CO (1960-62) HOLMBERG on ETERNAL PATROL

Received a note from TOM CURTIS informing me of the passing of CDR HOLMBERG (8/25/2011).


Sailor, Rest Your Oar

My first C.O. Tuff but fair, Shipmate Rest Your Oar.

Re: CO (1960-62) HOLMBERG on ETERNAL PATROL

My first CO too. He had a famous quote. We were waiting to get underway one morning and he shouted out "Dam the milk and donuts all back 2/3rds." We didn't have any milk and donuts that day.
I was cleaning the head prior to an inspection, working my fingers to the bone. Captain Holmberg came through and said it looked like s**t house. I was somewhat upset by his statement but then figured maybe it was a compliment because wasn't that what it was supposed to look like.
Sailor rest your oar!
