USS Constitution Underway in Boston

The USS Constitution is underway today in Boston to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.

Has it been that long?

I see the Aussies have been remembering the Battle of FSB Coral recently.

I was lucky enough to fire the cannon for evening colours on Old Ironsides last September. No relevance, just a rare chance to gloat!
