Naming Navy Ships

I wrote my congressman telling him to try stopping this Murtha bullshit and getting the ship named for a man that deserves the honor.
That man is LT. John Finn, U.S.N. retired. He is the oldest living recipient of the Medal of Honor. He earned it at K-Bay when the Japs attacked Hawaii. The full account of what John did will probably get you really pissed that the Navy would waste naming a ship for a total waste piece of crap like Murtha.
John Finn is a heck of a guy and I'd love to see him honored while he is still alive, he's 100 y.o.

Here's a URL but not the whole story.
