Naval Tradition Old and New.

 


The amphibious assault ship USS America, the first in her class, was, this Spring, on patrol in the Pacific with a full deck of Marine airpower, including F-35Bs, and a hull full of Marines and their gear. One thing that caught our eye in recent photos of the ship at sea is the massive flag she is flying above her island superstructure—one that depicts the symbol on Captain America's iconic shield. 


The crew takes special pride in manning the ship that carries its country's name. With a little help from Captain America's iconography, that pride and exceptionalism are taken to a whole new level.

So good I had to re-post this from American Digest, which, by the way, deserves a daily visit.

And how are those people walking by in the background not stopped cold by this?  Were it me, there's no way I could not stop and just listen.

Swimming Hole of Dreams - or it would be if they'd just remove that log
