Happy navy birthday

This brings me back to a certificate that needs dusting. It honors those who were serving during our nation's 200th anniversary.

And yes, the cooks roasted and served at lot of lobster in the 1970s ...

GULF OF OMAN (Oct. 13, 2008) Culinary Specialist Seaman Recruit Charlene Cruz de-shells a batch of lobster tails in the aft mess decks aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) in preparations for a crew appreciation dinner, celebrating the Navy's 233rd birthday. To commemorate the occasion, 117 Sailors reenlisted in the Navy during a mass ceremony earning a combined selective reenlistment bonus of $2.4 million.

Ronald Reagan is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility, reassuring regional partners of the United States' commitment to security, which promotes stability and global prosperity.
