National Defense Outing (August 2018)
Twenty-four members and 4 HODARS from our chapter and Wild Horse Trail Chapter in Sandpoint converged at Farragut State Park to visit the historical Brig Museum from the World War II Farragut Naval Training Station (FNTS). FNTS was a 4,000 acre land-locked naval training facility built in response to the December 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor. Nearly 300,000 recruits received their basic training at FTNS. Some of our ladies rode in one of two RVs making the trip. Hostesses Jane and Cheryl provided a lovely picnic lunch.
