the antidote to 2 sunshiny hrs atop
the flight deck
of a [spectacular] amphibious assault ship?

a glorious hour of
kayaking on the perfectly
cool+breezy hudson.

    I am no expert, but I think you meant to label LtCol Hackett’s ride as a AH-1W… (Army flies the AH-64… and doesn’t spend a whole lot of time onboard ship). Was it the LHD7 USS Iwo Jima? If so, I have also walked her decks…

    Nathan looks just like his dad in the photo which isn’t your Christmas photo. Miss y’all. xoxo
