Letter to the Secretary
I sent a personal letter to Secretary of the Navy, Hon. Ray Mabus (as a LTjg in the photo) today asking him to reconsider his decision to name LPD-26 USS JOHN MURTHA. I am finding it hard to imagine a Sailor being able to take pride in this ship.
I look forward to his response.
Update 09/08/10 - No response from the SECNAV. Unusual. I will have to do an ADTAKE.
