Military members sign their lives over to the government. They have very little choice about when they work, where they live, and how often they can check their phone for messages. This makes military relationships frustrating. They can still be worthwhile and successful, but you have to let go of some of the traditional dating rules. When my husband and I started dating, before the military my parents only wanted me to see him once a week.
The joke was on them. After he joined, we spent the next six years dating long distance and only seeing each other a few times a year. When the service member is on leave, there is nothing wrong with dropping everything to see them every day! If your friends think you are spending too much time together, just tell them about deployment. This is no longer true in most cases but it is especially tough in the military community.
At lower ranks, military service members often earn less than a civilian. Military pay can be disappointingly unpredictable for the first few months. There is nothing wrong with the significant other splitting bills or helping to pay for things.
They could be in formation, in the field, or waiting in line to use the phone. Yes, the military does that! During boot camp and deployments, I wrote letters almost every day. If I waited for him to send a message before I replied, I would be waiting forever. Time spent waiting for someone else to talk first is time wasted.
By the way, this post may contain affiliate links and this blog is for entertainment purposes only. Welcome back! Some of folks genuinely like it; others put up with it because it is a condition of being attached to the person they love. And I want to be clear: those of us who date or marry someone in the military are no better or worse than any other significant other. There was no particular email or conversation that got me thinking about this topic.
And I think, when you start out dating someone, you rarely think about everything that will happen next. Or that could happen. From little, annoying things— like restricted communications during certain times— to big, overwhelming things— like deployments and moves across the world, military life can throw a lot at a new relationship. Military life and military relationships seem to move just a little faster and need more planning than others. Dating can be complicated without the military.
Adding the military into it can be even more so. Answer: No and no! People often expect military relationships to be unfaithful, owing to the amount of time and distance spent away from each other. There are healthy, faithful military relationships, just as there are healthy, faithful civilian relationships. You get to chart that course with your significant other; no one else has a say in it. Military life is hard. You will leave your family.
You will leave your friends over and over again. You will put up with deployment, weird shifts, emergencies, trainings, and a whole bunch of other stuff that will happen at inopportune times and will be the least helpful thing. You can stretch yourself and practice flexibility, picking yourself up and dusting yourself off.
You can try to be a more resilient version of yourself. Deployments put a lot of pressure on everything— you, your military member, the relationship. The time leading up to a deployment can feel like a pressure cooker… and it can also feel very, very romantic. Deployments can also be tough for people in the most exclusive, committed relationships.
It can mess with your self-esteem and sense self-worth. You need to know who you are. Have interests, hobbies, and friends. If your whole identity is wrapped up solely in your service member, it is going to be a tough, lonely life. I was married but separated from my ex at the time. I am now divorced with 2 small kids. Before he left we were dating for about 5 months. We fell in love, he supported me through the divorce, we shared I Love Yous and cried before he left.
We talk or text through a WiFi app everyday. But now he has orders that is on the other end of the US when his deployment is over. He asked me and the kids to move with him, I would in a heart beat because I love him and he makes me so happy, but my kids. I dont know if we are on our way to marriage but he says he dosent want to be without me. That is such a tough, sticky situation. I have not been in your shoes, so I may not be much help. Great post, Jo! I think thanks to Hollywood a lot of people romanticize being with a military man, but it is hard work.
I found this to be very honest and insightful! Thanks so much for doing it! Another super helpful post! Unfortunately, so many of them are now already ended because they could not handle the distance that came along with it sometimes. I do agree with some points out of this. I have been married to my service man for over a year now and it is the most humbling spot I have had to be in.
There are always marriages that fall prey to infidelity, neglect, and abuse. The issues being an active duty married couple bring are unique and extra challenging. You lose freedom in order to fight for freedom. Thankfully we are child free otherwise it would be even more terrible to put up with. Though I hate every ounce of being a military wife, I decided to commit to my marriage and my husband and sacrifice now so we can have a happy retirement later.

Enraged, Jeffrey challenged the man to a duel- a challenge that was accepted, with pistols on horseback being chosen for the fight. Not just shooting him dead, from horseback, Jeffery demonstrated his prodigious skill as a marksmen, by putting a rather sizable hole in his opponents forehead, almost hitting him right between the eyes. This still might have been OK, except on top of having a well connected brother, it turned out that dueling was illegal in France at the time.
Meaning that Jeffrey had just committed murder in the eyes of the court. Sir Jeffrey was promptly arrested, with calls to have him executed, but the Queen was having none of it. Her request was granted, and instead of being executed, Jeffrey was exiled from France. Being something of a novelty, he was sold into slavery and spent around two and a half decades in this state. Ultimately freed sometime in the late s as a part of efforts by England to get its captured citizens released from slavery, the first mention of him back in England after this period occurred in As to what he got up to as a slave, little is known of this, other than an account gleaned from interview he gave to author James Wright who was writing a history of Rutland book.
From this, we know only a couple things. First, Jeffrey somehow grew 22 inches, approximately doubling his height from age of around 25 to 50 when he returned. Compounding the issue was that Queen Henriette had died in , the year he appears to have returned to England, so benefiting from her patronage also was not an option. Unfortunately for him, when he traveled to London in to request a pension from the court, this was a peak time of anti-Catholic sentiment in the country.
Jeffrey subsequently spent the next four years or so in prison, being released in This article originally appeared on Today I Found Out. Harold C. Submarines were very proficient ship-killers in World War II. Nazi U-boats hit 3, Allied ships. But since , submarines have had a mostly dry spell. In fact, most of the warshots fired by subs since then have been Tomahawk cruise missiles on land targets — something Charles Lockwood and Karl Donitz would have found useful.
There are only two submarines that have sunk enemy ships in the more than 70 years since World War II ended. Photo from Wikimedia Commons. According to Military-Today. On Dec. These frigates were designed to hunt submarines. Only this time, the sub hunted them.
According to Bharat-Rakshak. Then the Khukri pressed in for an attack. The Hangor sent a torpedo at the Khukri, and this time scored a hit that left the Indian frigate sinking. The Kirpan tried to attack again, and was targeted with another torpedo for her trouble. The Kirpan evaded a direct hit, and Indian and Pakistani versions dispute whether that frigate was damaged.
The Hangor made her getaway. India won that war, securing the independence of what is now Bangladesh. Pakistan, though, has preserved the Hangor as a museum. This photo HMS Conqueror on the right in the foreground show her awaiting scrapping. The Conqueror so far is the only nuclear submarine to sink an enemy warship in combat.

Belgrano approached the exclusionary zone declared by the Brits, the Conqueror began to track the cruiser. Finally, on May 2, , she got the orders to attack. The Conqueror fired three Mark 8 torpedoes and scored two hits on the cruiser.
The General Belgrano went down with souls. The British eventually re-took the Falkland Islands. The Conqueror is presently awaiting scrapping after being retired in Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty. Ognjen Gajic, a lung expert and critical care specialist at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in the northern U. It seems that patients diagnosed with the coronavirus die rather quickly but recover more slowly compared to other diseases? Or is that an incorrect impression? Ognjen Gajic: Critical illness [in people with the coronavirus] occurs on average after seven days of mild symptoms.
Is there a standard procedure? Gajic: Most patients have mild symptoms and there is no specific treatment thus far other than controlling the symptoms — paracetamol aka acetaminophen for fever, weakness, and the like. Untested forms of treatment can be dangerous due to side effects and should not be used until research shows they are efficient. I deal with the treatment of the critically ill, so I can say more about [those patients]. In many of them, the [COVID] disease progresses to severe bilateral pneumonia characterized by shortness of breath and hypoxia that means oxygen deprivation in body tissue.
These patients should be immediately taken to the hospital for oxygen treatment and their condition should be constantly monitored so it is possible to respond in time [to these problems] with intense respiratory support, including respirators. Sophisticated intensive care with control and support of all organs is successful in about 50 percent of the most severely ill cases, although some patients may be on a respirator for several weeks before recovering or dying.
So far there is no proven specific treatment [for COVID] and untested experimental drugs should not be prescribed without the proper research [being conducted]. We are working with colleagues around the world on a day-to-day basis on research projects for new treatments and prevention. In the Czech Republic, for example, they require everyone to wear masks in public, while the World Health Organization has not cited this as essential for people who are not infected.
Can you give some specific tips on protection? Gajic: Masks should be left to health-care professionals. A thorough hand washing with soap and water is by far the most important tip and, at this point, isolation from all but essential contacts — especially groups — must be respected. Also, before coming to a health-care facility, first make contact by phone, since it is safer to stay home for home treatment if one is showing mild symptoms.
M ayo Clinic. What is it that other countries can learn from them and apply in their response to the pandemic? Gajic: Several colleagues from Wuhan hospitals have been at the Mayo Clinic in recent years and we have been doing joint research. At the beginning of the epidemic in Wuhan, we sent support in terms of treatment guidelines and [medical] staff protection. Now they are helping us. After some initial setbacks, our colleagues in Wuhan, with rigorous isolation measures, adequate equipment, and training, were able to prevent their health-care professionals from becoming sick despite working with critically ill patients.

The US State Department updated a travel warning to India during violent escalation in fighting along the border between nuclear rivals India and Pakistan. The State Department warned women against a troubling rise in sexual violence and all travelers against potential terror attacks. India and Pakistan, bitter rivals for decades, have been fighting inside Kashmir, a disputed border region which each country administers in part.
The fighting kicked off after a Feb. Air battles, shelling, and ground fighting have followed sporadically since that attack, with planes being shot down and Pakistan temporarily closing its airspace. State also cautioned about the larger India-Pakistan border, ethnic insurgent groups in the northeastern states of India, and Maoist extremist groups in Central and Eastern India. Across the border in Pakistan, the State Department urges visitors to reconsider travel to anywhere in the country, but has not revised this recommendation to reflect recent fighting.
Update: This post has been updated to reflect that the State Department had a similar travel warning in place before the terror attack in Kashmir. Team Mighty.

Forty years ago, a two-day, American rescue mission launched on April 24 to free the hostages held by Iran in the U. Embassy in Tehran. For John Limbert, who was held hostage for more than a year during his role as a diplomat in the U.
Embassy in Tehran, it feels like yesterday. Desert One is a minute documentary directed by Barbara Kopple. The film gives viewers an intimate look into the military response led by then-President Jimmy Carter to rescue 52 hostages that were being detained in Tehran, Iran in the U.
Embassy and Foreign Ministry buildings. Ultimately, the mission was aborted due to unoperational helicopters, with zero hostages rescued, eight servicemen dead and several others severely wounded. The ill-fated Operation marked the emergence of special operations in the American military. In , Congress passed the Nunn-Cohen Amendment, citing this tragedy as part of their justification. The amendment mandated the President create a unified combatant command for Special Operations, and permitted the command to have control over its own resources.
I have nothing but admiration for them. It was me and my colleagues that they were trying to rescue. That willingness to self sacrifice so beautifully. That was incredible that they wanted to get the American hostages out and they were a team. Even if one of them doubted it, they thought … well my buddies are going.
That was their duty and that was their job. For Kopple, the hardest part of the filmmaking process was tracking down President Carter to speak on camera for his role in the mission and how it impacted his presidential legacy. Kopple was eventually granted just 20 minutes of access to the former president for the making of the film.
Blake Stilwell. Those responses ranged anywhere between confusion and surprise. The Russians understandably expressed alarm at the idea of a U. Since the Space Force exists only in our hearts and minds and not yet in uniforms, the existing five branches of the military make up the first five notches on this list.

It consists only of commissioned officers and has zero enlisted ranks — but they do have warrant officers.

Members of the Commissioned Corps enjoy for the most part the same veterans benefits as those who served in the Armed Forces. The U. The NOAA Corps also has no enlisted or warrant ranks and is comprised entirely of commissioned officers.
They serve alongside DoD, Merchant Marine, NASA, State Department, and other official agencies to support defense requirements and offer expertise on anything from meteorology to geology to oceanography and much, much more. The Corps is a rapid response force, shuttling experts where they need to be in quick succession while supporting peacetime research.
They can be incorporated into the Armed Forces during times of war, and so wear Navy and Coast Guard uniforms and rank, by order of the President of the United States. Eric Milzarski.

When it comes to self-defense, what do SEALs recommend? And they are surprising.
Willink discusses martial arts. Youtube Screenshot. Okay, great. Willinck is a proponent of jujitsu in particular — recounting how he used it to beat a fellow SEAL in a sparring match who had 20 years of experience in a different martial art.
He said martial arts like Krav Maga can augment jujitsu and other arts. He also noted that you have more time than you think. Willick notes, though, that martial arts have a purpose beyond self-defense. They can teach discipline and humility. He notes that few who start jujitsu get a black belt — because it takes discipline to go out there on the mat constantly, especially when you are a beginner. This is based solely on the experiences of my veteran friends, as well as my own with a past paramour.
This list is not simply a composition of pros or cons, but rather an overview of what dating a service member — active duty or veteran — is like. Slowly break the barrier. The military teaches service members to trust their unit, and few others. They are meant to be extremely close with this group of people and everyone else is simply on a need-to-know basis.

It is a lot of work to break down those barriers and gain enough trust for him open up and be vulnerable. But, trust me, it is worth the effort. Be patient. Do not expect this vulnerability to come quickly. If he comes to you with a problem, chances are he'll talk about it until he no longer wants to and then go into lockdown.
Be patient, but keep digging at those walls. Respect the band of brothers. You need to understand that the military is a brotherhood. Military men may never have closer relationships than those they made in the military. That is not a good thing or a bad thing, that is just a matter of fact and something you need to understand. It is not a competition between his military friends and you; they are people who shared a very intimate part of his life, and you should want to be close with them, too.
