Memes, Wrestling, and Army: DOD INVESTIGATING WHETHER MARINES WERE ASLO INVOLVED IN GREEN BERET MURDER New forensic evidence suggests more people may have been present the night of Logan Melgar's death in Mali WASHINGTON — The military is investigating whether two Marine Raiders played a role in the choking death of a Green Beret in Mali last year and the possible cover up of how it occurred, according to five U.S. defense officials. Two Navy SEALs from DEVGRU are already under investigation for their involvement in the strangling death of Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar during the predawn hours of June 4, 2017. Melgar, 34, died in embassy housing he shared with other service members in Bamako, capital of the West African nation. A September 2017 Army Criminal Investigative Division report about the incident quotes Navy SEAL Tony DeDolph saying he and Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar were wrestling at 4 a.m. when a fellow SEAL Adamcranston Matthew came in and joined in the horseplay. According to the SEALS, the men fell down together and when they stood up Melgar wasn’t breathing. The SEALs say they attempted CPR and tried to open an airway, but Melgar died of asphyxiation. The same report, however, says a witness told investigators that DeDolph and Matthews were among a group of people angry at Melgar, and had made comments about getting back at him. According to that witness, “DeDolph admitted … that he ‘choked [Melgar] out.’ ” and had used duct tape on him. A military medical examiner ruled that Melgar’s death was “homicide by asphyxiation.” Now forensic evidence uncovered during a Navy investigation indicates two Marines may have been present during the night, say five U.S. defense officials. Adam Stump, spokesperson for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which has been probing the incident, declined to comment on the two Marines. “We don’t talk about open investigations,” Stump said. A spokesperson for U.S. Marine Special Operations Command also declined to comment on the two Marines. “It is our policy not to comment on ongoing investigations,” Maj. Nick Mannweiler said.

Christmas, Cookies, and Family: A couple of months ago, when I told General Krulak, the former Commandant of the MarineCorps, now the chair of the NavalAcademy Board of Visitors, that we were having General JamesMattis speak this evening, he said, “Let me tell you a Jim Mattis story.” Gen. Krulak said, when he was Commandant of the Marine Corps, every year, starting about a week before Christmas, he and his wife would bake hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Christmas cookies. They would package them in small bundles. Then on Christmas day, he would load his vehicle. At about 4 a.m., Gen. Krulak would drive himself to every Marine guard post in the Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore area and deliver a small package of Christmas cookies to whatever Marines were pulling guard duty that day. He said that one year, he had gone down to Quantico as one of his stops to deliver Christmas cookies to the Marines on guard duty. He went to the command center and gave a package to the lance corporal who was on duty. He asked, “Who’s the officer of the day?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it’s Brigadier General Mattis.” And General Krulak said, “No, no, no. I know who Gen. Mattis is. I mean, who’s the officer of the day today, Christmas day?” The lance corporal, feeling a little anxious, said, “Sir, it is Brigadier General Mattis.” General Krulak said that, about that time, he spotted in the back room a cot, or a daybed. He said, “No, Lance Corporal. Who slept in that bed last night?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it was Brigadier General Mattis.” About that time, General Krulak said that General Mattis came in, in a duty uniform with a sword, and General Krulak said, “Jim, what are you doing here on Christmas day? Why do you have duty?” General Mattis told him that the young officer who was scheduled to have duty on Christmas day had a family, and General Mattis decided it was better for the young officer to spend Christmas Day with his family, and so he chose to have duty on Christmas Day. General Krulak said, “That’s the kind of officer that Jim Mattis is.” (The story above was told by Dr. Albert C. Pierce, the Director of the Center for the Study of Pro.

Memes, Star Trek, and Enterprise: TECNOLOGIA L'Alluminio trasparente 3 volte piu duro dell'acciaio, ha l'85% della durezza del diamante, pesa la meta rispetto ai normali vetri antiproiettili (vetro+polimero), ed resistente alla corrosione degli agenti atmosferici thedifferentgroup.com Fonte: U.S. NRL DALLA FANTASCIENZA ALLA SCIENZA: L'ALLUMINIO TRASPARENTE DA STAR TREK ALLA REALTÀ In Star Trek l'alluminio trasparente è conosciuto per esser stato il materiale di costruzione delle vetrate dell'USS ENTERPRISE e altri vascelli. Ai giorni nostri viene utilizzato per vetri antiproiettile, cabine di aeromobili e vetri per laser, grazie alla sua elevata durezza e purezza, che lo rendono difficile da scalfire e perfettamente trasparente. Nel 2015 nei US NRL (Naval Research Laboratory) l'equipe del Dr. Jas Sanghera ha messo a punto un processo di sinterizzazione con l'utilizzo delle polveri di Magnesio alluminato spinel (MgAl2O4), ottenendo ciò che comunemente viene chiamato Alluminio trasparente. Si definisce così un materiale molto duro, tenace e resistente anche alla corrosione degli agenti atmosferici, ma soprattutto trasparente nelle lunghezze d'onda del visibile.
