And there I was, in Norfolk in 1984, just a few miles from that ship when they had the auction of all the fittings and so forth. Being in the Navy at the time and more than ready to get out, I was not at all a ship fan. Of course I'm still retroactively kicking myself these days. I could have probably got at least some silverware, plates, or something. And then there is the fact I could have also walked around the ship.
I do own a life jacket, some paper bar napkins, and some radio-telegraph carbon copies, but I bought those on eBay a few years ago. Not much you can do with that stuff as far as a house decoration.
