  1. …wow, just watched this on iTunes – can’t remember much about being that young!, re: OSSA’s Mason and Espinoza. Great vid and love to hear everyone speak and share on the video; especially the shout-outs to their families – nice! 🙂

  2. @Jonnie – Like you I have such a new and improved impression of our sailors and the Navy. So glad you are enjoying these too.

  3. Thank you for doing this series! It was fantastic and awe inspiring to watch

  4. FOLLOW UP: The movie The Final Countdown (1980) features the USS Nimitz. The Director’s cut (commentary) has wonderful info about the ship, Naval protocol and the movie; totally worth a listen on a lazy day…
