And someone better figure out a way to say something.


*crossing my arms*

OK, well this post was aimed at the favorite Naval Consort. If he was online I wanted him to remember that it is an anniversary of sorts. But he is actually doing serious Navy stuff. I posted it fully realizing that his seeing it in real time was a long shot.

But it is my job to be unreasonable and demanding.

However, thanks for playing our game....some really interesting answers.

SJS gets the prize.

...or if you prefer, for the brownshoes amongst us:

1960: 11--In the first recovery of an object after it had been in orbit, a Navy HRS-3 helicopter, operating from the Haiti Victory of the Pacific Missile Range, recovered the instrumented capsule discharged by Discoverer XIII on its 17th pass around the earth. The capsule was located about 330 miles northwest of Honolulu by Air Force planes which directed the ship toward the spot. Recovery was made less than three hours after the capsule hit the water.
