    Mayor Rudy Giuliani, also known as "America's Mayor," today endorsed George Phillips in his bid to unseat Congressman Maurice Hinchey in New York's 22nd Congressional District. "In today's troubled economic environment, more than ever we need government policies which promote a climate of entrepreneurship and job creation rather than the current Democratic plans for higher taxes and suppression of growth. Maurice Hinchey has clearly stated his intention to raise taxes on our nation's farmers and small to medium business owners if he is sent back to Congress for yet another term. George Phillips has pledged to provide relief to our...

    Maybe I'm just being too cynical, but somehow I doubt that Rep. Jose Serrano introduced HJ Res 5 in order to allow George W Bush to run for a third term in office. One week ago, the New York Democrat introduced a measure to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which provides the only term limit on federal office - the Presidency. The amendment, added in 1951, restricts anyone from seeking a third term in office, and Serrano wants that repealed. Why now? Apparently, the notion of Hope and Change has overwhelmed Serrano to the point that he just can't stand to...

    AL ASAD AIRFIELD, Iraq (Feb. 9, 2006) -- By the time Lance Cpl. Blake Rowe was born in 1983, the aircraft on which he today so carefully labors had already been flying for nearly two decades, and shows no sign of touching the ground. Like the Colt .45 pistol (introduced in 1911) and the M-2 .50-caliber machine gun (around since 1919), the venerable CH-46E Sea Knight medium lift assault helicopter has become one of those tools of war whose dependability and utility has ensured its lifespan exceeds the careers of those who use it. Used primarily in the assault support...

Aboard the convoys leaving Forward Operating Base Hit, every Marine and sailor knows their role.

    FORWARD OPERATING BASE HIT, Iraq, Jan. 23, 2006 – Eight days of back-breaking searches through villages and fields along the western Euphrates River Valley have yielded thousands of pieces of ordnance as Iraqi soldiers and U.S. Marines continue Operation Koa Canyon in Iraq's Anbar province. Aimed at isolating insurgents and their weapons, the combined Iraqi and U.S. force began the latest sweep Jan. 15 and have uncovered a staggering amount of weaponry.

    FORWARD OPERATING BASE HIT, Iraq (Jan. 1, 2006) -- The old axiom that the Marines are ‘first in’ often brings to mind the image of infantrymen charging a fire-swept beach or leaping from a hovering helicopter into the thick of battle. However, as the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) began to set up shop in the vicinity of Hit, Iraq, the first MEU Marines to arrive did so carrying communications gear in addition to their weapons. Functioning under an umbrella of security provided by both the MEU’s combat forces and those of the unit they were replacing, the...
