Hunter Biden Joins the World’s Finest Navy

Note to all Sailors, please be on the lookout for Ensign Hunter Biden. Yes, the Vice President’s son is going down the tried path of a direct commission:

Joe Biden, Hunter Biden

Vice President Joe Biden will have another military son to worry about as he helps chart America’s course around the world.

Biden’s youngest son, Hunter, is joining the Navy.

The attorney and former lobbyist applied for a commission into the Navy Reserve as a public affairs officer and was selected, the Navy said Friday. Because Hunter Biden is 42, he needed a special waiver to be accepted, but that is not uncommon. He is one of seven candidates recommended for a direct commission for public affairs.

Or is Hunter Biden going to be comissioned as an LT, as in LT Hunter Biden? Could be, those PAO guys are smooth talkers.

An Aircraft Carrier’s Blog: The Talon

The USS Carl Vinson has its very own blog! Just reading the couple pages that I did, I assure you that the Sailors will make you proud to call them our own. The PAO-ish particulars:

Follow this blog for the stories of Sailors aboard USS Carl Vinson (CVN70) and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17 throughout their 2011-2012 West-Pac deployment. The identities of the bloggers whose products appear here and on any other Carl Vinson social media properties are known to the Public Affairs Officer and chain of command. They were selected out of a group of interested Sailors for their writing ability and at the recommendations of their immediate chains of command.

Crazy occurance: I am pawing my way through the Talon and I came across a Sailor I knew when I was a 2nd Class Petty Officer. He’s done well for himself, I am happy to report. Honestly, I remember him as thin and now he looks, um, well-fed. Go Navy chow!
