Protecting our Freedom

I had the pleasure accompanying my grandson and his boyscout troup for a two night stay on the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier. I can say this it was a unique experience to sleep in the quarters that the enlisted men slept in, while it was possible to get some sleep it was way different from the comforts of home. This World War II carrier had a treat at every corner on every deck. There was lots of history on that ship combined with movies and documentaries. The ship is located on Patriot’s Point just outside of Charleston S.C. There was a destroyer and a submarine too.
