Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Retired Navy Captain Seeks Cubin's Seat

Another retired squid seeking a seat in Congress:

A retired U.S. Navy captain says he plans to run against U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin, R-Wyo., in this fall's Republican primary.

Bill Winney, who would be Cubin's first primary opponent, made his intentions known at the Sublette County GOP Convention on Monday, but said he won't formally announce his candidacy for a couple of weeks.
Winney was commanding officer of the USS Benjamin Franklin, a nuclear submarine, from November 1988 to November 1991. He was commanding officer of the USS Holland, a surface ship designed to do submarine repair work, from July 1994 to August 1996. He retired from the Navy in 2002.
