"Tim, No, I don't have access to any of my uncle's things. I wish I did, but his children probably do if he had anything from his time in service. My family is spread out across the country and we lost track of each other. I do have much of…"

"Unfortunately, my uncle passed away as a result of a WWII injury 20 years ago. He also served on the USS Bunker Hill and Wasp. I believe he was on the Admirals staff and kept following the "flag". By the way, I am afraid I lost my cool…"

"This is the problem Tim. The government is broken, legislative and executive processes are broken, or mis-applied. The unitary executive theorists believe that the president can usurp the courts and congress. Once Pres. Bush penned executive orders…"

"Extreme Islam is a huge problem because it allows those who feel overwhelmed by modernity a way of striking back, to fall back to long past ideas to feel safe and make sense in their isolated lives. But the basic tenents of Islam, the normative…"

"And as veterans we all should be pleased with President Obama's increased VA budget and the new VA Secretary, Gen. Eric K. Shinseki. As a user of VA benefits at the Memphis VA, I've seen improvements and added medical personnel already.…"

Kristine Lilja-King replied to Douglas Karr's discussion US Navy 2009
"I don't believe the Navy or any branch of the military need worry about presidential support. President Obama has (DOD) Secretary Gates, (DNI) Admiral Blair, (NSA) General James Jones, and (Chairman JC) Admiral Mullen, all solid military men as…"
