I got a team out there already:
I have been retired from the Navy for 10 years this month so maybe my understanding of traditions and regulations are out of date. I accept that. Could one of you who remain in the service of our Navy confirm or deny some of my recent observances, that in my opinion were not in keeping with the highest standards of the Navy. For example: the VEEP saluting members of the military as he/she boards an airplane; the VEEP carrying the "football"; the SecNav saluting sideboys as he departs a tour of a Navy facility. As I recall, only POTUS was in the chain of command and as CINC was appropriate to salute our troops and sailors.

in 1914, Royal Navy midshipman Wenman Wykeham-Musgrave survived being torpedoed on three different ships within one hour. He was aboard HMS Aboukir when the armoured cruiser was torpedoed by U-9. He then swam to HMS Hogue which was immediately sunk by the German sub. When he swam to HMS Cressy, that ship also fell victim to U-9. He then clung to a piece of driftwood until being rescued by a Dutch trawler.
