I really like the 'Eye Candy' posts. It's a great reminder of the work it takes to keep a warship and her people ready.

Thanks, and kudos to all the RUSSELL sailors!

This is a great site for parents of sailors on board the Russell. I check it out everyday. Keep up the good work it give a Dad a little in-sight on what goes on a ship while at sea. Thanks for the photo of my son.
