Since I claim to be the First War Baby (WW II), it would have to be 1945 or 1946.

The story goes...
* my mother heard about the bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7th,
* the news triggered the start of her labor,
* Roosevelt declared a state of war at noon on Dec. 8th,
* I subsequently was born, and have had the birth date of 12/08/41 ever since.

Also...

Catholics celebrate...
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
on December 8 A Holy Day Of Obligation

Now to the question...
I remember a Superman costume when I was about 6 years old in 1950.
I was with my friend who was a cop
Sorrowfully...
On August 29, 2005 an Ugly Lady stole many of my cherished possessions...
Some of which were pictures from the past...

Looking right squared away there, SarkysPal. I Salute.

From a U.S. Army Vet to a Naval Vet, I stand and salute-- and send thanks.

There is a thing about this thread and Halloween: My very last Halloween costume was as a Bugs Bunny. My older brother took me to the field fest; but I bolted, embarrassed to the nth degree, even tho no one could recognize me. Upon being found, the security guard had told my bother that two judges were looking for me because they had already judged me as a winner. Alas, boo-hoo - I coulda if I had woulda!

But back to you, Good Sir: knowing so much about the U.S. Navy -- broke ranks from four uncles, all late Navy vets and a birth son, who once served on a Frigate -- I do know that of all of the U.S.'s military forces, the Navy (and Marines, too?) feeds its personnel waaaaay more better than some fine-dining restaurants.

Now -- and you do not escape a meddle -- when the announcement came for all hands on deck, did you have'ta drop two hands of food?

Hee: jus' peeping in thru this here "periscope." Anchors away, My Good Sir; thanks and "waves" from an ancient mar-, er, U.S. Army dude, who once had to peel potatoes as an enlisted Man going in. The eyes of potatoes are upon you. And here's hoping Your ports of call these days aren't spooky.
