VETERAN'S DAY SUNSET, 2017
The ships you see are "Readiness Ships," owned by the U.S. Department of Defense and leased to private companies who maintain them, staff them, and keep them ready to sail at a moment's notice. Each one has about 8 football-fields worth of parking space and is chock full of the heavy equipment needed wherever hostilities may break out. Everything from fuel trucks to reinforced HumVees to huge army tanks to helicopters and more -- and all full of fuel, up-to-date in maintenance, and ready to roll (or fly).
