"War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want."
General William Tecumseh Sherman, U.S.A.
I did like the sergeants opinion of the chauchat
Good Movie, when that ship was the ROSE and based out of New England...it would come to Bay City, Michigan during the summers...My parents paid for a 3-4 day trip for me when I was a teenager. It is not that big of a ship for sure...Climbing the tar-coated rat lines up to the crows nest was a hair on the chest experience for me....and I hate heights. The neat thing was we went through a couple T-Storms out on Lake Huron...sure did start rocking.
Lots of FUN!!!
