Forgot to post this back in May when it was published. A very interesting report from an anonymous naval aviator aboard the USS Eisenhower.

"From now until when this campaign ends (approximately one month from now), every post will be related to my campaign to raise as much money as possible for Soldier's Angels.

"Soldier's Angels is a non-profit organization that does more for deployed troops than I can write here. The best way to find out everything they offer is to visit their website.

[...]

"I plan to auction off, on eBay, a signed copy of Homefront. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to Soldier's Angels.

"I realize I'm a 'nobody.' I'm not someone whose name will really mean anything scribbled inside of the book. However, I put over a year of my time, and every ounce of whatever writing talent I have, into this book. [...]

"It's the best, and most important, thing I've ever written. I'm giving it because it's all I have to give for this effort, and because it's not about the book, anyway. It's about where the money is going."

"My name is Mike Kobold, I'm a watchmaker and an armchair explorer. Unlike some of the hard-core professionals who wear my watches -divers, astronauts and explorers- I'm pretty much just a regular guy. Like most people, I have downfalls, shortcomings, and a number of irrational fears. For one, I'm scared of heights and am therefore risk-averse. I have ADD and am mildly dyslexic. Food is my downfall and I eat considerably more chocolate than anyone should. My job is sedentary and so is my lifestyle.

"Yet I've made it my goal to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. How do I go from here to there? Training and nutrition only get you so far, which is why I'm having to learn to control my fears and to overcome my weaknesses. My goal is to raise money for the Navy SEAL Warrior Fund. Because even a regular guy should do his part to help those who have risked their lives in the line of duty."

I'm a little bummed that they're simply mothballing the Kennedy. I was kind of hoping it would go somewhere in the States as a museum. It would be cool to take a trip with my dad to tour the ship he served on.
