John F. Kennedy and the Navy SEALs. Thank you for your vision.

Posting early because of what today is. John F. Kennedy was the president who signed into legislation the formation of the U.S. Navy SEALs in 1962. President Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963, in Dallas Texas.

Although his presidency was mired in controversy and often criticized, he did bring us two great ideas:  We put a man on the moon. He created the Navy SEALs. For these I will forever be grateful.

Just wanted to reprint my blog of today for those who are interested in military history. We write about hunky guys. I guess today I'm a little nostalgic about the loss of life many military men and women and their families have endured over the years. Maybe I'm feeling a bit sad today about the loss of Camelot.

History marches on. We write what inspires us, and the SEALs certainly do inspire me. On a day when we are posting hunky pictures of half-naked men, I just wanted to bring some background and history, I guess a little reality, and a very quick glance at a time, not unlike today, when things seemed very dangerous. We survived, didn't we? There was a cost to this, of course, but we survived.

If you feel like it, go over to my blog today and learn more about John Kennedy and the early formation of the Navy SEALs.


  1. I'm so glad that we have the wonderful SEALs doing a marvellous job and that we get to read all about in a romantic way

    1. Thanks, Julie. Just wanted to bring them to life. These guys I can protect and enjoy. I can't do that for all of them, but I wish I could! Thanks for being such a great supporter of the military, and my writing as well!
