FRIDAY FOTO (March 4, 2022)

Wavy Navy.

(U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Lawrence Davis)

Don’t rub your eyes. It won’t make the photo seem less blurry.

After watching, hearing and reading the news from Ukraine all week, we figured nobody wants to see another plane, tank, ship, rifle or helmet — at least not for a little while.

Sooooo, this photo both baffled and amused us when we saw it in a smaller size on the Defense Department website. We thought might give you a chuckle.

Here’s what it really shows. Navy Reserve Yeoman 1st Class Andre Polk,is testing the fit of an M-50 gas mask at Navy Reserve Region Readiness and Mobilization Command in Fort Worth, Texas, also known as REDCOM FW.

Assigned to Navy Reserve Center New York City, Polk was preparing for his scheduled mobilization to Qatar.

Selected Reserve mobilization processing for Polk and other Sailors took place during an adaptive mobilization-enabling event at the Fort Worth command between February 14 and 18. The event was assessed by folks from the Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center, who certified REDCOM FW as a Navy mobilization processing site with delegated Local Area Coordinator for Mobilization authority.

We have absolutely no idea what that last sentence means. Now that’s funny.
