USS Wisconsin

    Newer Older

    View Large On Black This had been a stormy day. In late afternoon the clouds began to break in the distance allowing the first traces of sunset through.

    We toured the Norfolk, VA U.S. Naval Base and then visited the USS Wisconsin. It's hard to describe the feeling you get being on this ship. I'll simply say that it was awe-inspiring.

    Sidenote: Just putting in a plug for the charity I run. If you are buying ANYTHING from Amazon.com this year, if you visit my organization's website - www.booksforamerica.org - and click on the Amazon button, and then buy something, Amazon.com will donate at least 6% of the purchase price to our literacy programs!

    This link is active year-round, so anytime you buy anything on Amazon, please go through the link on booksforamerica.org!

    Cheers, and many thanks.
