Remember Joshua Boston, the former Marine who wrote a nice Go-Fuck-Yourself letter to Senator Feinstein? He went on Piers Morgan last night and was a much better advocate that Alex Crazy Man Jones. And thankful for his servce as I am, I would venture to guess the last time General McChrystal actually held a weapon in any situation other than training, President Reagan was in office. So.
The Air Force military uniform combinations developed slowly into what is worn today. During this evolution, uniform design changed from one of many devices to a very plain one. The present Air Force uniform with its authorized badges, insignia, and devices is plain, yet distinctive, providing the appearance of a military professional. Wearing the Air Force uniform means carrying on a tradition—one that identifies the person as a member of a historical unit, a close-knit society, quietly assured of his or her competence and professionalism. And per Air Force Instruction 36-2903, male Airmen will center the name tag on but not over the edge of the right pocket, while female Airmen center the name tag on the right side, even with to 1 1/2 inches higher or lower than the first exposed button.
On March 24, 1958 Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army as a private at Fort Chaffee, near Fort Smith, Arkansas. His arrival was a major media event. Hundreds of people descended on Presley as he stepped from the bus; photographers then accompanied him into the base. Presley announced that he was looking forward to his military stint, saying he did not want to be treated any differently from anyone else: "The Army can do anything it wants with me." After training, Presley joined the 3rd Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany, on October 1. Introduced to amphetamines by a sergeant while on maneuvers, he became "practically evangelical about their benefits" — not only for energy, but for "strength" and weight loss, as well — and many of his friends in the outfit joined him in indulging. The Army also introduced Presley to karate, which he studied seriously, later including it in his live performances. Fellow soldiers have attested to Presley's wish to be seen as an able, ordinary soldier, despite his fame, and to his generosity. He donated his Army pay to charity, purchased TV sets for the base, and bought an extra set of fatigues for everyone in his outfit.

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to star in a music video (or at least see the filming in person, Show in the Sky at the Rio comes close. With the glamour, edgy choreography, vocal performances and overall exciting atmosphere, Rio's Show in the Sky is like the upbeat videos you see on TV. Once recognized for its Mardi Gras theme, the Show in the Sky takes an edgier spin. You still get the overhead fantasy floats and bead throwing at the finale but the cast, choreography, song selections and costumes are a lot more risque. Besides being a free show, one of the major perks about Show in the Sky is that you'll never get bored.

Hey Ernie, While a bit melodramatic, a pretty interesting TV documentary of the RAF Vulcan raid on the Falkland Islands during that conflict. At the time, it was the longest ever bombing raid ... which required quite the tanker support - read more about Operation Black Buck at Wikipedia. Pretty wild stuff back in the non-digital era. Alek
A plantain is the common name for herbaceous plants of the genus Musa. The fruit they produce is generally used for cooking, in contrast to the soft, sweet banana (which is sometimes referred to as the dessert banana). There is no formal botanical distinction between bananas and plantains, and the use of either term is based purely on how the fruits are consumed. Plantains are a major food staple in equatorial Africa and Andean regions. Their attractiveness as food is that they fruit all year round, making them a more reliable all-season staple food. In countries located in Central America and the Caribbean, such as Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras and Jamaica, the plantain is either simply fried, boiled or added to a soup.
Artists have always had a reputation for leading the way when it comes to social issues, and today's artists are no exception. Musicians have found a multitude of ways to limit their impact on the globe while bringing an environmental message to millions of people. So many modern performers are lending their talent now to this issue that it cannot be possible to detail all of their amazing work, but here are just a few examples to begin with.
The tibia, or shinbone, is the larger and stronger of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula), and connects the knee with the ankle bones. The tibia is named for the Greek aulos flute, also known as a tibia. It is commonly recognized as the strongest weightbearing bone of the body. In the male, its direction is vertical, and parallel with the bone of the opposite side. In the female, it has a slightly oblique direction downward and laterally, to compensate for the greater obliqueness of the femur.
