Lots of us with you, Skiv. Our side of the family, we all served. Lots don't get it. Doesn't matter, we all know, and we never forget. We're the ones who get choked up every time we stand for the National Anthem, we are the ones who are angry enough to sign up again after 9/11, even though we wouldn't be accepted back in, and we are the ones who are so disappointed when our current national leadership shows a record breaking lack of balls. I wish for legislation authorizing us to stomp the shit out of anyone burning or walking on our Flag, and would be perfectly happy if it were a prerequisite to have served in order to run for presidency. I wish that we would formally declare war on ISIL, and all non felon vets (that's 99+% of us) were authorized to carry open or concealed automatically, anywhere. We might fix a few things that way.

We all get grey around the edges, and those edges sometimes expand on us a bit. Our eyes don't see the way they once did, and our hearing needs volume control. The stairs and hills seem to get steeper, and the pains we once ignored now seem to claw for our attention. And our memory is jus....I forget.
But we still stand as straight as we can when we hear the National Anthem. We still offer to fight the punk kid burning the flag. We still take pride in our country, and our contributions to her no matter how small or insignificant they may be.
And we were young once, and we know it.
Oh, Lord, please bless us, and help us in these later years. Forgive our youthful indiscretions; even if we commit those indiscretions when we're 50 or 60. Please bless, and help us remember the ones among us who stayed young forever on the battle fields around the world.
And bless the next generation to follow us. May their service to this country be during times of long, lasting peace.

2.10.2013 Marines assigned to Scout Sniper Platoon, Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 3/2, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), and Sailors assigned to the USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), conduct a live-fire exercise while at sea, to practice defending the ship against small boat attacks. The 26th MEU operates continuously across the globe, providing the president and unified combatant commanders with a forward-deployed, sea-based quick reaction force. The MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations.

The Phalanx CIWS advanced radar-controlled gun system provides superior defense against close-in air and surface threats. The Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is a rapid-fire, computer-controlled, radar-guided gun system designed to defeat anti-ship missiles and other close-in air and surface threats. A self-contained package, Phalanx automatically carries out functions usually performed by multiple systems -- including search, detection, threat evaluation, tracking, engagement, and kill assessment. Phalanx Block 1B, the latest upgrade, with its surface mode configuration, augments the proven anti-air warfare capability by adding a forward looking infrared sensor and optimized gun barrels to the Block 1A configuration. It allows Phalanx to be used against littoral warfare threats such as helicopters and high-speed surface threats. Block 1B also adds new control stations with situational awareness that allows operators to visually track and identify targets before engagement. Phalanx is installed on practically all U.S. combatant ships and on those of 22 allied nations. The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System provides the highest level of ship self-defense with extended keep-out range capability. The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System is a spiral development of key attributes of the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System and the Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Guided Weapon System. SeaRAM is designed to extend the inner layer battlespace and enable the ship to effectively engage multiple high-performance, supersonic and subsonic threats. An 11-missile RAM launcher assembly replaces Phalanx's 20mm gun. SeaRAM combines RAM's superior accuracy, extended range and high maneuverability with the Phalanx Block 1B's high resolution search-and-track sensor systems and reliable quick-response capability. SeaRAM is an affordable capability upgrade ---- the above-deck system fits the exact footprint of the Phalanx, uses the same power, and requires minimal shipboard modification.
