of 3 took us to Lewisburg, WV. After you've spent the night in a West Virginia Motel 8, you know the rest of the trip can only get better and better.
I got a voicemail message from JJ Connor who will have to miss the reunion this year. I'll miss his presence, his stories and his incredible memory.
JJ is special to me. He was my first master chief at my first band in my first year as an MU. He still calls me Mullen.
Today will bring us to Virginia Beach. In on sense, the homeport of Navy music.
In another sense, the scene of the crime.
