Congratulations Captain Phillips!

Title Insurance with Bell Title /Triserv LLC

Our United States special forces, the United States Navy and specifically Navy Seals persevered and were successful in rescuing Captian Richard Phillips of the coast of Somalia after being held hostage by pirates for 5 days. It was a high dram affair that had many on edge internationally. Vice Admiral, Bill Cortney of the USS Bainbridge ordered navy snipers to shoot in a split second decision after he determined that Capt. Phillips in "imminent danger"

I applaud the decision and wish Capt. Phillips a safe and happy return to his family and friend in Underhill, Vermont.

Great Story!

Stay Sharp, good luck and be well!

Bo - absolutely. Capt Phillips is a true American hero, and those SEALS aren't so bad either!

I agree with your post, but I'm not quite sure why Capt. Phillips should be congratulated. A hearty "Thank you" seems to be more in order in my view.

And as Mike said in his comment above mine, how about those Navy SEALS? From right here in San Diego. And how about President Obama giving the go-ahead? Excellent operation.
