USS Robert A. Heinlein

Instructions from Arnold Bailey at Baen's Bar

The US Navy is looking for a name for its new Zumwalt class destroyer.

They don't have RAH's name listed. Since he graduated from the Naval academy (class of '29) and since his 100th birthday is coming up it would be nice for the Navy to honor him.

If you go to this link http://www.usszumwalt.com/mos/ and look at the right hand side of the page you will find a list of names. You can click "none of the above" and then click submit your choice. Write in USS Robert A. Heinlein and click vote. It's very simple and a wonderful way to honor a very great man.

[When I clicked on other the write in was an email - but I'm sure that works too]

I despise l'Escroc and Vile Pin
