    I spent soooooo many years attached to a Navy intel unit as they had the closest SCIF I needed to work in – ended up being their SSO. That bridled a few folks, especially junior officers, but I was DIA trained and DCI certified and no one else would work long and hard hours with the civilian SSO to ensure the regular DIA SCIF certification inspections were passed and that all of those nagging little housework details handling and processing classified information (are you listening, Hillary?) were accomplished.

    I’d get my details from my commands in Colorado or wherever on the classified net and did my work there, also worked with the Navy crews on NEO/NISH missions and the 4th MAW on their missions. In all I was in other-than-Army-controlled units from 1990 thru retirement in 2007. The best was being in a joint command that was hosted by the Air Force, more like being in a resort than the military.

    I enjoyed my time with the Navy and were it not for: (A) my preference to go to war with a service which, were it all to go south, I’d have a better chance of walking home with and (B) the deeply held belief that there’s no way I could go thru the day in a white uniform, I might have switched.

      Being that I was in main propulsion, I think whites were only worn to drink in public during summer months.

        Our guys hated wearing them, some of the COs would make them wear them during the summer as we were in an office environment. I noticed more than a few would skip a lot of food possibilities when they were wearing them.

        Th joint commands run by the AF were pretty loose on what to wear for work. The Navy unit I was with just let me wear the BDUs as I was attached but not assigned but if they were having an ‘event’ I’d wear the Army uniform appropriate to what they were wearing as I had no desire to appear not ion step with the operations.

    We sent to a Mickey D’s today – GGS still can’t get the monkey off his back and I don’t find their Southwest Salad totally objectionable,

    They’ve just opened it after extensive remodeling and what I’ve noticed other than the new equipment having bugs that need to be worked out, is the decreased number of personnel, automation’s taking over. There’s a national pizza chin that’s spearheaded replacing food prep personnel with automation, all driven by the political moves to boost the minimum wage. We have those traditional jobs that students and folks looking to pick up a bit of extra cash were filling now are history. Democrats still don’t understand ‘unintended consequences’ or what business is.

    I’m jes chatty t’night.
    We had a grape-size tumor taken off of BD’s hind leg, Vet says she’ll be fine but he gave us some pain meds she needs. I recognized the med, it’s a slightly weaker version of the one Daisy gets. I cut the daily dose into two parts, one half a tab every 12 hours, and that was a good idea – BD takes one and she’s zombie for eight hours at least. I also have some really powerful compounded arthritis cream my doc prescribed and it kills the pain on her incision within minutes and lasts for about six hours. Between the pill zonking her out and the cream numbing any pain she should be back to her water moccasin hunting self in a week.

    Major Douglas Zembiec gave his life warning his fellow Marines to take cover. 25 men in his unit took cover because of Zembiec’s warning.

    Be a man of principle. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country. Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society. Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and be self-confident. Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle. And take responsibility for your actions. Never forget those that were killed. And never let rest those that killed them.__Major Douglas Zembiec

    Utah judge suspended for criticizing Trump on social media and in court

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/utah-judge-suspended-criticizing-trump-social-media-court-n1010331

    A Utah judge has been suspended for six months without pay after he made a series of critical statements about President Donald Trump online and in his courtroom over the past few years.
    The Utah Supreme Court filed its court ruling this past week on Judge Michael Kwan’s actions.

    Kwan, who has served as a justice court judge in Taylorsville for 20 years, was cited for β€œimproper use of judicial authority and his inappropriate political commentary,” the latter often involving President Trump.

    We are going after the Lefts Brigadier Generals.

    Comey, Clinton, Obama, et al have to be getting mighty nervous.

    This is what winning looks like.

    Mosher said that China β€” the world’s leader in organ transplants β€” has moved to a β€œmore advanced” version of its decades-long practice of executing prisoners for their organs, and is now β€œparalyzing their victim” in order to extract their organs while they are still alive.

    Video: A young Afghan concert pianist has a message for US troops

    Born in a country where music was illegal and the Taliban could arrest you for having an instrument, a young Afghan boy dreamed of becoming a concert pianist. He owes the fulfillment of that dream, he says, to American troops. (Ben Murray / Military Times)

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
