This is #History right here...
The original 6 President +John F. Kennedy Pall Bearers, including our own, former President Bud Barnum (second from the right), 53 years later!

One #Marine couldn't make the journey from California, so we had him on +Skype. Two more pall bearers were added after having problems getting the casket into the +The White House. Those two have sadly checked out. #RIP. #MilitaryBenefitAssociation

Were YOU ever involved in #ROTC?? LET US KNOW! --

Today in #US #Military #History: 1916 – +The U.S. Army formed Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). Congress recognized the need for an expanded military reserve to supplement the National Guard, and it passed the National Defense Act. The National Defense Act provided for the establishment of the Officers’ Reserve Corps, to be comprised of men trained in ROTC and in Army training camps.

The act provided for the establishment of Army ROTC scholarships, the creation of the two-year program, and an increase in the amount of money ROTC students receive. These additional incentives stimulated enrollment in the program and introduced the rewards of military life to thousands of qualified young students.

Although this would not come as a surprise, it would definitely NOT be good...

"U.S. officials expect #ISIS to use crude chemical weapons as it tries to defend Mosul from an assault from Iraqi and Kurdish forces, though the terror group’s ability to develop such weapons are limited.
