    USS John McCain hit by a merchant vessel just outside the Strait of Malacca, 10 Sailors missing, 5 injured, search and rescue efforts underway.

    The USS Fitzgerald leadership was just relieved for cause last week ahead of the investigation results being published soon. Back in June the USS Fitzgerald was hit by a merchant vessel in the Asia region and lost 7 lives.

    In the case of USS Fitzgerald the senior leadership was not on the bridge, the Captain and CMC were both sleeping in their quarters and junior officers were manning the bridge. That's not unusual, however, there were obviously issues with their training, the watch schedule, etc.

    We'll find out more on the USS McCain soon, but I don't get this one at all. The Strait of Malacca is a VERY busy Strait. When I went through there in 2010 I think I posted a picture on here and remarked that it looked like a parking lot of ships. When we transited the strait it was all hands on deck, and stations ready, etc. because it's a very busy area and the threat of attack, wayward vessels, etc is very present.

    I hope they find those 10 sailors alive and well, I hope that they weren't trapped in flooding cabins or crushed by the collision as they were on the USS Fitzgerald.

    Default Through My Eyes: Aqib Talib ready to honor military vs. Patriots

    We got the chance to explore Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station on Tuesday, and it’s just a whole different world that people aren’t aware of. They do a lot to protect the whole United States, not just Denver. You would think something like that would be fake, but it’s actually real. I’d kind of heard about it. They always said Denver has the underground security. It was awesome to tour. That was my favorite part: learning about all the Secret Service-type stuff that’s going on.

    If I was down in the underground base, I think I would make it. I’ve been through it a little bit. I’m a pretty mentally tough guy. If I wasn’t playing football, I’d probably have something to do with the military.

    We got to have lunch with the Air Force troops later, and that was interesting. We were able to pick these guys’ brains and learn about their daily lives. Of course, we know how our lives are, but it was cool to talk to them and see what they go through on a daily basis.

    They’re a lot like us as far as having to be away from their family. But they’re there for longer periods of time. We get offseason breaks where we can go home and relax. They don’t really get to relax. When they’re here, they’re here. They do so much for this country. It’s great.

    The Pentagon is all in for the Army/Navy game this weekend. The Cadets had the full band and cheerleaders. The midshipman are schedule to show up this afternoon.
    "We saw it…. the hussars let loose their horses. God, what power! They ran through the smoke and the sound was like that of a thousand blacksmiths beating with a thousand hammers

    They rush on to the Swedes! They crash into the Swedish riters…. Overwhelm them! They crash into the second regiment - Overwhelmed! Resistance collapses, dissolves, they move forward as easily as if they were parading on a grand boulevard
