- YEAR COMMISSIONED: 1931, by Lt. Gov. T.W. Metcalfe so he could hand down gag government appointments - navy admiralships - to his friends while Gov. Charles Bryan was on vacation.

- SEA FORCE: More than 100,000 personnel, including U.S. presidents, grandparents, queens, military generals, actors, comedians, talk-show hosts, writers, athletes, volunteers - and even animals.

- RANK: All members are admirals. Ranks of captain, commander, ensign or seaman do not exist in Nebraska's navy.

- RECRUITS: Anyone could be named an admiral, as long as he or she has contributed in some way to the state, promoted Nebraska and warranted recognition as determined by the governor.
