CNN.com – USS Ronald Reagan commissioned – Jul. 12, 2003
When I signed up for the Navy, Reagan was President, we were building a 600 ship Navy, and the Evil Empire was the Threat. When I went on Active Duty, Clinton was President, the Evil Empire was no more. I’ll spare you the whining about serving in a military ‘led’ by Clinton.
The USS Ronald Reagan will sail the seas for 50 years. I can’t think of a better tribute to a great president.
Update: a better tribute would be to spell his name right, which I just fixed. Thanks, Aunt Sue!
