    Congratulations to the newly inducted members of the Fleet HOF. That said, it is an absolute crime that Bob Berke is not in their company. The first executive director of NAFA, Bob was a pioneer in advocating for the very people that have preceded him into the Hall. Few have done more for the fleet management profession; as Bob and other of his fellow pioneers fade from memory, it seems that they have been forgotten. A shame.
