This is not how it was when I was in during the ’60’s JW The U.S.S. Constitution (Old Ironsides), as a combat vessel, carried 48,600 gallons of fresh water for her crew of 475 officers and men.

Little Americans



I just became a grandfather! My new grandson was born early in the morning on July 16. Wow, did you hear me? This is all amazing stuff.
