"We've talked to many veterans who have served on these ships and
their first reaction when we say we're going to sink it is always, 'Oh no!' " Dey said.
"But then you look at the alternative, which is turn it in to razor blades or scrap
metal. We talk about it as serving a final mission and then they become very enthused that
the ship will remain intact and carry on."
