Pack your bags: Pioneer wants 80,000 of us to colonize Mars
Mon Nov 26, 2012
I'm too old... but young enough to dream... and I would go in a heartbeat. To be one of the first Martians, beholden not to Earth but your own planet. The stuff of dreams.

Air Force instructor gets 20-year prison sentence in rape, sex assault scandal
Sat Jul 21, 2012
IF I had been the enlisted member of the board, I would have argued for a much longer sentence AND confinement at hard labor. But 20 years is a long time, and 20 years in some military confinement facilities is long, indeed. The man threw @!$%# on our honor.
Air Force instructor convicted of rape in wide sexual misconduct investigation
Fri Jul 20, 2012
I joined the Air Force in 1973, TIs back then were rough, and there was some sexual innuendo when they discussed female members... it was a different time and a different world.
Somber note: Popular Air National Guard rockers Sidewinder standing down
Mon Jul 16, 2012
Johnny Cash, Spiral Starecase and all the way to Sidewinder, the musicians who cut their teeth in the military have gone on to do great things, musically... some may have been one hit wonders in the civilian world, but for those of us who got to hear them in some places the civilians just wouldn't g …
Women in the infantry? Forget about it, says female Marine officer
Thu Jul 12, 2012
I wouldn't begrudge any patriot the right to fight, but it's a lot harder on the body than those who've never "been there and done that" might think. There is more than sufficient data out there to suggest that women CAN perform well in combat, and indeed, many already have.
High court strikes down Stolen Valor Act
Thu Jun 28, 2012
Damn... NOW they tell me I didn't have to go to Vietnam and spend 20 years in the military to get all of these spiffy medals! Maybe I should just claim to be a doctor... see a few patients on the side for a couple of bucks... or a cop... or an airline pilot.
Secret Service prostitute scandal highlights lack of women in agency
Sat Apr 28, 2012
I can understand the idea that more women in the Secret Service is a good thing. I was around for the period in the military when more women were recruited to make up a larger share of the US military contingent, and I am proud to say that I served with those women.
Vegas rail plan seeks $4.9 billion federal loan
Sun Mar 25, 2012
OK. Train to Las Vegas sounds good, but WHY Victorville or anywhere else just to Vegas. You can now take AMTRAK from Los Angeles Union Station to Kingman, AZ... and you can now take AMTRAK West TO Kingman AZ. But at that point, going to Las Vegas, you take the bus.
Anti-Obama Facebook post tests military rules
Wed Mar 7, 2012
This man took the same oath of enlistment that I did, and is honor-bound to follow that oath. Apparently his honor is conditional. If he cannot honor his oath of enlistment, he has but one option. LEAVE THE MILITARY SERVICE. I don't want a half-hearted soldier to have my back.
