SORT BY Relevancy
While good ideas are often forgotten, bad ideas seem to pop up over an over again - especially the sexy ones that sound so good, but never seem to work well. The answer, of course, is to try again and hope for a better result.
Some would argue that sea swap is one of those sexy ideas that just isn't that practical in actual operation.
A good idea? One of the good ideas mostly forgotten is that of the Junior Officer in significant positions of authority. LTJG as XO? LT as Skipper? Sure... used to be common; now not so much outside the MIW and PC community.
What are the different challenges for the officer on a smaller warship? As JO command opportunities shrink, what is our Navy losing?
Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and anything else the squirrels deliver will be Lieutenant Matthew Hipple, USN.
We'll start the conversation from his article in the July 2013 Proceedings, Sea Swap - Its a Trap - then we'll be off to the races from there.
LT Hipple is a surface warfare officer who graduated from Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service. He is Director of the NEXTWAR blog and hosts of the Sea Control podcast. While his opinions may not reflect those of the United States Navy, Department of Defense, or US Government, he wishes they did.

On January 30th, 1945 a Soviet Sub sank the MV Wilhelm Gustloff with three torpedos into the port side. More than 10,000 died according to recent analysis with modern technology and survivor testimonies. Most of the casualties were women and children, including wounded soldiers. Many were refugees who were fleeing the advancing Red Army. There was a recent film about the tragedy. Why is this disaster with such a great loss of life never discussed in the media? Everyone hears about the Titanic, but never about the MV Wilhelm Gustloff. Are the lives of the German people of lesser value than those victims of other maritime disasters? Checkout the video link:
Born in Montreal, Quebec, PATRICIA CONROY was raised in a strong musical environment, influenced by the French culture, her mother’s Maritime country background and her father’s Irish roots. She credits her early years of performing with her family band, singing in church, and the always visiting musical guests in her home, as being her real musical training. “There was always a fiddle, accordion or guitar being played, and I absolutely treasure those years.” Fast forward: Patricia went on to win CCMA awards and release hits (and videos) like Bad Day For Trains, Mary On The Dashboard, Keep Me Rockin' & My Baby Loves Me. She's had success as a songwriter writing for/with other artists including Here In My Heart (a single recorded by Jimmy Rankin which she co-wrote with him), The Day I Fall (recorded by One More Girl - Patricia co-wrote it with Steve Fox & Lisa Brokop) among many other songs - including ones written with and for fellow Country artist Michelle Wright. Recently, Patricia joined Michelle, Carolyn Dawn Johnson & Beverley Mahood for an acoustic concert/songwriters' round in Exeter, Ontario. Tune in and get caught up with Patricia Conroy & hear some of her great songs.
For more than a decade, the international waterways around the Horn of Africa, have been a hotbed of one of the world's oldest crimes: Piracy. In both the Red Sea and the coastal regions of Somalia, the seizing and ransoming of merchant ships has often reached epidemic proportions, and has become a genuine concern to those charged with enforcing freedom of navigation. In response, the Combined Maritime Forces coalition (a 25 nation group based in Bahrain) formed Combined Task Force (CTF) 151 in 2009 to combat piracy around the Horn of Africa, and it has been most effective.
To get an inside look at what CTF 151 is all about, join us on Military Monday, when host John D. Gresham will interview USNI author and former CTF 151 commander, rear Adm. Terry McKnight, USN (Ret.). Author of the new USNI book, Pirate Alley: Commanding Task Force 151 Off Somalia, Rear Adm. McKnight will provide listeners With an inside look into Counter-Piracy operations today. So join us at 1 PM EDT On Monday, July 22, into what promises to be a fascinating look into one of today's most challenging military operations.
**** HOST NOTE ****

Like the rest of the US military, the Navy has been working hard to integrate unmanned systems into their inventory for operational combat use. However, the unique challenges of operating unmanned systems in the maritime environment has forced the Navy to be somewhat more methodical and systematic in their development/deployment of such systems, especially unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Despite what some have said has been overly cautious approach, the Navy's efforts are yielding excellent results and promising capabilities for the future.
To learn more about the Navy's UAV programs, especially the recent success of their X-47B stealth prototype, joining host John D Gresham and guests Capt. Chuck Nash, USN (Ret. and Fox News military analyst) and SEAPOWER Magagine writer Rick Burgess (of the Navy League). Please join us at 1 PM EDT for military Monday, and call in with your questions, thoughts, and comments.
This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Andrew Carroll, author of Here is Where: Discovering America's Great Forgotten History.
Here Is Where chronicles Andrew Carroll’s eye-opening – and at times hilarious -- journey across America to find and explore unmarked historic sites where extraordinary moments occurred and remarkable individuals once lived. How many unmarked places are there where intriguing events have unfolded and that we walk past every day, not realizing their significance? To answer that question, Carroll ultimately trekked to every region of the country. Among the things he learned: *Where in North America the oldest sample of human DNA was discovered * Where America’s deadliest maritime disaster took place, a calamity worse than the fate of the Titanic *Which virtually unknown American scientist saved hundreds of millions of lives *How a 14-year-old farm boy’s brainstorm led to the creation of television Here Is Where is thoroughly entertaining, but it’s also a profound reminder that the places we pass by often harbor amazing secrets and that there are countless other astonishing stories still out there, waiting to be found.
Andrew Carroll is the editor of several New York Times bestsellers, including Letters of a Nation, Behind the Lines, and War Letters, which inspired an acclaimed PBS documentary. Carroll's book Operation Homecoming was the inspiration for an Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning film.
