THE CREEK DWELLER

Tales from a small creek on the Eastern Shore

USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000)

Just Launched.DDG 1000 2

I’m not making this up.

Ultra modern design eh! The first of a new class of Destroyers.
To be commanded by who?  Captain James Kirk USN who else! No kidding!
What’s more, I was reminded very much of this old lady.
Olympia and becunaUSS Olympia, heavy cruiser, laid down 1895 and Dewey’s flagship at the battle of Manila Bay.  Now languishing at the Port of Philadelphia and in danger of being broken up for want of funds.
Barely a century between invention and reinvention.
