In only a few short hours USS New York (LPD 21) pulls into Manhattan's Pier 88. Wow, has time flown by these past several months. The City is buzzing in anticipation of its arrival, and today a few lucky distinguished visitors were flown out to the ship via Marine Corps helicopters to spend a memorable overnight on board with the crew.
Rumor has it a very, very distinguished visitor may be headed to the ship tonight specifically to watch the next Yankees world series game with New York's Sailors and Marines. How I would love to be on board to witness all the excitement.
See you tomorrow, New York!
