North Korean missiles

I wonder why our Navy don't station ships between Japan and Korea and when The North Koreans launch a rocket, once it is over the sea it doesn't really belong to anyone.  This would be a ideal time…Continue

Does any one remember the YBH? HA!  I use to play music there with the Japanese band.  I was their singer three nights a week.  1952-1955   I was on the LST 825, 1048 and 1158 Eng division EM rate. I have tons of pictures if I could only find them.  Send me a chat mate.  Stay well and God Bless.  Jon r.

That one always worked, and the victim was always mad as hell when he realized what was happening. And then, to look around and see everyone laughing. Toal outrage! Lou

Thousands of planes that were grave yard bound, with costs in the hundreds of millions, now can be used as never before. These F-16 aircraft have been in the bone yard at Davis-Monthan for 15 years and are now being used as drones!

Scary Robotics ......think of all the…

don't know what to add to this story, except that it apparently is true.


For a half a century, the US Navy kept a lid on the details of the

incident that prompted this salutation. A Miami news reporter made the first public disclosure in 1958 after he stumbled upon the truth while covering a reunion of the destroyer's crew. The Pentagon reluctantly and tersely confirmed his story, but only a smattering of newspapers took…
