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.
