Haven't Been This Sad Since My Dog Died

The USS Enterprise has been retired.

I spent 4 of the most... interesting... years of my life assigned to her (1987 to 1991).

From now on, no one new will know what that's like.

Sad.

UPDATE: Good deal - CVN-80 will be named the USS Enterprise.

  1. Yay for another Enterprise.

    Great poster showing the history but now I guess it will have to be updated to show CVN-80.

  2. On the bright side, we're retiring carriers that are light-years better than anything any other country could even put in the water.

  3. There ain't gonna be a CVN-80. It's going to be lost in the fall off the fiscal cliff, the money that would pay for it would make up at least fifteen minutes of paying for green companies run by Dem bundlers.
