quote: Isn't the DC Navy yard where Adm. Boorda supposedly shot himself in the chest with a rifle? Is my memory incorrect?
I don't recall where it occurred, though I recall that he and his family lived at the DC Yard.
I served under his son on a DDG back in '98 timeframe. His son (GREAT CO) got the entire wardroom together on Day 1 of his command to address the situation ... unfortunately, I did not get to hear what was said ... I was on watch as OOD.
But, I was told later that he said something to the effect of ... "I know who my father was" ... and "last time I will speak of this" ...
