Military news…

China is building missile silos left and right, and it has the new Air Force secretary on edge. Former Army officer Frank Kendall warned that the new silos indicate China is developing a “first strike” nuclear weapons capability, which represents a major “destabilizing move,” Kendall warned.

There is a massive 2000-year-old gold treasure missing in Afghanistan and the Taliban is trying to find it. In fact, it’s one of the largest collections of gold in the world, and until recently its existence was known by only a select few.

A married Army officer who allegedly spent years creating an elaborate web of lies to deceive women has been fired following an investigation. Lt. Col. Richard Kane Mansir, a civil affairs officer based in Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, had a “playbook” of lies he he told women, one of them said.

Army Lt. Richard Collins III had just been commissioned as an intelligence officer when he was killed in an apparent hate crime. Now his parents are trying desperately to have him buried in Arlington National Cemetery. But it is an uphill struggle, and all because of a loophole in Army policy.

You wouldn’t think that a big, lumbering C-17 cargo jet could pull off a hair-raising aerial stunt, but one such aircraft just did in Australia. A video posted to Reddit shows a Royal Australian Air Force C-17 flying between skyscrapers in a stunt which looks cool but is incredibly dangerous, according to one U.S. Air Force pilot.

Military news…

Air Force Lt. Col. John “Karl” Marks made history earlier this month for accumulating more flight hours in the legendary A-10 attack plane than any other pilot in history. But hitting that milestone is only the latest achievement for Marks, who began his career busting a record number of Iraqi tanks in Desert Storm.

What else can schools do to create stronger programs for veterans
Universities are beginning to think outside the traditional box, building degree programs that recognize the knowledge military members obtain in the service.

Some people use their day off to watch TV. Others use it to overthrow their government. At least, that’s what Guinean special operations forces being trained by American Green berets did during a down day in the West African country earlier this month. The U.S. has since cut off support to the Guinean armed forces because of the overachievers, according to Pentagon officials.

A Marine sergeant serving with the Navy’s ‘Blue Angels’ flight demo team definitely earned the ‘Angel’ name when he saved three kids from drowning in 2019. Like other service members who found themselves in similar situations, Sgt. Zachary Parsons did not spend time thinking about whether he should dive into the current off the North Carolina shore; he just did it.

Military news…

No, Air Force F-22 fighter pilots are not quitting en masse in protest of the Pentagon’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, as one viral video on Twitter falsely claims, And even if they were, it would not spell doom for Taiwan.

One of the many victims of the 9/11 terror attacks was the post-Cold War myth of American invincibility. Over the course of the past two decades, that myth was further worn away by cheap, hidden IEDs; a forever war and the mental and physical scars it left behind.

My goal was to give the military community something to cheer for.” That’s from Sgt. 1st Class Elizabeth Marks, an Army combat medic who broke a world record while winning the gold medal in the women’s 100m backstroke at the 2020 Paralympic Games last week in Tokyo, Japan. The gold is just the latest in her five-medal collection.
