I hope it's a good ceremony. You're right it should be museumed.
The Admiralty is going to scrap her Sayquist! I could almost cry. So many years served, so many people served on her. So many times she was called to the rescue of our soldiers and diplomats overseas, not to mention her record of rendering humanitarian aid. I wish i could see that majestic vessel one more time as she was when she was pulling alongside my oiler, that massive prow slicing through the waves, the theme to "Star Trek The Motion Picture" blaring over her speakers. I'd like to salute her one more time before those damned vultures at the scrapyards get at her. It's a sorry end for a vessel that served so brilliantly and so well.
