Bermuda Triangle Sailors Having Time Of Their Never-Ending Lives
WATERS UNKNOWN – Describing every day as a bottomless trove of new and exciting opportunities, sailors aboard the frigate USS Simpson say they are getting the absolute most out of their deployment to the mysterious Bermuda Triangle.
“This is the kind of experience a sailor remembers for the rest of his life,” said Boatswain’s Mate Second Class Freddy Moore, referring to a theoretical future that will never come and, indeed, in this dimension, does not exist.
