I want to give a special thank you to all the US Navy and Coast Guard sailors (and all military for that matter) for protecting my right and ability to sail the Seven Seas on a small boat.
In a wider scope thank you to all that serve our great country. Regardless if you are in the military or not each and everyone one of us can serve the people of our great country. Just think of all those firefighters, police officers, teachers, social workers, etc that help protect the interior of our borders or our citizens.
If you have not in the past find a way to give back to America. Because as John F Kennedy said, “ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”
By the way, this is the USS Dwight D Eisenhower coming into Norfolk for a refit when I was sailing out of the Chesapeake back in 2010. There is a whole story regarding this encounter, but I won’t go into details her. 🙂
