Going after the CIA again.

Greetings Navy Vets. Hope all is well where you are. Well, it looks like AG Holder is, after all the speculation, going to go ahead and convene a "panel" to question CIA operatives. How do they not see this as a disaster, and a CLEAR win for terrorists. The names, and photos of CIA agents will , of course, make there way to the press, exposing not only the agents, but their families, to danger. How many great big warm fuzzies are we going to give al qieda, and the taliban ? Who remembers when… Continue

The Steeler O Line

I think the Ol ine in general will be a lot better this year. I hope Capizzi continues to develop. That is another great story trying to happen. I think Timmons is gonna be a beast this year.

Health Care Debate, Part 2.

Good Morning fellow Navy Vets, Hope all is well where you are. I was watching the town hall mtg in Montana, ( apparently, I have WAY too much time on my hands) and I wanted to share a thought with you all. A citizen asked President Obama a direct and simple question. How are we going to pay for National Health care, and still not raise taxes. The President thought for a moment, then said " You are absoulutly right. I can't just cover another 47 million people for free". First, I believe this is… Continue

Is National Health Care Constitutional ?

Recently, I was watching a health care reform debate on tv. The debate, between a liberal and conservative,centered on if national health care was constitutional. The liberal pointed to Art.1, sec 8, the "general welfare" clause, as to why this bill was constitutional. The general welfare clause is, and has been manipulated, thru out american history, to pass whatever laws congress wanted. Then it was claimed it was for the general welfare of the American people. The conservative stated that… Continue

Looking for people who might know William (Bill) Havens

My father, William Havens, was in the Navy from 1942 to 1972. He passed away in September of 2000, and I recently acquired pictures of his navy years. One is for No. 4 Company, U S Navy Training school graduating class for Machinist Mate at the University of Minnesota January 11th, 1943. Another is the USS Roanoke and her company, where he was stationed from 1949 to 1952. There are several candid shots with crew members and sailors he was with at the time, covering World War ll and later years.… Continue

Last night i was watching the CBS News and there was a segmant about a marine who lot both of his legs and had other medical issues because of the war in Iraq, the reporter stated that this Vet had to use his own money in order to get decent care, now I know the VA is there for us Vets, but yet it always seems when you go to the clinics or hospitals for treatment they just get you in and get you out.

I know this because I too am seeing a civilian Dr. for my service connected disabilities… Continue

Red Fridays

Red Shirt

If the red shirt thing is new to you, read below how it went for a man...

Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together.

After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home.

No, he responded.

Heading out I asked?

No. I'm escorting… Continue
