NOW HEAR THIS!!!
March 29, 2020
We all have been hit by a very difficult issue from the Covid-19/novel coronavirus. As we are being advised by health officials and politicians to “self-quarantine,” this gives each of us time to reflect. Make no mistake — this is war against a silent, deadly enemy, one that cannot be destroyed by tanks, ships, and planes, but by good science. Appreciate the goodness in the world — a county pulling together to defeat a common enemy.
The country we have enjoyed for these last 244 years will not be the same once this passes. There are serious concerns as to what direction the country will take, more government control, less freedom, who knows.
I take this opportunity to wish each of you good health and hoping you are practicing good hygiene, plus following the CDC and NIH guidelines for your own safety and the safety of others.
Each of you are very important to me and I wish the best for all your family and friends.
WE WILL CONQUER THIS PANDEMIC IN TIME
All the best to each of you and your loved ones,
Admiral Chester F. Barnes II
Commander, Charles E. Hawkins Squadron, Galveston
