Washington state received $90K federal funding to study a proposal to build a bridge across the Sinclair Inlet near Bremerton, Washington using two or three retired US Navy aircraft carriers. 

Retired USS Kitty Hawk and USS Independence are being eyed for the project, but the US Navy says that are not currently available.

We’re going to have a SWCC boat in tow at X Games Austin this year.

SWCC stands for Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewman. Translation: Elite forces who support Navy SEALs and conduct missions all their own. Their tools of the trade include a GAU 17-A minigun that can fire up to 4,000 rounds per minute. Their boat is called SOC-R and is capable of going 40-plus knots and stopping in just over a boat length.
