Sniper. Check

I believe I’ve seen photos of our post 9/11 veterans checking for snipers using the same method..

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,  right?

Semper Fi…

In the treaty were provisions for the hundred thousand veterans left maimed and irrevocably mute throughout the city. As is the way of things, their sacred places and comforts have dwindled to a lonely strip of shoreline and a polite nod whenever they are passed in the street.”

The USS Constitution, which was first launched in 1797, will be tugged from its berth in Boston Harbor on Sunday into the harbor. It will then set out to open seas for a 10-minute cruise. The short trip marks the day two centuries ago when the Constitution bested the British frigate HMS Guerriere in a fierce battle during the War of 1812. It follows a three-year restoration project and is the first time the Constitution has been to sea on its own since its 200th birthday in 1997.
