    Keane Maddock (L) and Royal Fulkerson enjoy shore leave in Bahrain at the Base 4th of July party.

    Command Master Chief Gerald Provancha (L) and Captain Mark Deardurff spend some holiday time with their sailors.

    This is a real sign along the highway. I caught it out of the corner of my eye while driving down to see the famous "Tree of Life."

    Catchy Caption of the Day

    Actual Caption:

    Five-time champion Takeru Kobayashi (R) of Japan and Joey Chestnut (L) of the United States battle it out during the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island in New York.

    "I hit a wall and just felt really tired," said a clearly disappointed Chestnut.

    Wasn't Kobayashi a character in "Usual Suspects?"
