Aboard the USS Peleliu December 2010 - The White Knights have "stolen" the ship's gator costume. The Navy was told that if they wanted it back, they were to have five Ensigns bing the skipper breakfast and sing Christmas carols ot 0630 in the morning. No one showed. So, the Knights are sending out the next set of demands. Although the Navy guys "technically" brought breakfast to the C.O., (see power point file), there were no carols. The squadron is now ramping up to the next level.Click here to view the story as it unfolds - photo courtesy of MSgt Anthony Hocker -
