NOTE: One of my good friends, Jeff, sent this email and picture to me. It is so precious, that I have to share it with all my readers. Enjoy!
In addition to communicating with the local Air Traffic Control facility, all aircraft in the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar (military) a ten minute ‘heads up’ if they will be transiting Iranian airspace.
The following conversation was heard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz. Read more »
Please remember all f our soldiers, both past and present for their service to our country. Today is a day set aside for this noble purpose.
Buglers and trumpeters throughout our country have played, are playing and will play Taps for those who have willingly paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
I have seen many different, heart-touching stories spread about the origin of Taps. Here is the real one from the Arlington National Cemetery web site.

Hasan ignored the fact that we were killing terrorists. The terrorists just happened to be radical Islamic Muslims that vowed to kill the Great Satan America and all of it’s Jewish and Christian citizens. Read more »
On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Malik Hasan walked into Fort Hood. He brought his personal firearm on to the base, which, by the way is not permitted, and opened fire after yelling Allah Akbar. Later investigations showed that the Major had strong resentment (an understatement if there ever was one) against the United States and was very sympathetic (although I call him pathetic) toward the Radical Muslim terrorists.
