This is such a good story all around. Captain Phillips was already a hero for putting his life up against his ship and crew and then what a job by the Navy!

Score a big one for the good guys!

Yes, I am so grateful that he is alive and well. It's nice to have a happy ending once in a while

A shining moment for our Navy...
who displayed great restraint for as long as can be reasonably expected, then acted with incrediable skill to complete their mission.
It's too bad the pirates didn't opt for peaceful resolution when they had the chance...
