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

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl2.jpg

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 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.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl1.jpg

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.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl7.jpg

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.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl5.jpg

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.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl3.jpg

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.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/usnrl8.jpg

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.

Displaying God’s Glory

May 28, 2013

I love baseball and have been a fan of the sport since I was a little kid. I especially enjoy following the Detroit Tigers. But during a recent season, the Tigers’ poor play and losing record early in the season frustrated me greatly. So for my own personal well-being, I took a break. I spent 4 days avoiding anything to do with my favorite team.

During those 4 Tiger-less days, I began to contemplate how difficult it is to give up things we’ve grown accustomed to. Yet there are times when God may want us to.

For instance, we may be involved in an activity that has become all-encompassing—and we know it would be best to limit it (see 1 Cor. 6:12). Or we may have a habit or practice that we know misses the mark of pleasing God, and we realize that we need to let it go because we love Him and want Him to be glorified through us (15:34).

When we do find things that interfere with our relationship with the Lord, with His help we can stop. God has given us the provision (1 Cor. 10:13), and the Spirit provides the power (Rom. 8:5).

Let’s ask Him to help us not let anything block His glory from shining through.

You are perfect, Lord, and we are so far from
perfect. Please chip away at our imperfections
through the work of Your Holy Spirit. Help us
each day to grow more and more like You.
Drawing close to Christ produces a growing Christlikeness.

Read: Romans 8:1-10

Those who live according to the Spirit, [live according to] the things of the Spirit. —Romans 8:5
Bible in a Year:
2 Chronicles 4-6; John 10:24-42

SPITFIRE 944

In 2005, an 83 year-old World War II pilot is surprised to see
16mm footage of his 1944 Spitfire crash for the first time.

A wonderful story and footage of WWII planes!

I have flown a Texax T-6 (WW2 Era), A 1935 Taylorcraft, and an old 30’s era biplane.

I’ve never had the honor of flying a Spitfire, but I LOVE the way they look.

I am not a licensed pilot, but take the yoke whenever somebody lets me...LOL.

Great to see you this evening! Thanks very much for tonight’s Road Trip to U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C.!

Sadly, just a drive-by posting this evening. I'm starting a new project tomorrow and must retire early.
