I was goofing off this past weekend and bingo, I came across this. For old Seventh Fleet-West Pac guys this was sort of Heaven and a Bacchic type place! But as we used to say………………….”What happens in Westpac, stays in Westpac!” Las Vegas owes the US Pacific Fleet royalties over that line! And here it is! Out [...]
Since the Centennial of US Naval Aviation is in May. The Navy has been painting some aircraft in period colour schemes. Here are a few for all to enjoy. And I know that Kath loves pretty airplanes! Prowler and Growler. The Prowler is being replaced in Fleet Service by The Growler. It now takes a [...]
A couple of postcards from the era when I went to Boot Camp at RTC, San Diego. These were the barracks for the first four weeks of training. After the 2-4 day, we moved to the mainside. Providing we passed all the stuff. I lived in the closest one on the first deck. For real. [...]

Some people have told me I can be rather difficult to shop for. Most people would love to give me a new firearm for Christmas, but they’d have to worry about shipping it to an FFL if it’s across state lines and then there’s always questions about how to go about buying someone that rare [...]
Now, I’m not the world’s greatest planner – I’ll say that right out front. But then again, nobody ever gave me the responsibility of developing a new fighter/attack jet for the USAF, USMC, USN, and several other nations. Right now, I’ll bet the U.S. Navy is wishing they’d done a bit more planning when it [...]
BREAKING FROM FOX NEWS: BREAKING NEWS — North Korea shot dozens of rounds of artillery onto a populated South Korean island near their disputed western border Tuesday, prompting South Korea to return fire and scramble fighter jets, military officials said. At least one South Korean marine reportedly was killed. The skirmish came amid high tension [...]
Sorry for the delay everyone, but I was just flat worn out Sunday night and yesterday wasn’t the greatest day, either. I managed to get the pictures for this post edited and the panoramas stitched together, and uploaded, but getting them built into the post and captioned took a bit too much time. I finally [...]
It’s that time of year again – Airshow Time Yes, it’s one of the things I look forward to the entire year. I get to have fun with firearms throughout the year, but I only get one weekend a year at Nellis AFB to enjoy the aircraft Before you get to the flight line, [...]
