Happy Birthday US Navy!

Happy Birthday to the US Navy!  236 years young and going strong!

Manning the rails under the Golden Gate Bridge aboard the USS CARL VINSON.

Blue Angel doing its thing during Fleet Week in San Francisco.

 21 gun salute during a burial at sea.

 Flight operations while underway.

My oldest brother Alan enjoying a sunset at sea.

You can tell this one is old because there are Vikings and Tomcats in the picture.

In San Francisco, it's a romantic fog.  In San Diego, it's the May gray.

United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

VS-30 Diamondcutters doing our thing in Fallon, Nevada.  The troops are what it's all about.

A stacked flight deck.


Change of command ceremony onboard the USNS WATSON at Pier 8 in Busan, Korea.

I used to hunt these things for a living.

The USS SUMTER, LST 1181.  I did my midshipman cruise aboard this beast.  We were off the coast of Liberia for what seemed like an eternity in case American citizens needed to be evacuated.

They have no fly days on these things.  Mind boggling.

Dad as a young seaman.  Odds are I wouldn't be in the Navy if Dad didn't join the Navy.  Heck, I may not have ever stepped foot in the United States if Dad didn't do what he did.  Many thanks Dad!

Thanks for following along with me on this birthday card to the best Navy in the world.  Happy Birthday!
