As a volunteer activity, today I interviewed WWII veterans in a retirement home in St. Paul about their experiences in the military for a memoir to be published on our Veteran's Day on November 11. One of the most interesting and detailed stories was related by a man who was in the Navy, and I wonder what he would think of this ship!

This ship does important work to make the sea a safe place and provide support to many people. Good for them.

With such a long coastline, Italy must need many navy ships. Thanks for explaining about this one.

I was in the Navy, but in Naval Air and based ashore, so don't know much about ships. But what I did learn is that these particular ships are so vitally important to many military mission. It's the people behind the lines who provide the necessities of life who can make a battle or a war successful or unsuccessful.

I like the angel you shot the first photo from. The ship has a timeless look to it to my eyes, perhaps because I don't know a lot about naval ships.
