I do have the "Stars and Stripes" camo, but I didn't want to throw it on her. I also have the Arizona, but alas, I couldn't bring myself to use her. Why?
 

Cause the New Mex has been so good to me these past few years I would feel horrible not giving her the respect she deserves. So here she is, perma-camo bought when they first released it and all.

I'm not American, far from being an American, but I'll be playing the Helena because it's a good ship. :)) From 5-8 July there will be missions requiring Helena, so I guess she'll finally start getting some more love. Now on WoWS Numbers it says 1,039 battles have been played in her. Come on! Bring those numbers down! Lol. I know I deserve more than a 1100-ish PR when averaging 58k damage. :))

   Since tomorrow is Independence Day, don't you think.... that in a way, you should play the French anthem as well? :)) Just saying.

He really said that? Lol. Must be a joke.

Yes, it was.  He was doing a level test for the setup before one of his speeches.  Naturally the news media preserved it and used it against him as proof that he was a warmonger.

The Gipper had an extraordinary sense of humor, as does our current CiC, though the latter is not as refined about it.  But a joke is a joke, whether or not some lack any sense of humor.

An interesting fact I learned a week ago is that the Department of Defense was actually called the Department of War until 1947. 

Cheap branding tactic.  The United States hasn't been invaded since 1916.  So much of national "defence" spending is spent on the offence.

Thanks for the reminder not to play on that day! The baddies will be out in full swing wearing their circus outfit camos.

Poor little troll.

The Department of Defense is combination of War and Navy departments, consolidated in 1947. Before this, Navy had own department, War Dept. was Army.

You're right. The US should have just let the Kaiser, Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini have their way.

Not real big on flashy camos, but I will definitely have the Helena in action today.

We fought those guys with the aptly named The United States Department of War.  We didn't try to hide what America stood for back then.  Changing the name to "Department of Defence" would not have defeated Hitler any faster, if anything it would have hurt the war effort.

As noted above, the name was not changed. DoD was an entirely new entity created in 1947 from combining the War (Army), Navy, and the newly independent Air Force departments.

Might want to get your facts straight before you go trolling.

The DoD was formed in 1947 while Furui Funanori somehow thinks this involves the Kaiser.  Pick your battles better.
