Bravo Zulu USS Bulkeley!

Congratulations to the men and women of the DDG84. Last month, (my boy, lol) Admiral Gary Roughead awarded the officers and crew of the USS Bulkeley the Arizona Memorial Trophy. This award recognizes the Bulkeley as "the Naval Surface Force's most combat ready ship during the two-year compettitive period of 2005-2006."
'The Bulkeley is being recognized for maintaining high combat readiness in anti-surface warfare, surface fire support and strike warfare during training and deployment. The Navy is also recognizing the Bulkeley for its actions while deployed to the Persian Gulf area of operations."
They do their namesake proud! In the words of VADM Bulkeley, "You engage, you fight, you win. That is the reputation of our Navy, then and in the future."
