- Gearing Class Destroyer USS Chevalier (DD-805) was commissioned in 1945. In 1967, she deployed to the 7th Fleet area of operations to take part in the Vietnam War. ⬅️ One of her crew members made friends with a dog while ashore. He took the dog aboard, and attempted to keep the dog a secret. But, dogs 🐕 do what they do, which is bark! Word got around, and the sailor and dog were summoned to see the Commanding Officer. After that meeting, it was not only decided that the dog would stay; she was also named Cindy and given the rank of E-3. Throughout the deployment, she would muster in the electronics room, and came to know all her crew well; and even barked at strangers. By 1968, she was stateside and went home with one of her crew. If you’re up in the Chicago area this summer, check out our sister museum aboard @navstaglakes, the @museum_americansailor , which features an exhibit about mascots and tails in the US Navy. And be sure to give them a like or follow @museum_americansailor to stay in the loop. Later this summer, some of our staff members and our LEGO kits will make their way up north for a LEGO event that promises to satisfy the LEGO ship builder in us all. #hrnm #hrnmlego #navymascot #vietnamwar #vietnam #adopteddog #chicagogram #navymuseum #chicagotourism

- I may have a cold and had to pay $520 after my U-Haul got towed yesterday, but at least I have a cute robe and a perfect new apartment. Gotta find that silver lining.
- Winter just ended and summer has officially begun in Chicago. We spent our Friday night with an impromptu get together outside with our neighbors and have decided to make it a tradition to do this every year or every Friday this summer. I’m cool with that. Happy Memorial Day weekend!
