The War of 1812, was one of America's "small and forgotten" conflicts, much like the Korea in the 20th century. Ill advised, and really unnecessary for both Great Britain and the young United States of America (which was less than 50 years old at the time), the War of 1912 was a conflict that gained neither side much benefit, and diverted badly needed resources from other endeavors. Nevertheless, there were a number of intriguing and important lessons to be learned from the conflict, none more interesting than those derived from the British Chesapeake Campaign of 1814. A British squadron under command of Adm. Cochrane, raised habit for most of 1814 from the Virginia Tidewater to the waters around Baltimore, doing a surprising amount of damage and raising havoc against the seemingly hapless Americans. The British squadron took and burned Hampton, VA, portions of Washington, DC, and other towns along the bay, eventually only being stopped by the heroic defense of Baltimore and bombardment of Fort McHenry. It is a fascinating story, little known by most Americans, which almost went unnoticed during the recent bicentennial of the War of 1812.

Whether you like them or not, guns are probably the most significant devices ever produced during man's industrial era here on earth. In a merger of modern metallurgy and chemistry, firearms have been among the most extreme engineering achievements in the history of the human race. But along with the technical achievements represented by guns, there have also been the consequences and social responsibilities that have gone with them. More and bloodier wars have been using firearms, than all other weapons previously developed by mankind. And today, given the greater media exposure of gun violence to the general public, the right to own and possess firearms has become a matter of international controversy. In between these two realities, is a gun culture which truly enjoys and marels at the qualities and variety of firearms across the world. And as might be imagined, many people have their individual favorite guns.

Marriage is hard enough for the everyday civilian. But imagine marriage when you are separated by thousands of miles—when one of you faces the dangers of combat and the other shoulders all the burden of home-front duties. As new research shows that long deployments increase the risk of divorce in military marriages (RAND Corporation, Sept. 2013) New York Times best-selling author Dr. Gary Chapman and co-author and former military wife Jocelyn Green have written a new book, The 5 Love Languages Military Edition: The Secret to Love that Lasts, that provides valuable tools for sustaining marriages in even the most challenging of circumstances. Based on Chapman’s popular The 5 Love Languages series of books, which have sold more than 8 million copies worldwide, the Military Edition has been adapted specifically for couples who face the unique challenges of marriage—from deployment to reintegration to constant re-location. The book provides tools to help couples identify, understand, and speak their spouse’s primary love language: quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or physical touch.
