      but will do so again as you are taking the time to address the concerns of posters here.

      When are country is in as much need for reasoned leadership as it is now politics ceases to be only a local concern.

    •  Clancy rocks, no question. (5+ / 0-)

      I loved HFRO.  Nothing like sticking a bunch of people in a sub, notching up the tension and seeing people come unglued.  Good stuff!
      I spent 30 days on a sub when I was a midshipman.  I figured out that I wasn't cut out for it.  The silent service is hard core!

      My father in law was a submariner, I have nothing but the greatest respect for them.  Amazing record of safety and professionalism.

      Finally, TOPGUN rocks.  A little cheesy, but escapism is good!

      I saw the national preview (was invited to attend) back in June of 86 in DC.  A great story.  Yes, Tom Cruise is short.

      More on that another time! - DD

        My husband is an Academy Grad. Retired as a captain and now in the corporate world making real money.

        At the time of HFRO he had command of the SubTraFac (I believe that's the correct acronym) at San Diego.
        He worked the HFRO film..though he still enjoys "Top Gun".

        I was lucky enough to be flown out to the Nimitz to watch operations..came away in awe of the young people and what they accomplished. In awe.

        Donation is sent and good luck with the race.

        •  Fantastic, thx again. (0+ / 0-)

          Your husband probably knows my Father in Law.  He was the CO of SUBTRAFAC in Norfolk in 1989-90 when it just opened and was the CO of the Will Rodgers and Ben Franklin.  Spent most of his career in New London CT.  I don't want to get too personal on the web, but shoot me an email if you want at and I'll tell you his name.
          Take care and thanks for the contribution,
