You started from humble and meager beginnings and have grown to the most powerful force the world has ever seen.From the days when you weren’t much more than a few frigates and more privateers than commissioned ships, through the age of sail and into the age of ironclads, the Great White Fleet, all the way to today when one light cruiser packs more destructive firepower than an entire fleet of dreadnaughts, you’ve plied the seven seas keeping the lanes of commerce open and projecting our nation’s force on foreign shores so that they couldn’t project theirs on ours.
Us jarheads and you squids have had our friendly “differences” over the years, but we are proud as hell to be your teammates.
Anchors Aweigh my boys!
P.S. Thanks for the rides.
