It was my Honor to serve on the finest warship in the US Navy, and it was also my Honor to have been one of the chosen few to put her to rest after an historic 26 year history.
It is also my Honor to have the opportunity to bring her website into the 21st century.
I would like to thank all of my Shipmates for trusting me with this epic task, I hope I didn't disappoint (wink)
