    Saw this ship docked and thought you degenerates would get a kick out of it.

    Toured the Japanese Battleship Mikasa today. Japan used it to kick Russian ass in the early 1900's.

    Old school range finder. Evidently some Ensign used it to dial in the Russian fleet and save the day.

    This week is a full week of Area Orientation and Cultural Briefs. Field trip to Kamakura today to practice train and restaurant skills. The carrier Ronald Reagan might be coming back to port soon which should make it pretty crowded on base with the influx of another 5000 or so out of control sailors and Marines.
