• My name is Adolph. Do you think I'll have a hard time with a US Military security clearance?

    People in school always called me Hitler. No big deal. Guess it made me tougher. But now, in the work world, people don't throw punches at me. They just give me that look. No big deal if I don't make it there. I can do something else. Just wondering if anyone else is named Adolph or similar.

    Best answer: The battle of Midway.
    The issue was that the Allied had deciphered the Japanese secret code and knew what to expect and when. Comes Midway, and the US naval forces were located at the right place, and with a bit of luck, obliterated 4 Japanese fleet carriers. And without an aircraft carrier to land back on, all their planes engaged in that battle were also lost, along with their pilots.
    After that, any Japanese naval force sent for a specific operation would be met with a larger US naval task force, and the industrial production of Essex class carriers (3 commissioned in 1942, 6 commissioned in 1943, 7 in 1944) meant that the US was producing a fleet equal to the whole of Japan's at the beginning of the war each year and a half.
    On top of that, the British were also producing their own carriers, at a rate comparable to that of Japan's.

    When Japan lost three ship, they could only replace one.
    When the allied lost one, they replaced it with 3.
    It was just impossible to sustain.

    Sure, the Zero was a super aircraft, but it was matched and bettered by the Hellcat. Japan produced almost 11000 Zero. The US produced over 12000 Wildcat. And over 12000 Corsair (admittedly, some were built after the war ended). And even if the earlier Hellcat was slightly inferior in range, speed and maneuverability, the fact is the rugged Hellcat could very often limp home after being damaged in batte, at worst returning "spare parts" and a more experienced pilot, while the Zero was rather fragile and would be a total loss including the pilot.

    By the way, the military strategists in Japan knew that the war could not be won if it lasted more than a year, their idea was that, after losing forces at the Pearl Harbor attack, the US would negotiate a cease fire; thinking that the anti-war movement in the US would prevent them from entering the conflict with all their might.
    They were evidently completely wrong.

  • Why did Battleships, for all their glory and hype and engineering, fight in so few wars ?

    The wooden sailing warship. Fought all wars from the 1300s, to the American civil war.

    The wooden sailing warship. Fought all wars from the 1300s, to the American civil war. The modern warship types, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, corvettes, submarines, and aircraft carriers fought in all wars since the war in Vietnam. But the Battleship is limited to the Spanish American War, World War One, and World War 2. Reasons why the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and the Desert Storm does not count, is because.... After WW2, the USA was the only user of the Battleship. No new battleships were constructed after 1944, the Battleship that was used in Korea, in Vietnam and in Desert Storm were World War 2 era Battleships. Neither in Korea, nor in Vietnam, nor in Desert Storm was the Battleship the front line, Capital weapon system. In Desert Storm, the Battleship that was used, was refitted with modern warship weaponry.

    Best answer: 1. It is possible to go from a reserve component to an active component, but it is extremely difficult and very rarely happens.
    2. No. The only way that a degree gets enlisted any extra money is if they come in with a degree and start out at a higher pay grade.
    3. Most US bases are in the US and therefore most servicemembers (including infantrymen and Sailors) are in the US. Most overseas forces are stationed in Germany, Italy, Japan, and Korea, with smaller numbers in a few other countries. Most deployments are to the middle east.
    4. Once done with initial training, most people work some sort of normal duty schedule while at home station, with extra hours put in for major training events and exercises. People work longer hours when deployed (including Sailors out on a ship).
    5. They have base housing, schools, and child care centers for a reason. Most people in the military eventually find someone to go out and procreate with.
