My trip to New York City for Fleet Week of 2007

This is a narrated slideshow of photos (and a couple short videos) I shot while in New York City for Fleet Week of 2007. Fleet Week is an annual tradition where many ships and submarines from Norfolk, Groton and Mayport visit Manhattan and are treated hospitably by New Yorkers. It was one of the best weeks of my active duty career! I was an FC2 (SW) [second class fire controlman - surface warfare qualified] stationed aboard the USS WASP (LHD-1). I worked on the NATO SeaSparrow Surface Missile System. This is the first of what I hope will be MANY video slideshows of photos and videos I took in places I've visited around the world during my time in the Navy.

2010 vlog #9 | the cast comes off; new camera; reviewing hiatus?


A fairly brief vlog showing my cast getting cut off and the brace I have to wear instead. I also talk about the idea of taking some time off from beer reviewing. I show off a new HD camera I got (although I'm considering returning it).
