    • WHO IS BILL DARNEY?
    • (and, what the heck happened to him in Newport!)
    • BILL DARNEY’S TALE IS A SORDID ONE….
    • WHEN HE FIRST CAME TO NEWPORT, HE WAS PROFESSIONALLY CONFUSED
    • QUESTIONING HIS CAREER, HE DECIDED TO TRY OTHER THINGS…
      • At first his exploits were rather harmless …
    • GALLEY BOY
    • HOOK & LADDER MAN
    • CHECK OUT CLERK
    • BUT, THINGS BEGAN TO TURN DARK…
      • The XO (as he was often known) knew he had more to offer the Navy … but he felt confined in his shell as a Commander ….
      • So, He began imagining himself in higher places.
    • HE SNUCK INTO PLACES HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN…
    • HE IMAGINED HIMSELF AT THE HELM AT OTCN… … he figured the commute would “rock” since he slept in the building
    • HE EVEN ATTEMPTED TO ENTER THE “INNER” SANCTUM OF THE PRESTIGIOUS NAVAL WAR COLLEGE
    • Although it was uncertain what he intended to do if they let him in….
    • HE OFTEN HARBORED ILLUSIONS OF A LIFE IN POLITICS .. (BECAUSE, HE IS too short to play basketball)
    • KNOWING DOORS WOULD REMAIN CLOSED TO HIM UNLESS HE TOOK MATTERS INTO HIS OWN HANDS ...
    • HE TURNED TO PRAYER…
    • THAT DIDN’T WORK, SO HE BEGAN AN EXERCISE REGIME
    • FAILING AT FITNESS, HE TURNED TO ALCOHOL
    • DESPERATE, HE SOUGHT COMFORT FROM A BEAUTIFUL BLONDE
    • THAT LANDED HIS @&& IN THE BRIG… Poor Bill Darney…. In his drunken stupor he did not realize it was the CO’s wife
      • But the fabled Ribbon Cutter CO is a forgiving man
    • HE KNEW BILL HAD IT IN HIM TO FIND REDEMPTION ….
      • (Capt. Dunn did, however, remember the “kiss” and decided that the confused XO should not get off too lightly. He arranged for some professional development.
    •  
    • The XO has been reformed. He is all set now.
    • HE IS NO LONGER IMPERSONATING SENIOR OFFICERS And, he generally is getting on very well with all of his colleagues around the base ….
    • AND MADE NEW FRIENDS Even Sophia recognized the changes!
    • NOW HE’S OFF THE BOTTLE, OUT OF QUARTERS “EYE” AND BACK TO WORK
      • He’s even focused on his job. Here is he is in front of the building he takes credit for building ...
    • WE’LL MISS YOU XO!
      • Be safe. Thank you for the kindness you’ve shown us all, the laughter, your friendship and all of your help.
    • YOU’RE THE ICING ON THE CAKE!
