You’re not in that boat all alone, not being able to physically work on the ship. However you’re on that special list of thousands who continually support the ship before and after it was returned from Greece. The crew that brought it back, and those who continue to work on her are to be commended, but like those of the “Homefront” war efforts during WWII your contributions were vital. Without your support the ship would be in the graveyard of ships, the deep six.
