I got this yesterday and have not be able to confirm, but looks legit.

From our friends at The Duffel Blog

Washington, DC - Both the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars issued a joint statement today condemning the U.S. Navy over the launch of its newest warship, the USS Jane Fonda.

"Without getting into Jane Fonda's activities during the Vietnam War, we feel that it is highly inappropriate to name a warship after an actress with no ties to the military," said James Mitchell, a spokesman for both groups.

The ship's name, which had been kept under wraps until right before the launch, was revealed yesterday at a star-studded event presided over by Ms. Fonda.

Ms. Fonda made a statement prior to the launch, saying, "I dedicate this ship to the brave men who fought and died in Vietnam, especially those in the 66th Viet Cong Regiment."

The actress is extremely unpopular among some military groups for her activities during the Vietnam War, such as posing for propaganda pictures with North Vietnamese soldiers, referring to American prisoners of war as "hypocrites and liars", and more recently cutting the line at a Target in front of a guy wearing an American flag t-shirt.

American warships, traditionally named after states, cities, and posthumous military heroes, have increasingly been named after living figures ever since 1998, when the Republican-controlled Congress named 18 warships in a row after former President Ronald Reagan.

    I did a Snopes search, there is no US Navy ship named after the *, period. There is rumor of an outhouse in the cascade mountains of Washington named in her honor.
    Happy fourth of July, and welcome home.

    Thanks for the update Capt; I thought the USA had finally lost all respect and hope.

    Naming a ship after Hanoi Jane would be as horrible as naming one Barack Hussein Obama. [;)]


    Well, if anyone would authorize her (sic) name on a US ship, hussein obama would be the one. [;)]

    "Looks legit" You gotta be kidding.

    She might be able to get a body tuck business named after her, but not a ship.


    GOOD call W.D.

    Actually Hanoi Jane said the pics taken of her sitting on the missle launcher in Hanoi was the biggest mistake she ever made and will regret it to her dying day.

    And on her dying day, I plan to hoist a beer, and shed a tear for the enemy.

    Stopped in a truck stop a while back. In the urinals there had these little targets with Hanoi Jane's face as the 10 ring. I hate I only had to piss once.

    Yeah, speakin' of the *'s dying day. They better bury her at sea, lest her burial plot becomes a latrine. I would wait in line to wet down her grave. No grass would ever grow on her grave for the soggy dirt.

    I disagree! Why not beat the liberals to the punch and name a garbage scow, or sanitary barge, after him?

    I plan to do one better. If she dies before I, I WILL make a special trip to her grave site and piss on it. [^]

    Really... "Looks legit"???

    My old man always said, "Think". I do nowadays. And first thing I would think now is, "That's someone's humor".

    OP - you didn't think right away that that's someone's humor?

    C'mon dude - think.

    US55- perhaps you are unfamiliar with the term "shed a tear for the enemy?"

    Means to micturate.

    I'm not familiar with the Duffel Blog but if that was supposed to be a joke, it God damned sure wasn't funny.

    I enjoy military humor, but I intensely dislike despicable attempts at military humor from those who disrespect or hate my country. [V] [:(!]
