Two weeks ago today, I had the distinct pleasure and honor of riding on the ship named for this great President.
I was on active duty during the Carter presidency. Morale was at rock bottom, the nation divided and weak. Then Ronald Wilson Reagan was elected.
Morale skyrocketed in the military, the nation was strong and proud once more.
I cannot even begin to express how much I loved this man. And miss him.
H/T to Joel.
