    Naming a ship after our nation makes it the biggest target in the fleet, big mistake I think.

    Just watched the video of the USS America(LPH6) docking in San Francisco for Fleet Week. I noted that 1 of the line handles mid ship flipped off someone on the dock. What are people going to think about the Navy. HMC(SW/AW/FMF) Ret.

    The side sloping smoke stacks reminds me of CV-67 the JFK, which should have been the 1st nuke CV but changed and the exhaust was an after thought. Too nice and proud of a ship to be docked in such a liberal place like California.

    Another great US Navy ship, serving our nation and the World. God Bless our US Navy Sailors and Marines, as they venture into the hot spots of the World so others can live free and prosper. Above and Beyond.
