BU2 (construction builder E-5) Eli Christopher serving with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 17 out of Port Hueneme recently met up with his brother SW2 (steel worker E-5) Zac Christopher serving with Amphibious Construction Battalion 1 out of Coronado Naval Air Base in Al Anbar Province, Iraq.


They joked about the stencil on the door as a “this is what happens when you send a frogman to the desert.” They were very happy to see each other even though it is for a short time.


The Second Class Petty Officers should be home sometime this fall and are very anxious to get back to Lake County as there is no place like home.


BU2 Christopher will come back to his reserve status duties at the Navy Operational Support Center Battalion 18 in Elk Grove and his job that he loves at Del Lago in Lakeport.


SW2 Christopher will still be active duty and after some down time will return to Coronado.


They also send a “shout out” to the Operation Tango Mike crew for the care packages they have received. They are right, there is no place like home!
