Sunday Afternoon United States Navy Stuff

The son of my oldest friend (he is sooo old) serves on the USS Momson (DDG-92). It is not an Evarts-class destroyer. Arleigh-Burke. They did this video thing.

Anyway, I'm posting it for everyone who has someone they love who serves. God bless em. More are now in harm's way, keep them in your thoughts. They serve the nation and we are damned fortunate for them. Am reminded of the quote from "The Bridges at Toko-Ri".

"Where do we get such men? They leave this ship and they do their job. Then they must find this speck lost somewhere on the sea. When the find it they have to land on its pitching deck. Where do we get such men? "

incidentally, and by that I mean it isn't incidental at all, Ronney's dad was a Naval aviator in WWII.

I miss that cigar-smokin gentleman. May he rest.


the "easy" button was a nice touch.
