Wow, who knew the MIA accounting agency was this bad?? Thankfully they are trying to 'fix' it...

IG Issues Scathing Report of #Pentagon 's   #MIA  Accounting Agencies - http://ow.ly/z7OHh

"The Defense Department's inspector general has drafted a stinging rebuke of the Pentagon's struggling effort to recover the remains of missing servicemembers from past wars, concluding the mission lacks the most elemental building blocks for success... Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced an overhaul in late March of the MIA effort. The current agencies involved in the mission will be consolidated within the next year into a new agency." #military   #news   #study   #investigation   #governmentwaste  
According to a draft report of its investigation obtained by ProPublica, the mission lacks agreed upon goals, objectives and priorities. It lacks a strategic plan and up-to-date policies. It lacks standard operating procedures, a complete centralized database of the missing, and a disinterment plan, among other flaws.

"The Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation's military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment."" #military   #governmentwaste   #history   #militarydraft   #mistake   #foxnews   #fox   #news   #selectiveservicesystem   #pennsylvania   #oops   #mistake   #militarybenefitassociation  
It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation's military draft and warning that failure to do so is punishable by a fine and imprisonment.

Restored B-29 Keeps WW II Aviation Alive! - http://ow.ly/z3Beq (Via +Military.com)

"As lead navigator for the group that ended the war with Japan by dropping two atomic bombs, Wilbur Lyon was a witness to one of the most momentous turns of the 20th century.
On Wednesday, he sat in a wheelchair at the Coeur d'Alene Airport and gazed upon the silver hulk of "Fifi," a Boeing B-29 Superfortress like the bomber Lyon flew seven decades ago with the Army Air Forces." #military   #airforce   #history   #wwii   #news   #militarybenefitassociation

Where are all our "Devil Dog's" at?? Can we get a +1 for this?? -

Today in #US   #Military   #History : 1798 – Pre. John Adams signed the bill that re-established the Marine Corps. The Continental Congress had disbanded the service in April of 1783 at the end of the American Revolution. 

However, The Marine Corps recognizes its “official” birthday to be the date that the Second Continental Congress first authorized the establishment of the “Corps of Marines” on 10 November 1775.

BIG news on the +United States Marine Corps front this morning! DO YOU agree with the idea?? -

#Marines  Open Infantry Training to Hundreds More Female Officers - http://ow.ly/yZNY7 

"The opportunity for women to attend the Marines’ Infantry Officer Course experiment won’t be limited to entry-level officers for much longer. Starting this October, company-grade officers — lieutenants and captains — who have already served in another primary occupation will be allowed to raise their hands and give IOC a shot."

US Nuclear Missile Duty: It Weighs on Your Mind: http://ow.ly/yXbjB 

"It may come as a surprise to some that the Air Force still operates intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs. And therein lies part of the problem for missileers, who feel underappreciated in a military that has long since shifted its main focus to fighting small wars, striking with unmanned drones and countering terrorism and cyberattacks." #military   #airforce   #nuclearweapons   #usa   #news   #militarynews   #starsandstripes   #missile  
Andy Parthum spends his workday 60 feet (18 meters) below ground awaiting the order he hopes never arrives: to launch the most powerful weapon ever devised by man. He is a nuclear "missileer" — an airman who does his duty not in the air but in a hole in the ground.
