Road Trip: USS Ronald Reagan, California

USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) is a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered supercarrier in the service of the United States Navy. The ninth ship of her class, she is named in honor of former President Ronald Reagan, President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Upon her christening in 2001, she was the first ship to be named for a former president still living at the time.

Ronald Reagan was the first nuclear powered warship of any kind to be named in honor of a living former president. Unlike most of the other men honored by inclusion in this group, Reagan was not associated with the United States Navy, apart from his term as Commander-in-Chief, though one of his key initiatives in office was the 600-ship Navy program.

The contract to build Reagan was awarded to Northrop Grumman Newport News and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia on 8 December 1994, and her keel was laid down on 12 February 1998. The budget for the ship had to be increased several times and ultimately $4.5 billion was spent on her construction.

 This included a redesigned ship island. Reagan was christened by Reagan's wife Nancy on 4 March 2001 at Newport News Shipbuilding, the crew moved aboard on 30 October 2002, and the ship was commissioned on 12 July 2003 at Naval Station Norfolk, with Captain J. W. Goodwin in command. Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney were both present at the ceremony, as well as Nancy Reagan, who gave the ship's crew the traditional first order as an active unit of the Navy: "Man the ship and bring her to life." Ronald Reagan made her maiden voyage on 21 July 2003.

USS Ronald Reagan is the first carrier to have the Integrated Communication Advanced Network (ICAN) installed throughout all areas of the ship. ICAN consolidates a number of separate, cumbersome devices and replaces them with single, multi-function, multi-purpose units. ICAN impacts the distribution of navigational data, ships control, machinery control, interior and external communication, the core network backbone and associated power.

Digital communications run on a laser fiber backbone for enhanced communications and future upgrade capability. The ship’s engines have been outfitted with Titanium pistons for increased strength. Digital flat panels, instead of analog panels, are installed on the bridge. The ship’s control console uses a touch screen format.

The San Diego-based aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was diverted to the northern coast of Japan on March 11, 2011, to provide aid to victims of a magnitude 8.9 earthquake that has more than killed 300 people. The government of Japan has requested U.S. military assistance, said Cmdr. Greg Hicks of the 3rd Fleet in San Diego.

"Obviously, the Reagan has a huge amount of capability there from helicopter lift to medical," Hicks said. The Reagan was cruising across the Pacific en-route to deployment in the western Pacific Ocean and waters of the Middle East after departing Coronado last month.

Hubble, Zoos, And Singing Children

October 1, 2013

What do the Hubble Space Telescope, a zoo, and singing children have in common? According to the teaching of Psalm 148, we could conclude that they all point to God’s magnificent creation.

The idea that God created our world is often questioned, so perhaps it’s a good time for a reminder of the praise we and all creation should heap on our heavenly Father for His magnificent handiwork.

Hubble can help us with that through its eye-popping pictures of our universe. Every one of those brilliant photos points to stars that focus attention on God’s creative majesty. “Praise Him, all you stars of light!” says verse 3.

A visit to a zoo points us to the great diversity of wildlife God created. We look at verses 7 and 10 and say thank you to God for sea creatures, wild animals, insects, and birds.

And a few minutes of watching little children singing uninhibited praises to God symbolizes the truth that all people of earth should lift their voices in honor of our Creator (vv.11-13).

Stars, animals, and children: “Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted” (v.13). Let’s join in saying thanks for His creation. “Praise the Lord!”

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration! —Neander
Creation displays God’s power.

Read: Psalm 148

Praise Him, all you stars of light! —Psalm 148:3
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 11-13; Ephesians 4

Safely picked up and at home,thanks! The morning commute was easy. The afternoon commute was long by virtue of the airport diversion - I had a 40 minute sit-down in the Airport Cell Phone Waiting Lot - her flight was 20 minutes late arriving and she had checked baggage.

We had a smooth ride home with the exception of a couple of miles on the GW Parkway and the Capital Beltway.

It's great to have her home - She'll be living and working in D.C., but we will have a chance for her to sing at Choir this Sunday. I'm sure she will get an enthusiastic reception when she shows up at Rehearsal this Thursday.

But we warmed up into the 40s today.

AAA just left...the suburban was dead Saturday. I think a new battery is in the offing. Right now he jumped it, and is now on a trickle charger that I need to check every couple hours. He will be ordering a new battery. Thankfully I have my Blazer, so I’m not worrying about the timing. I just want it not to be dead once a week, and be available when we need it.

Good morning to everyone at the Canteen. Another cool morning here. Lots of fog in the area as well.
