Today, 21st January 1968 saw the start of the Battle of Khe Sanh in the Vietnam War. The Khe Sanh Combat Base had been established by the US in 1962, two miles from the village of Khe Sanh. It was a large compound with several artillery positions and even an air landing strip. In January 1968 it was garrisoned by 6,000 US Marines as well as a number of ARVN troops as well. On the 20th a North Vietnamese (PAVN) officer defected to the US camp and told of plans of PAVN assault on the base. Just after midnight on the morning of the 21st, the attack began. PAVN troops attacked an outer defence (Hill 861) breaking through defences and only being repulsed after fierce hand to hand fighting. A massive artillery & rocker barrage then hit the main camp exploding a US ammo dump and tear gas store, causing chaos with the base. The village, defended by 160 local troops, was then attacked. Nine UH-1 choppers with troops were sent to help, but landing too close, all the rescue troops were killed and a Huey lost. An overland rescue attempt was also repulsed, finally the village defenders managed to fight their to the main camp. More Marines and ARVN troops were flown in to reinforce the base, which for the nest few weeks was under almost constant artillery shelling and infantry assaults. By mid February the situation was dire and US High Command even considered using tactical nuclear weapons, but we're advised the terrain would make them largely ineffective. In April the US launched Operation Pegasus, an Air Cavalry assault, to relieve siege, which they succeeded in doing. In June, US command decided to abandon the Khe Sanh base and it was dismantled and evacuated. In total over 1,500 US troops died, 7,500 wounded. The ARVN 665 casualties. The PAVN lost an estimated 10-15,000 killed. Khe Sanh was one of the USMC major battles of the war. If you're inspired to refight Vietnam, @fullmetalminiatures range is well worth a look. Excellent figures modelled on real combat pictures. #wargaming #wargames #militarymodelling #vietnamwar #vietnam #fullmetalminiatures #usmc #thelittlecorporal #lovehistory #books #historybooks #wargamesbooks #boltaction #usarmy #aircavalry #usmarines

🇺🇸♠️ U.S. Marines and Sailors with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Maritime Raid Force secure a simulated casualty during Visit, Board, Search and Seizure training in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Jan. 10, 2020. During VBSS training, the Marines hone their ship boarding and seizure capabilities to better perform maritime interdiction operations. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform a wide range of military operations as the premier crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific region.

The ASM-135 ASAT is an air launched, anti-satellite missile. This missile was successfully tested on the 13th of September 1985, when F15 pilot Wilbert Pearson, destroyed the Solwind P78-1 satellite flying at an altitude of 345 miles (555 km). Prior to the launch, W. Pearson flew at Mach 1.22 in his F-15A. He then executed a 3.8g zoom climb at an angle of 65 degrees. The ASM-135 ASAT was automatically launched at 38,100 ft while the F-15 was flying at Mach .934

Early US Marine Corps cap badge patter 1868-1897. This one belonged to a Sgt that work for Commandant Jacob Zeilin (1864–1876) during the 1870's. This was a time of change for the Marine Corps and many custom, uniforms, and emblems come from this proud era of the United States Marine Corps Semper fi!!! #history #museum #medal #war #warhistory #marinecorps #marines #usmarines #usa🇺🇸 #leatherneck #bulldogs #semperfi #1870 #americanhero #realamericanhero #saveourhistory #historyplace #historyfacts #historylesson #historylover

{Christmas Away From Home} “Sometimes in life we take things for granted and get caught up in the daily grind. We don’t take time to ponder or realize the blessings God has bestowed upon us through our talents and relationships... I have recently been humbled. You see, this life we live in America is only possible due to our basic freedoms and capitalistic economy... and those freedoms come with a price. Though some will never truly understand, my family and I have gained a new perspective and appreciation for the sacrifice of freedom. My husband has been gone for several months and missed so many of our youngest daughter’s firsts and he will soon miss our favorite holiday, Christmas. Although we are physically separated, our love grows stronger and we become more spiritually connected each day. So as we go through life, remember those who make the sacrifices so you may live how you desire. I pray for all of my military spouses out there who are in a similar situation and hope you are built up and supported until your service member returns. ‘Tis the season. Be thankful. Be grateful. Be a blessing. And may you all be blessed.” ❤️ 📷: .⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀ . .

30,542 US Veterans have been lost to suicide in the war at home during my time since I’ve started the push-up challenge in April 2, 2016 (22 a day). . 1388 consecutive days of the 22 push-up challenge. #CantStop . . Community support is the #1 thing that you can do to help some of our veterans adjust back to civilian life. Be there for each other! Just a call, text or a meet up for coffee could make all the difference in someone’s life. Show them you care and that you’re there for them. . #militarysupport #thatpushupguy #originalpushupguy #usarmy #usmarines #uscoastguard #usairforce #usnavy #warathome #supportourveterans #supportourtroops #dontgiveup #beThere #dosomething

🥊 The fighters took a trip up to Hiroshima this past weekend to train with several boxers in japan! 🇯🇵 • Amazing session as the fighters continued to practice their skills in the sweet science! • It was also an honor for them to spar different styles and get a different look! • Sparring different styles of boxing helps you to be able to adapt and see how you can get the upper hand on your opponent. • Boxing is like a game of chess and checkers at times. Having the adaptability but also outsmarting your opponent! • Stay humble, Stay hungry, stay focused! - Coach Aaron GS 🥊

🥊 One of my fight & conditioning class sessions here in Iwakuni, Japan! • Boxing is not all about fighting and hard sparring. • It’s also about different individuals with specific goals! Whether it be to jump in the ring, or even just dropping a couple pounds! • Boxing can be a lifestyle for all different ages and fitness levels! • Make sure you have a great group of people to train with and start accomplishing your goals! 🥊

🥊 Mitt work with one of my fighters @joevabr! • In this video we are working throwing the jab-straight, slipping and then countering while following through with combos. •Mitt work is a great tool for sharpening your boxing skills and well creating a flow/ fluidity. • Of course, if you do not have someone to hold mitts with, stick to the fundamentals of shadowboxing and visualize an opponent in front of you!
