Photos From the Front

U.S. Navy Petty Officers Joshua Olaiz (left) Kyle Blevins (center) and Joshua Smith watch as the British destroyer HMS Manchester (D 95) sails in the wake of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) in the Persian Gulf on Jan. 24, 2008. DoD photo by Seaman Justin Losack, U.S. Navy.

Man, the Brit destroyer looks like a rowboat in relation to the Truman. If memory serves me, the guys pictured arm the planes, etc., because they have red shirts on.


That's shirts = ordnance guys. (Verified with an ex-Navy buddy of mine.)
Ah, my memory is intact after all. Some of my children find that difficult to believe.
