Parade Mag Apologizes for Nazi Ship Image in U.S. Navy Story
U.S. Naval Institute ^ | 5/20/13 | U.S. Naval Insitute

Posted on 05/20/2013 12:47:40 PM PDT by Saint X

Parade Magazine is apologizing for a design flub that paired a Nazi battleship with an award winning U.S. Navy chef, the magazine’s 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 Davenport’s 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.

Lols!

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.

The Bismarck-class silhouette is shown TWICE - the one under the fork, the other under the frying pan.

What the F*** is the matter with people. A black silhouette is going to offended someone somewhere sometime? Looking at that graphic I doubt that one person in a million would look at that one silhouette and think. OH horrors! That is a WWll German ship. It's a G.D. newspaper inserted magazine being read mostly by very low information voters, for God's sake.

Hey it is the media. One floating thing looks just like any other floating thing.

Just like our floating thing in the WH.

HAH!!

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.

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.

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.

Wow - I noticed that this weekend. My dad served on the Iowa and so the battleship profile caught my eye. I noticed four turrets and thought "Did the get a Montana silhouette in there?". Didn't realize it was actually a Nazi ship.

Sorry, Megan, Might have to disagree with you on that one.

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.

Concur..you are spot on. The Iowa class BBs are gorgeous..clean lines...

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..

That is the first thing that pops in my head whenever I see Parade Magazine anywhere.

Well done sir, well done.

Not entirely true, FRiends.

Behold the USCGC Eagle (WIX-327) the Coast Guard training ship that was formerly the "Horst Wessel" of the Kriegsmarine. Taken as a war prize in 1945, she was renamed the "Eagle" and assigned to the USGC.

Interestingly, her hold was an exact mockup of a U-boat cabin, where Nazi submariners would train before the outbreak of WW2.

Before we get to our top Memorial Day story...  photo Wolf-Blitzer-SR-1-Obama.gif let us view these messages from our sponsors.

When you are watching Anderson Cooper and want a Cran-Appletini... we can provide it!

Teacher tells us to use only AT&T... and that if you disagree with Obama you are a racist--

I don’t get article writers/editors who don’t just find a pic of the ship they need? I’m sure they could get a pic from a Navy website! instead some moron probably just googled “ship silhouette”.
