CV-25

The story about the CV-25 is that Jerry and Lenard were on the same ship. The ship was once blown in half killing three brothers named Solomon(?). This caused the military to divide Jerry and Lenard. Jerry never earned his stripes because he fought with sailors too much and got into trouble.
