On the History Channel earlier this week, it was shared that the B-52 might end up being in service for about 95 years.  It’s projected to be in service until 2045.  It started it’s service in the 1950s.  That is an incredible life span for any aircraft. 

Here’s a link to an amazing story of a B-52 that manged to land without the vertical tail.  Check out the links in the left column of that article – you’ll find plenty of history and some picture galleries as well.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
