Aircraft carriers, championed by Trump, are vulnerable to attack
Last week, President Donald J. Trump chose the deck of the newest U.S. aircraft carrier, the $13 billion GERALD R. FORD, for a speech extolling his planned boost in military spending, but there is a problem, Reuters reports.
On this Day, 6 April 1940, Lieutenant Commander J.K. McLeod, RAN and Able Seaman R.E. Bampton and were killed in action when the Royal Navy destroyer in which they were serving, HMS Glowworm, (Lieutenant Commander G.B. Roope, RN) engaged and rammed the German heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper in a one-sided action in Norwegian Waters.
