Parade Magazine is apologizing for a design flub that paired a Nazi battleship with an award winning U.S. Navy chef, the magazines top editor told USNI News on Monday.
The story featured Senior Chief Culinary Specialist Derrick Davenport, a chef for the Joint Chiefs Chairman, who won the gold medal in the March 38th Annual Military Culinary Arts Competition at Fort Lee, Va.
But topping the heart warming tale of Davenports rise to the gold from the broom closet sized kitchen of the attack sub USS Annapolis (SSN-760) was a collection of ship silhouettes that included the most notorious Nazi battleships of World War II the Bismarck-class.

Reminds me of the Democrats using the Russian Naval fleet as the backdrop to one of their speeches.
As the military becomes as alien as a Martian to today’s imbecilic “press,” such mistakes only multiply.
I was over a friends house yesterday afternoon and when I flipped through it I noticed that immediately!
The First thing that poped into my head is that Parade does not give a Sh!t!
Because South Dakota Looks exactly like Bismark
Parade isn't fit to line my cat box.
Bismark, North Dakota
Close enough - whatever. Print it!
She had great lines....
To quote James Donald in Bridge on the River Kwai - madness.
Hey it is the media. One floating thing looks just like any other floating thing.
Just like our floating thing in the WH.
The silhouette appears TWICE!!
Just last year the RATS used images of Soviet ships and Turkish fighters to honor US vets at the RAT convention.
MSM and RATS....birds of a feather.
The ironic thing (for people that might care) is the Kreigsmarine was the most pluralistic of the German armed services, to the point there were jewish officers serving.
What Difference Does it Make!?!?!
They are Ship's Aren't they?
Here is a Picture of A Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier.
And The S.S. United States!
Apologies from this administration will continue to fall on deaf ears.
With them it is an admission of Guilt with “No Legal Controlling Authority” no “Guilt” no “Repercussions” no matter the subject or infraction.
That particular stupidity mentioned at the end of the article.
Russian ships displayed at DNC tribute to vets:
No offense to anyone, but the German ships were definitely the better looking ships. What’s sad is that the German ships that were captured were just used for nuclear target practice after WW2. Darn shame one of them didn’t become part of a museum like the U-505 did.
I find the Iowa Class to the finest class of Warships ever built.
Drop Dead Gorgeous.
But you are right, The Bikini Tests was the Fate of Prinz Eugen, which was Bismark's Escort on it's Famous Mission.
The German ships look cluttered..in part because the keels and hulls were laid down to conform with treaties supposedly in effect at the time..they piled all the stuff on top..especially the AA turrets... later on
The German pocket battleships..Graf Spee, etc..had a menacing,powerful look..
