Retro Wednesday: VOGE

Back in the heyday of the Hairy Navy ... a little shot of the USS VOGE (FF-1047) coming alongside for UNREP.

Watch it the whole way through as a reminder that those who say, "but the sea is so calm," usually speak too soon.

Speaking of the VOGE ... one of my favorite frigate stories involves her.

Who wouldn't want to write this OPREP?

And I thought a CG was rough. Just how much fun it was watching a boot camp sounding a fuel oil storage tank during UNREP and seeing him get a face full of DFM as the ship pitched and rolled.
