Ragnar Danneskjold is one of my favorite characters in all the books I’ve read. He is a man of squandered wealth and nobility in name only, yet wants to make his own way on the earth. He sees the world on the wrong path and knows it in his heart the best way to deal with it, even though none of his friends agree with that way.
I’ve chosen this moniker to pay homage to Danneskjold’s ultimate life goal in the book Atlas Shrugged.
I’ve also chosen this picture of the USS Samuel B Roberts as my header. This Destroyer Escort along with the rest of the group Taffy 3 went up against the deadliest Japanese ships in their armada using skill, perseverance and straight courage. While it was sunk in the battle of Leyte Gulf, these small ships did far more damage to the Japanese fleet than they received.
