    My grandfather was a veteran who served in multiple wars. I have inherited many of his old medals, pins, etc. and i am trying to identify a pair of cufflinks that i believe may be a military insignia or rank of some kind. Any help identifying the origin/meaning of this symbol would be much appreciated! Also, apologies if this request is posted in the wrong forum.

    thanks in advance.,

    So I have a buddy who is currently stuck at ibolc for Infantry officer training. They smacked him with a diagnosis of moderate asthma that is controlled with an inhaler and allergy meds. He can easily pass his pt test he just has difficulties doing the more taxing distance rucks and longer runs that they love to do. Given his condition doesnt effect his ability to perform normal duties and he wants to change to a less rigorous mos such as intelligence or something silimar. Apparently the CO is not willing to sign for anyone to transfer forcing them to get out if they cant finish infantry. Any advice on steps to take to get a transfer and not tank his career?

    I am looking for any way to contact my dad, who once was in USAF and i would like to ask for a few tips to find him.
    He once served on embassy in europe and he met my mom here, all i got is an old scan of his passport and some documets stating "his name, Lt Col, USAF, Director, Air force Software Acquisition", dating back to years around 2000. I googled some location service website, but they want me to send a letter which is fairly unpractical, since i live so far away. (http://www.afpc.af.mil/Support/Worldwide-Locator/)
    I tried looking in some websites like archives.gov and of course googling his name, but all i can find were some studies he made back in 90´.

    For years, Lockheed Martin has been developing a successor to one of the fastest aircraft the world has ever seen, the SR-71 Blackbird, the Cold War reconnaissance craft that the U.S. Air Force retired almost three decades ago. Lockheed officials have said the hypersonic SR-72 — dubbed the "Son of Blackbird" by one trade journal — could fly by 2030.


    But a rather curious talk last week at an aerospace conference by a Lockheed Skunk Works executive implied that the SR-72 might already exist. Referring to detailed specifics of company design and manufacturing, Jack O'Banion, a Lockheed vice president, said a "digital transformation" arising...

    Hi, all: I'd like to invite everyone to take a look at my son's Eagle Scout project, a documentary about USS Arizona survivor and PBY pilot Lou Conter. Besides the interview with Mr. Conter, the film has historic photos and footage, music, and context commentary. We traveled from California to Pearl Harbor for the 75th anniversary, and the film has footage from the observances, and commentary by other survivors and some general officers. With editing software these days I think it's about as close to TV show-quality as an amateur can get. Available ad-free on You Tube

    Let us know how you like it!
