Thoughts on the Day

I saw the USS Enterprise today. It’s kind of sad to see it being disassembled.
If I’m going to do more work with the Navy, I’m going to need to learn a few words in Tagalog.
The Navy is flying the The First Navy Jack on its ships now. I did not know that.
P-3’s are certainly nimble aircraft. I got to watch a couple of them doing touch and go’s and then turning on their wings for a couple of hours.

    My brother served a bit on the Enterprise during Viet Nam. Brought back lots of memories, good & not so good.

  3. DB, ALL Navy ships are (and have been for a LONG time) authorized to fly the Navy Jack. The Kitty Hawk used it as her official symbol!
