The SS Edward P. Costigan was a 'Liberty Ship' freighter and was named after somewhat of a famous lawyer, at least he was thought of highly in the state of Colorado.
A lawyer that caught the eye of others, including the President Woodrow Wilson.  Well one thing led to another and he got involved with supporting a bill that was fairly significant in our history.
So it was only right that his name be submitted to be place on a 'Liberty Ship'.
So here is the story of what Costigan the Lawyer achieved as well as what involvement the ship named after him got involved in.

Well Y'all I'm an old Navy man from way back.....actually an old Navy Diver from way back, and I'll have to tell you I just don't like the looks of this 'New' multi-mission destroyer, but I'm an old sea dog coming from the "old school".

Anyway I've wrote a small piece of my displeasure if you wish to give it a go.

Now I also threw some words together about a 'Ferry Disaster' that took place not so long ago.  Even with a few years back you got to wonder how this really could have taken place.  This has always fogged up my brain on how 4000 people lost their lives in this one event....I mean this was bad....and most due to a corrupt Ship Lines.

Now I can set here and provide Y'all with a run-down on the history of Aircraft Carriers, but that is not what this article is all about.

Right at first I do give a very short run down on the carrier history...believe me it is very brief.  What I wanted to do is provide to the reader somewhat of a "ball-park" picture of what other countries are coming up with, and believe me it is pretty darn interesting.

So where does the design go from this point?  The "fixed wing" aircraft is changing by the week....and the choppers are right behind them....this may or may not have a "direct" impact on the "next century" of world carriers.
If you'd care to give this one a read....and make a comment....please do.  You can read by clicking on WORLD'S AIRCRAFT CARRIERS.
