"Eagle" is a magnificent ship. Anyone who has the chance should tour her.
Show a military ID and you might just get a personal tour, especially if a retiree.
I was able to get a full tour due to knowing a former Main-Mast Captain BM1 -
best man with a Bos'un pipe I ever met.

Congrats on your celebration. Proud to call you fellow seamen/women.

Never forget: Psalm 107:23-31 King James Version (KJV)
