Thanks for the support Preach! It means a great deal. Just today I was driving through Lincoln, NE and there must have been a rally downtown on "O" Street. Lots of people with signs protesting the war. Of course, I rolled down my window and yelled "GO NAVY"!!
And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
"I served in the United States Navy"
