Lee's Restaurant

I join the navy on June 10, 1983. I went to bootcamp in Orlando, Florida. On October 20, 1983 I reported onboard the USS Nimitz in drydock an the Newport News Shipyard in Newport News Virginia,
Soon I was a regular customer at Lee's Restaurant right outside 33rd Avenue shipyard gate.
Wun and Lee were the owners. Lee once let me run a tab up to fourty-eight dollars Of course he kept reminding me he doesn't let it get that high for everyone.
During their busy times I would help behind the counter. I have never been back to Lee's Restaurant since the Nimitz left the shipyard.
I will never forget the fun times I had at Lee's Restaurant.
