For those of you that don’t know, it’s currently Fleet Week here in the Big Apple with tons of uniformed men and women going around making the rest of us look bad at bars.* Fox News’ Jenna Lee has already snagged herself a Naval officer in a more permanent fashion, but she was still able to celebrate Fleet Week as well as the beginning of Memorial Day weekend by climbing aboard the Coast Guard’s USCGC Eagle, a training cutter, and heading up the rigging of what is known as “America’s tall ship.”
*Not that I care. I don’t. If bloggers had sweet uniforms, bar ladies would talk to me all the time too. Whatever.
Joined by Captain Eric Jones, Lee learned some of the history of the boat which was actually built by the Nazis at the beginning of World War II but has been in the employ of the Coast Guard ever since Germany’s defeat. It is now used to train future officers.
