And She Didn't Want To Die

There is something inherently human in naval ships--no matter what nation, what navy. SINKEX--Sinking Exercise of USS Thach (FFG 43) of venerable Oliver Hazard Perry class couple days ago somehow got me sad. Good ole' frigate just didn't want to die. 

There was something human in all that. I've seen it all before but each time my heart is not in the right place... call me sentimental if you wish, but naval ships are created to fight and defend you, to the best of their (and your) ability and that is how bond is created. It is strong and I can only imagine the feelings of USS Thach veterans. But she (in Russia naval ships are he) went with a bang...
