This portion of our site is dedicated to the people and technology that have shaped military and aerospace history. Posts will be as simple as historic picture of the day to in-depth interviews. If you have an interesting story you’d like to share, please let us know.
It is human nature for people to live in the present and thus forget or pay less attention to the past. For example, many think today is the most complex and complicated period in our history with Covid; Great Power Competition with two peer or near peer rivals; and many simultaneous crises whether in the Middle East or vis a vis Iran, North Korea, Syria and other irritants. And for the military services, especially the Navy that maintains an exhausting deployment schedule, dealing with the here and now of immediate personnel, equipment, readiness and operational issues is time consuming.
