XO,

I would give my right arm to spend osme time onboard with you all. I think it would be amazing to see -- in person -- what goes on while underway.

Thankfully, I have that opportunity through this blog. Thank you again for all the work you all put in to keeping us informed!

Thanks,

Jim C

Great site. I visit this one often. I was a Sailor when the ships had 1200 PSI propulsion systems. Great to see the gas turbine Navy in action.

USS John Paul Jones (DDG 32) 1977
USS Sellers (DDG 11) 1969-1971

Nice pics, XO
Of all the Milblogs I've been reading, this is one of my favorite. One, it's Navy (duh), two, it goes into the daily life of the destroyermen, instead of commenting on the news topics of the day, and so it offers a real inside look into life aboard and abroad. Keep up the good work!
