Should have added that we now have a small carrier task force in museum ships in
Louisiana and Texas now. The USS Kidd a destroyer, in Baton Rouge, the USS
Orleck in Orange, TX, the submarine SeaWolf in Galveston, The battleship Texas
in Houston, and the aircraft carrier USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, TX. A
little rehab work, a few working weapons, some fuel, we could win a small war
with someone like Rhode Island maybe.
