I had a friend in the navy that said teddy is still discussed today.
I heard from the interwebs that ATMs book is still read today in the navy.
On February 22nd 1985 8 year-old Cherrie Mahan got off her school bus around 4:10 in the afternoon and never made it home. Cherrie's home in Butler County PA, just north of Pittsburgh, was only about 50 feet from the bus stop. She got off the bus with three other children. According to Debbie Burk, a mother who lived near the Mahan family she watched the kids play for a bit. Debbie watched Cherrie walk past her car and then drove away.
Around 4:30 when Cherrie did not arrive home her mother and step-father began looking for her and made phone calls in an attempt to find her. The police were contacted within the hour.
Children on the bus would tell the police they saw a blue van with a painting of a skiing scene following the bus. Debbie Burk and her son also remember seeing the van. Vans all over were searched, but despite efforts by local, state, and national agencies no van has ever been seized in connection with Cherrie's disappearance. In 1998 Cherrie was declared legally dead by her family.
In January 2011, which was when the case was aired on CNN, police received a tip that they deemed promising. They did not release details as they did not want to endanger the investigation. Nothing ever seemed to materialize from this tip.
In 2014 a tip led police to investigate a woman in Michigan who was thought to be Cherrie. The woman was determined not Cherrie.
In the summer of 2018 Cherrie's mother, Janice McKinney, received a letter from someone calling themselves "Pastor Justice". The letter detailed who killed Cherrie, why they killed her, and where her body could be found. The letter ended with "I pray you find some peace after you find her body." The letter was turned over to the police. They are looking into the letter. At the same time another tip had them investigating an Armstrong Junkyard and an old mine shaft in Butler County.

What happened to Cherrie Mahan? Why was the van not found given the rural area and smaller population? Why has nothing come of the 2011 tip or the letter?
Edit- I can't spell.
>April 10, 1870: On this day in 1870, Dennis Mahan Michie (1892) was born. Michie grew up at West Point as his father, Peter Michie (1863), taught at the Academy from 1867 until his death in 1901. The junior Michie was the first coach and captain of the Army football team and is credited with beginning the Army-Navy football game tradition. On Nov. 29, 1890, Michie issued a challenge to the Naval Academy for a football game. Michie Stadium was named in his honor and completed in 1924, costing $300,000 and seating 16,000. The first game held at the stadium was on Oct. 4, 1924, when Army beat St. Louis 17-0. Michie was killed in action in San Juan, Cuba on July 1, 1898.
To complete the circle, Alfred Thayer Mahan's middle name was an homage to Sylvanus Thayer, the "father of West Point." There a few things at West Point named for him.
Can I go home now?
I much prefer the stealth of the ijn dd’s but I’m going down the American line also. Does the mahan essentially play just like the Farragut? The torp range is absolutely ridiculous.
I’ve tried looking up guides to the mahan but most are for pc and always mention the upgraded torp distance. The console version torp upgrade, only upgrades the speed.
What elite bonus is best for Mahan?
Advanced Gun Director: 4% main battery range
Advanced Engine: max speed 5%, acceleration 10%
or Meritorius Service: 10% XP Earned
So for context, I've got Shima & Kebab. Love those two ships. Always held off on playing the American DD's because of the shell arc and because it gives me PTSD flashbacks of when I used to play the Atlanta. ANYWAYS...
I now have a Mahan w/ an 11 pt captain. I need to re-spec the captain (last time I set it up was before Russian DD's were introduced, oof) but looking for tips, tricks and "oh yeah, btw, heads up" notes on getting my Mahan up to snuff and starting to push through the ranks up toward the holy gun/torp boat that is known as the Gearing.
Thanks in advance and as always...

So ever since i’ve gotten the Mahan, i’ve been struggling to play with destroyers. I feel like it’s incredibly easy to die in this thing and i usually lucky if i get a kill sometimes.
I loved the ship before, the Farragut. It was an amazing ship to play in. However in the Mahan i struggle to get within torpedo range and when i do, I usually miss most of my torpedoes.
Tell me your secrets please.
I was just thinking about when Eric Carr stepped in, people really enjoyed him for his style and The Fox character. If he came in as the Catman, would people still think as highly as they did back in the day?
I personally feel it is a shame Thayer and Singer weren't given fresh designs. I don't think Sonic Boom and Monster are terrible albums.
