Hi Ned,

I am not sure if my email went through or not, so I am sending this along to be sure. In yesterday's JOTW, the item on the LobbyUSA job had a problem with the content. For some reason, it listed the job location as Free Union, Virginia. The location for the job is metropolitan Washington, D.C. Ned, I appreciate your assistance in getting that changed as I know it will impact the job applications my client receives. Thanks so very much for your help and all you continue to do. You have made a difference for so many people and we are all so very appreciative!

Best regards,

*** Ned’s trip report:

“Ships are the nearest things to dreams that hands have ever made, for somewhere deep in their oaken hearts the soul of a song is laid.”

– Robert N. Rose

My trip to San Diego and Boston was one of my best business trips ever, pretty much hassle free and very productive with some incredible high points and wonderful-yet-subtle moments. Not the least of which was being near, and even better on the sea, in two oceans!

As I was turning my rental car in at Boston and boarding the National bus to take me to the terminal, the driver comes back to see me.

“You are Captain?” said Bogden. He points to my USS New Orleans (LPD 18) ballcap with scrambled eggs. “Captain?”

“Yes,” I said, smiling.

“I am sergeant,” the older gentleman replies, pointing to his tattoo on his left hand. “Russian Army.”

I look at him, then salute. He salutes me back.

My flight to San Diego via Phoenix on America West dba USAirways was good. In Phoenix I call Heather Murphy to discuss the remarkable coincidence that her father, the great-grandson of George Sirian, will be attending the presentation of the Surface Navy Association’s George Sirian Award aboard the USS Constitution in Boston on Friday, a story I’ve been assigned to cover.

II arrive in San Diego and visit with Roger Copeland and Jim Fallin at SPAWAR headquarters to discuss some great story ideas. I meet with my former roommate Bill Bonwit that evening. He knows a great restaurant in Old Towne, Casa Guadalajara. I arrive a few minutes early. A gentleman ambles up to me in the parking lot and says, “We’re from Canada. Alberta. I left my wife at the train station because we have no money for gas. I can’t drive,” he says, taking out his twisted arm, holding it up for inspection. “Can you give me eight dollars?”

“That won’t get you very far on your way back to Alberta.”

Bill pulls up. The man waits for him to get out of his car.

“We’re from Canada. Alberta. I left my wife at the train station because we have no money for gas.

“Maybe you should be back there with her?”

“The train station is a long way from here,” I add.

On Wednesday I embark aboard the USCGC Haddock, an 87-foot patrol boat, from the Coast Guard Station at San Diego. Lt. Reyna Hernandez is the commanding officer. A group of media are being escorted out to sea to observe part of Seahawk 2007, a major exercise involving navy and Coast Guard units. I chat with one of San Diego’s reporters, Nicole Ward, who happens to be a native of Newton, Mass., my home town. She doesn’t know that open sandals with high heels are not good for shipboard wear. Haddock catches up to USNS Henry J. Kaiser, and we stand 200 feet off her port side as Coast Guard helos and Navy fast boats put teams aboard for a simulated “non-compliant” VBSS (Visit, Board, Search and Seize) operation. The cool looking Sea Slice comes out to take a look at the proceedings, and we watch USS New Orleans come into port.

I meet up with my IABC San Diego friends, including Lilli Cloud who came down from Los Angeles because she read about the event in JOTW.

Bill Erickson and I go out for dinner Wednesday night. “I know a great restaurant,” he says. Turns out to be the Casa Guadalajara. As we are waiting to be seated, a man comes up to us. “I’m from Canada. Alberta.”

“Don’t tell me your wife is still back at the train station,” I shout at him. “Shame on you. You should go back and be with her now! Go!”

Being a panhandler is a tough job sometimes, especially when your story is blown.

Thursday is a full day of presentations for the Surface Navy Association’s West Coast Symposium. Instead of the dark and dingy base theater, we hold the conference in a large tent pier side, surrounded by USS Bunker Hill, USS Mobile Bay, USS New Orleans and USNS Mercy. As such, there are no PowerPoint presentations, and always a breeze. We can watch cranes being repositioned, or rescue swimmers practicing rescues, or ships coming in and out of the busy base. Lunch is a New Orleans feast aboard USS New Orleans.

I take the red eye on Jet Blue to Boston, arriving before 6 a.m. on Friday. We proceed to Charleston and the USS Constitution where SNA presented the Old Tar Award to the senior serving Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist, a Master Chief machinist mate named Mark Davidson, who, as it turned out, served with me on USS Cochrane when we made our glorious cruise of the South Pacific. We join with dozen of Chief Petty Officer selectees who have been training aboard Old Ironsides all week. Today will be their final exam: get the ship underway and set sails.

This is a dream come true for me, who grew up visiting the Navy Yard as a boy and seeing Constitution every time, but never until this day had I been on her while underway. “A passage under sail brings out in the course of days whatever there may of the sea love and sea sense in an individual whose soul is not indissolubly wedded to the pedestrian shore,” wrote Joseph Conrad.

That same morning, the Liberty ship John W. Brown got underway, a sight in and of herself. The Pride of Baltimore rendered a gun salute as she sailed past.

SNA also presents the Geroge Sirian Award for leadership to a Chief petty Officer from USS Preble, Chief Gunner’s Mate Casey Carlson, who is accompanied by his mother. Present is Tom and Pam Forbes. Tom is a retired Navy captain, and as it turns out, a friend of my brother. Tom and Pam’s daughter Heather is a long-time JOTW subscriber. Tom is a great grandson of George Sirian, who is one of the most incredible Sailors in the history of the U.S. Navy. To begin with, Sirian was orphaned in Greece when his family was killed by the Ottoman Turks. He was adopted at age eight by the crew of Constitution where he served as ship’s boy. He eventually came back to Constitution’s home port of Boston, went to school, and when old enough enlisted in the Navy and eventually rising to the rank of Master Gunner. He served for 50 years!

At a luncheon reception after the sailing I meet my old friend, Admiral Ray Couture, who was the chairman of my Recruiting District Assistance Council when I was enlisted programs officer for Navy Recruiting District Boston many years earlier. We reminisced about the company of recruits he administered the oath to on the ice in Portland at a Maine Mariners Hockey game. I recall a number of those Recruits, all from Maine, as saying that Portland was the farthest south they had ever been.

I ship the Old tar award to Master Chief Davidson on Saturday. It weighs a ton. I have no problem getting it packed and shipped from the Mail Boxes, Etc., store in Newton Centre. I’m early at Logan They don’t charge me to move my departure up to the earlier flight from Boston to Washington.

*** In honor of USS Constitution, which got underway from Charlestown, Mass., and was under sail this past Friday in Boston Harbor:


By Oliver Wendell Holmes

September 16, 1830

Ay, tear her tattered ensign down!

Long has it waved on high,

And many an eye has danced to see

That banner in the sky;

Beneath it rung the battle shout,

And burst the cannon's roar;

The meteor of the ocean air

Shall sweep the clouds no more.

Her deck, once red with heroes' blood,

Where knelt the vanquished foe,

When winds were hurrying o'er the flood,

And waves were white below,

No more shall feel the victor's tread,

Or know the conquered knee;

The harpies of the shore shall pluck

The eagle of the sea!

Oh, better that her shattered bulk

Should sink beneath the wave;

Her thunders shook the mighty deep,

And there should be her grave;

Nail to the mast her holy flag,

Set every threadbare sail,

And give her to the god of storms,

The lightning and the gale!
