Traditions . . .

. . . of the sea.

The U. S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the George H. W. Bush (CVN-77) was commissioned today at Norfolk Naval Station. It was done in the same tradition as all Navy ships since the Navy was formed. Quite an impressive ceremony, don't you think?

Since I work at the Naval Station, I wanted to be there, but the ceremony was by invitation only.
