    Thank you Echo and the feelings are shared, now all I need to do is print this and show it to my daughter next time she asks for more money for her credit card bill, when I tell her she needs to watch the spending. LOL Seriously though, It's an honor to be around so many that are involved in making this nation so great!! You among them.

    At the Northrop Grumman Corp. shipyard near New Orleans, the keel of the Somerset — named for the Pennsylvania county where Flight 93 went down, killing all 40 passengers and crew members — was authenticated by the ship’s sponsor, Mary Joe Myers, the wife of retired Air Force Gen. Richard Myers, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    “Out of tragedy, we can now turn our focus to a tribute to those brave men and women of Flight 93,” Myers said. The ship will “take the power and courage of the United States to the four corners of the world.”

    some will argue that the us is merely antagazing the enemy with this type of thing...will it make the uss new york the target of attacks....??

    i say, rebuilt the world trade centers just as they were (better structural things perhaps, upgrades there) but rebuilt the on the same spot they stood...restore the towers...restore new york....restore the skyline ...

    thanks for sharing navy....

    Your welcome, and interesting you should mention that, my statement to that is that it is a US Navy Ship and therefor in todays world is a a target for those wishing to do this nation harm to begin with if it's name were USS (fill in the blank). The Navy is honoring ALL thoe Americans on that sad day, and I submit that each time this ship pulls into a port it serves to remind people so they don't forget. It's funny you should mention the WTC, I was having the same conversation with a good friend the other day, and I mentioned the same thing, and told them it was a good thing that I had not been in that loop when it came to making the decision to rebuild the WTC, because not only would have it been rebuilt, I would have built it taller. Then again, no one ever accused me of being an artist I suppose and I guess thats the order of the day when it comes to building those sorts of things.

    I wonder if those who step aboard the New Yorker get chills down their spines? I know I would. God Bless this ship and this America.
