Janis and I have the upmost respect for the men and women in the armed forces in Ecuador and thank them for their service.
So, Janis and I made a quick stop on May 24th at the Naval Academy in Salinas to drop off a donation to honor and commemorate the Battle of Pichincha which was May 24th, 1822.
This donation was made to paint the 2 Naval Academy racing sailboats so that they can continue to provided community service for the residence of Salinas. The donation will provide maintenance on the sailboats so that the academy students can train the community on water safety, sailing, rescue, life guarding and swimming lessons.
We will write a full article once the boats are finished and presented in a ceremony on July 3rd. Ohh, look out for our “Travel On Dudes” logo on the boats.
