In 1992 My Dad came aboard my ship "USS Constellation" in the Philadelphia Shipyard. I took him on a tour of the ship, the Photographic Division, and the Bridge. He really liked that, especially the bridge. I could tell by the gleam in his eye that we had survived my several misadventures of youth and were truly proud to be Father and Son. In 2003, he returned to the same Aircraft Carrier to witness my retirement from active duty on the Flight Deck with San Diego as a backdrop. ... with loving memories ... Jim Russell
