Marv Remembers . . . After our last exam an unnamed few of us had a few beers (whether too many, is debatable) at the Annex and after returning to the Wheel House, continued with some high spirited hi-jinks. We were observed by some sneaky Tac Officer(s) who proceeded to spill the beans to Major Strouhal. Art Coulter, at the morning meeting, assured him that ‘ all was well ’ in the OCS Wing last night; however, after Major Strouhal presented Art with a laundry list of our alleged crimes, a select group of us confessed our guilt and ended up on restrictions (ramped in, I believe was the term) for the first few days of our last week.
