    My niece is finally headed out to sea. She went aboard the Roosevelt in the middle of a four year overhaul so the first two years of her service she's been in the yard. This morning they cut loose and headed out for their shakedown cruise. She said last night when they were buttoning up the engine room she was so proud she had to hold back the tears. They'll run up and down the east coast, head back to Norfolk, reload then head back out and pick up the air wing and then to parts unknown. But I'm sure we all have a good idea. I made sure to tell her pics or it didn't happen. So hopefully pics will be coming. She is very excited and proud to carry on a family tradition of going to sea that goes back as far as we can trace.

    Nice to see "The Big Stick" back in service.
