Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day Poster

STRONG AND RESILIENT

Prepared To Meet Any Challenge

Saturday, May 18, 2013


President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.


On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.

The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.

Just Wrong In So Many Ways!!


Copy of email – Received May 7, 2013

PLEASE, circulate this disgraceful behavior, worldwide if you can. The real truth!
Nauseating isn’t it!  Our future is going down the drain unless someone does something quick to
reverse the trend.  How about we quit supporting them and use the money at home???
What a bunch of pig sucking butt wipes. You can see one of the religious leaders in the background encourging these scum sucking bastards. I bet some of these scum will try to come to the US or England later then complain that we are discrimating against them when we try to stop them.
A view of our so-called peaceful Muslim friends who we helped free from persecution from Colonel Gadhafi, this is obviously their way of saying thanks.

See this video whilst it’s available and before it is removed!!!

 



Truth or e-rumor?

The actions in this video speak louder than words. Isn’t there any police? Why don’t the “peaceful” Muslims stand up to these ignorant men that are making all Muslims look like bad evil people and stop or arrest these men? They can’t say they don’t know who they are that did this disgraceful act.

If it was our soldiers doing this to one of their Muslim cemeteries we all know they would be throwing a big cry-baby fit an screaming bloody murder about this outrage!

At least in America and Britain and many other countries we are civilized enough to respect the fact that other faiths exist and we  allow everyone the right to believe in whatever religion they prefer without resorting to violence.

I read that Karzai said the “Prophet Mohammad was the greatest prophet of Islam, a prophet sent to guide mankind, a pacifist and promoter of truth and honesty in the world. In fact, insult to the greatest Prophet of Islam means insult to high values of 1.5 billion Muslims across the world.”

Jordan’s parliament members released a statement saying it rejects “any insult against Islamic belief and religious symbols.” And that “Islam,  has great respect for other monotheistic religions, and it prohibits insult to any prophet or any other religion.”

Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki: Iraq’s leader since 2006 said that people should “refrain from resorting to violence and exercise the principles of Islam and its civilized values.”

If the above statements are true than the so-called Muslims in this video don’t even follow the teachings of their own faith!

What I want to know is what are the 1.5 billion Muslims in the world doing, nothing? Why are they not making it loud and clear to the few twisted evil minded religious leaders who are doing insult against Islamic belief and their Prophet Mohammad’s teachings that their behavior is not acceptable!

If they truly believe Mohammad was sent to guide mankind, that he was a pacifist and promoter of truth and honesty in the world then they need to stand up, and be seen and heard. They need to state taking more action and help in the fight to get rid of the ones who are using the name of Mohammad as an excuse to hate and use violence against others. Because by the inaction of all of the so-called peaceful Muslims they are actually just condoning the actions of these few evil men.

Come on people fight for your own beliefs for heavens sake! Stop letting a few bad apples make the rest of the world continue to believe all Muslims are of the same mind as the men in this video!!

Message from Baker Company

SLEEP LAST NIGHT?

Soldiers Sleeping

Bed a little lumpy…

Toss and turn any….

soldiers in dug outs

Wish the heat was higher…Maybe the a/c Wasn’t on…

Had to go to the john……

Need a drink of water…

Soldier in dust storm

Yes.. It is like that!

Count your blessings, pray for them,

Talk to your Creator

And

The next time when…

The other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,

Or, you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,

Or

you’re served slightly warm food at the restaurant,

Or you’re sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,

Or

the shower runs out of hot water, Think of them…

Protecting your freedom!

-Message from Iraq

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do

Something to pay tribute

To our fallen comrades so since we are part of the only

Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could

Think of doing that is by taking a picture of

Baker Company saying the way we feel.

It would be awesome if you could find a way to share

This with our fellow countrymen.

I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your

Papers to let the world know that

soldiers spell out 911 we remember

‘WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN’

And are proud to serve our country.

Semper Fi 1stSgt Dave Jobe.

The attached photo

was forwarded from one of the last U.S. Marine companies in Iraq

They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the

folks back home know that they remember why they’re there and

that they remember those who’ve been lost…

True or False with question mark

This email is TRUE

What is wrong with this picture?

The picture is of the five nuclear carriers… Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.

This picture was taken the other day in NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013).

The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections.

Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive.

The first time since WWII that five U.S. aircraft carriers were docked together.

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, VA, the world’s largest naval station.

Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid a massive enemy strike on major US forces.

Just Flying Along

There I was, just flying along, enjoying the flight at 20,000 ft., minding my own business.

F15 Jet

And what’s so cool is they actually pay me to do this!

F15

When……Hmmm… What’s that strange sound? Something feels different!

F15 jet

Hey, why am I looking up?

F15

Whoa there. What the hell?? Controls aren’t working.

F15

Time for a mirror check… Hey, where’s the rest of my F-15?

F15

Uh oh, it’s over there… I think I’ve got a definite’……………….

F15
Aw, sh*t’ What the hell is going on here.

F15

I gotta wonder, am I the first guy to ever experience a ‘cockpit-airframe separation anxiety attack‘??

OK, enough is enough!… I’m outta’ here! But first, the canopy has to go.

F15

Phew…………. At least that’s now out of the way……

F15

OK, now it’s my turn. I’m gonna be gone as soon as I find that frickin’ lower handle.

F15

Got it…… I’m gone !!!!!!


This ‘incident’ caused the USAF to ground its fleet of F-15’s.

How about the guy who took these pictures?

 Just when it looks like it’s going to be just another ‘average day at the office’..!

What caused the mid-air break up?

The main “longeron” (stringer) behind the cockpit failed due to corrosion.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time (the photographer)…or the wrong place at the wrong time (the pilot)…..

Makin Island

A true story about 19 marines killed on an island in the South Pacific

Years later, a man who had been a teenager then, remembered where they were buried.

A C130 was sent with an honor guard to recover the deceased.

They discovered all 19 had been buried with their helmets on, rifles in their hands, in perfect condition.

The islanders had really done a wonderful job giving them respect as fallen warriors and heroes.

As they were loading the bodies, a voice from out of nowhere started singing “The Marine Hymn“……….

The voice was from a man who spoke no English but remembered a song the Marines taught him when they landed.

Makin Island……………Semper Fi
