    While it is hard to see through all the tax bill drama, our federal government is, once again, facing a potential government shutdown on Friday. While we all hope and expect that this disaster will be averted, it is important to understand what can happen when the government shuts down. It’s happened before, as recently as 2013, and there’s no reason to think it won’t happen again. And it can have a direct impact on military families. Please note: very little is written in law. Much of this information comes from understanding what has happened in previous shutdowns and interpretations...

Vice Adm. Thomas Rowden, who heads Naval Surface Force Pacific, will submit his resignation ahead of a formal recommendation that he be relieved of command, according to DefenseNews.com.

    Veteran AF ^ | 1/14/2018 | Prissy Holly
    President Trump has been careful in recent months to properly vet members of his inner- circle after being repeatedly stabbed in the back, but he had no idea that his very own National Security Adviser and top military General, H.R. McMaster has been an Obama plant this entire time. McMaster has been working secretly with Obama for months, even authorizing illegal surveillance on President Trump. Just when we think the level of treachery involving this man couldn’t get any worse, this Obama-era military general has just done something absolutely unbelievable to not only Trump, but our entire country. Anyone with...

    ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s This Week by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave. Stephanopoulos Exploits Death of US Soldier to Take a...

            KEEPING THE FAITH The only survivor of a shipwreck washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was...

    President Donald Trump, as commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces, issued orders last year to strengthen the readiness of the U.S. military. President Trump's order instructed the Departments of Defense (DOD) and Homeland Security (DHS) to strengthen America's military readiness by ending an Obama-era, transgender policy. This policy allowed those who identify as transgender to serve in the military, and provided taxpayer funded sex reassignment surgery and hormone therapy for members of the military. This policy has negatively impacted military readiness, and taxpayer funds necessary to implement this social experiment could be better spent equipping the military. Elaine Donnelly, president...

    Hollowing of fleet from 700 to 270 ships lead to ‘unsustainable levels’ of combat deploymentsThe Navy’s disastrous and deadly 2017, punctuated by a slew of accidents and fatal at-sea collisions ending with the deaths of nearly 20 American sailors, was the culmination of deep-seated issues within the sea service’s budget, operations and culture stretching back decades, issues that Navy leaders are only now attempting to address. And, despite the determination of the Trump White House and defense hawks on Capitol Hill to boost the troubled service’s budget and mission support, the service faces a battleship full of problems coming out...

    Recently, a sailor on the cruiser Shiloh started to behave erratically. He claimed he had the ability to shoot fireballs from his hands and that he had traveled into outer space. Despite his obvious insanity, no action was taken. The sailor, named Peter Mims, then hid aboard his ship, and no one was able to find him for a week. Peter Mims was a troubled sailor who wanted out of the Navy. He had financial problems, his marriage had fallen apart[,] and his chain of command was riding him about qualifications. He'd sought mental health counseling, but was not treated...
