Segment A: USS ENTERPRISE: An American Legend

There is perhaps no other ship as well known as the USS Enterprise. As the Navy readies to send the eighth USS Enterprise on its last deployment, we’ll take a look at the history of “America’s Fightingest Ship." We’ll talk with the Enterprise’s commanding officer about the work ahead for his crew. We’ll also talk with a naval historian about the legendary battles this great vessel survived.


Scheduled Guest:

CAPT William C. Hamilton, Jr., Commanding Officer of the USS ENTERPRISE


Segment B: 1812: The Navy’s War

In today’s second segment, we revisit America’s first major military conflict after its battle for independence. The War of 1812 saw the rise of America’s naval power – and cemented its future as a world power.


Scheduled Guests:

George Daughan, naval historian and author of “1812: The Navy’s War”

Joseph Bouchard, naval historian and former commander of Norfolk Naval Base
