Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

As family and friends gather in San Diego today for Lex's memorial ceremony, I will be conducting one of my own here in Kuwait. SPC Dennis Weichel, a former member of our unit, was killed in Afghanistan last Thursday when he saved an Afghani child from being hit by an MRAP and was himself struck instead.

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13

Rest in Peace, Dennis. We have the watch now.
