Some may have noticed a diminished number of posts in the last two weeks.
I was pretty hard down with an infection. This getting older stuff is not all beer and skittles.
I'm now on the rebound and full of new ideas of issues that need addressing in the maritime security and sea/internal waters transportation world. Look for a return of "Sunday Ship History" in 2011. The research for those short posts on odd topics related to the Navy is great fun.
In the meantime, an old Monty Python clip.
Just as an aside, "Bring Out Your Dead" was how we used to call the VTU to muster at the old Houston Navy reserve center (now, NOSC, relocated to Ellington Field) . . . you might have to have been a senior reservist assigned to a VTU to appreciate that . . .
