No, not the city. The sub. The USS Hartford.
The Navy just sent out a news release, saying the crew of the USS Hartford “received a squadron Letter of Commendation for going a thousand days without any of its nearly 140 sailors being involved in any driving under the influence (DUI) incidents. ”
This is certainly good news, and I mean no disrespect whatsoever to the crew of the Hartford and everyone who serves our nation, but is staying clean and sober behind the wheel really deserving of a commendation?
I mean, it’s like, ummm…the law. That’s it. Yeah. The law.
Of greater concern, I suppose, is that the news release doesn’t quite mention whether the Navy is referring to driving a car or truck, or driving the sub.
This was, after all, the sub that collided with the USS New Orleans last March in the Strait of Hormuz.
At least they’re finishing the year strong.
