Now I have to admit that I've become something of a naval fanatic in my declining years, what with the progeny having served in the United States Navy and my son-in-law still on active duty. Of course, a lot of the work I've been doing since I retired from the Air Force has been for the Navy as well. (As the Navy put all three kids through college, well let's just say, I love the Navy.) But I have long had an interest in fighting ships and the men (and now women) who crew them.
As my political post from yesterday made me feel a bit dirty, I hate talking about politics, I decided to cleanse myself with a post about fighting ships, but just a short one. (That book ain't gonna read itself dontcha know...) A few more pics from the U.S. Navy Museum (battleships of course) to start and one from Battleship Cove in Fall River.

See you Tuesday (Juvat already has something ready to go for Monday as he staggers back from Scotland).
* Oops, I should have looked more closely at the hull, not brawny enough to be a battleship. Thanks Scott.
