Happy Fourth of July from My Navy Life!

1JULY 4 - A

A DAY TO CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE & VETERANS!

Life aboard ship and throughout our U.S. Military is not all work and duty. Celebrating July 4th Independence Day is a welcomed event for veterans, too!

And U.S. Navy veteran Shane Steinhart, author of My Navy Life and who served aboard five ships (all aircraft carriers!), wishes to share this celebration with veterans everywhere and all Americans, as well.

Happy July 4th to you! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโš“๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

The 59 Veterans Project Remembers the Korean War

1AKOREAN WAR

REMEMBER THE KOREAN WAR & U.S. VETERANS!

This year of 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War. Often called the “Forgotten War” or “Unknown War,” that included the participation of over 55 nations and five million veterans deployed worldwide by the United States, the Korean War actually began on June 25, 1950 between North and South Korea.

However, here at the 59 Veterans Project, the Korean War is not forgotten to us! Nor are all who served, fought and died during the three years it ensued. We remember and shall never forget.

And all ye Korean War veterans, WE SALUTE YOU!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๏ธ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

The USS Theodore Roosevelt is on Station!

USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71)

LIFE ABOARD A US AIRCRAFT CARRIER IS AWESOME!

The USS Theodore Roosevelt is one bad-ass ship and an aircraft carrier not to be trifled with or ever ignored. It recently completed carrier qualifications and is now back on station in the Indo-Pacific. So, rest well and feel safe, Indo-Pacific. You are in good hands! The absolute best, actually.

And if you ever wondered how it is to live and serve aboard a giant US aircraft carrier, check out author Shane Steinhart’s exciting memoir My Navy Life on amazon. He served aboard five aircraft carriers during his career in the US Navy. And they, too, were bad-ass ships not to be trifled with!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโš“๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Come Visit Rocky Mountain National Park with the 59 Veterans Project!

1ARocky Mountain 1

WE CAN’T WAIT TO TREK THIS PARK WITH VETERANS!

We’re never quite sure here at the 59 Veterans which of our nation’s magnificent national parks is our favorite. Each of them is just so breathtaking. But certainly, near the top of our list stands Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.

Established on January 26, 1915, and comprising over 265,800 acres of diverse, rugged terrain, Rocky Mountain National Park has ecosystems varying from over 150 riparian lakes and montane and subalpine forests to treeless alpine tundra.

Wildlife throughout the park includes mule deer, bighorn sheep, black bears and various species of birds and reptiles. Plus, cougars inhabit its igneous mountains and glacial valleys. Longs Peak and the scenic Bear Lake are popular destinations, as well as the historic Trail Ridge Road, which stands over 12,000 feet in height..

This is definitely the place to go to experience the adventure of a lifetime. And all of us at the 59 Veterans can’t wait to trek it alongside military veterans. To learn more about our ascent up this summit, visit our headquarters company at. http://59veterans.com/.ย ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๏ธ๐Ÿ’–

My Navy Life Salutes Old Glory Aboard a U.S. Aircraft Carrier!

1FLAG DAY AIRCRAFT CARRIER

JOIN US ABOARD SHIP WITH OLD GLORY!

This whole week is National Flag Week. And just a few days ago we celebrated Flag Day. We can hardly think of a more formidable manner to view the Stars and Stripes than from high above a formidable U.S. aircraft carrier. May each be around for centuries to come!

Meanwhile, you can visit amazon online and experience the furor and glory of life aboard a floating AC city in Shane Steinhart’s exciting memoir “My Navy Life.” It is a riveting account of his service aboard five aircraft carriers!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโš“๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Come Celebrate Flag Day with the 59 Veterans!

1FLAG DAY

THE FLAG STANDS FOR AMERICA, AND WE STAND FOR IT!

Today is June 14. And every June 14 in the United States we celebrateย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธFlag Day๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ.

On this day in 1777, the “Stars and Stripes” was officially adopted as our country’s national flag in a resolution passed by the Second Continental Congress.

It states: “Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

This week is also National Flag Week, and all of us here at the 59 Veterans Project are proud and honored to stand for the flag that stands for truth, justice and honor. And FREEDOM!

It is a a time when Americans reflect on the foundations of our nationโ€™s freedom and which has been an enduring symbol of the countryโ€™s ideals since its earliest days. These are moral ideas and principled laws expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. And reaffirmed by every individual who has served, fought and given their life for our country.

So, today we stand and salute “Old Glory”!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๏ธ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๏ธ

The Battle of Midway from My Navy Life!

BATTLE OF MIDWAY

THE GREATEST AC SEA BATTLE EVER!

It’s our pleasure here at My Navy Life to share this epic post from the USS George Washington (CVN 73) FB page.

It commemorates the recent anniversary of what is perhaps the greatest aircraft carrier sea battle ever fought, and greatest naval victory ever achieved by the US Navy:

The Battle of Midway!

Former US sailor Shane Steinhart served aboard the USS George Washington (CVN 73) as well as on four other US aircraft carriers. And his time and experiences aboard these giant warships was pretty awesome. But go to amazon online for My Navy Life. Then you can also experience the awesomeness!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโš“๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

The 59 Veterans Honors D-Day June 6!

1D-DAY2

ATTENTION, BRAVE VETERANS EVERYWHERE!

June 6, 1944 will remain forever known as D-Day. It is when American troops, alongside Allied forces from Canada and England, stormed the beaches of Normandy in northern France 76 years ago. To thus begin the determined and relentless march towards freeing Europe from tyranny.

Thus, it is our honor here at the 59 Veterans Project to give remembrance to this sacred date in history. And to all the veterans of the Greatest Generation who fought and served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and liberty!

We salute you! And we will forever remember this sacred date. Of this, you may be certain!ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๏ธ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Aircraft Carriers Are Big!

TITANIC

AN U.S. AC IS MORE GIGANTIC THAN THE TITANIC!

Just how big and immense is a U.S. aircraft carrier?

Well, as you can see from the accompanying pic, the RMS Titanic (famous for so many cinematic and tragic reasons) could fit atop a U.S. aircraft carrier with space to spare.

But unlike giant civilian cruise ships before and after, life and service aboard a military aircraft carrier have nothing recreational or vacational about it. It’s all work and duty, fraught with risk and danger, as so aptly depicted in Shane Steinhart’s gripping memoir “My Navy Life.” Available on amazon, it’s an exciting and unsinkable reading experience! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโš“๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
