Memorial Day Thoughts: USS Nimitz Blogger Embark 09, Trip Of A Lifetime

Today is memorial day and over email the social media team that covered the USS Nimitz Blogger Embark 2009 have been reminiscing on what was a trip of a lifetime:  the honor of meeting the crew of the USS Nimitz and have the chance to tell their story.
