Thank you Lieutenant Boll, EN2 Brandt, OS3 Melneck, FR Sims from Assault Craft Unit Two and Mrs. Dahn from the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory for coming to NCS Middle and sharing all of the exciting possibilities related to STEM. Mrs. Dahn’s recurring question as she showed brand new robot technology to the kids was, “Who wants to be an engineer now?” The overwhelming response from the kids was, “We do!”

Amphibious Operations:

Of all the fighting forces of the Navy, one of the least understood are the Amphibious Forces. In a general way, of course, the public is aware that special craft, large and small, are designed to hit enemy beaches, disgorge their cargoes of men and material and then back off under their own power. There have been photographs and pictures of the assault waves doing this very thing. But nowhere, until this collection of paintings was put together to showcase the events in World War II, has there been a graphic representation of where these craft came from, how they were operated, and how the officers and crews who manned them were trained.

And yet, the Amphibious Forces are in a very real sense "the infantry of the Navy," with their personnel and equipment, along with their front-line duties, form one of the "fightingest team" afloat.

The artists, whose work is here displayed, have felt and captured the deep and essentially spirit of the Amphibious Forces. Wisely eschewing any attempt to glamorize their subject, they have done us all the great service of presenting their subject in the clear strong light of reality.

76 years ago today, 2,403 Americans lost their lives and 1,178 were wounded in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack lasted only 90 minutes, but in those devastating minutes American heroism shone through. 15 Medals of Honor, 51 Navy Crosses, 53 Silver Stars, four Navy and Marine Corps Medals, four Distinguished Service Crosses, three Bronze Star Medals, one Distinguished Service Medal, and One Distinguished Flying Cross were awarded to distinguished American Servicemen who fought in the Pearl Harbor attack.
Today and for years to come, we remember the 7th of December.

Tomorrow we'll commemorate the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

In this blog, Rear Adm. Brian Fort, commander, Navy Region Hawaii and Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, explains why Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is an opportunity for all of us to remember key lessons of the past, reflect on the meaning of the Second World War, and look forward.
