It's not often that a conference is held aboard a Battleship, however, District 13 was fortunate to be invited to hold their 2014 Spring Conference aboard the United States Battleship, USS Iowa (BB61), which is permanently berthed in San Pedro, California.  Our conference began on Friday, March 28, with a tour aboard the enormous and sturdy ship led by USS Iowa volunteers.  The tour allowed us to view some of the historical war artifacts and where special meetings were held between U.S. President Roosevelt, U.K. Prime Minister Churchill and Russia's president Stalin during WW11. This segued into a catered dinner in the officers ward room, where we also enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday.  Seminars were in various areas of the ship, sometimes having to navigate to them which was a bit hazardous, the stairs were rather steep and the hand holds were chain and not too steady.  We were happy to have V/C Robert Miller, SN as C/C Robert Baldridge, SN representative.  If you look closely to one of the pictures you can see the District Commanders flag flying from the yard arm.  This will be remembered as a very unique conference.
