Bernie's Notes
I want to extent my thanks to the men and women of the USS Wasp who allowed me to spend nearly 24-hours with them.  The US Navy and US Marine Corps were very accommodating to a group of civilians who flew out to the ship yesterday afternoon and return to New York Harbor for the start of Fleet Week celebrations.  I plan to have an upcoming article in the TCN about naval communications.
