    Battle of Kosovo Field or "Field of Blackbirds"

    in Politics Conservative

    Kosovo Field is a fairly flat plain between the Lab and Sitnica Rivers in southern Serbia several miles northwest of the town of Pristina (although the recently-declared "Republic of Kosovo" refuses to recognize Serbian rule). Bordered on both sides by mountain ranges, the plain was one of the main crossroads of the Balkans since ancient times, giving many an invading army north-south access to the peninsula.


    The size and composition of the two armies is doubtful. The best estimates by modern historians put the Serbian coalition army at about 25,000 men, with the Turkish force comprising nearly 40,000. Both armies formed into the traditional right wing, center, and left wing, with each division comprising two distinct lines.


    The Serbian right, commanded by provincial lord Vuk Brankovic, totaled around 5000 men. The front line was made up of the "mala vlastela." These were the Serbian minor nobility who were basically similar to the Turkish akincis, who were mounted horse archers wearing lamellar armor (small hardened leather pieces or metal plates held together with leather ties). The second line was infantrymen, using spears, axes, javelins, and bows (possibly also crossbows).


    Prince Lazar commanded the Serbian center, which likely mustered 15,000 men altogether. The front line was composed of "veliki vlastela," greater nobles wearing lamellar armor and armed mainly with lances, maces and bows. The second line comprised more Serbian foot soldiers. Due to the size of the center, its formation was much wider than the two wings.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and LCOL. William B. O'Conner, USAF (Ret.)

    in Military

    The Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk was a wonder of the aviation world when it first appeared at air shows and exhibitions in 1989. Looking like something that Darth Vader might fly in a STAR WARS movie, the Nighthawk was the first warplane designed with signiture reduction ("stealth") at the core of its design. At the time, the Nighthawk was a generation ahead of any other aircraft or defensive system of its era. During its three decades of service, the F-117A flew combat missions during numerous air campaigns from Panama to the Persian Gulf. And for the dozens of books and hundreds of magazine articles, there have been surprisingly few actual accounts of what it was like to fly the Nighthawk into combat. That has changed however, with the publication by Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) of STEALTH FIGHTER: A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF AN F-117 PILOT.


    So join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the WriteStream Radio Network (#Writestream)) at 1 p.m. Eastern today when Hhs guest will be Lt. Col. William B. "Brad" O'Conner. USAF (Ret.). A career aviator in the U.S. Air Force, Lt. Col. O'Connor is the author of STEALTH FIGHTER: A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF AN F-117 PILOT, and a combat veteran of Operation Allied Force in 1999. In his book, Lt. Col. O'Connor gives the reader an intimate look at flying "the black jet" in combat, along with some candid opinions regarding the poor command and control of air power during the campaign. His insights should prove useful to listeners, trying to understand the present day their operations against ISIL in the Middle East. Tune in for what is sure to be an engaging hour on Military Monday.

    Facebook friends , Flag flying Colorado Springs

    in Current Events

    (137) Facebook friends, Flag flying Colorado Springs


    The Joy of having Friends on Facebook THANK YOU to Jenn Zerfas for displaying my Flag over Colorado Springs after climbing the "incline", and to Tony Barnes who helped set this up. 


    This is just so cool to see this again THANK YOU to both of you


    I have done a couple of Shows with Tony Barnes and it was through him that somehow I connected via the cloud with Jenn Zerfas, Who then ran my flag up to the Manitou Incline and took a picture 


    Another stop on that flags Journey to all kinds of places 


    Jennie Zerfas


    I did 6.5 years in the Army (99-06). Kosovo Jan 2001- April 2001. 


    Married with two kids (ages 2 and 3 years old).


    I work in medical boards at Evans Army Community Hospital on Fort Carson.  I help process paperwork and help Soldiers transition out of the military due to medical conditions.  I have been working at the hospital for almost 12 years 


    I run up the mountains for sanity, Exercise.  Accomplishments.  To see the beauty at the top of the world.  Serenity.  Pushing myself to go 2000 + feet in the climb straight up the mountain is vigorous.  I do it purely for the intense workout and some alone time.  The view at the top is breath taking.  I am my best motivator and I have to remember that.  I respect the mountains and I love the peace that I get when I do this. It humbles me every time I get to the top.  I never get tired of doing the incline at Manitou.
