    Summary: After nearly two decades of searching, NOAA Ocean Exploration, the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries' Maritime Heritage Program, the U.S. Coast Guard, and a number of academic research partners have located with "reasonable certainty" the final resting place of U.S. Revenue Cutter Bear, 90 miles due south of Cape Sable, Nova Scotia. Having served for nearly 80 years, including in the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service, the U.S. Navy, and as a ship of exploration in the Antarctic, Bear is considered one of the most historically significant ships in U.S. history for its long and meritorious service.

    A Navy report has concluded there were sweeping failures by commanders, crew members, and others that fueled the July 2020 arson fire that destroyed the USS Bonhomme Richard, calling the massive five-day blaze in San Diego preventable and unacceptable. While one sailor has been charged with setting the fire, the more than 400-page report, obtained by The Associated Press, lists three dozen officers and sailors whose failings either directly led to the ship's loss or contributed to it. The findings detailed widespread lapses in training, coordination, communication, fire preparedness, equipment maintenance, and overall command and control. “Although the fire was...

    The “Four C’s: China, Culture, Climate Change, and COVID” are the naval services’ “most pressing” challenges, Carlos Del Toro writes in his first strategic guidance as the Biden administration’s first Navy secretary. But just one of them is the “pacing challenge” that should be the focus of planning and spending. “The People’s Republic of China represents the pacing challenge against which we must plan our warfighting strategies and investments,” Del Toro wrote in his new strategic guidance. “For the first time in at least a generation, we have a strategic competitor who possesses naval capabilities that rival our own, and...

    Social media presence littered with anti-Trump posts, support for BLM. The husband and wife team facing espionage charges after they allegedly tried to sell stolen nuclear secrets to a foreign power have been revealed to be anti-Trump leftists. Imagine my shock. Diana Toebbe and Jonathan Toebbe were charged with violations of the Atomic Energy Act by federal prosecutors after they tried to sell nuclear-powered submarine secrets to someone who they thought was a representative of the unnamed foreign country. In fact, the couple had been talking to an undercover FBI agent all along. “The complaint charges a plot to transmit...

    Guantanamo Naval Base, Cuba – Defense attorneys for the detainee accused of planning the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole have resumed efforts to get more information about the microphones discovered in the Guantanamo Bay detention facility room where they met with their client for more than three years. The government has claimed that the devices, first found by the defense team in mid-2017, were “legacy” microphones no longer in use. This hearing – the first in the case since January 2020 – is dedicated to witness testimony related to the former attorney-client meeting space. Lawyers for Abd al...

    In 1958, the Navy proposed overhauling the Iowa-class ships by removing all of the 16-inch guns and replacing them with anti-aircraft and anti-submarine missiles. The new “guided missile battleships” would also carry four Regulus II cruise missiles, each of which could flatten a city a thousand miles distant with a nuclear warhead more than 100 times as powerful as the bomb used on Hiroshima.

    The Project B tests were held in the Chesapeake Bay in July 1921. Airplanes of the First Brigade sank a captured German destroyer and then a an armored light cruiser. Next was the German battleship Ostfriesland, considered “unsinkable” due to its extensive compartmentalization. After a day of 230- and 600-pound bombs dropped by Marine, Navy, and Army aircraft, the battleship settled three feet by the stern with a five-degree list to port. Ostfriesland, it turned out, was not unsinkable from the air.
