With all the stuff happening in my life, both good and bad, I must take a moment to stop and reflect on the anniversary of a terrible event. April 19th is the 22nd anniversary of the USS IOWA explosion that killed 47 of my shipmates in 1989. I hope in my heart that the families of the men we lost that day have found peace, and the men that were forced to cover the incident up have found peace as well, knowing that following orders is sometimes all you can do.
The IOWA 47. You have not been forgotten. (4/19/1989-4/19/2011)
