|I was on her (USS Ranger) until they decommissioned her.
I was fortunate enough to make the last cruise aboard her,
and it was a dandy one, too. We were pier side in every
single port, including Perth (rare) and Sydney (rarer).
It was the best cruise out of 5 that I have made.
Unfortunately, I only caught the tail end of Desert Storm,
but she really kicked butt there. I forget how many
millions of pounds of ordnance and how many hits they
said they had, but if I remember, she was at the top of
the list for carriers.
Where has the time gone?
