No sir I lived in Virginia for a long time and they used to have public events (pre-911) in Norfolk where private citizens could tour the navy ships and I attended one in 1997 and saw the engine room of the Constitution. My father was Army and I tried to go Navy at age 19 (I am 48 now)but the doctor didn't like the sound of my heart so I failed the physical so was a no-go. So to clarify I just liked the picture and commented but I was never in the military. God bless the troops!I guess i am really confused now.
