#245 Today’s Boondoggle with retired Chief Petty Officer Jo Lynn Pike


In this episode Bill talks with Retired Navy Chief Petty Officer, and Future Mayor of Harrodsburg Kentucky, Jo Lynn Pike. We talk about why her Mother sent a Navy Recruiter to knock on her door and how a week later her life would change forever. We also talk about learning to eat fast, the bootcamp pudge squad, protecting the puppies, serving in the Philippines during the exile of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, as well as the base strike. We also talk about our time together deployed at Camp Arifjan, working for the police department, the importance of joining your local VFW, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy, her other volunteer service, the call to run for Mayor in her hometown, and why Rob Zombie should play her victory party, plus so much more.
