Here's the business end from the CO's parking spot:

I was stationed on Big E as the Auxiliaries Officer from '08 to '12. I was pretty stoked when I saw the beach mural as the tag!!

I guess this can't be the actual tag though as you have to access the Naval Base then have to risk being arrested taking the pic.

Instead I'll use this one:

If you look at the mural tag shot there's a submarine in the lower left area of the picture. I started out in the Navy on an old Missle Boat (USS BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SSBN640), so I thought this one would be appropriate. I started my sea duty career on subs and finished on the Big E.

The sail is in a park right next to the oldest shipyard in the United States. The yard first opened on 1 November 1767 and has been doing ship repair ever since. The park is accessed off "the 16th Presidents Street" in Portsmouth.

Happy Hunting!
