Other topics The Air Force The Constitution was ratified in , long, long before the advent of the airplane. It provides, specifically, for a navy and an army in Article 1, Section 8. Though they were aware of lighter-than-air flying craft, the Framers could not have reasonably provided for an Air Force. It should be noted at the outset that the Constitution does not provide, specifically, for the other uniformed services, the Marines and Coast Guard. The Marines, however, as an arm of the Navy, could be excepted; and the Constitution does provide for “naval forces,” and the Coast Guard could thus be excepted. How, then, do we except the Air Force? The first way is via common sense — the Framers certainly did not intend to preclude the use of new technology in the U. Basically, unless your interpretation of the Constitution freezes it in , the Air Force is a perfectly constitutional branch of the U. Thanks to James Severin for the idea. Congressional Districts Congressional Districts divide almost every state in the United States into two or more chunks; each district should be roughly equal in population throughout the state and indeed, the entire country.

Navy in Vietnam: Navy Seabees in Vietnam Deployments of Construction Force Units. by Larry DeVries, CAPT CEC USNR (Ret.) The story of the Navy Seabees in Vietnam is one that stretches over a number of years and includes many, many accomplishments.
True, the full-size carrier—which displaces 55, tons fully loaded—has a history of mechanical troubles since she entered service in But her operational tempo had increased, the result of a renewed push by Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin to get the fleet out into the oceans for training and patrols. To that end, Admiral Kuznetsov has undergone some limited retrofits in recent years and participated in several missions to the Med, so the old vessel had done this kind of thing before.
But as the Kuznetsov rounded Europe and headed towards the Syrian coast, the U. Admiral Kuznetsov has a problematic history. One seaman died when the carrier caught fire during a deployment to the Med. During the same cruise, the flattop spilled hundreds of tons of fuel into the sea while refueling. Her steam turbines are so bad the ship has to be escorted by tugs in case she breaks down. Not to mention the carrier is barely capable of doing what carriers are supposed to do: No word from the U.
Navy as to whether it fears the decrepit flattop again might sink. Thomas Fedyszyn in Proceedings—the monthly journal of the U. Naval Institute—is to establish a permanent naval task force in the region drawn from vessels assigned to the Black Sea and Northern fleets.

Share But having urinals on board posed more than just equality issues. Captain Chris Meyer, manager of the Future Aircraft Carriers Program for the Naval Sea Systems Command, said urinal drain pipes clog more than toilets do and are smellier and more expensive to maintain. This is among the Navy’s first steps to gender-neutralise its carriers since it began deploying women on combat ships in ‘There’s a lot more at play in the design objectives than making the toilet areas gender-neutral,’ he told CNN.
Current vessels squeeze more than sailors into each berthing but on Ford carriers, the numbers will be closer to each, although the spaces will be smaller. The Ford class, shown in an illustration, will debut in late Bathrooms will be attached to berthings as well, where as on many current ships sailors have to relieve themselves in a separate area of the boat.
