  • Does anybody have any idea where the Aircraft Carriers..?

    U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt and U.S.S. Ronald Reagan are at this moment in time? How about the Helicopter Landing Assault Carriers U.S.S. Peleliu and U.S.S. Iwo Jima? Know what other navies are presently task forced with them?

  • Why did somebody found this poem offensive? 2 of 2?

    In Screams Aloud… 2 of 2

    A sight to strike me dumb, this vision appears

    In mist it comes and turns to be

    A maiden is she, saying unto me

    “This night you will be free!”

    What’s that you say?

    What is it that comes this day?

    “Thru the empty years and hard felt tears

    I have awaited you

    Thru the chilling nights and times of fright

    I have awaited you”

    “Why do you not know it is life which you fear?

    This thing you do not hold at all dear

    You live in an empty world totally devoid of cheer

    No one to love, any souls or kinsmen who you hold near

    Alone you are, alone you have been

    But this night I shall set you free!”

  • Why did somebody found this poem offensive? 1 of 2?

    In Screams Aloud…

    In screams aloud

    I have awaken unproud

    Lost in the dark

    An unknown fear dwelling in my heart

    Not at all clear this thing which I fear

    Something not at all dear

    Tis’ nothing there at all

    Nothing large nor nothing small

    It is alone that I am and alone I shall be

    No unseen horror from which I must flee

    Nothing save my own foolishness robs me of my rest

    Nothing, but some unseen, unreal pest

    My eyes grow weary of this dim night’s light

    And no longer do I wish to fight

    Or evade sweet sleep’s delight

    I pray with eyes closed tight

    No longer could I linger

    Only to hear the faint distant voice of a singer

    “Thru your empty life and times of strife

    I have awaited you

    Thru the sleepless nights and days of flight

    I have awaited you”

  • If it isn't poetry, then is it prose?

    In Darkness.....

    In darkness I rise

    Moving silently

    Creeping softly

    Slowly one foot before the other

    Listening to the dark

    Gentle breaths in and out

    In darkness I turn

    observing in dim light

    The borders 'tween shadow and light

    The bounders 'tween real and fright

    Nothing here

    And less over there

    In darkness I awake

    How long have I stood

    How long have I paced

    Standing guard in dark

    All my sleep gone to waste

  • How quiet can it be?

    On this quiet Earth

    On this quiet morning

    In this quiet little town

    Along a quiet little road

    Stands a quiet little house

    Alone in her quiet bedroom

    My Lover dreams quietly

    Quietly I sit and drink my coffee

    As I quietly read my mail

    And Kosmo quietly licks his paws

    Quietly I sit and wonder

    If quietly this is as it should be

    And quietly I come to realize

    There is no place I rather be

  • Are there any known examples of the T28/T95 105mm Tank Destroyer anywhere in the United States???

    The 28/T95 was a prototype Tank Destroyer with a 105mm cannon that was in development in 1945. Unlike other U.S. Tank Destroyers of that period, the T28/T95 did not have a turrett having an Assualt Gun type configuration. This vehicle's most interesting feature was that it was double tracked having to outer sponsor units that could be removed from the hull and towed behind the vehicle to travel on narrow roadways. Once clear of built up areas the sponsors could be re-attached and effectively reduced the ground pressure of the vehicle on soft ground footing. Any further information, photographs or illustrations will be greatly appreciated, thank you....
