The Corner

From The Uss Ronald Reagan

An e-mail live from the USS Reagan:

The Captain announced President Reagan’s death about three minutes after I

saw the headline on Drudge, then the Corner. It was the shortest time the

Captain has ever spent on the 1MC (the intraship speaker system). He just

said what a great President he was and a great man. I sincerely hope there

will be a memorial service out here in the next couple of days.

I began my military life under Reagan as a cadet at the Air Force Academy.

Then I served most of my active duty time under Bill Clinton. How happy I

am to be on the inaugural voyage of the USS Ronald Reagan.

He adds, BTW, “Kathryn, the intranet on the Reagan is nicknamed the ‘Gippernet.’”
