    VETERANS Thank You So Much

    They're never gone, as long as we remember them. Something I do on Memorial Day is go to my local military cemetery, find a marker without any flowers, put flowers there take a couple of minutes to stop remember him and give thanks.

    VETERANS Thank You So Much

    One of the things I got from my time in the AF, was how to work with, and get along with people I had absolutely nothing in common with and may not have particularly liked. Because the work had to get done. I had a Flight Chief in Korea, one of the things he would say is "Life is full of disappointments...this is one of them...Deal With It."
  3. I am reminded of Murphy's 4th law "No matter how much you try to please everyone, someone's not going to like it." But Wait...There's More!

    Premium Ship Review: Duca degli Abruzzi

    Better range on the guns than Boise/Julio. Like the Duca d'Aosta, think of it as a cruiser that thinks its a destroyer.

    New Bote: USS Wichita

    Please may I have another!
  7. As an aside let me just say AIR FORCE! We're the smart ones....send the officers out to fight! am I in as much trouble as I think I am?
  8. Happy 243rd Birthday to the U.S. Navy! The U.S. Navy turns 243 years-old tomorrow. On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress commissioned two ships, each with eighty sailors, “for intercepting such transports as may be laden with warlike stores and other supplies for our enemies.” The foe at the time was Great Britain, whose navy ruled the seas. By the end of the Revolutionary War, the Continental Navy had grown to about fifty ships. In 1789, the U.S. Constitution guaranteed the navy’s future by granting Congress the power “To provide and maintain a navy.” George Washington once said that “as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive—and with it, everything honorable and glorious.” Those words are even more appropriate in the twenty-first century when U.S. interests span the globe. To serve and protect those interests the U.S. Navy today has 286 deployable ships, more than 3,700 operational aircraft, 328,267 active duty personnel, 98,748 reserve personnel, and more than 210,000 civilian employees.

    Hence "But even these have people who like and use them well."

    Very Well Said! I believe there is no such thing as a Bad Ship (with certain exceptions Krasny Krym, Ishizuchi come to mind) But even these have people who like and use them well.
  11. You might want to look at The De Grasse. Its a pretty fun Light Cruiser.

    Average Joe First Impressions on British DD's

    Giving you this right off the bat...I'm Not That Good That said (one man's opinion, freely given and worth Almost that much) looking at all the new RNDD's I am less than impressed. Slow not very stealthy, the guns are...OK, Torps...Do Not get me started(!). You end up with some 3 point Captains, which is better than a poke in eye with a sharp stick. Anyone who wants to pay hard cash for them....Please come talk to me....we can play some 3 card monte.
