The phrase “give me liberty or give me death” is attributed to Patrick Henry, whose 1775 speech persuaded the Virginia colony to raise troops to fight the British in the American Revolutionary War. For sailors and naval officers, liberty means shore leave — a brief vacation on land between voyages. A little Navy humor and somewhat funny joke was about, “what happens on liberty stays on liberty”.

Liberty for Navy Sailors in a Foreign Port is an adventure all in its own. Deep and meaningful conversations with locals and Wham expanded my understanding of the world…also caused a hangover at times.

The price if freedom is eternal vigilance.
