From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 03/17/19:
Whenever I look at one of the new floating
skyscrapers which are the hallmark of today's passenger ships, I
think back with fondness to the more traditional ships like the
magnificent SS United States. Whenever she would sail back into
Hampton Roads, we'd walk up to the "Boulevard" with its
wonderful harbor view with great pride. We were so proud that
our hometown and her Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock
Company had crafted such a beautiful work of art on the water.
AMEN! Thank you so much, Jimmy!
