Signing off for Shabbat.
THIS… is spirit! THIS… is morale! Am Yisrael chai! (Just read an interesting book that talked about wars – and that, very often, THE determining factor is not weapons, or technology, or numbers, but SPIRIT and MORALE and DETERMINATION.)
Popular Science article.
Go NAVY (which, if I’d joined the service, would have been my branch of choice).
Looking back on my life, the Navy was after me in a big way to get into the nuclear engineering program. As it happens, I knew someone who taught at the nuclear power school in Orlando, FL… and he said “I know you, David. You’d love the technical stuff, but you’d hate the Navy.”
Perhaps, but there are times when I think it would have done me well to have served… and if there were a branch I’d serve in, it’d be the Navy. Certainly if I woke up in my teenage body I’d go through college… and then, yes, I’d go into the nuclear program.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
And Happy Chanukah to my fellow members of The Tribe. Remember, what the tyrants tried to do – as they do in every generation – is to assimilate us, not just enslave us.
“A date which will live in infamy…”
This is my standard video – because it’s KICK ASS.
Go read this story. Holy G-d… could today’s “precious snowflakes” match this? (I doubt it.)
Wounded WW2 Vet Asked to be Left Against a Tree With His Colt .45. When they Found Him…
Yesterday I was slammed, but that’s only an explanation, not a truly valid excuse.
THANK YOU. For what you’ve done, for what you offered, there can be no words that truly express my thanks.
