VETERANS DAY 11/11/2011

USS Biscayne AVP-11
Today here in the United States we remember all the Veteran's both ours and around the World.  As a Veteran NAUTICAL LOG is thinking of those who did not come home with us, who have passed on since, are still serving in various parts of the World for various political reasons and by no means least those who came home wounded.  They are the ones who need our help most of all.  The politicians who got us into action in the first place, by not being astute enough to avoid war as a political solution, are again the ones letting-down the returned wounded Veterans.  Why do we who served tolerate such people?  So far in the history of the World nobody has come up with the answer. 


The USS Biscayne AVP-11 was named after Biscayne Bay, Miami FL.  While she never served down here she did at Anzio, Italy.  In the new military museum under construction in Miami, FL she will be recognized by her own monument.


Best wishes to you all and


Good Watch

Captain the Count D. Peter Boucher, Kt. SMOM, MN (Ret.)

Do not forget that 400 of our fellow seafarers are still held captive by pirates off the coast of Somalia.  According to reports groups of the pirates are now fighting and killing each other so the captives are placed at even greater risk.
