Good for you!
Your comment motivated me to look up the ship namesake's story. He was surely deserving of having a ship named after him, having died for his comrades and in the service of the United States of America. His bravery reminded me of that of Allan Kellogg, who I worked with at the Department of Veterans Affairs (which prioritizes hiring Medal of Honor awardees). Allan actually threw himself on a grenade that exploded in RVN and lived! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allan_J._Kellogg
As for a model, what a boring subject as far as I see.
I'm glad we have you to set us straight as to what we should like or not.
The ships don't do a lot for me but you have to admit they're unique looking. I had the good fortune to attend a conference run by a number of Michael Monsoor's team mates in March and the evidence of love they demonstrated for this fallen brother more than fifteen years after his death made me feel its was a worthy subject to build in tribute.
