From the Nurses: Happy J4 Weekend to Friends with Big Blue Fleet



The President stopped talking and so now we can say “Hi” to our friends. From the Middle East nurses to our friends with the 5th. Not sure where you are today but hoping it is sunny. We are hanging out with some Army taking care of business close to the Mediterranean.

Thought we would publish some of your eye candy. What would you do with another nurse picture? lol Have a great weekend. Stay safe and enjoy awesome weather.
