[The themes for Weekly Challenge #97 at the 100 Word Stories Podcast are Muffuletta and Navel Lint.]

Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, but Hurricane Louis sounded its death knell in 2023. The city drowned, never to recover.

Both the Navy and the Marines sent in frogmen to salvage what cultural artifacts they could. There was a huge demand for experienced Muffuletta Divers.

It was a heartbreaking job, one that was physically demanding. The divers needed concentrated rations that packed a caloric punch. Chocolate filled the bill.

While the Marines favored Godiva at first, it was a Swiss chocolatier that won the hearts of the Annapolis boys. Oh, how the Big Easy salvors loved their Naval Lindt.
