Thank you for the compliment.Oh, no doubt about it.
Thanks. My granddad was USNA class of ‘04. He took his midshipmen cruises on the Chesapeake, a square rigger, and served through WWI and WWII. Dad was USNA class of ‘38. He commanded destroyers in WWII and the flagship of the Cuban missile blockade. He also had an interesting tour of shore duty overseeing the Lawrence Radiation Lab back in the late fifties. I kept things shiny.Then I thank your Dad and Grandfather.
My Great Grandfather was career Army, serving in the trenches of France during World War One and Engineer Corps designing and over seeing building bases in Nebraska, Los Angles, and Camp La Jolla, then Reserves during Korea. I do remember him, stoic though warm and wonderful dry sense of humor.
