  • This is wonderful. I served on the USS Forrestal CVA-59 from 1970 to 1972. Deployed to the Med. Sometimes I would look at the destroyers in heavy seas. Disappearing from view and then reappearing. Once we were in a storm off Cape Hatteras. Waves breaking off our bow. I cannot imagine what was going on with the destroyer crews. I am sharing this with my Facebook friends. Perhaps some young person will find destroyer life a life they would like to experience. It would be nice if the film had credits. Who filmed it?

  • Look how diverse this crew is. Many african and hispanic americans onboard one of the country's most powerful weapons. It truly is good to see these folks being so successful in what they love and enjoy when you have all the lunatics back home telling them all they can do is fail and how oppressed they are. Fair winds and following seas!

  • I served aboard USS GALLANT (MSO-489), an ocean-going minesweeper. We crossed the Pacific from Long Beach, Calif. to Cam Rahn Bay, S. Vietnam. Left March 17, 1971, arrived June 14, 1971. That's a long time on a 150-foot wooden ship. We had a crew of 54, I believe. Life was a lot more cramped than aboard this destroyer, but very little in a sailor's life has changed since then. Sailors still say "God, be good to me. The sea is so great, and my ship is so small."

  • Fewer carriers, more ships along the lines of this one....and fast, stealthy ones packed with offensive hypersonic and rugged, capable defensive weapons. That is what the U.S. Navy needs most now (along with subs, subs, subs). But this ship does seem to aim in that direction.

Super cool boats. One additional quick shout out - thanks very much to the Navy for it's SAR operations out of NASWI up here. They save peoples butts everyday and we appreciate it.

  • 40yrs ago this July 13th 2021 is when I enlisted in the Navy and not too long after that, I checked on board the USS KING DDG 41. It’s interesting to watch how much things have changed as well as the things that haven’t changed. I had the privilege of being the ships rescue swimmer and struck out of deck to become a QM. I remember having my short timers calendar and how I couldn’t wait to ask permission to leave the ship for the last time. Funny thing is I’d love to ask for permission to come aboard that old tin can for a visit, though that’ll never be, it’s been scrapped for some time now. Thx for posting!
