Pirates

So I my time in the United States Navy on my second six-month deployment, we were sent of the coast of Somalia to do circles in the water to prevent things like this. At the time I was thinking, WTF are we doing here, until we actually got called to escort a cruise liner into a port called Seychelles because pirates fired a RPG at them. Needless to say my ship USS Gonzalez DDG-67 wasnt part of the report, just the fact that they were attacked. the report is here for the attack. Oh and by the way, Seychelles is the place to go after you kill a whole bunch of people and dont want to ever be found, just a fyi for those aspiring serial killers out there :)

heres a pic of my firt ship, the USS Stout (DDG-55) God I loved and hated her lol
