Todd and I are very excited to attend the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation fundraiser tomorrow aboard the historic USS Iowa. We’ll be joined by friends who love our troops as much as we do, and Todd will reunite with former Navy Seal and “Stars Earn Stripes” operative Brent Gleason.

This battleship is the perfect setting to honor the families of our Navy’s elite fighting force. The USS Iowa has a long and distinguished history as the lead ship of her class and the fourth to bear the name of the great state of Iowa. She was built and commissioned in 1943 in the New York Navy Yard in Brooklyn. During World War II, she transported President Roosevelt to and from Casablanca and was part of the Battles of the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf, and she was even present in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945, when the Japanese formally surrendered, ending World War II. She later served in the Korean War and was decommissioned for the first time in 1958. During President Reagan’s defense buildup in the 1980s, the USS Iowa was modernized and recommissioned, and she carried President Reagan during the International Naval Review in the Hudson River on the Fourth of July, 1986. She was decommissioned for the last time in 1990, and is now based at Berth 87 in the Port of Los Angeles where she’s open to the public as the USS Iowa Museum.

This great ship and her crew represented the finest traditions of our United States Navy spanning over five decades. The USS Iowa, like our SEAL-NSW families, embodies the values of the Navy song, “Faith, Courage, Service True, with Honor, Over Honor, Over All.”

It is an honor to help raise funds for our sacrificial Seal families. God bless the men and women of our United States Navy and, so importantly, their families!

    Understand we have only two carriers deployed and 214 ships. Sounds like obama is inviting attack on U.S.
