Welcome! USS George H. W. Bush

This day, CVN-77 was commissioned. Numerous dignitaries and presidents were on hand to make speeches. I, alas, was not present. No, I shall be seeing the ship she replaces safely out of commission, instead. Yes, it was a happy day for the crew of the GHWB. CNN covered it for awhile, but the news crew was easily bored and went on to other subjects. No mention was made of the ship that has served the Navy and the country for 40 plus years. It will be a sad day January 30, but today is a happy day for the GHWB, may she sail true and never fire in anger.

Carriers ARE cool, though. Have airport, will travel.
