SMACNA held its 75th Annual Convention in San Diego (not to be confused with SMACNA’s 75h Anniversary, which started the day after the convention) in October. The opening reception on Sunday evening is always exciting, but to see three Navy SEALs parachute onto the deck of the USS Midway Museum in the dark took it to another level.
