USS NEWARK...."WOOD INSTEAD OF COAL"

"WE RUN OUT OF COAL...SO WE CHOPPED WOOD!!!"

-------------------
Well as you all know.....when you run out of one source of energy....you have to regroup....and seek out another source....but when your out in the middle of 'nowhere'....hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...that does present a problem of some sort.

Well then on top of all this....when your a big U.S. Navy 'Cruiser'....and your suppose to be on this "important good-will trip".....disappearing for three weeks some what "ruffles the feathers" of all those stuffed shirt Admirals.....

When they heard the news that ....this huge war ship just disappeared....no radio...no cable ...no "anyting" to fine out were one of there war machines was....they tended to puff on there stoggies just a tad more forcefull.

Now just try and get this picture in that grey matter of yours....  Here is the huge Navy battlewagon...having to pull up to some "god-for-saken-bay"...take boats into the nearest beach...close to a forest of some kind....and mind you saliors being issued axes to chop wood...."OH MY GOD!!!"

Oh yes....this is a true store....so if your a gamer to read...just click on this:

Hope you enjoy reading a tad of history.
