USS Theodore Roosevelt

I liked this picture because it is kind of science-fictiony and spooky. And I'm always ready for an excuse to do some honor to the troops...

A person from 50 years ago might not even guess this was a picture of a sea-going vessel. It kind of looks like a George Lucas space ship.
