Yes. I have a photo of Cole on the Blue Marlin, a similar semi-submersible heavy lift ship. Stethem is a sister to the Cole, so I'm planning to post the photo in the next day or two to accompany the post on the Stethem's transit. I would have named the Blue Marlin instead of the Super Servant 5 except the Blue Marlin wasn't built until 2000.
I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...
