More people talk about service than provide it. The truth is, service is something you (1 comments)
Juan Ponce de Leon is said to have arrived in Florida in 1513. The last naval battle of the American Revolutionary War was fought off the shores of Cape Canaveral in 1783, between the USS Alliance and the HMS Sybill.
