Happy Birthday Admiral Nimitz

Adm. Chester Nimitz, World War II commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific, was born in 1885.

Favorite quote.

"A ship is always referred to as "she" because it costs so much to keep one in paint and powder."

Shouldn't you be busy coming up with a plan to win your way back into my good graces after you miss my birthday?
