Ralph, thanks, glad you appreciated the humoUr! N/ t
T'was a joke, David. Before he turned traitor, Arnold was a hero at Saratoga, and thought to be a "fervent patriot." Then he went over to the British side. So, he "has appeal" to both sides...Anglo-American "harmony" expressed in a humorous way.
USS Bendict Arnold!
I've heard that the Navy got authorization for
CVN-81,Since Presidents and other politicans
can have carriers named after them. Now previous ships have been named for Presidents . Sticking on that . Perhaps CVN-81 might be named for Andrew Jackson,or Ulyesses Grant, maybe Tecumesh,or Sam Houston, and maybe Kamehameha.What ya think of my choices?
