The past six months has seen a rapid rise in the level of naval and maritime activity across the globe. China, Russia, and Iran have expanded their air and naval activity into disputed areas with their neighbors, raising tensions and concerns around the world. Recently, the invasions of Crimea, Ukraine, and Yemen have all increased the levels of naval activity in the Baltic and Black Seas, as well as the Gulf of Aden, Straits of Hormuz, and Persian Gulf. In addition, out in the Pacific, tensions are rising between China and North Korea, and their neighbors around the Rim of the Pacific region. Active humanitarian crises are dominating the Mediterranean between Libya and Italy, along with Malaysia, Indonesia, and other areas of the Southwest Pacific. In addition, add in a major construction boom in naval vessels of all types, and maritime tensions are the highest they have been since the end of the Cold War.
To gain some insight on this complex international maritime situation, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Netwok (@Writestream)), today at 1 PM EDT. Host, bestselling author, journalist, documentary and film produceer John D. Gresham will be talking with Aviation Week & Space Technology Naval Editor Mike Fabey. Together they will discuss the ongoing series of crises and events across the world's high seas, along with new developments in shipbuilding and aircraft design, as well as other new technology developments.
Despite adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in US military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the US military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen.
The military selected Tuskegee Institute to train pilots because of its commitment to aeronautical training. Tuskegee had the facilities, and engineering and technical instructors, and climate for year-round flying. The first Civilian Pilot Training Program students completed their instruction in May 1940. The Tuskegee program was then expanded and became the center for African-American aviation during World War II.
The Tuskegee Airmen overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They proved conclusively that African Americans could fly and maintain sophisticated combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen’s achievements, together with the men and women who supported them, paved the way for full integration of the US military.
Nov. 6, 1998, President Clinton approved Public Law 105-355, which established the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, to commemorate and interpret the heroic actions of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. The site contains a museum and interpretive programs at Moton Field and a national center.
Salute to the sons of the US Virgin Islands: Henry E. Rohlsen and Herbert Heywood, The Tuskegee in Paradise, and to the newsletter about them of the same name.
Welcome to this episode of Disabled Veteran Radio todays topics - Veterans Administration Secretary Robert A. McDonald states that the reason I had a grease gun stuck up my ass on The U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln CVN 72 in November of 1989 is beacuse I was drunk ! What a Gosh Darn Lie !
Also a Reporter who did a story on me back in 2007 Ben Montgomery from Tampa Bay Times. He is now all over the news because he was privy to the 61 one year old Doug Hughes mail man out of Riverview, Florida who just landed his protest gyrocopter packed with 535 letters addressed to U.S. Capitol to draw attention to campaign fiance reform. I am trying to get Americas attention to tell you how The Veterans Administration is still cooking the books and how they will not fully compensate Disabled Veterans that were misdiagnosed with personality disorder which made thousands miss out on Veterans Benefits for years. The correct Diagnoses on the Date Of Disacharge should have been P T S D resulting in a Disability Rating.

USS Lexington (CV 2), along with her sister ship, USS Saratoga (CV 3), were America's first real aircraft carriers, and genuine wonders of the world we were commissioned in the late 1920s. Converted from a pair of battlecruiser hulls made surplus by the Washington Naval Treaty, the two ships were the largest, most powerful, and fastest warships in the world. Able to carry and operate up to 90 aircraft, twice as many as any of the contemporary British and Japanese aircraft carriers, Lexington and her sister ship were the platforms where the U.S. Navy learned to take airpower out to sea. But Lexington was more than just a ship, for she also was a home and a schoolhouse for the men who served aboard her. As American's aircraft carrier fleet grew prior to World War II, Lexington and her sister were the ships where the men who would crew those new carriers learned their trades. In addition, some of the U.S. Navy's greatest leaders in World War II were captains aboard the Lexington, including Adm. Ernest J. King and Rear Adm. Forrest Sherman. And even though Lexington was lost at the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942, her loss taught critical damage control lessons that are still used today.
To learn more about "Lady Lex," tune in at 1 PM EDT for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) hosted by author, historian, journalist and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01). John's guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Phil Keith, who has written a new book, STAY THE RISING SUN, chronicles the story of the Lexington to her sinking in the Coral Sea.

Tonight we tackle the multifaceted issue of unmanned aerial vehicles, or Drones. They have gained a place in history as one of the most hated, loved, and misunderstood pieces of equiptment our society has ever created. It is important to distinguish what a person is referring to when they talk about drones. This is due to the fact that the term is a blanket reference to pretty much anything that has locomotion, and is either remotely controlled, or runs a predetermined program for it's operation. This means that everything from a small hobbyists $20 RC helicopter to General Atomics multi billion dollar fleet of Predator drones all fall under this banner.
Though we will touch on the topic of smaller 'flying camera' drones, but our main topic tonight will be the larger, CIA and military driven UAVs and their role in the so-called 'War on Terror'.
We have Brandon Bryant as our guest tonight. He knows all too well how these are used and how the operations are carried out. He should, he used to be a drone pilot. He will talk about his experiences with turning targets into 'bug splat', and the consequences, not just to those on the ground, but the scars he now bears daily with the resulting PTSD. Many studies have revealed that the PTSD most drone operators suffer from might be worse than those in hand to hand combat. It is an honor and with much gratitude that we welcome him to the show tonight.
While Brandon is not a leaker of top secret documents, he is definitely a whistleblower in the truest sense of the word. He is calling attention to the hipocrisy and deceit being propagated by the US and it's President, wherein they contend that drone strikes are a precision surgical instrument, equal to excising a cancer while leaving the remaining tissue intact. This is a lie. All males over 13 years of age are not 'militants'. Weddings are not target practice.

The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Joshua 10:7-10 which reads: "So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour. And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night. And the Lord discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.”

Rebekah Roth, the very articulate author of Methodical Illusion returns as our guest.
She spent nearly thirty years in the airline industry, working as both a flight attendant and an international purser. Her expertise and training as a flight attendant allowed her to research the events of September 11, 2001, with an insider’s knowledge that eventually lead her to discover details and answers to some of the most haunting questions surrounding that infamous day in our history.
Her extensive research, bolstered by her insider knowledge and a list of extensive contacts both inside and outside of the airline industry, produced surprising results that shattered her cognitive dissonance and compelled her to tell her story.
Ms. Roth adeptly fills in the blanks that have been redacted from history. Among her findings: ten of the accused 9/11 hijackers were still alive months and years after that September day. Several of them were also airline employees employed with Saudi Arabia Airlines and that they had had their identifications stolen years prior to 9/11. At least four of the accused hijackers threatened to sue the U.S. Government and the FBI if they did not stop using their names and identities. Additionally, Ms. Roth discovered and verified that at least two women were also directly involved in the 9/11 attacks. Her personal knowledge of in-flight procedures, FAA hijacking protocols, the state of Massachusetts and cell phone technology, she discovered yet to be exposed details concerning the aircraft, the passengers and the perpetrators.
Based on actual events and the product of her exhaustive investigative research, Methodical Illusion is written as a novel to protect her and her family from the repercussions that inevitably occur when you get too close to the truth.
