Admiral Lloyd Bridges Takes The Helm of Wuxi China Expatdom Aircraft Carrier

Admiral Lloyd BridgesIn a ceremony held aboard the WCERN “Fred Astaire“, Admiral Lloyd Bridges assumed formal-command of the gleaming new carrier.

Clad in immaculate white ducks, and adopting a crab-like, bow-legged gait (the legacy of his years spent as a cannon-cleaner aboard the
USS Missouri), the Admiral stepped forward to accept the ensign from his 2IC, Capt James T. Kirk. “Thats a few small steps for a man, and one giant leap for sea-dogginess!”, the Admiral said.

Gazing up at the gleaming new carrier, he said “from her gunnery to her flummery, she is a fine ship”. “With salt back in my loins again, this takes me back to when I first enlisted, at Pearl, all those year’s ago!”.
