Doug's new stomping ground

Doug has a new stomping ground - the USS Lexington. Today was his day of orientation and next week he will start his volunteer work on board. When he was a kid he built a super size model of the USS Lexington. When we visited this area 3 years ago, we went to tour the Lexington and I was surprised that Doug knew all the details of the Lex even though he had not served on her.

So when we decided to come back to this area, we checked the webpage ( http://www.usslexington.com ) and found they use a tremendous amount of volunteers to staff the floating museum (It is not just an empty ship - Each area is devoted to different battles of several wars since the Lex fought multiple wars. Stay tuned... We'll tell you more as we learn it!
