CG 26 BELKNAP class

Modern US Navy Guided Missile Cruisers perform primarily in a Battle Force role. These ships are multi-mission (AAW, ASW, ASUW) surface combatants capable of supporting carrier or battleship battle groups, amphibious forces, or of operating independently and as flagships of surface action groups. Due to their extensive combat capability, these ships have been designated as Battle Force Capable (BFC) units.

The primary mission of Belknap-class was to provide anti-air (AAW) and anti-surface (ASUW) defense for aircraft carrier task force


Designed to operate at high speed for extended periods of time in support of long range Battle Group operations, the Belknap-class was fitted with air search radars and a weapons direction system that uses digital computers. This system processed data on air targets and feeds it to the missile fire control and launching systems in order to aim and fire extended range standard missiles at any attacking aircraft or missile.

DESTROYER HISTORY FOUNDATION


Belknap Class


The final DLG class, the Belknap, was an expanded version of the Leahy class with new radar, sonar and dynamic roll stabilization on a 547' hull, 23 feet longer than the Leahys. The design incorporated a hangars and flight deck for the new drone anti-submarine helicopters (DASH) and a single 5-inch/54 caliber gun mounted aft. ASROC were launched by the single Terrier missile battery forward. The Farragut propulsion machinery was retained.

Nine ships were built. Big and beautiful, they were the most seaworthy and successful of the DLGs.










http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-aircraft_warfare

Anti-aircraft warfare

NATO defines air defence as “all measures designed to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of hostile air action.“ They include ground and air based weapon systems, associated sensor systems, command and control arrangements and passive measures. It may be to protect naval, ground and air forces wherever they are. However, for most countries the main effort has tended to be 'homeland defence'. NATO refers to airborne air defence as counter-air and naval air defence as anti-aircraft warfare. Missile defence is an extension of air defence as are initiatives to adapt air defence to the task of intercepting potentially any projectile in flight.


Navy

Smaller boats and ships typically have machine-guns or fast cannons, which can often be deadly to low-flying aircraft if linked to a radar-directed fire-control system radar-controlled cannon for point defence. Some vessels like Aegis cruisers are as much a threat to aircraft as any land-based air defence system. In general, naval vessels should be treated with respect by aircraft, however the reverse is equally true. Carrier battle groups are especially well defended, as not only do they typically consist of many vessels with heavy air defence armament but they are also able to launch fighter jets for combat air patrol overhead to intercept incoming airborne threats.





http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire-control_system

Fire-control system

A fire-control system is a number of components working together, usually a gun data computer, a director, and radar, which is designed to assist a weapon system in hitting its target. It performs the same task as a human gunner firing a weapon, but attempts to do so faster and more accurately.










http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belknap_class_cruiser

Belknap class cruiser

The Belknap class cruiser was a class of single-ended guided missile cruisers


When commissioned, the main armament of the Belknap class was a 5 inch/54-caliber Mk. 42 gun on the quarterdeck and a twin-rail RIM-2 Terrier Mk 10 Missile Launcher on the foredeck. The class used two twin 3"/50 caliber guns for AAW. During the NTU program in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the class had its Terrier systems upgraded to utilize standard missiles, the 3 inch guns were replaced with two Harpoon missile launchers, and two Phalanx CIWS systems were installed.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNIVAC_418


UNIVAC 418

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The UNIVAC 418 was a transistorized, 18-bit word core memory machine made by Sperry Univac. The name came from its 4 microsecond memory cycle time and 18-bit word.


Architecture


Numbers were represented in ones' complement, single and double precision. The TRIM assembly source code used octal numbers as opposed to more common hexadecimal[citation needed] because the 18-bit words are evenly divisible by 3, but not by 4.


UNIVAC 418-II

The first UNIVAC 418-II was delivered in November 1964. It was available with 4,096 to 65,536 (18-bit) words of memory. Memory cycle time was reduced to 2 microseconds. The militarized version was called the UNIVAC 1219 (known as the "Mk 152 Fire Control Computer.") It was part of the Navy's Mk 76 missile fire control system, used to control the AN/SPG-55 radar system.










From 3/30/1959 ( Reginald Rowan Belknap deceased ) To 8/23/2002 is 15852 days

Star Trek: Enterprise

Shuttlepod One

Air Date: 02.13.2002

During a shuttlepod mission, Tucker and Reed are cut off from Enterprise and become convinced the starship has been destroyed and that their days are numbered.

Synopsis

Commander Tucker and Lt. Reed have been on a mission to test the targeting scanners on Shuttlepod 1, requiring them to fly the craft at least 20,000 kilometers from Enterprise. During their trials they experienced an unusual jolt that disabled their sensor array and com system, forcing them to return early to the asteroid field where Enterprise has been engaged in a mapping project. Upon arriving at the rendezvous point, the two men are shocked to find a field of debris on an asteroid's surface, including a hull fragment that is unmistakably a piece of Enterprise.










from my private journal as Kerry Burgess: 01/14/08 8:00 AM
I am not certain which of the scars on my arms, although there aren't many of them, are bullet wounds, and which ones were caused from a power drill the Libyan's used on me in 1986. I am quite certain that scar on my left hand is from a power drill bit and at least one other scar on my right arm might be from a power drill, but it could be from a smaller caliber bullet.

01/14/08 8:02 AM
I have also noted what seems to be a long incision wound on my right hand that is near the scar on the inside of my wrist. For a long time, I thought it was just a scratch that had occured around the time I noted it but the nature of the scar has not changed in a long time and I understand now it is a scar. It looks as though it is the kind of scar a very sharp blade would make.

01/14/08 8:20 AM
from 2/22/1976 to that premiere date has a 1+n+n association with me and 12/24/1968. I am not certain if that was the objective for that episode but I found myself lingering on this association. I have also found that I am still somewhat uncertain about the dates 2/22/1976 and 2/26/1976.

When a tragic accident causes Sisko to vanish before his son's eyes, young Jake begins a life-long obsession to bring him back.

They didn't know I was only on the planet Mars for 3 days. They thought I was going to be there for much longer. Months, perhaps. They didn't know I had such a fast spaceship. I am not certain whether they knew the date I actually landed on the planet Mars and were thinking I wasn't going to land until the same time as Viking 1. I don't know. I am confused slightly about what some people might have thought I was doing out there.

01/14/08 8:27 AM
What I think I was doing was recording all the video of me on the planet Mars and then I was going to play that back in late July 1976 to pass it off as my first landing on the planet.

I would not have been so deceptive but I wanted my son to see it as it happened, or nearly as it happened, but I could not explain how I got to the planet Mars in 80 days.

At least, I think that is how it was going to work. I don't know.

01/14/08 8:32 AM
The only way to explain how I got to the planet Mars in 80 days would mean I would have to explain why I was using a nuclear-pulse propulsion spaceship and that opened up a tremendous amount of other questions.

I am not certain why I could not just explain that I had left Earth before 11/2/1975 so that I could land on the planet Mars on 1/21/1976. I don't know why that was not the cover story. Probably because of other dependancies associated with my mission and how we were explaining certain activity with my mission.

from my private journal as Kerry Burgess: 01/23/08 4:33 PM
These stories about drunk space shuttle astronauts makes me think that was a long-standing joke with me during the Gemini 12 and Apollo space flights. I also think of that scene in "Top Gun" where "Maverick" says he needs a beer to put out the flames and I think that is relevant to 1976. I keep thinking that I had a major fire in my Orion ship on 2/22/1976 and I lated transmitted back to Earth a joke that I was able to put out the fire in my clothes because I had an open beer bottle as I was sitting in the command chair of the Orion ship.

5 of the Worst US Navy Ship Collisions in History

25 Aug 2017 By Under the Radar

BY HAROLD HUTCHISON


November 22, 1975: The USS Belknap (CG 26) collides with the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67)

This collision is notable for the extensive damage the Belknap sustained. During operations in the Ionian Sea, the Belknap and John F. Kennedy collided. A burst pipe sent fuel onto the guided-missile cruiser, and a massive fire melted the Belknap’s aluminum superstructure.

Eight sailors died, and 48 were injured. This collision actually has shaped the ship that is the backbone of the fleet today. After studying the collision and fire, the Navy decided to make the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers out of steel.

Bosnian Serbs, Government OK Cease-Fire : Balkans: Disputes over wording postpone truce a day. Release of prisoners delayed.

December 24, 1994 From Associated Press

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Bosnia's Serbs and the Muslim-led government agreed to a pause in their war beginning today, but the deal fell short of what former U.S. President Jimmy Carter had hoped for.

Fighting appeared to ebb across Bosnia on Friday, and the United Nations reported no civilian casualties. The rebel Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, said his troops will hold their fire unless fired at, even before the weeklong truce begins at noon today (3 a.m. PST), the Bosnian Serb news agency SRNA reported.

Carter left Sarajevo this week after getting both sides to agree to a four-month truce that was supposed to begin Friday. But talks bogged down as Yasushi Akashi, the U.N. chief for the former Yugoslavia, tried to work out details.

The Serbs and the government agreed in principle to a four-month truce, and they were to use the cease-fire starting today to work out the longer truce.

Until a comprehensive, four-month truce is reached, there will be no discussions about an international peace plan that is supposed to be the basis of their talks. The plan would require the Serbs to reduce their holdings in Bosnia to 49% from the 70% they now occupy.

Bosnia's government wants the Serbs to agree to the plan, which the Serbs repeatedly have rejected, before talking about any modifications. The Serbs want to talk without first approving the plan.

Even in agreeing to the brief truce, the two sides refused to sign the same document. Both documents called for the cease-fire, but had different language regarding the release of prisoners and information about missing persons. That meant there would be no quick release of thousands of prisoners of war that Carter said had been agreed to.

Both sides took out a sentence referring to future negotiations on the international peace plan because they could not settle on the wording.

"Semantics sometimes acquires its own momentum and tends to become a monster," said Akashi.

Among the myriad sleeping dreams I tossed and turned through trying to sleep last night was one that stayed with me through the night, seeming to resurface more than once as I tried to sleep. From the perspective of my eyes, I saw myself hit the ground among a large group of people. Then I was butchering them after they attacked me. One after another I killed with it all starting with me seeing a large procession of the enemy and I was screaming "I *am* the stargate!"

Fallen World


Are you injured?

No, uh, noth no, nothing serious.

Go back to your quarters, strap in and stay there.

What happened?

All I know is the ship suddenly decelerated. We pulled massive Gs.

I was taking a nap. I was strapped in my bunk.

You're lucky.

I I won't do anybody any good in my quarters. I'm a trained nurse. I can help with the wounded.

You wanna help? Go find people with broken bones and get them to a med bay.

I I can do more here.

There's nothing you can do for these people, except ease their pain.

What are you talking about? What are Staples and sutures are all most of these injuries need.

Is this your first time in zero G?

Yeah.

Without gravity, wounds can't drain. Blood pools and clots, tissue swells, any internal bleeding is a death sentence. You a chaplain or something?

I'm a civilian, pastor.

You might wanna put in a good word with your boss. This is only gonna get worse.

[Enterprise transporter room]

Captain KIRK: Ellen.

ELLEN: Yes sir.

KIRK: What was the problem down there?

ELLEN: He insisted we go first, sir. Said something about first seeing how it scrambled our molecules.

KIRK: That has a familiar ring, doesn't it? Starfleet, this is Captain Kirk. Beam that officer up now! ...Well, for a man who swore he'd never return to Starfleet.

Dr. McCOY: Just a moment, Captain, sir. I'll explain what happened. Your revered Admiral Nogura invoked a little known, and seldom used, reserve activation clause, ...in simpler language, Captain, they drafted me!

KIRK: They didn't!

McCOY: This was your idea! This was your idea, wasn't it?

KIRK: Bones, there's a 'thing' out there...

McCOY: Why is any object we don't understand always called a 'thing'?

KIRK: ...headed this way. I need you. Dammit Bones, I need you. Badly!

McCOY: Permission to come aboard?

RAND: Permission granted, sir.

McCOY: Well, Jim, I hear Chapel's an MD now. Well, I'm gonna need a top nurse, not a doctor who'll argue every little diagnosis with me. And ...they've probably redesigned the whole sickbay, too. I know engineers. They love to change things.

from my private journal as Kerry Burgess: 10/29/07 4:28 AM


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Richmond_K._Turner_%28CG-20%29

USS Richmond K. Turner (DLG-20 / CG-20) was a Leahy class destroyer leader in the United States Navy. The ship was named for Admiral Richmond K. Turner, who served during World War II.

Commissioned: 13 June 1964










https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond_K._Turner


Richmond K. Turner

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Admiral Richmond Kelly Turner (May 27, 1885 – February 12, 1961), commonly known as Admiral Kelly Turner, served in the United States Navy during World War II, and is best known for commanding the Amphibious Force during the campaign across the Pacific.


Responsibility for Pearl Harbor

As Director of War Plans in Naval Operations, Captain Turner became the Naval Member of the Joint Planning Committee of the Joint Board. Turner and Colonel McNarney Air Corps, US Army wrote "Study of the Immediate Problems concerning Involvement in War" in late December 1940. This led to Plan D, a strong offensive war in the Atlantic and a defensive war in the Pacific. This evolved into US war plan “Rainbow Five”.

On 25 November 1941, Turner drafted a despatch to the Commander in Chief of the Asiatic Fleet for release by the CNO, which contained the words: "I consider it probable that this next Japanese aggression may cause an outbreak of hostilities between the U.S. and Japan." Admiral Stark took this message to the President—who changed the releasor to himself—and softened the judgment words "probable" to "possible" and "may" to "might," and he added the bad guess: "Advance against Thailand seems the most probable."

Kimmel and the Pacific Fleet were highly aware of the threat of surprise Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor. The final and most important warning was sent from Washington and to other Pacific outposts on 27 November 1941. It was specifically designated as a "war warning."

Costello: That's what I said.

Costello: I said I throw the ball to Naturally.

I haven't been over there in years.

But yet there I was earlier today, my hand reaching out towards what seems to be somebody's idea of a deliberate coincidence.

What makes this seem more important than mere coincidence is that I found myself there.

And it makes sense that persons unknown to me would create something about this.

That was an extensive line of thought in my blog for a while.

And as Philip K. Dick is quoted: Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

So I can believe someone did that deliberately.

And important detail in a television series episode I watched for the first time yesterday and that was far from my mind with my activities today has me now thinking about the similarity of a detail that was farthest from my mind as I walked there.

Reminds me of the reason I wanted to go back to publishing on my blog. Going back and piecing together again this stuff is a lot easier with my blog, the way I like to publish it.

JOHANSEN: Even after what happened to Franklin?

BRODY: This is the only way to unlock control of this ship. The code has to be in the data bank somewhere.

YOUNG: Let's forget about Rush for a second. If he wants to kill himself, so be it. How do you know this modification you've made's not gonna backfire and put the whole ship in jeopardy?

BRODY: ... I don't.

WALLACE: How does this new interface work?

BRODY: We created a buffer to slow down the transfer of information. We also limited the connection to a narrow range of the subject's subconscious. That should protect the vast majority of his brain. Now, worst case, we hope only the memories that we targeted could be lost. If it works, the data stored in the ship's computer should be made available to Rush through a dream.

WALLACE: A dream?!

BRODY: A semi-lucid one; sort of a stimulated recall of the memories in question.

WALLACE: How does he wake up?

BRODY: There's a built-in trigger. It should appear to him as a distinctive door. All he has to do is open it and walk through.

NEXT DAY. Nicholas is walking through the grounds of the university, jotting in his notebook. He looks around and stops near a car parked at the roadside. With a California license plate, its registration is 46YYR9P. He jots another note to himself. A man hurries out of the nearby building and trots towards him, and a certain faction of SG-1 fandom squees loudly in delight.

JACKSON: Professor Rush?

(Nicholas continues writing.)

JACKSON: Professor Rush!

(Nicholas finally looks up as Daniel comes closer and offers him his hand.)

RUSH: And then some kid - some big child - with no meaningful education is gonna jump in at the last moment ... (he clicks his fingers angrily) ... and solve it just like that. No sense of ambition; spends most of his time playing ridiculous games, yet he's the genius I'll never be.

Comfort Eagle




I'm pretty sure I've heard this song before.

But what I am certain of is how the title of that song never - until today - registered on my conscious mind. Until just a few minutes ago.

And then I listened to the song and I even grew less certain that I had listened to it before today. Probably have. Just wasn't paying attention to the lyrics. Even now, I spent more time typing this note than listening to the lyrics and now I'm going to go back and listen to it again while trying to avoid distractions.

"Long Line Of Cars"

There's a long line of cars
And they're trying to get through

There's no single explanation
There's no central destination

But this long line of cars
Is trying to get through

And this long line of cars

Is all because of you

You don't wonder where we're going
Or remember where we've been

We've got to keep this traffic
Flowing and accept a little spin

So this long line of cars
will never have an end

And this long line of cars
Keeps coming around the bend

From the streets of Sacramento
To the freeways of L.A.

We've got to keep this fire burning
and accept a little gray

So this long line of cars

Is trying to break free

(drawn out words)
And this long line of cars
Is all because of me
This long line of cars
Long line of cars
Long line of cars
Long line of cars

Star constellations





I wasn't going to write about a dream I just before waking up and getting out of bed but I was later in the shower and I started thinking about a possible explanation for the star pattern I saw in my dream and so I decided to write about that part and to try to write the least about the rest of the dream as I could, which I feel compelled to not write about for no real reason.

The compelling part about the dream is the pattern of stars I saw. The dream seems to have started with me and I was out in the woods somewhere and the light was dark and I had some kind of ability to radiate laser beams from my fingers or somehow create laser beams. As I think more about that as I write this now I thing again that I did not actually see the laser beams but I am vaguely aware that I could see the patterns I created on people with the laser beams. The notion of the laser beam is never really visually established in the dream but that is a notion that is strongly in my mind after waking up. The last thing I seemed to do with my laser beam power was that I saw myself form a pattern of stars on the ground to my left. The power seemed to stop working at that point. I also found my puzzled about how there were five stars in my creation when I expected only four. Since I was wearing those stars on the epaulet on my black jacket then I was thinking of how the United States Marine Corps has never had a five star general officer and I don't think the USMC should ever have a five star general officer.

What I puzzled about was how the pattern of those stars did not seem consistent with how an officer of the United States military would wear a five-star pattern on his uniform. I seemed to be wearing the winter working dress uniform of the United States Navy. What was unusual was how one of the stars was set away from the other four stars.

When I was in the shower and was thinking about that visualization in my mind of those stars that I had created on the ground and then was wearing my shoulder, on the black jacket that is the type United States Navy sailors used to refer to as the "Eisenhower" jacket, I wondered if that pattern was supposed to represent the star constellation we call the Big Dipper.

Ah, yes. That has got to be it. Just now as I wrote that word "Big Dipper" I remember dialog that happened soon later that is consistent with that notion.

So going back to what I was thinking as I decided to write this note, I thought about how my visualization of the star pattern did not match the Big Dipper very well. But then I started to wonder if I was seeing the pattern of the Big Dipper while I was standing on a planet or moon that circled a star that was very distant from our planet Earth.

I keep thinking of reasons why that all could be just a normal dream. But maybe it is not.

After my laser beam power stopped working, I saw some of the people I had been forming laser beam patterns on and they were all getting into cars and leaving in a long procession of army-type vehicles. They all seemed to be from World War 2. I noted the color pattern of one of the vehicles but I cannot think of any comment to make about it.

Then I seemed to be a sentry on a hill in downtown Seattle Washington. I was aware that I was totally alone in my role. I was also aware I was wearing a United States military uniform but I cannot visualize any details about it from the dream. I was there for a long time. Some kind of conflict started among a few local people that had walked up and I was trying to stay out of it. The next part I remember from the dream is that I was sitting in a room and there were people around me and one was the old woman whose dialog is consistent with the notion that I was seeing the star pattern of the Big Dipper constellation. Then a woman stood up and she was also wearing the winter dress uniform of the United States Navy and I saw the postal clerk rating symbol on her uniform. Then I saw a person walk into the room I was in from the room next door with the half-window walls and where I had been aware that a conference was going on that all of us had been waiting for to get finished and that person who walked out of that room was a person that I understood in the dream to by my brother Thomas Reagan and he seemed to be about eight years old. He was also wearing the winter working dress uniform of the United States Navy and I noticed just after I saw the woman's rating symbol that he was also wearing the postal clerk rating symbol. But he had the E-1 rate white symbol patch on one sleeve and the E-2 rate white stripe patch on the other sleeve, which is definitely not a uniform standard of the United States Navy. After thinking about that after waking up I decided that detail is supposed to represent the E-1 and E-2 aircraft of the United States Navy.

As he walked up to me, I asked him where he had been because I have been standing on that hill everyday. There was some unspoken dialog about me having food during that time.

There was some other stuff that happened in the dream but I decided to end this note with his response to me about how he had heard I had picked up more stars. I distinctly remember his words to me at that point. He asked me "Is it worth it?"

At that point, I took off two stars from the jacket epaulet on my shoulder, which seemed to be the type used for award stars on United States military medals and ribbons, and I was aware that left me with three stars on my shoulder.

So as I was wondering after getting out of the shower is that I could have just had a normal dream. But I could have just dreamed that final star symbol I need.

I remember so clearly an extensive line of thought yesterday when I was bicycling to Coeur d'Alene.

An extensive line of thought that I remember my mind churning over as I pedaled into the Post Falls area.

At some point before that the line of thought formed in my mind about a medical doctor contacting me regarding my current mental condition.

All these years not one person has asked me anything even slightly intelligent about the stuff I describe publicly.

Yesterday my imagination conjured up that medical doctor contacting me and then arranging me to travel to an office where I was interviewed about my condition.

The medical doctor, a psychiatrist, I guess, spoke a series of words to me.

In that extensive line of thought, I heard those spoken words and then my immediately response was to begin speaking out loud the punch line to a joke.

Then I began to suddenly understand I was seeing a completely different person than the person I had been telling that joke to.

For me, the date had been March 17, 1994, I was imagining yesterday as I pedaled along, and then suddenly I found myself in the year 2018.

There's a lot more detail than I can articulate here in words so there's not much point in trying.

There was a sudden transformation. A transformation in my mind.

The Kerry Burgess I am today was gone. The person I became was from March 17, 1994.

I noticed my hands. I felt my face.

I told that doctor I was just talking to a different person.

The doctor asked me who that person was.

I responded he is a person we don't speak openly of.

We both agreed my name was Kerry Burgess.

I spoke something about a theory of compartmentalizing my mind because of the multiple lives I was required to live in my lawful and legitimate activities.

There was more dialog.

They kept me there in that facility for 3 days and then let me leave to come back to Spokane.

That was in New York City.

I called a person on the phone that only the version of Kerry Burgess of 1994 would know how to contact.

She and her husband met me in a restaurant before my flight left to Spokane, which I had been able to reschedule to about 11:30 PM that night.

Oh, yeah. She told me that speaking openly about him now was OK. Because of What I Had Done.

There's more after that.

What this makes me think of is thoughts I've had in the past that I don't think I have ever written about. I'm pretty sure I've never published anywhere those thoughts. Maybe I did but I don't know. One detail in that scene made me pause the video and make this note.

Those first 3 episodes of season 4 first broadcast on television last Friday, the 15th, but I didn't know anything about them and I didn't start watching them until today.

And consistently the thoughts in my mind are always - ALWAYS - that I am still here now because of a promise I made.

The American Presidency Project

George Bush

XLI President of the United States: 1989 - 1993

Proclamation 6298—National Desert Storm Reservists Day, 1991

May 21, 1991

By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

On this occasion we gratefully salute the members of the National Guard and Reserve forces of the United States -- dedicated and highly trained men and women who played a major role in the success of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Whether they served directly in the Persian Gulf or on military bases in the United States and elsewhere around the world, as members of our Nation's Total Force, these National Guardsmen and reservists made a vital contribution toward the liberation of Kuwait.

During the course of the war in the Persian Gulf, more than 228,000 members of the Ready Reserve were ordered to active duty. Thousands more volunteered in advance of being called to support the coalition effort. Members of the Army National Guard, the Army Reserve, the Naval Reserve, the Marine Corps Reserve, the Air National Guard, the Air Force Reserve, and the Coast Guard Reserve -- these men and women were trained and ready to do their jobs. As they have done for all conflicts since colonial times, guardsmen and reservists responded quickly to the call. They promptly assumed a variety of combat missions such as armor, artillery, tactical fighter, tactical reconnaissance, and minesweeping. Their support missions included transportation, medical, airlift, service/supply, civil affairs, intelligence, military police, and communications.

When called to active duty, members of the Ready Reserve were suddenly required to leave behind their families and their careers. As we thank our Desert Storm reservists for the many sacrifices that they have made in behalf of our country, it is fitting that we also honor their loved ones. They too have shown the extraordinary degree of patriotism and courage that we have come to expect of the Nation's military families. National Guard and Reserve units worked in close cooperation with the Active Services to develop a broad-based family support network to assist these new military dependents.

The Nation's employers, educators, and other institutions throughout the private sector have provided strong support and assistance to their reservist employees and students who were called to duty on short notice. The National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a 4,000-member network of business and civic leader volunteers, has put forth special efforts to help guardsmen and reservists, as well as their employers, to understand their job rights and responsibilities.

In recognition of their vital role in the liberation of Kuwait, the Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 134, has designated May 22, 1991, as "National Desert Storm Reservists Day" and has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this day.

Now, Therefore, I, George Bush, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 22, 1991, as National Desert Storm Reservists Day. I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities in honor of the courageous men and women of the United States Ready Reserve.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fifteenth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stolen_Valor_Act_of_2005

The Stolen Valor Act of 2005 (the Act), signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 20, 2006,[1] is a U.S. law that broadens the provisions of previous U.S. law addressing the unauthorized wearing, manufacture or selling of military decorations and medals. It is a federal offense which carries a punishment of prison time and/or a fine; the scope previously covered only the Medal of Honor.

The Act was first introduced into the United States Congress's House of Representatives on July 19, 2005 by Representative John Salazar, a Democrat from Colorado, as H.R. 3352.[2][3] It was introduced into the Senate by Senator Kent Conrad, a Democrat from North Dakota, on November 10, 2005 as S. 1998.[4][5] The Senate version was passed unanimously on September 7, 2006.[5][6] The Senate version then went to the same House Judiciary Committee that held the House version. The Act briefly stalled, but the House subsequently passed the Senate version, S. 1998, on December 6, 2006.[7]

The purpose of the Act is to strengthen the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 704 by broadening its scope and strengthening penalties. Specific new provisions in the Act include: granting more authority to Federal law enforcement officers, extending scope beyond the Medal of Honor, broadening the law to cover false claims whereas previously an overt act had to be committed, covering mailing and shipping of medals, and protecting the reputation and meaning of military heroism medals.[3][5]

The need for the Act came about because of large numbers of fake military heroes in the United States. For example, as of June 2, 2006 there were only 120 living Medal of Honor recipients, but there were far more known imposters.[8][9][10] There are also large numbers of fake Navy SEALS[11][12] and Army Special Forces,[13] among others.

The Orders and Medals Society of America (OMSA), an organization of collectors, had opposed the bill in its current form. OMSA is of the opinion that the changes to 18 U.S.C. § 704 included wording that implied that any movement or exchange of medals would be illegal

This Day in History: Muhammad Ali loses title

June 20, 1967: Muhammad Ali convicted of draft evasion, stripped of heavyweight title.

‘Shoot them for what?’ How Muhammad Ali won his greatest fight

By DeNeen L. Brown

June 16

A little before 8 a.m. on April 28, 1967, Muhammad Ali arrived at the Armed Forces Induction Center in Houston.

The Vietnam War was raging, American soldiers were dying by the hundreds, protesters were burning draft cards and conscientious objectors were fleeing to Canada.

Ali had no intention of fleeing to Canada, but he also had no intention of serving in the Army.

“My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America,” he had explained two years earlier. “And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. … Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.”

Instead the heavyweight champion emerged from a cab in a metallic blue silk suit. Reporters surrounded him. Ali was a magnificent, walking quote machine, often speaking in rhyme and famously antagonizing his opponents with eerily precise predictions of the round in which he would eventually defeat them.

“This is the legend of Cassius Clay, the most beautiful fighter in the world today,” Ali had announced before his title match in 1964. “The brash young boxer is something to see, and the heavyweight championship is his destiny.”

Now renowned sportscaster Howard Cosell thrust a microphone before Ali, demanding to know what he would do. Cosell prodded the boxer, “Your action will be registered in two hours.”

As cameras flashed, Ali smiled and said, “No comment.”

Inside the induction center in Houston, Ali, a Muslim convert, refused to step forward when the name he’d been given at birth — Cassius Clay — was called.

The fight of Ali’s life was underway, one that he would win and would render President Trump’s offer of a pardon last week as merely symbolic.

[Why Trump would pardon Muhammad Ali, even though he hates NFL political protests]

A senior officer pulled Ali out of line, took him to an office at the center and asked whether he understood “the gravity of the act,” according to Ali’s autobiography, “The Greatest: My Own Story.”

Ali replied, of course he understood. The officer ushered Ali out and once again a lieutenant called his name: “Mr. Cassius Clay, you will please step forward and be inducted into the United States Army.”

Ali refused to budge. Minutes later, Ali appeared outside the induction center and handed out a statement:

“It is in the light of my consciousness as a Muslim minister and my own personal convictions that I take my stand in rejecting the call to be inducted. … I find I cannot be true to my beliefs in my religion by accepting such a call. I am dependent upon Allah as the final judge of those actions brought about by my own conscience.”

Later that day, Ali was stripped of his boxing license.

“When I fly out of Houston,” Ali wrote in his autobiography, “I’m flying into an exile that will eat up what boxing experts regard as ‘the best years of a fighter’s life.’ ”

On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted by a Houston jury of a felony charge of violating the Universal Military Training and Service Act. According to a New York Times report, federal District Judge Joe E. Ingraham sentenced Clay to five years in prison and fined him $10,000.

The judge announced the sentence immediately, granting Ali’s request not to wait.

“I’d appreciate it,” the 25-year-old boxer said, according to the Times, “if the court will do it now, give me my sentence now, instead of waiting and stalling for time.”

Banned from boxing, he and his attorneys would spend the next four years appealing that verdict. As the Vietnam War became increasingly unpopular, Ali made speeches on university campuses, becoming an antiwar and civil rights hero.

“It has been said that I have two alternatives,” Ali told a crowd of college antiwar protesters. “Either go to jail or go to the army. But I would like to say that there is another alternative. And that alternative, that alternative is justice. And if justice prevails, I will neither go to the army, nor will I go to jail.”

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. praised Ali’s decision to become a conscientious objector.

“I’ve talked with him about it,” King said in a televised interview. “I think he is absolutely sincere. … It is legally justified to be a conscientious objector … I would strongly endorse his actions on the basis of conscience … I would not dare stand in the way of one who has taken a position because of moral conscience.”

Ali’s boxing license was restored in 1970. “After two tuneup fights, the 29-year-old boxer sought to regain his heavyweight title from the new champion, Joe Frazier, in a highly touted fight at New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 8, 1971,” according to a Washington Post report.

“Each boxer was guaranteed at least $2.5 million, the highest payday for any athlete up to that time. Frazier knocked Ali down in the 15th and final round and won the fight by unanimous decision. Afterward, both fighters were treated at hospitals.”

In 1971, in what some considered a surprise decision, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturned Ali’s conviction.

What happened inside the court on that decision was almost as dramatic as watching Ali box.

According to the book “The Brethren,” by Post reporter Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong, the justices met in a secret conference on Friday, April 23, 1971 — with Justice Thurgood Marshall taking himself out of the case because he had been solicitor general when the case began. The justices decided in a 5-to-3 vote that Ali was not a conscientious objector and made the decision to send him to prison.

Chief Justice Warren Burger had assigned Justice John Harlan to write the majority opinion, according to the book. Harlan’s clerk began drafting the opinion and “was persuaded by another clerk who had read Alex Haley’s ‘Autobiography of Malcolm X’ to reconsider the question of Ali’s opposition to war.”

Harlan’s clerk became convinced that Ali really was opposed to all wars and was indeed a true conscientious objector. The clerk convinced Justice Harlan to reconsider the case.

That night, a reluctant Harlan took home papers and reexamined the case. The next morning, Harlan announced he was convinced the government had painted “Ali as a racist, misinterpreting the doctrine of the Black Muslims despite the Justice Department’s own hearing examiner’s finding that Ali was sincerely opposed to all wars,” according to “The Brethren.”

Harlan found that the Justice Department had committed an error and wrote a memo suggesting the court reverse the conviction. “When his memo suggesting reversal of the conviction was circulated, it exploded in the Court,” according to “The Brethren.” The stakes were high: If the other justices refused, Ali would be heading for prison for draft evasion.

Justice Potter Stewart suggested that the Court simply set Ali free, citing a technical error by the Justice Department. Eventually, all justices, including Chief Justice Burger, agreed to overturn the conviction. The unanimous decision was announced on June 28, 1971.

When Ali heard the news, he was in Chicago, according to news reports.

“I thank Allah. And I thank the Supreme Court for recognizing the sincerity of the religious teachings that I’ve accepted,” said Ali, who died June 3, 2016.

Ali, according to the book, “did not know how close he had come to going to jail.”

In January 1974, Ali defeated Frazier. Then challenged George Foreman, the reigning heavy weight champion, in a match that would come to be called the “Rumble in the Jungle” because it was held in Zaire, now the Congo.

In the eighth round, Ali landed a right hand to Foreman’s chin, and sending Foreman to the canvas.

“Mr. Ali’s knockout victory was considered almost miraculous and took on symbolic importance because it took place on African soil,” according to The Post. “It had been more than 10 years since Mr. Ali first won the title, and seven years since he relinquished it. When he reclaimed the heavyweight championship in such dramatic fashion, many observers considered it one of the most remarkable displays of endurance and boxing skill in history.”

Air Date: January 28, 1997

NARRATOR: Before the planes could attack, Task Force Normandy would fire the first shots of the war. Its Apache gunships had been training for months. Their mission was vital: to destroy at all costs two Iraqi radar sites that would otherwise give Baghdad an early warning of what was to come.

[1:00 A.M., January 17, 1991] It was a moonless night. Eight Apaches armed with Hellfire missiles took off towards Iraq. This is a pilot's eye view, videotape from one helicopter's night vision camera. The gunships flew just a few feet off the desert until they were eight miles from the radar dishes.

Lt. TOM DREW, Task Force Normandy: We slowed our air speed to about 40 knots, came up on line, all abreast, so we're all the same distance from the target. And at this point, I'm not looking through my goggles. I'm looking at a T.V. screen right in front of me. Watched the clock tick to zero and I gave the code word "Get some." At that point, everybody fired their Hellfires.

"The sale of AWACS and other air defense equipment to Saudi Arabia would make a substantial contribution to the national security interests of the United States in a vital part of the world. The rejection of this sale would damage the ability of the United States to conduct a credible and effective foreign policy, not only in the Gulf region, but across a broad range of issues."

I want to thank each one of these gentlemen who are here for their recognition that this sale is in the national security interests of the Nation. Their public appearance at this time is an indication of the broad bipartisan support this sale has among knowledgeable former national security officials from both Republican and Democratic administrations, going all the way back to the Eisenhower administration.

And we believe, as I've said before, that not only is what we're talking about in the interest of our national security, but it is in the best interests of the national security of our friend and ally, Israel.
Now, Henry. Dr. Kissinger.

Dr. Kissinger. Mr. President, I'm aware of the intense debate that is going on on this issue, and I can sympathize with many of the concerns that have been expressed. It is my strong conviction, however, that these concerns cannot be met by rejecting the sale of AWACS. I believe the sale is in the national interests of the United States; it is compatible with the security of Israel; it is essential for the peace process in the Middle East; and it is important for the President's ability to conduct an effective and credible foreign policy. And so, I would urge those who have legitimate concerns to meet them in conversation with the administration, and to vote for the AWACS package without attaching conditions that are incompatible with the dignity of Saudi Arabia and with the effective conduct of our foreign policy.

The President. Thank you very much. And now, former Secretary Brown.

Mr. Brown. Thank you, Mr. President. I believe that American national security depends very strongly on the preservation of peace and of a favorable situation in Southwest Asia. One can understand the arguments that well-meaning opponents of the AWACS transfer make. I believe that when these are weighed against the advantages that this sale brings to U.S. national security, that the conclusion is that it would not help U.S. security, it would not help Israeli security, to have this sale rejected.

I think that both from a military point of view and from a diplomatic point of view the transfer is advantageous to the United States—from a military point of view in terms of the ability it gives us to have information on air movements in the area, and from a diplomatic point of view because the United States needs, if it is to continue to contribute to the peace process, to have close relations with Israel, with Saudi Arabia, and with other countries in the region. I think that would be severely damaged if this sale were overturned.

I hope that the Members of Congress who are going to consider this matter take into full consideration these facets of the issue. And when they do, I believe that they should come out in favor. Thank you.

The President. Well, this concludes, but I think you can all see that there's a who's who roster here of men who have served this country over a great many years and have proven today they continue to serve any time they're needed.

And on behalf of all the people of this country, I just want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you for being here today and doing this. Thank you very much.

Note: The President spoke at 1:10 p.m. at the North Portico of the White House.

Suddenly, the lights began to go off. One of the pilots mused, "I think they know we are here." Thirty seconds prior, the Apache crews turned on their ranging lasers. At exactly 2:37:50 AM, White Team Apache pilot 2d Lt. Tom Drew keyed his radio and broadcast, "Party in ten." Precisely ten seconds later all crews began firing their Hellfire missiles. Twenty seconds later, the deadly weapons began to detonate against the structures. The generators were hit first, then the command bunkers, and finally, the radar dishes themselves. Several Iraqi enemy soldiers died in the barrage.

Once all the Hellfires had been expended, the helicopters flew toward the sites and ripple-fired their rockets. Two thousand meters from the sites, they opened up with their 30 mm chain guns and riddled what remained of the compounds with every bullet they had. Four minutes after it started, it was over. The Apaches had expended twenty-seven Hellfire missiles, 100 Hydra-70 rockets, and 4,000 rounds of 30 mm cannon fire. They turned south, rejoined with the Pave Lows, and headed home. En route, Captain Martin's crew observed what appeared to be the launch of two SA-7 missiles. They utilized their on-board defensive systems and some aggressive maneuvering to escape the missiles.

from my private journal as Kerry Burgess: 05/14/07 9:12 AM

but I think what this all represents is me flying into Iraq, running out of fuel because I engaged enemy fighters, and then having to land and find fuel. I also found myself reading that book by Claire and having a hard time to believe we didn't get swarmed by enemy fighters.
