what does "USS"mean?
As chief of staff, I was the messenger of bad news for Ford on many occasions. It could be something like the Dow Jones Industrial Average taking a sharp drop, or some criticism in the papers from a former member of his staff, or actions with more far-reaching implications such as the 1975 seizure of the USS Mayaguez in Southeast Asia by the Khmer Rouge. I also was the one who had to deliver the bad news to Ford that Ronald Reagan had declined his offer to serve in his Cabinet. Reagan, of course, decided to challenge Ford for the presidency instead.i get it. it is United States Ship
