The Fab Four Balangiga bells are three church bells taken by the United States Army from the town church of Balangiga, Eastern Samar in the Philippines as war booty after reprisals following the Balangiga incident in 1901 during the Philippine Insurrection. One church bell is in the possession of the 9th Infantry Regiment at Camp Red Cloud, their base in South Korea, while two others are on a former base of the 11th Infantry Regiment at F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. At least one of the bells had tolled to signal the surprise attack by the Filipinos while the Americans were eating breakfast. The attack claimed the lives of more than forty soldiers of the US garrison posted in the town. On September 28, 1901, Filipino insurgents from the village of Balangiga ambushed Company C of the 9th U.S. Infantry Regiment, while they were at breakfast, killing an estimated 48 and wounding 22 of the 78 men of the unit including all its commissioned officers: Captain Thomas W. Connell, First Lieutena ...
An interesting picture. The United States Air Force developed the F-15 Eagle to destroy the MIG-25 Foxbat in aerial combat. I bet the U.S. Air Force policymakers of the 1970's did not predict that the United States Army would destroy a MIG-25 with an M-1A Abrahms Tank! LOL.
American Defenders: History of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force & Marines
By THOM SHANKER and HELENE COOPER February 23, 2014 WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel plans to shrink the United States Army to its smallest force since before the World War II buildup and eliminate an entire class of Air Force attack jets in a new spending proposal that officials describe as the first Pentagon budget to aggressively push the military off the war footing adopted after the terror attacks of 2001. The proposal, released on Monday, takes into account the fiscal reality of government austerity and the political reality of a president who pledged to end two costly and exhausting land wars. A result, the officials argue, will be a military capable of defeating any adversary, but too small for protracted foreign occupations. Officials who saw an early draft of the announcement acknowledge that budget cuts will impose greater risk on the Armed Forces if they are again ordered to carry out two large-scale military actions at the same time: Success would take longer, they say, and there ...

Russell Johnson was best known as the Professor on Gilligan's Island. But this is even more important... His Military Career, After high school, in the midst of World War II, Johnson joined the United States Army Air Forces as an aviation cadet and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant. He flew 44 combat missions as a bombardier in Consolidated B-24 Liberator four-engine heavy bombers. While flying as a navigator in a B-24 with the 100th Bombardment Squadron, 42nd Bombardment Group, 13th Air Force, his plane and two other B-24s were shot down over the Philippines in March 1945 during a low level bombing and strafing run against Japanese targets. The planes were hit by intense flak and had to ditch in the waters off the port of Zamboanga. During the ditching, he broke both ankles and the radioman next to him was killed. Johnson earned a Purple Heart for this mission. He was also awarded the Air Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with three service stars, the Philippine Liberation Ribbon with one s ...
ABOARD THE USS LAKE ERIE — Approaching from the Hawaii coast, the mosquito-shaped helicopter buzzed around this guided-missile cruiser twice before swooping toward the landing pad. The Navy crew on the deck crouched, the helmeted faces betraying more than routine concern as the aircraft, flown by a pilot who had never before alighted upon a ship, hovered a foot off the tarmac and then set down with a thud. The sailors’ trepidation was prompted by three words painted in black block letters on the drab olive fuselage: United States Army. The Army, which fights on terra firma, does not usually land its helicopters on ships — the domain of the Navy and the Marine Corps — but these are not usual times in the U.S. military. As the Obama administration winds down the Army-centric war in Afghanistan, Pentagon leaders are seeking to place the Air Force, Navy and Marines in dominant roles to counter threats in the Asia-Pacific region, which they have deemed to be the nation’s next big national security ch ...

U.S. Army Oath of Enlistment I, Rambo, swear to sign away 4 years of my mediocre life to the United States Army because I couldn't score high enough on the ASVAB to get into the Air Force, because I'm not tough enough for the Marines, and the Navy won't take me because I can't swim. I will wear camouflage every day and tuck my trousers in my boots because I can't figure out how to use blousing straps. I promise to wear my uniform 24 hours a day even when I have a date. I will continue to tell myself that I am a fierce killing machine because my Drill Sergeant told me I am, despite the fact that the only action I will ever see is a court-martial for sexual harassment. I acknowledge the fact that I will make E-8 in my first year of service, and vow to maintain that it is because I scored perfect on my PT test. After completion of my sexual...er...I mean Boot Camp, I will attend a different Army school once every other month and return knowing less than I did when I left.

SHARING AN AMUSING LITTLE EXCHANGE: Jacob Baker: And who protects the people from the government? Fair question being that's what the second amendment is all about. 6 hours ago · * Jay Branscomb ~ 1. That's NOT why the 2nd Amendment was written. 2. Your tiny arsenal will not protect you from the full force and power of the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force.

Last week, Vandeventer hosted a Veteran’s Day learning walk with our history classes. The VMS community had the privilege of hosting local Veterans who took time to visit with the students about their past experiences. The students participated in group discussions and learned all about the U.S. Armed Forces. Mr. Vandeventer, United States Army, Mr. Hogan, U.S. Marine Corps, and Mr. Keen, U.S. Air Force, shared moments that will last a lifetime. On Friday, VMS hosted a luncheon for relatives of the student body who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The VMS community honored our Veterans by wearing red, white and blue, and all Vikings showed appreciation and shook the hands of those that have kept us safe and continue to protect our country. We hope this was a memorable day for everyone. Thanks to VMS' PTA for sponsoring the luncheon, VMS' Student Council for decorating the building, and all of the Veterans who joined in our celebration!

Sixty Eight Thousand (68,000) dead United States Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force, and Coast Guard, DEAD. Do you remember them? They did not ask to go. They went because it was their duty. They did not die quick. They had to spend weeks and months waiting for their death. On ships and airplanes they went all the time thinking will I come home. Now today the troops coming home are surfing the same fate as so many Viet Nam Vets do. With one great big question, will my country take care of me now? After I served my country by putting my life in harms way. Oh my great good GOD, why do they forget so soon?
