Miss Louisiana USA Visits USS Alexandria
USS Alexandria (SSN 757) was visited by the reigning Miss Louisiana USA, Sara Brooks, earlier this week before leaving on deployment today. As this post is clearly useless without pictures, here's a shot of Miss Brooks giving the order to "Prepare to snorkel" (seriously):
I guess the restriction on non-qualified visitors to submarines operating equipment put in place after the Greeneville - Ehime Maru collision has been rescinded. I always appreciated having celebrities come down to the boat to raise the crew's morale, and I'm sure the crew of the Alexandria appreciated it too.
