On-Board the USS New York- (the public tour) pictures and a short video
We took the public tour of our new assault ship, the USS New York, the day before Veteran's Day (November 10, 2009).
It also just happened to be the birthday of our US Marines (November 10, 1775). It was a great two-hours well-spent. Every one on-board: crew (enlisted and officers) old and young...veterans, women, children .... each and everyone was so happy!
And there was a very meaningful display in memory of those murdered on 9/11.
And some video of a few moments in the public tour of our new assault ship.
Extra exterior pictures of the USS New York (she looked so fabulous) and a few pics of the bikes that a bunch of firefighters (it seems by the logo on jackets) rode to the pier. These were taken on Sunday, November 8, before we came back to take the tour on Tuesday:
