    And I'm wrong.  The grog ration was stopped 50 years earlier, but the US Navy didn't go totally dry until 1914.I knew CPO's who claimed to be around when the Navy went dry.  They were stretching the truth.
    I got out of the Navy more than 50 years ago.
    Best, doug

    The US Navy was always dry.  The mention of reinstituting grog was a giveaway that it was an April fools joke.

    Regarding your question, April fool?, I would think that likely, very likely,  but then who knows.
