Road Trip: U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D. C.

Vanguard-SLV2

The United States Naval Research Laboratory is the corporate research laboratory for the Navy and Marine Corps, and conducts a broad program of scientific research, technology and advanced development. NRL has served the Navy and the nation for over 85 years and continues to meet the complex technological challenges of today's world.

NRL was the first modern research institution created within the U.S. Navy. It began operations at 11:00 a.m. on July 2, 1923. The first step came in May 1915, a time when Americans were deeply worried about the great European war. Thomas Edison, when asked by a New York Times correspondent to comment on the conflict, argued that the Nation should look to science.

 "The Government" he proposed in a published interview, "should maintain a great research laboratory... In this could be developed... all the technique of military and naval progression without any vast expense." Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels seized the opportunity created by Edison's public comments to enlist Edison's support. He agreed to serve as the head of a new body of civilian experts - the Naval Consulting Board - to advise the Navy on science and technology.

NRL operates as the Navy's full-spectrum corporate laboratory, conducting a broadly based multidisciplinary program of scientific research and advanced technological development directed toward maritime applications of new and improved materials, techniques, equipment, systems and ocean, atmospheric, and space sciences and related technologies.

In 1992, the Secretary of the Navy consolidated existing Navy Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Engineering facilities and Fleet Support facilities to form a corporate community. This community consists of a single corporate research laboratory (NRL) aligned with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and four warfare-oriented centers aligned by mission with the Systems Commands. The four centers are the Naval Air Warfare Center, the Naval Command Control and Ocean Surveillance Center, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center.

As part of the consolidation, the Naval Oceanographic and Atmospheric Research Laboratory, with locations in Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, and Monterey, California, merged with NRL to become what is today, the Navy's corporate laboratory. NRL, the Navy's single, integrated Corporate Laboratory, provides the Navy with a broad foundation of in-house expertise from scientific through advanced development activity.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a National War Memorial in Washington, D.C. It honors members of the U.S. Armed Forces who fought in the Vietnam War, and who died in service or are still Missing In Action.

The memorial currently consists of three separate parts: the Three Soldiers statue, the Vietnam Women's Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, which is the best-known part of the memorial.

The main part of the memorial, which was completed in 1982, is in Constitution Gardens adjacent to the National Mall, just northeast of the Lincoln Memorial. The memorial is maintained by the U.S. National Park Service, and receives around 3 million visitors each year. The Memorial Wall was designed by U.S. landscape architect Maya Lin. The typesetting was performed by Datalantic in Atlanta, Georgia.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

Awakened By A Close Friend
August 2, 2011

A few years ago I had some tests to screen for cancer, and I was nervous about the outcome. My anxiety was magnified as I thought about the fact that while the medical personnel were well-trained and extremely competent, they were also strangers who had no relationship with me.

After awakening from the anesthesia, however, I heard the beautiful sound of my wife’s voice: “It’s great, Honey. They didn’t find anything.” I looked up at her smiling face and was comforted. I needed the assurance of someone who loved me.

A similar assurance lies ahead for all who have trusted Jesus. Believers can be comforted in knowing that when they wake up in heaven, One who loves them greatly—Jesus—will be there.

The Book of Common Prayer expresses this Christian hope: “After my awakening, [my Redeemer] will raise me up; and in my body I shall see God. I myself shall see, and eyes behold Him who is my friend and not a stranger.”

Do you have trouble facing mortality? Jesus promised to be there when we slip from this world into the next. He said, “Where I am [heaven], there you may be also” (John 14:3). What a comfort for believers to know that after death we will be awakened by a close Friend.

What wonders await us in yonder fair land!
The face of our Savior, the touch of His hand,
No tears and no crying, no sighs or despair,
For Jesus is waiting to welcome us there. —Kerr

To see Jesus will be heaven’s greatest joy.

Read: John 14:1-7

Where I am, there you may be also. —John 14:3
Bible in a year:
Psalms 60-62; Romans 5

NRL was one of my favorite customers in the early sixties when I sold for Tektronix in the D.C. area. Very fine group of dedicated people on all levels. Competent, courteous, and capable. The massive sewerage treatment plant joining NRL to the south, put out significant sulfurous fumes which reacted with the silver solder on the then ceramic mounting strips we used. This reaction resulted in silver migration resulting in significant damage to the instruments we built. When I left that area they were going all out trying to solve the mystery of the Thresher submarine incident.

NRL was my first job out of college in the mid 60s. Among other things, I spent some time traveling on their EC 121: http://www.vpnavy.com/ec/nrlec121_01_26jul2003.jpg and had a January cruise to the Bermuda Triangle on the USNS Mizar http://patriot.net/~eastlnd2/Mizar.htm

One of my friends there was part of the search for the Thresher and was to be on the crew to hunt for the H bomb off of Spain. I had gone to the dispensary to get some shots for foreign travel while in the waiting room heard him talking to the medics. As I recall, the question was concerning reactions to sho ts. The friend said something about a minor reaction to a typhoid shot when he was in the Air Force. “OK, we will give you half a shot today and the other half next week.” All of a sudden there was a pot full of excitement and they hauled him away in the Navy ambulance they had sitting there. He had an allergic reaction to the shot and his blood pressure went to 0. I learned later that they gave him an Adrenalin shot in the heart to get him going again. Turned out that the Navy enlistees driving the ambulance did not know the way to the hospital and the patient had to give them directions.

During my discussion with the medical people, I mentioned that I knew their previous customer. They then gave me the assignment to call the family, which I then did. My shots were rather uneventful.

The job there was interesting, but the presence of the DC sewage plant next door and the population congestion was too much for this country boy.
