Happy Memorial Day

The Guided Missile Destroyer at Fleet Week.
Happy seems wrong.  I mean, it is about honoring those who fought for the country and our freedom, so maybe Honorable Memorial Day is better?
.
But clunky.
.
Anywho, we went to the ships at Fleet Week yesterday.  We went on the Wasp - a landing vehicle, Helicopter Carrier that lands Marines.  It was fun.
.
We also saw the guided missile destroyer pictured below, but it was a LOOOONG line, so we went on the Tall Ship instead.
.
It was cool.
.
And the marine pilot of the Ospry was little.  I think you have to be a smallish guy to fit into the cockpit.
.
Anywho, thank you to Nick - who served in Vietnam, and to all the other men and women who have fought for the country.
