Hello Friends

Posted on October 15, 2008 at 8:13pm 0 Comments

Hello to all my wonderful friends, and a great, big, Texas "HOWDY!!!" to all my new friends.

I was going to send this out as a regular message through mail, but apparently the rules have been changed and I have to do it this way now. I guess I'll have to send out individual notes from now on or just keep blogging.

I simply like to see who I am talking to and making friends with.

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center .

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.
