Hello everyone! I am truly honored to have the uniform of MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT Donald G. Cook! Mr. Cook is the first Marine prisoner of war of the Vietnam War and is the only marine to ever receive the Medal of Honor while in Captivity! Mr. Cook was sent to Vietnam in late 1964 after enlisting in 1957. In Vietnam, he served as an advisor to a South Vietnamese Marine Unit. He continued this job until December 31st. His unit was checking for survivors in a downed helicopter when the Viet Cong surrounded their position. He suffered a gunshot wound in his leg and was taken as a live prisoner. While in captivity, he established himself as a senior prisoner and selflessly put the interests of his comrades before his own well being. He gave the more needy men his medicine, food, and supplies and constantly nursed them while his own health was rapidly deteriorating. He eventually succumbed to malaria and his body was never found. He gained the respect of his fellow prisoners and captors as well while he advocated for the release of his comrades. While he was in captivity, his uniform was updated by a close friend in the hopes he would return home until he was disclosed Killed in Action in 1980. There are several awards and a USN ship named after him today! Sincerely, thank you Mr. Cook for sacrificing yourself so that others can live. #veterans #veteran #military #vietnamwar #vietnam #medalofhonor #killedinaction #america #americanhistory #history #marines #marine #usmc #navy #usnavy #usn #american #patriot #museum #preservation #preserve #story #usmilitary #war #warriors #hero #vietnam #prisoner #prisonerofwar
#stifflegdeadlifts change up. •People with lower back issues are often questioned about squatting-I get that quite often. However, through targeted exercises, you can train your glutes, hip flexors, quadriceps and hamstrings and thus reduce your risk of lower back injuries(form is key). And for people like me with old injuries, it enables you to be able to perform better, live a healthier life, and prevent further injuries. •This is my second leg workout of the week after quad day, it’s a pain in the butt, but you’ll feel amazing after you’re done, then you’ll hate yourself for about 3 days. •Posterior chain work: -walking lounges 5 x 10 reps -stiff leg deadlifts 20, 15, 10, 8, 6 reps -back extensions 20, 15, 3 x 10 reps -dumbbell walking lounges 20, 15, 20, 15, 20 -leg press (single) 20, 18, 16, 14, 12 reps -box jump/jump squat 10, 8, 6, 5, 5 reps -hamstring curls 5 x 20 reps -standing calf raises 50 reps -seared calf raises 50 reps -hanging knee crunches 150 reps

It’s not Thursday but I had to get a Switzerland throw back photo. A lot of people have been asking where the name Swiss 8 came from. The story is up on the site now.

Little proof of concept testing. 1st Video--Nacelle Servo Test 2nd--Fuel Boom/Rear Door Servo Test 3rd--DC Motor Test 4th--Lighting A few things to mention: Everything is being designed in an attempt to be replaceable or serviceable. This is adding a lot to the complexity. The lights shown are just four examples of the types of lights and flash patterns. There's at least seven colors in the final result. One HUGE thing is that if I was better at writing code for the Arduino, you just might be able to control everything with one board. This is my first Arduino project so I kept all the main functions to their own board. Makes it much simpler and will be kept in the display base. Additionally, I'm most likely going to have all motor/servo functions controlled by individual potentiometers to enhance the interactivity. Not shown is the stepper motor to raise the Osprey from the ground. A final design hasn't been decided on for how that's going to work. The hard part (programming) is done. It's my goal to have the Osprey itself be detachable from the base as a stand-alone model, as well as plug into a main cable that will turn it into an interactive nerd-fest. Lastly(I think), in a perfect world I will synchronize audio from an Osprey to coorilate with the functions in real time. Like a hover sound to a forward flight sound. I'll need something to conceal the God-awful noise coming from the DC motors. The reason for the noise is that the motors are running against a gear connected to the rotor blade shaft. This was done so I didn't have to line up the motor drive shaft exactly with the rotor blade shaft. It would have been a nightmare to align perfectly. Hey, this is my first novel! **edit- the flaps are not hooked up to the nacelles yet... #scalemodels #scalemodel #scalemodelsworld #Tamiya #italeri #Marines #airforce #armedservices #armedforces #army #navy #plasticmodels #crafts #hobbies #cv22 #cv22osprey #v22osprey #aircraft #pilots #Arduino #beer #servo #dcmotor #steppermotor #led #linux #meshuggah #bleed #soldering #electronics
Current situation: it's 7°f outside, and I'm on a self-imposed fire watch shift. I don't want the puppies, and the back of the house to get cold. It's good though, because it gives me a chance to center myself, and go over the plan for the week ahead. Be honest with yourself, look at your progress, and your challenges, with a clear mind. We tend to get caught up picking apart our faults, and not seeing that each mistake is an opportunity to grow. So on this Monday, I encourage each of you to take a look at the week ahead; refocus on your goals, measure your steps for the next few days, and seek balance in life. Try to find joy in the middle of the battle. Happy Monday my friends! #whatreallymatters #wisdom #motivation #motivationalquotes #monday #mondaymotivation #countrylife #hardwork #horses #winter #marineveteran #marines #marinecorps #usmc #semperfi #marine #oohrah #fightgame #martialarts #wrestling #wrestlingislife #fitness #fattofit #fitfun #fitfamily #fitfam #fitnessjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney

Farmer, 37, of Boynton Beach, Fla.; and Former Navy SEAL Scott A. Wirtz, of St. Louis, Mo. KOBANE, Syria — American military leaders are "constantly apologizing" for President Donald Trump's Syria withdrawal plan, according to the commander who oversees a force of 65,000 U.S.-backed fighters that's battling the Islamic State. “It was a joint war, but they left us in the middle of the road,” said Gen. Mazlum Kobane, who is in charge of the coalition of militias known as the Syrian Democratic Forces. #america #liberty #justice #freedom #veteran #army #navy #marines #airforce #coastguard #veteransupport #militarysupport #trump #republicanvsdemocrat #beinglibertarian #longliverojava #syriandemocraticforces #greenberetfoundation #navysealfoundation #greenberet #navyseal #killedinaction #kia
#Repost @ssgt_rangel What we do may seem extreme or too much, but that is what it takes to do what we do! The bare minimum is not enough. Putting the same weak effort in over and over again, na not here homie. Not with us!

154 days till bootcamp -haven’t posted cause I haven’t been doing anything. Truth be told I’ve kinda been lazy. But today I went and donated platelets so at least I’m doing something. Sat down and made a plan for the week. Listened to some inspirational words spoken by Jordan Peterson which inspired me a bit more. Let’s hope the rest of my week is more productive. #marines #usmc #blood #jordanpeterson #motivation #daystillbootcamp #
Un domingo diferente! #instagood #marines
