Good Day to Remember that Freedom Isn't Free - Memorial Day Salute 2014

memorial day 2010- bill petros - 228   To all service members in all branches of our U.S. armed forces, we thank you for your courage, your strength, and your sacrifices. I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of our U.S. military servicemen and women. I'm sure you've seen a lot of images on the internet stating "Memorial Day is not another BBQ".  Let's take that to heart.  Many men and women have made great sacrifices to ensure our freedom.  They have been uncomfortable so we can be comfortable.  They have endured sleepless nights, no food, little shelter, and risk daily danger to their lives so we can be safe.  Some have made the ultimate sacrifice by saving their friends and fighting for our country. ...

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

Even a world war could not destroy the Christmas spirit!

Christmas Truce of 1914 The first Christmas during World War I, only five months after the outbreak of war in Europe, was bleak, cold, and soldiers did not expect a celebration.  Some had received gifts from home and support from their country in the form of food, tobacco, sweets, and tokens from loved ones.  Thoughts were turned to home and times of peace. Christmas Eve, December 24 1914, an eerie quiet stole over the dangerous front line.  The commonplace sound of hissing, cracking and pops from machine gun fire and artillary, was replaced by German voices drifting over the frozen battlefield, "Stille Nacht. Heilige Nacht. Alles Schlaft, einsam wacht."  The tune was hauntingly unmistakeable to the British troops entrenched close by the enemy line.  "Silent night,  holy night.  All ... Read more

Top 5 Gifts for Troops this Christmas

A Military Christmas According to the USO, the Top 5 Gifts for our Troops this Christmas and holiday season are: 1.  Phone calls home Especially around the holidays, troops deployed across the globe rely on free calls home from USO centers to connect with their family members or just let people back in the States know they're doing OK.  Find out how you can help keep these phone calls free for America's troops during the holidays. 2.  Long-distance bedtime stories The USO’s partnership with United Through Reading’s Military Program allows troops to record themselves reading a book and send that recording to comfort their children back home.
