During Fleet Week, I took a brief tour on the USS Kidd through the Golden Gate and back. They wanted to do something special for the President, so they made this hat for him.
And, folks, I got a non-POTUS version of the hat so you can see what they look like up close:
On board, I learned:
- it’s a “ship” not a “boat”
- UPDATE: chatting with a senior Marine, he tells me they call it a boat to irritate sailors
- the ship floats in what they call “water”
Again, thanks to all the vets out there, for all that you do… (and you can also follow the USS Kidd on Facebook, maybe support ’em.)
