The can of polish was almost new, it had a penny in it. Don't know why but everyone did that. Lady said her husband was a "Gummers" and EOD (extra odranary Dumb) so I gave him a break and sent the polish, along with instructiu\ons on how to use it. He will most likley get p[olish on his whites anyway. Real gunners would use gun grease or spray paint the shoes to get off the ship, and EOD guys could just go swimming for exercise so it must have been just an excuse. The guy probably wanted to play spaces, acey-ducy, or cribbage and didn't want to go on liberty. Now if he had been an airdale he would have pulled early liberty - for them that means getting off aT 0830.
