5 Questions: Lt. Daniel Chung

Posted December 20, 2012 by

1.) What services do chaplains offer to military personnel? We offer spiritual guidance and advice but also counseling.

Movie- Hit and Run

Posted September 6, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Bill Waterstreet

When my date this last weekend requested we see the new movie “Hit and Run”, I was momentarily excited. What could it be about, a court drama involving a car accident or a romance with elements of a good action romp? Perhaps, an abusive father finally gets what’s coming to him and has to flee?…

Know Yourself and Seek Self Improvement

Posted November 8, 2012 by Col. Robert Kuckuk

I qualified Expert last week at the pistol range. First time I had ever shot Expert on the pistol range in my 26 years in the Corps. This is remarkable (to me anyway) because I barely qualified as a Marksman last August. Colonels don’t have to shoot at the range, but I went because I…

Opinion: Forming it up brings me down

Posted May 24, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

The “fifteen minutes prior” rule service members are so used to (if in theory rather than practice) always struck me as a bit arbitrary.

So it’s been a year today since the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and the Department of Defense is still functioning. Cool. For some background: DADT, created in 1993 under the Clinton administration, circumvented the ban on homosexuals serving in the military by allowing them to serve under the condition they do not reveal…

Posted January 10, 2013 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

YUMA, Ariz. – In the wake of a recent tragedy, everyone from politicians to the talking heads in the media to the average Joe on the street has been talking about gun control. So far, the one measurable result of all this talk has been an explosion in the sales of firearms people fear may…

Book Review: Ender’s Shadow

Posted April 5, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

“The history of the world is but the biography of great men.” So wrote 19th century writer Thomas Carlyle and what Orson Scott Card exemplified in Ender’s Shadow, a parallel novel to his seminal hit Ender’s Game and book five of the Ender Saga.
