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 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.

CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

Words That Help And Heal

January 7, 2014

Read: Matthew 6:5-15

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. —Matthew 6:9
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 18-19; Matthew 6:1-18

On November 19, 1863, two well-known men gave speeches at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The featured speaker, Edward Everett, was a former congressman, governor, and president of Harvard University. Considered one of the greatest orators of his day, Mr. Everett delivered a formal address lasting 2 hours. He was followed by President Abraham Lincoln, whose speech lasted 2 minutes.

Today, Lincoln’s speech, the Gettysburg Address, is widely known and quoted, while Everett’s words have almost been forgotten. It is not just Lincoln’s eloquent brevity that accounts for this. On that occasion, his words touched the wounded spirit of a nation fractured by civil war, offering hope for the days to come.

Words do not have to be many to be meaningful. What we call the Lord’s Prayer is among the shortest and most memorable of all the teachings of Jesus. It brings help and healing as it reminds us that God is our heavenly Father whose power is at work on earth, just as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:9-10). He provides food, forgiveness, and fortitude for each day (vv.11-13). And all honor and glory belong to Him (v.13). There is nothing in our past, present, and future that is not included in our Lord’s brief words that help and heal.

How easy it is to use many words
And give little thought to the things you say;
So willingly yield your lips to the Lord
And hearts will be blest by them every day. —D. DeHaan
Kind words smooth, and quiet, and comfort the hearer. —Blaise Pascal

Good evening, KAthy!

*HUGS*

Morning commute - low 40's - rain. About an hour.

This evening. Clear skies, 20's - high winds. About an hour.

We're at about 15°F now - set to go down to about 5° or so. This is the coldest weather we've had in 20 years. Winter of '93-'94 we were at 0°F.

I recall the winter of 1970-71 when I was still in the Navy. We were below 0°F at NNMC Bethesda one night when I had the Chief-of-the-Day Watch. We marched out for Evening Colors and Old Glory was wrapped frozen around the flagpole. We had the Fire Department out to help but could not get the Flag down that night.

She has fun with her bike giving them rides in front.

She has a new toy, a stove by FisherPrice that makes cooking noises (frying or boiling water) and even an oven with a timer/bell. She's been cooking and feeding us all day.

Good road trip: NRL, - first job after college. Spent 3 years there in the mid 60s in the Radio Navigation Branch - 5440 if my memory serves me. One of our studies took us on the USNS Mizar out of Bayonne, New Jersy to north of Bermuda. I got sea sick before we got past the Verrazano Narrows Bridge but was recovered by midweek when the ship lost power during a storm and went broadside to the waves. It was a converted ice breaker and had a round bottom. It was not good. Fortunately, they somehow regained power & we rode out the rest of the storm in a more satisfactory manner. I think all the non-crew had retreated to our bunks. My boss, who had been ok earlier got sea sick from this ride. I did not. I concluded that the earlier experience must have inoculated me against this ailment.

As I recall our per diem was pretty low since we had government furnished housing and government furnished food.

Found the old spikes this morning! Ice should not be an issue in the morning, but if it is, I'm ready!

Signing off for the evening - sorry I don't have the customary Valediction this evening.

Good night, God Bless you and God Bless the United States of America!
