Sometimes MREs are a lifesaver. Like when you’re on Day 10 of a field op, or stuck in the middle of Afghanistan with just a bunsen burner, and a rock…or something. But they aren’t what you’d want gracing the tablewhen it comes to Thanksgiving with your family.

President Donald Trump tweeted out the logo for the brand-new U.S. Space Force on Friday, presenting it as a collaboration between "Great Military Leaders, designers and others."

The Navy is investigating dozens of videos of service members changing in a bathroom which were then shared on the website PornHub, according to a NBC News report.
According to the report, an agent from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service found the videos on PornHub earlier this month. The videos, which have since been taken down, show civilians, sailors and Marines, some of whom have visible name tapes.
