April 6th and 7th found us in Florida. On April 5th, MCUF hosted a gathering in Hobe Sound at Loblolly Club courtesy of member, Mitch Shivers (Marine Veteran) and his wife, Nancy. Mitch and his wife recently relocated permanently to Hobe Sound, leaving New Jersey behind. Following Hobe Sound, we then traveled to Tampa where we hosted a gathering of almost 70 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Plans for this event were helped by Stephen Elms, formerly of Quantico.
