Perch Base held its Annual Picnic meeting on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Some members from Tautog Base (Casa Grande), Gudgeon Base (Prescott Valley) and the Tucson Base also joined us.
Our Perch Base Commander, Howard Doyle (left) opened the meeting and our past Perch Base Chaplain, Mike Olsen (center) gave the invocation and the Chief of the Boat, COB, Carl Miner tolled the bell for the lost boats ceremony.

Perch Base member and Western District 1 Commander Jim Denzien led the Holland Club Induction ceremony with the other Holland Club members present at the picnic. Steve Sass (Tautog Base) and Jack Messersmith (Gudgeon Base) were inducted. Steve was given his certificate by Eric Bertness, Tautog Base Vice Commander, and Jack was given his certificate by Tom Warner, Gudgeon Base Commander. The Holland Club are those USSVI members that have been qualified in submarines for 50 or more years.
