24 Hours Aboard the USS Wasp
EDITOR’S NOTE: I am delighted to welcome as a guest columnist Kenneth G. Kraetzer, vice president, CBSI, a credit card marketing services firm in Harrison, N.Y., and a member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 50, Pelham, N.Y. Suddenly the Navy is getting a lot of respect. President Bush startled the media, the military, and all of us by choosing Admiral William Fallon to replace General John Abazaid as head of Central Command in charge of the land war in Iraq. Now Admiral Mike Mullen has been picked to replace Marine General Peter Pace as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
