USS Fort Worth

 Did you know that every Navy ship has a support group (non-military) attached to it?  The USS Fort Worth's group is located in Fort Worth, and my mother is a member.  The support groups send care packages and additional equipment/food/entertainment to the sailors.  Turns out the Fort Worth group is more active in this department than the groups for aircraft carriers, and the group holds a get together between sailors and members annually.  We were privileged to go with my mom to the get together in September.  It was held at Rahr Brewery, where they introduced a new beer specifically designed for the ship.  It's a pale ale that fits in with muggy hot weather, since the ship is stationed on the South China Sea.  We have three cases coming to Angola.
