The Navy and Its DDG-1000-Heading Wrong
(See R. H. Smith, p. 10, August 2007 Proceedings)
Bob A. Gabbert-Finally! Someone has the nerve to expose the DDG-1000 for the folly it is. I was especially pleased to see it was the skipper of the USS Wilkinson (DL-5), because my ship, the USS Kearsarge (CVS-33), operated with the Wilkinson. I remember watching that greyhound streak away from us because she was the fastest ship on the West Coast at that time.
I find it ironic that this article appears in the Coast Guard issue of Proceedings, as the Navy trying to move into the shallow waters of the littorals at the same time the Coast Guard is moving into deep water.
