    was partly filmed aboard the USS Nimitz. The plot: A modern aircraft carrier is thrown back in time to 1941 near Hawaii, just hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. I have a dvd of the movie somewhere around here. Where is that safe place that I put it?

    As to your diary...."Take care of your people! Your people come first!" is a great lesson for anyone in charge. If only our Congresspeople took this to heart.

    I had a great model in a 1st Louie in Vietnam who brokered deals to keep me out of the stockade more than once. I couldn't figure out if he was brave or just crazy when he would put himself in danger to protect his men. The tales I could tell of the dangers we faced and survived.

    Amazing the Time I waste Here! Sometimes it's not wasted though!
