NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The U.S. Postal Service has previewed the New Year’s series of stamps highlighting NASA’s Planetary Science program, including a do-over of a famous Pluto stamp commemorating the NASA New Horizons’ historic 2015 flyby.

The Postal Service on Wednesday released a preview of its new 2016 stamps, which include an image of Pluto and the New Horizons spacecraft, eight new colorful Forever stamps of NASA images of solar system planets, a Global Forever stamp dedicated to Earth’s moon as well as another postal treat for space fans: a tribute to 50 years of Star Trek.

Pluto Explored! In 2006, NASA placed a 29-cent 1991 ‘Pluto: Not Yet Explored’ stamp in the New Horizons spacecraft. In 2015 the spacecraft carried the stamp on its history-making mission to Pluto and beyond. With this stamp, the Postal Service recognizes the first reconnaissance of Pluto in 2015 by NASA’s New Horizon mission. The souvenir sheet of four stamps contains two new stamps appearing twice. The first stamp shows an artists’ rendering of the New Horizons spacecraft and the second shows the spacecraft’s enhanced color image of Pluto taken near closest approach.

Better Business Bureau warns Phony Court Email Summons carry Malware

 

Better Business Bureau - BBBNashville, TN – In today’s society, almost anyone could be sued at any point in time, and that’s what makes a malicious malware scam so effective. Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns business and consumers to watch out for fake emails that summons you for a court appearance. If you’ve received an email stating that you are supposed to appear to court, delete it immediately.

Some scams pop up repeatedly, each time with a different twist. How do you know the summons is a fake? Courts don’t send summons via email. Legitimate court appearance notices are routinely delivered via the U.S. Postal Service, Sheriffs Department or by a process server, never by e-mail or phone calls from someone identifying them self as a court official.

Former Fort Campbell Soldier, Vietnam hero to receive Congressional Medal of Honor

 

By Elizabeth M. Collins, Soldiers Live

United States Department of Defense - DoDWashington, DC – The year was 1968. It was a year of war, of protests, of death.

It was the year Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were both assassinated. It was also the year the Vietnam War exploded into new levels of violence. And as troops poured into ‘Nam and more and more young men died — 1968 was the deadliest year of the Vietnam War — Americans watched it all from their living rooms with anger and disgust. The protest movement gained traction. Protesters spit on returning Soldiers, called them rapists and baby killers. In fact, the U.S. agreed to begin peace talks in Paris that year, due in part to the dwindling support at home.

It was also the year Santiago Erevia became a Soldier.

Former Spc. 4 Santiago Erevia reflects on his service medals and awards, which include a South Vietnamese medal, an Army Commendation Medal, a Purple Heart, a Bronze Star and the nation’s second highest award for valor, the Distinguished Service Cross. While Erevia was deployed to Vietnam in May 1969 as a radio-telephone operator with the 101st Airborne Division, he had been assigned to care for the wounded during a search-and-clear mission while the rest of his platoon penetrated an enemy defensive perimeter. After North Vietnamese soldiers attacked his position, Erevia rushed forward into heavy fire, single-handedly destroying four enemy bunkers with grenades and M-16 fire. After reviewing Erevia’s actions, President Barack Obama will award Erevia the Medal of Honor in a February 2014 ceremony. (Elizabeth M. Collins/DOD)
