Dear Veterans…

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Hands down we’ve got the most bad ass military in the world.  I mean, it’s really not even a contest. Our Coast Guard alone could probably taken down most of Europe if they felt like it.  Proud to say I was part of that military at one point; now I’m just a crusty old Vet telling her salty sea stories to anyone who will listen.  Have I told you the one about when I was the Officer of the Deck and accidentally thought Mogadishu was in China? Ah, yes, that was the day the whole crew of USS HIGGINS started calling me “Lieutenant Dumb Ass”… (true story)

PS. No shit, it’s like in AFRICA or something. Crazy, right? It just sounds Chinese… I swear I’ve had Mogadishu with pork before.
