    (insert joke about Frank being one of the first Naval officers here)

    That's great, I had no idea the Navy was so old.  Makes sense, we Europeans and other non-natives couldn't fly here back then.

    It’s too bad they can’t play with the really big toys any more.

    Well-there are still 14 of them around with the big boy toys ready to go.  And we are building replacements.  Once the genie is out of the bottle...

    Cap would refer to this as a 'target'; we referred to it as home. Launched from Westwego, LA, in '72, and sunk for target practice by the Turks in 2001. As far as I know, the only shots fired were in practice, which is the history of most naval ships. Nondescript little sub chaser - "Fast Frigate" FF1091 USS Miller, named after a cook on the USS Arizona. His mother(!) actually christened it.
