Military Archives - Providing support to those who support us. - providing support to veterans with Combat Stress, PTSD, and TBI Being a hero comes with a price. After watching the "Meet The Warriors" videos, it's given me a renewed respect for our military men and women.  It is an extreme sacrifice for people to serve in the U.S. military and when they return home, they cannot simply leave combat behind and pick up where they left off.  The invisible wounds of war are something that makes returning to civilian life a whole different challenge.  Men and women return home after having seen and experienced horrific things.  These things stay with them and it takes time and compassion for healing. A code of honor.  No one gets left behind. One thing that touched me most (especially Justin's, Josh's, & William's story) was the fact that these ... Read more

U.S. Army Marksmen Vs. the Smart-Rifle

U.S. Military Begins Testing Smart Rifles U.S Military Begins Smart-Rifle Testing TrackingPoint Inc., which is run by military veterans and creator of the Smart-Rifle, has been claiming that their technology can turn any rookie into a seasoned crack shot. The U.S. Military is now testing out that claim.  The U.S. Army has integrated TrackingPoint's scope and trigger-kit technology into their XM2010 Sniper Rifle. Expert Marksmen Vs. Smart Rifle Testing will determine how typical troops perform using the new technology against expert marksmen using traditional sniper rifles. This technology would not necessarily be used by military marksmen nor will it replace them.  The Smart-Rifle would mainly be used by troops that wouldn't have the sniper training but may still need to perform in that capacity. Jason Schauble, Chief executive of TrackingPoint and honored ... Read more

Dear Soldier, my dad was a soldier. He’s in heaven now.

Note To Soldier - Pay It Forward Gold Star Kid 8 year old Myles Eckert has a heart of gold and is a Gold Star Kid.  Myles was only 5 weeks old when his father, Army Sergeant Andy Eckert gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Iraq.  All Myles has of his father is mementos, other people's memories and his imagination. “Because he was a soldier, and soldiers remind me of my dad” On Feb 7, 2014, Myles was entering a local restaurant when he found a treasure.  A 20 dollar bill lying on the ground.  As he entered, his eyes rested upon another man in uniform who reminded him of his dad.  He sat down and wrote a heartfelt note to that soldier as a gift along with the $20.  This ...

Grab a tissue! Navy officer surprises his 7 year old daughter at football game.

These surprise reunions are very touching as families are reunited with their service member heroes. What I'd like us all to remember is the sacrifice that the families make as well as the military men and women who serve. Remember to thank our military service members for their service, dedication to our country, and their sacrifices. God bless and keep our service members and may we have many, many more joyful reunions with them!     Read more

U.S. Navy + Sci-Fi = Laser Weapons

Sometime in 2014, the U.S. Navy has plans to install  the LaWS (Navy Laser Weapon System) on combat ships.  The laser is capable of obliterating small boats and drones, firing warning shots, and blinding spy cameras destroying  their sensors.  Though LaWS hits its targets at the speed of light, the laser will not be as useful for faster moving targets such as incoming missiles and jet fighters, . The LaWS prototype reportedly cost $32 million to build, but the Navy claims the weapon is cost-effective because each shot of directed energy costs less than $1, compared to the hundreds of thousands of dollars it costs to fire a missile. Lasers have the potential to revolutionize the economics and technology of warfare. No longer science-fiction, the ... Read more
