    USS Thomas Hudner, DDG-116 is now in commission!

    Today, December 1, 2018 almost 68 years to the day of the act of heroism that earned Capt Thomas Hudner his Medal of Honor, his namesake has joined the fleet.
    This may be a bit long to watch. But, it is well worth it!

    Had a chance to see USS Hudner back in the spring. Quite a story about his efforts in Korea.

    And the gas turbines work too. And the last of the DDG1000s is in the dock behind.
