You and I all know that several of us forum members have our minds in the gutter, myself included.
I heard this story today and had to laugh.
Many in the military are probably thankful today that the Navy sees fit to name Naval Air Stations using place names such as "Lakehurst" rather than people names such as "Smith" or "Jones".
The story below illustrates my point.
Fort Dix gets a new name as military consolidates
September 30, 2009
FORT DIX, N.J. (AP) — A storied military installation in New Jersey where Elvis Presley slept and thousands of recruits grumbled is getting a new name.
Fort Dix will join neighboring McGuire Air Force Base and Lakehurst Naval Air Station Thursday to become the nation's first three-service combined base. Its new name will be Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
Combining the bases in the middle of New Jersey was a way to keep them open after the Defense Department's last round of base closures and realignments.
The idea is to share more services to save costs.
It also means a name change for Dix. The post has been a major wartime mobilization and demobilization center since World War I.
More than 77,000 troops headed for Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001 have passed through there.
God and the soldier we like adore,
In times of trouble, not before.
When troubles ended and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the soldier is slighted.

When asked for my race, I answer CauCajun.
Hope is not a plan, and not all change is good. The resistance is here; the resistance is now. RESIST!
These hands are neither cold nor are they dead!!
