    My name is Mike. I'm a US Navy veteran and am looking for some folks with whom I can share common interests and discussions. Major interests are the histories of nuclear weapons (nukes are horrifying and fascinating at the same time) and space programs. :bye1:

    Welcome!

    We may not have much in common, but this is a nice board!

    That's OK. There's much to discuss these days.

    I believe anyone otherwise qualified can serve aboard ship.

    I would have a difficult time around folks like that, but, again, if the person is otherwise qualified, OK. The ship's command structure should expect problems.
    It's going to take some time to figure out exactly what happened. I just hope the Navy does a thorough job and doesn't settle on a scapegoat like Captain McVey (USS Indianapolis) or Petty Officer Hartwig (USS Iowa).

    Unfortunately, the weather where I was going for totality is lousy, so I'll stay home and watch the 93% eclipse - IF our weather cooperates which isn't sounding too good, either. Oh well, that's the way it goes. Still plenty of time to plan for the April 8 2024 total eclipse.

    ----------------------------------------------thanks for your reply Mike , -------------------------my thinking about the Fitzgerald is that those responsible for the collision were 'mrobama' types like 'rear admiral john kirby' but thats simply speculation on my part Mike .

    But to be fair, if you stub your toe you also think there must have been some 'mrobama' types behind it.

    Anyways welcome to the board mhansen2
