John Dupee  is an amateur navy historian, who love to cook, loves to eat and pays a RIDICULOUS amount of attention to the coffee he consumes by roasting it himself in his garage

      Yessir, I DO! I’ve known Captain Jim since I was a BM2 in the Navy back in Charleston 1988. Coulda blown me away when I learned I’d be working with him.

    Like you, I am a Military Pilot but working out of Faslane Naval Base in Scotland, UK. I am an All ships Class 1 Pilot and we seem to move the same types of vessels with the only difference being the flag flown on the fin.

    If you have a spare few minutes I wouldn’t mind sharing a few notes and see if we carry out the same job any differently.

    Best regards.
