Embarked on Eternal Patrol

Admiral Eugene Fluckey commanded U.S.S. Barb during WW2 and I am humbled and priveledged to have served, long after and in a far colder war, in the same Navy as this great man.

He was more than a courageous fighter, he was a great leader during and after the war. He was in the finest tradition of the Naval Officer and the standards set by John Paul Jones for our service. He died, at age 93, on June 28th and will rest at the U.S. Naval Academy.

I an indebted to Outside the Beltway for posting here on his death.
