 Navy Deploys USS Barry to Middle East
By  Andrew Johnson

Bashar al-Assad’s forces may find themselves face-to-face with Barry, who is already in the region in case military strikes are launched against Syria. The USS Barry, that is.

Along with the destroyer sharing the nickname of the president, the Navy has deployed three other ships to the Mediterranean in preparation for the possible military action: the USS Ramage, Gravely, and Stout.

The destroyer is, in fact, named after the American Revolutionary War officer John Barry, who went on to be the nation’s first commissioned naval officer.

Don't you know those sailors are having (shall we say) "mixed emotions" just about now.
