I Have Been Remiss....... not commenting on John's great adventure. He is blogging the return of the DD574 USS John Rogers. The Armorer is in his element! It may be a Navy ship, but it's big guns and history and a great opportunity to be part of something unique. I am following this story closely. It appeals to me for many reasons, not the least of which is that I have just read about some of Commodore Rogers exploits in Robert Allison's book on Decatur. Rogers is one of three men in his family the ship is named for.

You can read everything over at the Castle. This link is just posts on bringing the Rogers back to the States. Scroll down and start at the bottom.

Happy Birthday, John!
