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.

Update on McCampbell Collision

Update on a previous post considering USS McCampbell's recent collision. Scuttlebutt is that she was struck by the merchant's bow on her starboard side, below (underway replenishment) station 3 and her green running light.

Still no official press release on the situation, though. When McFaul and Churchill collided last summer, there were lots of details released pretty quickly, so this mishap still has a peculiar smell to this Sailor's nose.
