USS Gerald R. Ford CVN78 (2015) Scale Model On Board USS Midway
Description: A model of CVN-78 which is on display at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego. I don't like putting other peoples/organizations videos on my channel without their permission, so this is the only video I've personally filmed about CVN78. Obviously it is not constructed yet and won't be finished until 2015. The air show stuff and Navy ship stuff on my youtube site is my own video works entirely. Six of the ten Nimitz-class supercarriers I have filmed myself, personally, and whenever (if) I get to the east coast and have time I'll film the other four. The link above is the best, but below are some other links where you can get more interesting unclassified information and technical specs... en.wikipedia.org www.naval-technology.com en.wikipedia.org Video www.youtube.com www.youtube.com www.youtube.com " CVN 78 Facts Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) is the Navy's first aircraft carrier to be completely designed using a 3-dimensional product model. The overall design of the ship provides the Navy a more capable ship with reduced weight to allow for future technology insertion, increased sortie generation capability, 2.5 times more electrical power and reduced cost.

The Vietnam War: Reasons for Failure - Why the US Lost
Description: In the post-war era, Americans struggled to absorb the lessons of the military intervention. As General Maxwell Taylor, one of the principal architects of the war, noted, "First, we didn't know ourselves. We thought that we were going into another Korean War, but this was a different country. Secondly, we didn't know our South Vietnamese allies... And we knew less about North Vietnam. Who was Ho Chi Minh? Nobody really knew. So, until we know the enemy and know our allies and know ourselves, we'd better keep out of this kind of dirty business. It's very dangerous." Some have suggested that "the responsibility for the ultimate failure of this policy [America's withdrawal from Vietnam] lies not with the men who fought, but with those in Congress..." Alternatively, the official history of the United States Army noted that "tactics have often seemed to exist apart from larger issues, strategies, and objectives. Yet in Vietnam the Army experienced tactical success and strategic failure... The...Vietnam War...legacy may be the lesson that unique historical, political, cultural, and social factors always impinge on the military...Success rests not only on military progress but on correctly analyzing the nature of the particular conflict, understanding the enemy's strategy, and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of allies.
