Glad to see inclusive report on Navy ships return to port

When I picked up my Daily Herald from my porch this morning, I was absolutely delighted to read the front-page article about the return of our Navy destroyers after 200-plus days at sea and the photos that showed Navy women in leadership roles and Navy men loving men (“After 200-plus days abroad, Navy destroyers return to Everett homeport,” The Herald, Aug. 11)

I am here to tell you that it’s been a long time coming, and I am grateful for reporter Isabella Breda’s kind and very matter-of-fact writing. I can only imagine what it was like for the Herald editors meeting to decide if they should run a picture of two men kissing in the Heraldnet report, but common-sense prevailed.

As a Navy brat from many years ago The Herald and the Navy have come a long way and I am so here for it. So much appreciated.
