BAND OF BROTHERS . You may have served in combat or in non-combat. You may have retired from the military -- or you may have served for a short time. You may have been a draftee or a volunteer. You may have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or the Marines -- BUT YOU SERVED. YOU DID YOUR JOB HONORABLY and for that I am PROUD to call you Brother. You may have served during Korea, WWII, Vietnam, the Cold War, Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan -- but you served, you did not run. In fact, many volunteered. You have a DD 214 with those words "HONORABLY DISCHARGED" -- two of the most noble words in the world. Again I am proud to know each and every one of you, past and present. Today is Band of Brothers Day. Send this to all your brothers, fathers, sons, uncles and fellow veterans you know. Happy Brothers' Day! To those veterans who have touched my life -- Here’s to you! I do not consider myself a hero, but I am thankful and proud to have served among them, especially those who did not return a ...
Even the Navy's army gets an air force. Why not an Air Force navy? MT USAF Spy Ship in Persian Gulf
Send in the singers first. After consulting the leaders of the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the LORD and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the LORD; his faithful love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:21 NLT When I was in Vietnam and the combat situation would escalate, we would call for artillery to go ahead of us. Then the chopper gun ships would do their thing. Next the Air Force jets would make their runs and soften up the enemy. If needed a B-52 bomber strike could tenderize an area. All of this went out ahead of the troops on the ground. We saw the same thing in the Persian Gulf War, and again in the War with Iraq. We always use extreme force ahead of the soldiers that have to walk in and do the cleanup. Can you imagine having enough faith in God to send in a praise team first? The enemy is lined up, and the battle lines are drawn, and instead of sending out recon or your crack military warriors first, you send ...
The Amiriyah shelter bombing was an aerial attack that killed more than 408 civilians. on 13 February 1991 during the Persian Gulf War, when anair-raid shelter ("Public Shelter No. 25"), also referred to as the Al Firdos C3 bunker by the U.S. military, in the Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad,Iraq, was destroyed by the U.S. Air Force with twolaser-guided "smart bombs". According to the U.S. military, they targeted Amiriyah because it fit the profile of a military command center; it picked up electronic signals coming from the site, and spy satellites could see a lot of people and vehicles moving in and out of the bunker.The shelter was used in the Iran–Iraq Warand the Persian Gulf War by hundreds of civilians. The United States was responsible for the decision to target the Amiriyah shelter. By its own admission, the U.S. Department of Defense "knew the Ameriyya facility had been used as a civil-defense shelter during the Iran–Iraq War. Changes in the protected status of such a facility require warning ...

Just heard from my step-son in Air Force training down in San Antonio. With all of Obama's BS. The budget cuts caused from the sequestration is forcing him and thousands of others in boot camp to be sent home. Something has got to change. Our government work for us, but yet, we the people suffer. On top of that, Obama keeps giving our tax money and military equipment to all these other countries like Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Gaza Strip even. Sick of our governments crap! Time for our nation to come together under one God!
Freddy Pote and Billy McCue from Hometown, IL were both guys that I knew pretty well. They both were killed in Viet Nam. My uncle Johnny and Luke fought in WW II. My ex-brother-in-law Doug fought in Korea. My brother-in-law Lefty served in the Navy. My son was on the Eisenhower, CVN 69, in the Persian Gulf during Desert Storm. My nephew, Terry did 20 years in the Air Force, (Capt. retired). My future son-in-law (if he ever buys a ring), Bryan did two tours, Sgt. USMC, in Iraq. I look at our country today; I read these posts; I wonder if anyone (including me) understands what they did and at what risk and for what. I wonder. Stupid, benign, flag-waving posts by those of us that never served a day, never will, and won't stand up for America except to post on FB! Am I right?

WASHINGTON REPORT Budget Cuts Uncertainty Leads to Major Navy Deployment Changes Citing concerns on budget cuts and how much operational funding could be eliminated if sequestration happens, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has cancelled deployments of two Navy ships to the Persian Gulf. Plans for the USS Harry S Truman (CVN-75) and the USS Gettysburg (CG-64) to deploy to the Gulf this week were canceled. The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), brought home to Norfolk, Va., from the Gulf in December for the resurfacing of its flight deck and other maintenance, will return to the Gulf later this month and stay until sometime in the summer. The USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) will leave the Gulf and return home after the Eisenhower arrives. Army and Air Force Prepare for Budget Cuts The Army and Air Force are taking similar budget reviews, not only to focus on “potential sequestration actions,” but to work out decisions necessary to meet the possibility of not having a fiscal year 2013 appropriations bill ...
Residents range from WW2 vets to Persian Gulf vets. One female resident here is an Air Force vet of the Vietnam War era.
Ok lets continue the western power game from here, pls watch this June, Israeli surprises floats above our heads, am afraid it could start earlier than we might expect. The threat of Iranian retaliation. The Iranians will very likely be facing not one, not two, but three U.S. aircraft carriers. Two are already in the Persian Gulf: CVN 72 Abraham Lincoln and CVN 70 Carl Vinson. A third, CVN 77 George H.W. Bush, is said to be on its way from Norfolk, Va. Yes, I know President Obama is a noble and saintly man of peace who uses unmanned drones only to assassinate America’s foes in unprecedented numbers after wrestling with his conscience for anything up to ... 10 seconds. But picture these scenes once described by a four-star general. It is 11 p.m. in the White House but 7 a.m. in Israel. The phone rings. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: Mr. President, we have reliable intelligence that the Israeli Air Force is in the air and within an hour of striking suspected nuclear facilities in Iran. POTUS: *** ...
America's most sophisticated stealth jet fighters have been quietly deployed to an allied base less than 200 miles from Iran's mainland, according to an industry report, but the Air Force adamantly denied the jets' presence is a threat to the Middle East nation. (Oh! are we "Dumb *** ) Multiple stealth F-22 Raptors, which have never been combat-tested, are in hangars at the United Arab Emirates' Al Dafra Air Base, just a short hop over the Persian Gulf from Iran's southern border, the trade publication Aviation Week reported. That should send many of the Muslim Scum-bags prostrating on their filthy prayer blankets.
Several U.S. military officials say while it’s not the primary intention, the exercise is meant to be noticed by Syria and Iran especially. The message: even with the United States out of Iraq, and winding up the war in Afghanistan, there is a formidable U.S. presence in the region, and other countries are capable of filling in the gaps. The U.S. Navy already is keeping two aircraft carriers in the next-door Persian Gulf region, and stepping up the presence of minesweepers in those waters. The Air Force has sent half a dozen F-22 fighters to the United Arab Emirates. The Joint Special Operations Command has conducted several deadly drone strikes against al Qaeda in Yemen. But Eager Lion is taking it one step further. Marines will train in southern Jordan on their amphibious landing and warfare skills. But there will also be a number of the most elite U.S. Special Operations troops, training with Jordanian special forces units in counterterrorism and other assault operations.
