And it is a mighty thing to see. I'm just glad that child had the full protection and help of the most powerful Navy to sail the earth .
OMG, I screwed up and called a frigate a battleship. No wonder so many people move on to other forums. Sorry for being a dumbass. Next time I'll know better.

Or you could say, "My bad... sorry."

You're in a Navy town. Expect to be corrected when you talk Navy.

I complained when the Pensacola News Journal repeated a wire story about the Naval Academy and used "Cadets" in the title instead of "Mids" or "Midshipmen"

We squids know the difference and will point out the mistakes. Marine stories too.

No, Jim... obviously, I'm a hopeless dumbass. I don't know an aircraft from an aircraft carrier. And this frigate, (Im SURE) is incapable of battle and it's probably not even a ship... it's more likely a BOAT... FRIGBOAT.

It's a good thing they had a motoryacht to send out to rescue them...

To an aviator, they're all boats.

But you gotta read your audience.

I think the point is, sailors will risk life and limb to rescue another sailor. It's always been that way. It should always be that way.

Heck,in the days of wooden boats, enemies would blow the crap out of each other, once one struck colors (surrendered), the other would go out of their way to rescue anybody in the water.

And sailors are always too proud (for all the right reasons) of their ship.

Some of the comments on the articles about this story are hilarious, but also a bit depressing...

"zOMG what if the boat sank, what if aliens abducted everyone, why would you take your family on a vacation, why this, why that, why, why, why? Child Endangerment!!!!!#[email protected]#[email protected]#!! Blah Blah Blah"
