Plan Of The Day: 13 April 2015: The wind has risen, not to a prolonged gale but blowing in erratic gusts which is howling through the superstructure like a pack of banshee Indians. A percolating mix of wind and sea and rain are brewing together, welded into a wicked mass of energy. An isolated thunderstorm set off its birth, upsetting the surrounding high-pressure front by causing warm air to converge with cold. Funneling warm air off the oceanís surface, the churning winds gradually have blown into a tempest. Moving unabated across the sea, the storm has grown in intensity, exuding a devastating force of wind. Surface winds are raging higher and higher.

FTG3 Frank Wood (aka "Woody") has injured knee and must have immediate surgery. Corpsman will attempt to replace knee even though seas are running heavy. Looking to Almighty God for grace. Have realized it was always there through faith. Blessings to all...

Everyday heroes. We honor God when we honor one another...

"When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red, and in the morning, 'Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."
Jesus Christ
Matthew 16:2-3

          Last All-Gun Destroyer In US History     
he belonged to the Forrest Sherman Class - the last Destroyer Class in US Naval History to sport 100% gun armament. The USS Hull was the last 'all-gun' destroyer in the Pacific to be decommissioned, earlier in 1982.

month later, the Mullinnix was the last 'all-gun' Destroyer anywhere to be decommissioned. The end of an era was complete with that decommissioning. The United States Navy will never again see a fighting ship with ALL guns.

Destroyers and the Destroyed

All veterans deserve a parade - a chance for the nation to say thank you.
We didn't do that for Vietnam Veterans.
