USS Barry (DD-933) was one of eighteen Forrest Sherman-class destroyers of the United States Navy, and was the third US destroyer to be named for Commodore John Barry. Commissioned in 1954, she spent most of her career in the Caribbean, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, but also served in the Vietnam War, for which she earned two battle stars. Another notable aspect of her service was the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

Here are a couple photos from a trip to Sterling Vineyards in Calistoga, CA (Napa Valley). Yes, it is a large commercial vineyard, but Sterling offered a surprisingly easy-going experience without a ton of tourists. The winery itself sits high up on a mountainside, offering pleasurable views of the valley below. If the Greek architecture doesn’t make you forget where you are, the wine certainly will.

Speaking of first photographs, here is the first short film I ever made. Please don’t judge me, I was in college at the time. It was a time for experimenting, if you will. So turn the lights off and the sound up, sit back, relax, and enjoy a look into a college kid’s brain.
P.S. – This film won Best Picture at Virginia Tech’s Progeny Film Festival in 2004.
