This month we are celebrating all things Military. This week, we are focusing on the USMC. Take a look at this info graphic by Julia Dye from Lead or Dye. She does a great job outlining Marines of Honor and some of the interesting facts that surround them.
Do you know a Marine of Honor? We would love to honor them here. Feel free to share their story, list their name or whatever you would like in the comment section.

This week there was a post in the Marine Corps Times about how technology is changing the way the Marines operate. The Marine Corps is changing its image while following budgets cuts and adapting to the end of 2 long wars. This technology is part of that new image and will transform their ability to be prepared for missions by giving them real-time updates en route.
To aid them is one of three Ospreys that facilitate this communication. They are equipped with an encrypted internal wifi that allows the troops to receive data from an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that has sensors pointed directly at the target. This alone helps troops to be better prepared for the mission. Instead of boarding the plane and falling asleep, they are now alert and paying attention to what is happening in real time with the enemy.

The Jet Observer posted an article this morning about Naval Air Station Oceana where sailors and marines are tested to ensure their mission readiness.
Creative Tent International, Inc. worked with them to ensure the right size, durability, and portability of the structure for the environment and needs.
These shelters are great for aircraft and vehicle maintenance as well as training and other personnel and storage facilities.
