You'll stand at the podium. And point to commander Peters commander of the USS what Iraq. And you'll say commander Peters bring the ship polite. And at that very instant. The ship goes from being a piece of battle all by Lockheed Martin to being a part of the US naval fleet. And that's the symbolism means that it's very important about this about this terrible. Audio and AV OS does upgrade I mean you just you know that. The tradition and it's it's it's it's just it. Again this will be the third one and I've seen him in it's it's really it's wonderful. The only thing could snap my understanding is the only thing we could stop it commissioning is lightning. So if you're standing hey you know and you know beat you we get Mary we get very. Unseasonably warm or not warm mild weather in December so that's kind of opened the war. But if we get some small. And we're awful audience were turned lemons and lemonade. Either way it will make an effort to break that we Donovan lightning that's the good stuff.
