Veterans of the uniformed, non-uniformed, and the clandestine services are everywhere.  Many prefer others not even suspect they served.  My hat’s off to you all.  Click here for “five facts to know” about the day.

Pondering what to post today, I came to these photos shared by an anonymous photographer from years ago, back when these ghost fleet ships, more here  and here, waited.  Unlike flesh and blood people, these vessels waited as if in quarantine, isolated here until they were returned to service or scrapped.  Veterans return and mostly blend back into the society from which they temporarily excluded themselves.

 

I never saw the ghost fleet on the Hudson, but being sequestered in rafts, these ships certainly caught attention of everyone who passed.

Thank a vet or vets today for their service.

Thanks to an anonymous photographer for having taken these photos.

My post from exactly a decade ago can be found here.
