These officers support clinical laboratory operations world-wide as blood donor center officers, laboratory administration specialist, and operational clinical leaders. Most are permanently stationed ashore, with varying overseas postings, short-term afloat opportunities in support of hummanitarian operations, and an occassional in-theater deployment.

Six Things You Don't Owe Your Boss

This is a valuable article for those of you who work for extremely demanding organizations (the Navy for instance). Set boundaries and protect your health, you family time, your sanity, your identity, your contacts with others and your integrity.

The typical workday is long enough as it is, and technology is making it even longer. When you do finally get home from a full day at the office, your mobile phone rings off the hook, and emails drop into your inbox from people who expect immediate responses.

From another FB post on Saturday afternoon:
It is with a very sad heart that I inform my FB friends and Shipmates of the passing of Becky Valentine Sakis Sparks, CDR, MSC, USN, Ret, this morning. Many of you knew and served with Becky before she retired in 2007, and I would ask that you share the news of her passing with your friends and Shipmates so we can pay our final respects for our Shipmate and dear friend. I had the pleasure of serving with Becky at the War College (2002-03), where we instantly bonded after meeting each other the first day of school. We also met Lesley Priest that first day and we became the "Three Musketeers," for many reasons, including being Lesley's birthing coaches in June 2003! We became bonded for life when Bill and I joined Becky and her wonderful husband, Rick Sparks, when Lesley asked us to serve as the Godparents of her son, Mikey. Becky retired in San Diego, but their hearts took them back to Wake Forest a few years ago, where they would be physically closer to many of their family members, and where she continued her passion of "spending time serving the Lord, mentoring young Christian women, and facilitating Bible studies in (their) home." This past August, Becky found some suspicious lumps around her neck/shoulder area which sadly turned out to be cancer. She underwent countless tests where the doctors found Stage III Melanoma in another part of her body. She endured hours of surgery and treatments over the following weeks and months to try to eradicate, if not stop the spread of the cancer, but sadly (for us), this would not be God's Plan. Becky went Home today, 17 Jan 2015, but I know we will all be together again! We will always love you, Becky (and Rick)!! Rest in Peace, Dear Friend!
