    MILITARY UPDATE: VA Asks Hill Not To Open ‘Floodgates’ to Private Care.The ambitious push by Congress and its veteran affairs committees to swiftly solve a health care wait-time crisis for tens of thousands of veterans by granting access to private sector care appears to have run hard aground. After four weeks, House-Senate conferees, working through their staffs to iron out differences in separate veteran health reform bills, need some major breakthroughs, according to lawmakers and staff. “I am very concerned that this conference committee will end up taking a step backward for veterans’ health care in this country,” said Sen....

    Charlie Crist Republican Richard DeNapoli has really stepped in it this time. The former Democrat and Broward County GOP boss lied to Broward Republican voters in 2010 when he stated in a letter that he had served in the United States Marine Corps. DeNapoli was running for Treasurer of the Broward GOP, and one night before the group’s monthly meeting, DeNapoli was confronted about lying about his military service. DeNapoli’s lie was spelled out on a candidacy letter he was distributing on all of the chairs that were already put out for the event. When asked about why he stated

    The Independent Journal Review ^ | July 20, 2014 | Mike Miller
    While enlistment rates in the U.S. military vary by group, they also vary by state. Enlistment ranges from less than 3 per thousand in North Dakota to more than 7 per thousand in Florida and Maine. According to the Defense Department, differences exist at the regional level as well. In 2013, 44% of all military recruits came from the South, despite it having only 36% of the country’s 18-24 year-old civilian population. By contrast, the Northeast was the most underrepresented region of the country; only 14% of new enlistments came from this area, compared to 18% of its 18-24 year-old...

    A program that allows veterans with traumatic brain injuries to receive treatment in assisted living facilities is in danger of closing down. With only two weeks to go before the August recess, Congress has yet to take action on legislation that would renew the pilot program before it expires on Sept. 30. Ralph Ibson, the national policy director for the Wounded Warrior Project, said it would be a “sad irony for Congress to fail to include in an access to care package, a critically needed access to care piece that will soon expire.” The VA started turning away applicants to...

          NEVER ENOUGH TIME While I have only been an occasional visitor to Washington, I was struck by one scene so strongly that it remains as somewhat of a reference. My first view "up close and personal" of the Pentagon was neither awe-inspiring nor intimidating. To be sure, I was impressed with the size of the building, but that was about it. What came upon me, and has stayed with me, is the image of an ant farm. An enormous one, surely, but an ant farm nonetheless. So many passageways with so many ants constantly traveling them...seemingly...

  • On this Day in 1962: Infantry Nuke Test

    WeaponsMan blog ^ | July 17, 2014
    The USA fired its last above-ground nuclear test at a test site in Nevada on this day, 17 July, in 1962. The operation was a culmination exercise that brought together nuclear warhead tests (code-named Little Feller, as a nod to the W54 warhead’s light weight and low yield) and nuclear weapons employment maneuvers code-named Ivy Flats. The test was a pretty-much full-spectrum test of an actual tactical nuke, and a very unusual one — a nuclear infantry weapon called the Davy Crockett. A lot of tripe is written about the Davy Crockett, including that it could not fire a projectile...

    A Ukrainian security spokesman has accused Russia's air force of shooting down one of its jets while it was on a mission over Ukrainian territory. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council, said an Su-25 ground attack plane was downed on Wednesday evening. Amateur video posted on Wednesday is said to show a plane being hit over Ukraine's eastern region of Luhansk. The rebels say they shot down two Su-25 jets on Wednesday. They were downed during fighting at the Marinivka border crossing, according to rebel commander Igor "Strelkov" Girkin. So far there has been no...

Young men are streaming to Syria and Iraq from all over the world to join the cause. And they come not just from the Muslim world, but also from England, France, Sweden, Australia, and the U.S.Perhaps hoping to put a dent in the appeal of ISIS, some Western newspapers have made much of the expensive stolen watch visible on the wrist of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during his first public appearance at the Grand Mosque in Mosul.

That’s the claim in the best-selling war memoir “American Sniper” by the deceased author Chris Kyle. It’s about to be made into a movie. But the bar fight is a claim Ventura says never happened. For the last two days, Navy SEALs have claimed in court that they saw one part or another of the bar fight. Ventura, described in the book as “scruff face,” is accused of shooting off his mouth about the war and...

    The U.S. military does not fully reflect the demography of the United States, at least not in terms of the places American service members hail from. According to data from the Census Bureau's 2013 population estimates and the Department of Defense, young adults from some states are more likely to enlist in the military. As the above map demonstrates people between the ages of 18 and 24 from Florida, Georgia, or Maine, are more likely to join the armed forces than their counterparts in lower enlistment-rate states like North Dakota or Utah.

    In a callous and unreasonable act of complete disregard for our military, Obama’s Defense Department has sent pink slips to military officers serving on the battlefield in Afghanistan. This reminds one of the treatment of victims of Nadal Hassan in Ft. Hood, but it gets even more intriguing. While this is going on, the Pentagon and the military are looking to keep and employ more Muslims. According to a report by the World Tribune, officials said the ‘Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims so they can encourage their presence and continued advancement in the military.’

          MOVING BEYOND CAPE BOJADOR The early Portuguese explorers believed that the oceans were impassable below Cape Bojador, a point on the West African coast. When sailors set aside their fears and moved past Cape Bojador, they found that their fears were groundless, that their limitations were imaginary. We all have our own Cape Bojador. We fear things that we need not fear. We draw boundaries around areas of our lives and decide that we can't go past them.

    No, the United States isn’t trying to build a military force of centenarians.
