  1. I couldn’t believe my ears when you said the Bonhomme Richard burned because the crew wasn’t trained to fight fires aboard ship. This is Seamanship 101. I remember in 1967, a fire broke out onboard the Forrestal after an electrical glitch caused a rocket on an F-4 to fire, striking an external fuel tank of an A-4. Jet fuel spilled across the flight deck, ignited, and triggered a chain reaction of explosions that killed or injured almost 200 sailors. The ship survived! You know why? Damage Control! This was practically beat into you by constant training and drills before, during, and after every cruise. I am floored by the incompetence of today’s Navy leaders.
