This really doesn't seem so long ago.
I'm taking a moment this Memorial Day to remember the folks that have left us. I'm aware that we've lost a couple people from the OI Divisions of USS Callaghan (DDG-994) and USS Leahy (CG-16) over the years.
I can't imagine a better place or time to grow up then the 1980s destroyer navy or better shipmates to serve with. You guys mean a lot to me.
