and many an eye has danced

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 04, 2007

A happy 4th of July to all our readers in the US-- or outside the US for that matter.

If you're wondering what is THE best way to celebrate Independence Day, how about this plan, being carried out by former CWN hand Dom Bettinelli? Can you top it? Not a chance!

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Thanks Phil. It was as amazing as I thought I would be. I've since added a story, photos, and video to bring you all along on my once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    My grandfather served on both the Guardo Constitution in Boston and the Constellation, presently in Baltimore, when they were training ships. I flew into Logan on July 4, 1976 and, from the air, witnessed "Old Ironsides" on its famous trip to Marblehead. It was thrilling beyond words. My family has about 35 veterans going back to the Civil War. Almost all were in the Navy including my father, my brothers and me. May God bless America and "Mend our every fault!" I am proud of my Country!
