It is that wonderful time of year again (10 November), where ALL DEVIL DOGS, current and former look around for a fellow Marine to say…

HAPPY 239th BIRTHDAY, MARINE!!

 

The year 2014 has brought us the 11th Anniversary of the March to Baghdad, 73rd Anniversary (7 December 1941) of the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the 13th Anniversary (11 September 2001) of  the Attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon & Field in Pennsylvania!

The events bring forward in our memories the Most Tragic and Horrific Terrorist Attacks on U.S. soil in United States history.

* The Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Joseph F. Dunford Jr, mentioned a Marine’s ”  CONFIDENCE!”

* The Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, Sgt Major Michael P. Barrett, mentioned that Marines ” Live Hard!  Train Hard!  Fight Hard!”

I whole heartedly agree with them and see them as the STANDARD OF TRUE HEROES to this Nation!

Socrates once said: “Ordinary people seem not to realize that those who really apply themselves in the right way to philosophy are directly and of their own accord preparing themselves for dying and death”.

Since 1775, the United States Marine Corps has made the world a safer and better  place to live by doing just that.

I wished to share some of my favorite quotes & terms about the United States Marines…

** President Ronald Reagan said in 1985,
>>> Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem!

* “INDOMITABLE SPIRIT “

* “UNCONDITIONAL COMPASSION”

* “FIERCE NATIONAL PRIDE”

* “UNSHAKABLE RESOLVE”

 

** RAdm.”Jay” R. Stark, USN; 10 November 1995 said,
>>> “Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean.
They’re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They’ve got really short hair and they always go for the throat.”

* “HIGHEST TRADITIONS OF THE MARINE CORPS!”

* “UNCOMMON VALOR”

* “NEVER GIVEN. ALWAYS EARNED” (ref the title MARINE)

 

** Karen Aquilar, in the U.S. Embassy; Mogadishu, Somalia, 1991 said,
>>> They told (us) to open up the Embassy, or “we’ll blow you away.” And then they looked up and saw the Marines on the roof with these really big guns, and they said in Somali, “Igaralli ahow,” which means “Excuse me, I didn’t mean it, my mistake.”

** “MARINES NEVER LEAVE A MAN (or WOMAN) BEHIND!”

** “NEVER HAVE SO MANY, DONE SO MUCH WITH NOTHING, IT IS NOW POSSIBLE TO DO ANYTHING WITH NOTHING”

* “FIRST IN THE FIGHT”

 

** Major General James Mattis (USMC), said to Iraqi tribal leaders in 2004,
>>> “I come in peace, I didn’t bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”

* “ONCE A MARINE… ALWAYS A MARINE”
 
* “MARINES DO NOT STAND DOWN UNTIL THE MISSION IS COMPLETE”

 

** Thomas E. Ricks; Making the Corps, 1997 said,
>>> “The United States Marine Corps, with it fiercely proud tradition of excellence in combat, its hallowed rituals, and its unbending code of honor, is part of the fabric of American myth.”

* “TO OBSERVE A MARINE, IS INSPIRATIONAL. TO BE A MARINE, IS EXCEPTIONAL.”

* “ALWAYS FAITHFUL” or in Latin… “SEMPER FIDELIS”

 

I can honestly say that there is no truer calling than to be a United States Marine.

There is only one thing in this world that I hold near and dear to my heart…. Family, which includes every United States Marine, in which I too am proud to claim “the Title”!

This which has always been and will continue to be one of my most cherished accomplishment.

Remembering a Fallen Brother & Hero…. LAPD officer serving in Afghanistan is killed by roadside bomb

Remembering a Fallen Brother & Hero… LAPD officer serving in Afghanistan is killed by roadside bomb

SWAT team member Robert J. Cottle, a Marine Corps reservist, is the department’s first member to die in post-9/11 combat. He previously had served two tours in Iraq.

Fallen Marine SgtMaj / LAPD SWAT Officer Robert J. (RJ) Cottle

 

The Los Angeles Police Department on Thursday mourned its first officer to be killed in combat in Afghanistan after a roadside bomb took the life of a highly regarded SWAT team member.

Marine Corps Reserve Sgt. Maj. Robert J. Cottle, 45, and a 19-year-old Marine were killed while traveling in the Marja area of southern Afghanistan’s Helmand province, on the Pakistani border. The region has been the focus of an intense U.S.-led offensive against Taliban forces, said LAPD Capt. John Incontro, who oversees SWAT operations.

 

The funeral service for LAPD Officer Robert J. Cottle, killed March 24 in Afghanistan while on Marine Reserve duty, is held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles.

 

The Marines’ armored vehicle struck a roadside bomb Wednesday, killing Cottle and Lance Cpl. Rick Centanni and seriously wounding two others, according to police sources and media accounts.

A veteran of two tours in Iraq, Cottle had deployed to Afghanistan in August and was scheduled to return home this summer. He leaves a wife and 8-month-old daughter.

More than two dozen LAPD officers serve as active military reservists. The department recruits many officers from the military, and leaves for military duty are routine. But until now, the LAPD had lost no one to conflict in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Lanky, blue-eyed and brown-haired, Cottle “loved being a police officer,” said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.

Cottle became an officer in 1990 and joined the elite SWAT unit six years later, Beck said. He called Cottle “an effective and compassionate” officer and “a great human being.”

He was “almost the absolute stereotype Marine,” said LAPD Capt. Phil Tingirides. “He was one who talked about God and country and he really meant it.”

Cottle grew up in Whittier and San Diego, said his sister Bonnie Roybal, 49, of Whittier. As a child, he was bowlegged and had to wear leg braces for more than two years, but he grew into an avid runner and athlete, she said.

“He was made fun of as a kid, and he ended up proving them wrong,” Roybal said.

A high-energy teenager, his rambunctious exploits and unimpressive grades led him first to military-style camp, then to the Marines at age 18, and finally to the LAPD, she said.

“He didn’t have any pretenses or airs. With Robert, what you saw was what you got,” Roybal said.

That direct gaze and knack for effortless conversation were traits that served him well as a police officer. But he never lost the taste for adrenaline that first brought him to the LAPD.

“My brother has always lived his life on the edge. He was into risk-taking, wanted to live an extraordinary life” — and did, his sister said.

Cottle’s LAPD assignments took him to the Hollywood Division’s vice squad, the Southeast Division in the early 1990s — one of the most violent locales in the nation at that time — then to a tactical dive team trained to combat terrorist attacks at the Port of Los Angeles.

“He was the kind of guy who, when he spoke, you listened. He only spoke when it was important,” said LAPD Cmdr. Rick Jacobs.

But if Cottle was “the most serious guy when the situation called for it,” he could also be light-hearted, said LAPD Sgt. Steve Weaver, a longtime friend.

He shifted instantly from solemn military bearing to being “the funniest guy in the room,” Weaver said. He made colleagues laugh “just from the inflection of his voice.”

A mix of law enforcement and military dedication suffused Cottle’s life. He peppered his speech with Marine lingo, and wore Marine T-shirts with his LAPD friends. But on base, among his military friends, he switched to LAPD gear.

Cottle surprised his family by marrying at 43, shifting his focus from constant training and weekend ice hockey games to family.

Fellow SWAT officers recalled a friend who stood out for the intensity he brought to the job, and the care he showed for other officers.

Incontro remembered the night in 2008 when another SWAT officer, Randall Simmons, was killed during a prolonged standoff. After Simmons was rushed to a hospital, Cottle went from one SWAT officer to the next, helping to calm them and keep them focused on the still-unfolding situation, Incontro said.

Cottle was a sergeant major in the Marine Corps Reserve — the top enlisted position — with the 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, based at Camp Pendleton. Among his citations was the Combat Action Ribbon for having been under fire and returning fire.

At Camp Pendleton, his death was announced Thursday during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a $13-million facility to train Marines to detect improvised explosive devices.

With emotion, Brig. Gen. Rex McMillian, deputy commanding general of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, praised Cottle as a fine Marine who had shown leadership in a variety of assignments since joining the Marine Corps in 1983.

In addition to his wife, daughter and sister, Cottle is survived by his father, Kenneth Cottle of Villa Park; and mother, Janet Deck of Clearlake Oaks, Calif

I hope that this idea to HELP & SUPPORT Our Military Veterans, especially the ones returning from combat continues and grows to help those who served to protect us!

 

The Superior Court of Maricopa County founded its Veterans Court in 2011 in order to address the growing number of veterans involved in the criminal justice system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you being watched … by your phone?

Are you being watched … by your phone?

The TV show Person of Interest says everyone with a mobile phone is a target for snoops. Is that true?

 

Computer World
by Mike Elgan

Computerworld –

“You are being watched.”

Those are the first words uttered in the opening monologue of a really cool TV show called Person of Interest on CBS. The show’s Season 2 premier airs this week on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 9 p.m. or 8 p.m., depending on where you live.

“Person of Interest,” developed by J. J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan, is about a mysterious billionaire software genius who built an anti-terrorism surveillance supercomputer for the government but left himself a back door for the system to feed him the Social Security numbers of people in New York City who will be involved in a murder, which the supercomputer can predict.

He doesn’t know whether those people will be the victims or the murderers, but he uses the information to try to stop the crimes before they happen. To do this, he hires a former special forces soldier-turned-CIA super-ninja to go out and beat up the bad guys and save the innocent.

The show is about a lot of things. It’s a detective thriller, a bromance, a shoot-em-up action show. It’s about espionage, government snooping and machine consciousness. But mostly, it’s a show about cellphones.

Specifically, Person of Interest highlights the many ways to hack, track, listen in on and use smartphones to monitor people.

Characters in the movie routinely “clone” cellphones, listen in remotely via the microphones in phones, track people in real time via the GPS technology in their handsets, “Bluejack” phones, and download contacts and other information wirelessly.

One character has a supercomputer; the other has super-ninja fighting skills. But their most effective superpowers are their mobile phone skills.

How realistic is all this? Let’s have a look.

Mobile phone cloning

Cloning enables a phone to make and receive calls that appear to be coming from another phone.

Cloning used to be a lot easier. And in some countries, such as India, it’s still a widespread problem.

In the old days, you needed only to get a couple of unique identifying numbers from the target phone and then enter them on a secret menu on the clone phone.

These days, it’s very difficult. If you want to get the requisite secret identifying numbers, your best bet is to hack a cellular carrier’s database or use expensive, specialized equipment to snatch the numbers from the airwaves (a technique that also requires physical access to the SIM card).

For the petty crooks who used to clone phones in order to sell phones that could make free calls (billed to the victim), cloning is an industry in decline.

Besides, the “benefits” of cloning are largely available through other means, such as free VoIP calls, and some of the techniques I detail below.

Organizations with extensive hacking resources can, and probably do, clone phones. But the ability to clone one phone via another quickly and wirelessly is not possible as it is depicted in Person of Interest.

Tracking people in real time

Phone apps, such as SpyBubble, Mobile Spy, FlexiSpy, StealthGenie and others work invisibly in the background and handle several types of espionage, including real-time location tracking. After the software is installed on an individual’s phone, you can watch on a map as he roams around town.

But these apps need to be physically installed on a phone. To the best of my knowledge, they can’t be installed remotely, though it’s possible that the user could be tricked into installing software with similar functions. This could be done by spoofing a legitimate app, for example.

However, a spy organization or government agency wouldn’t need to install an app on your phone to track your location. They only need to gain access to the location tracking that your wireless carriers already do.

Carriers already collect this data and sell it to anyone with the money to buy it. And they routinely provide location data to law enforcement agencies that request it.

Listening through phone microphones

In Person of Interest, the stars use other people’s phones as remote microphones for listening in on conversations — not just while they’re on calls, but even when they’re not using their phones.

That form of eavesdropping, like phone cloning, used to be a lot easier. Nowadays, I know of no viable generally available software tools that make it possible to listen through a phone’s microphone when it’s not being used for a call.

That said, all of the standard mobile phone spy tools listed above claim that they offer the ability to listen in on calls as they’re taking place.

Reading text messages remotely

SpyBubble, Mobile Spy and other tools also let you grab text messages, both incoming and outgoing. The messages can also be made available to law enforcement agencies by carriers — and, presumably, they’d also be available to any hacker who can access the carriers’ databases.

Downloading data

Apps like SpyBubble and Mobile Spy also deliver a large number of data types from victims’ smartphones, including complete call and SMS logs, all contacts, all email, all URLs visited on a browser (including search queries, which are displayed in URLs), all photos and videos taken with phones, and more.

If cheesy apps like those can do it, you can be sure that sophisticated hackers, spy agencies, organized crime groups and others can do it, too.

Bluejacking

Bluejacking is the use of Bluetooth wireless technology to either send messages or files to a phone, or connect to it in other ways. The benefit of Bluejacking is that the connection isn’t conveyed through a carrier, so it’s harder to track. And it’s anonymous.

Bluejacking is easy. In fact, you can download Bluejacking software from the Google Play store, or from any number of other sites.

Some software lets you find “hidden” open Bluetooth connections. And you can typically send messages, pictures or even sounds.

Although Bluejacking is primarily used in sophomoric pranks, it can also be used for social engineering, which is one of the things the characters in Person of Interest use it for.

For example, you could send fake error messages to make someone believe his phone is malfunctioning. You could then offer to fix it for him and then install spyware once you have access to the phone.

The technology is easy to use. But a skilled hacker is also skilled at tricking people, and that’s the real reason Bluejacking is such a threat.

The bottom line is that the phone hacking activity depicted on TV is exaggerated. The characters in Person of Interest remotely crack, take over and track phones far more quickly and easily than is possible in real life.

However, everything they do in the show is possible in principle, under the right circumstances. And in fact, nearly all the hacker talk and technical jargon used in Person of Interest is shockingly realistic for network TV, which usually dumbs down such language.

More importantly, I believe the show provides a valuable service by introducing the public to the kinds of things that are possible with a phone — making them aware of the fact that a modern smartphone is, above all, the Mother of All Surveillance Devices.

All mobile phone owners should know that they’re carrying a microphone, a camera, a tracking device and an automatic logging tool that records their electronic interactions with other people, as well as other activities. And they should know that these devices can convey that information without their knowledge.

Are you being watched, tracked and hacked right now? Probably not. But it’s impossible to know for sure. In fact, the only way to be 100% sure that you’re not being spied on by your phone is to get rid of it. In the meantime, watch a few episodes of Person of Interest. It’s a great show, and it could give you a healthy dose of paranoia about what your mobile phone is theoretically capable of.
