how good that they are aware of the light of the oceans and birds. I love the idea that they hitch rides on the ships and ar doe appreciated and helped when necessary. A much better military reputation than some of the other images.

I knew I liked sailors for a reason! I can imagine that seeing birds flying free would make them feel more connected to the rest of the world when they are far out to sea. It lets them know they are not all alone out there. Nice to hear of some of the more humane things that the military is capable of, rather than just all of the negative. Thanks for this great story Cher.
