I love those older video Teresa. I had seen this one years ago. It brought back some great memories. Thanks for posting this.

I recall seeing this film while I was in the Navy many years ago, along with the Victory at Sea series. John Paul Jones earned his honored place in American Naval History.

Wow! That took me back to when I was a kid in grade school! Loved those old films, and even though, I tended to pass notes during them, I did enjoy them.

But pretended not to. *smile*
