"I have spread the mantle of my nation over the ocean, and will guard her forever. I am her heritage, and yours. I am the American Sailor."


"History has taught us that the economic tide of all nations rises -- not when the seas are controlled by one -- but rather when they are made safe and free for all."

(Regional Sea Power Symposium, April 2006)



Naval Tidbits

PRESS INTO SERVICE The British navy filled their ships' crew quotas by kidnapping men off the streets and forcing them into service. This was called Impressment, and was done by Press Gangs.

CHOCK-A-BLOCK – Meaning something is filled to capacity or over loaded. If two blocks of rigging tackle were so hard together they couldn't be tightened further, it was said they were "Chock-a-Block".

FLOGGING THE CLOCK It's killing time or simply doing tasks in a slow and leisurely fashion. Originally derived from "Flogging the Glass," a practice from the early days of sail when time on deck was marked by an hour-glass. Young midshipmen entrusted with turning the glass over to mark the passing of an hour would tap on the side to make the sand fall through faster.
