Middle East Correspondent

Matt Settle provides another report from the Middle east.

Well another week and one less week to go. As I was thinking about what to write this week, I first thought that not much really was going on. On second thought, I went to a concert, found another Christmas gift idea, and had my leg amputated and guts hang out from an explosion (it was a drill). ;-)

The concert was at Camp Arifjan the other day and was quite nice. It consisted of the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Keni Thomas, Al Franken, Leeann Tweeden, The Washington Projects, Mark Wills, and Darryl Worley. All the singers were good. I am not sure I appreciated the Washington Project as much as the younger crowd but I also think the younger crowd didn’t appreciate the country music like I did. One thing is for sure we all RELLY like Leeann Tweeden and the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. J Actually, Leeann and Al Franken did some very funny skits and the cheerleaders came on stage in the Burka (long black robe) before the two removed it to show their outfit. It was a lot of fun just to get out and do something a little different for a change. By the way, BMO is short for Black Moving Object. Anyway, the four of us from the watch section had a great time but then paid the price the next morning after our mid-watch was over. Hey, I guess sleep is over rated. We can all sleep when we are dead. (THIS REPORT CONTINUES UNDER "COMMENT" LINK UNDER THIS POST)

Relive 1952 - Instructional Film for Youth

Here at the intenet film archives you can watch old movies that are lost to time. This one is called A YOUNG MANS FANCY. Historical value, but funny in today's context!!

I have long enjoyed this film and include it as a bonus in some of my short features. IT was part of a govt. morale boosting film project in 1945 and the artist is Ella mae Morse. More about her at http://tinyurl.com/v9j9k. Enjoy!

Asiatic Fleet Remembered

In May of 2006, survivors and veterans of the US Asiatic Fleet met in Asheville to remember their shipmates. This American Fleet had a long history in the waters of the Western Pacific. The Movie "Sand Pebbles" depicts part of their history. A massive and modern Japanese fleet destoyed the Asiatic Fleet and its allies in early 1942. The Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor was unable to come to their aid as planned out in pre-war doctrine. They faught and died with their allies - almost unnoticed by an America that by necessity put its focus on the war in Europe.
