    Not so positive for USNA. Current mids, can you weigh in?

    :) Good question...I think we were both stunned and bloodied..the first round was generally acceptable boxing technique....the next few were like a street brawl or if I want to flatter myself, we were pioneers on the cutting edge of MMA..:) I believe Coach Cantello was my boxing coach and he...

    Not so positive for USNA. Current mids, can you weigh in?

    MacDonough Hall had “character” 35 years ago! I always found it either ominous or intimidating when I stepped into the boxing ring with all that dried blood on the mat. And after that hour in MacDonough, I usually showed up in my next period Celestial Navigation class with bloody white works and...

    Happy Star of the West Day

    One of the most interesting letters from the war is from U.S. Grant to Lincoln, imploring him to intervene and stop northern textile factory owners from bootlegging cotton and violating the Union embargo of southern cotton.

    Coffee at USNA?

    One of my former squadron mates father was a retired Marine GYSGT and a 3 War (WW2, Korea and Vietnam) veteran. He was one of the “Chosin Few.” Talking with him one time about being at the reservoir, he related to me that the one thing they always wanted was coffee. They were forbidden from...

    BEAT NAVY!!!

    As a USNA grad who has been to many an Army/Navy game, I found this one to be no different than the others. A chance to meet up with old classmates, squadron mates and friends with a 4 hour football game thrown in for good measure. A summary of my typical Army/Navy weekend. Mini class reunion...

    Mattis Erupts Over Niger Inquiry and Army Revisits Who Is to Blame

    Sounds like the typical stuff they try and hang a junior officer for..."failure to adequately train or prepare...etc...." From all accounts I have seen, the men under his command fought with courage and bravery and as one would expect from SF soldiers, they were also extremely resourceful in a...

    Seventeen Years...

    Thanks for the correction...was thinking one thing and typing another. I hate typing on an iPad.... To be totally correct, it was American Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon on 9/11. I believe Bud Flagg and his wife were traveling to Los Angeles for a family wedding. He was a passenger that day...

    Seventeen Years...

    RADM Flagg’s son Marc and I are USNA classmates and good friends. I caught up with him last week in Hawaii for the Navy football game. We smoked a few cigars, had a few drinks and reminisced about the good old days at NAS Miramar. Marc is a man of action and after losing both his parents on...

    Damn, that was funny! You should write for Duffleblog.... I’m sure if there is money to be made, Gladchuk will go for it... Most of us alumni wish he would just ask Notre Dame politely if we could have better seats at our “home” games in places like Jacksonville and San Diego...

    WAITING !

    Unfortunately, after watching the news, the traffic is going to only get worse, especially for those parents staying in hotels out by Annapolis Mall. I hope everyone makes it back okay for the Oath of Office ceremony and swearing in.

    RIMPAC

    Roger that, I wasn't sure of the exact commissioning year, but agree completely.....she was one tough cookie to sink. I believe before they towed her in position for the SINKEX, they opened all the water tight doors and hatches to expedite the process. That was RIMPAC 2014 and I am pretty sure...

    RIMPAC

    I did several RIMPAC's as both a junior and senior officer. The in port phase is fun with a lot of receptions on the various allied ships. Not a lot of in port time once it moves to the execution phase of the exercise. On my last RIMPAC, I worked in the Combined Air Operations Center. Our live...

    Changing services after 5 year commitment

    My oldest son, current USNA MIDN, wore my Plebe shoulder boards last year and happily put on my youngster ones after Herndon. He didn’t want to spend the cash on a new B-Robe and now wears mine in which he says my old Alpha Code in it brings him some “Street Cred”... I still have a towel in my...
