Mississippi Threatening New Orleans With Worst Flood Since 1927

May 13, 2011: Steven John Hibbs & Kimberly Jones / The Tonka Report (TTR) – May 13, 2011

 May 13, 2011: Kimberly Jones’ Email

I really never know how much news in New Orleans actually gets out of New Orleans.

You might want to do a little of your research magic. The short version of a long story is the Mississippi is about to dump much wrath on Louisiana, mainly between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

The special part of this is the way the Army Corp of Engineers are once again being allowed to play Gods. They know what is headed for us and they know what they have to do to keep New Orleans from being totally destroyed. They opened the Bonnet Carrie spillway on Monday and I was there in person. I have a special relationship with the spillway and I had to watch them turn it into a massive lake. Sad, but necessary.

Now they need to open the Morganza spillway closer to Baton Rouge and the CoE is talking about it being a question. As if there is any question what so ever if they do not open it.

Here is their apparent issue……

The Morganza Spillway was opened for the first and only time in 1973 to relieve pressure from the Old River Control Structure (ORCS). [2][3] The spillway received minor scouring and slight damage to the stilling basin. After the 1973 flood, the structure was restored to its original condition.

In 2008, a flood caused portions of the levee at the spillway to deteriorate and sent floodwaters into cropland located within the floodway.

[4] It is because of this damage to the levées around the spillway and the extent to which the structure itself was undermined by just the ’73 test that the Morganza Spillway has never been opened since, though it would have been useful during several subsequent years to relieve pressure on the Old River Control Structure.

Studies by the Army Corps of Engineers after the test determined that once opened, it would likely never close again, and could be ripped from its footings, allowing the Mississippi River to jump its banks and flow primarily through the Atchafalaya Basin.

While this would leave New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and the Port of New Orleans practically high and dry, the Atchafalaya Basin would become the the main artery of the Mississippi River below Morganza and several cities along the bucolic Atchafalaya River would be flooded and a new delta would begin forming immediately. The failure of the Morganza structure would be disastrous beyond imagination for the residents of south Louisiana and international commerce.

I can speak volumes on what is going on but I know you like to see for yourself.

Here is our most recent “update”:

=======================================================

May 13, 2011: David Usborne, US Editor / The Independent – May 13, 2011

The flood is expected to crest next Thursday at Vicksburg, where the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers meet, at a level easily higher than in the Great Flood of 1927…

The bursting Mississippi was threatening last night to submerge still more farmland, homes and even towns as an enormous swell of water fed by spring rains and snow-melt forged its way to the Gulf of Mexico, unleashing some of the worst flooding since the Great Depression.

While some towns already soaked by the river’s wrath further to the north – including Memphis in Tennessee and Cairo in Illinois – were yesterday beginning the task of cleaning up as water levels begin to fall, the worst is still to come for low-lying areas of the Mississippi Delta and Louisiana.

In Louisiana, which has in recent years suffered Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill, engineers were getting ready to begin gradually opening sluices on the giant Morganza Spillway just north of the state capital, Baton Rouge. The 5,000ft span of gates has been opened only once before in history.

It is not a decision that will be taken lightly, however. While diverting some of the river’s fury through the gates means lowering the risk that levees will be overtopped in Baton Rouge and further downriver in New Orleans, it will mean deliberately flooding vast areas of the state west of the river and close to the coast.

With the first gates likely to be opened at the weekend or early next week, entire cities may be forced to evacuate in the path of the escaping water, including Houma, where the BP clean-up and spill-response teams are housed, and Morgan City. As many as 13,000 buildings, 25,000 people and 3 million acres of land are likely to be impacted, the authorities said.

The situation across parts of the Mississippi Delta was already dire last night, with as many as 600 homes already touched or swamped by muddy water filled with debris and snakes. Residents were on high alert in the city of Vicksburg, where the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers merge. The flood is expected to crest there next Thursday at a level easily higher than was seen in the so-called Great Flood of 1927.

At Natchez, Mississippi, a little further downstream, the high-water mark stood yesterday at 58.3ft. That was already higher than the 53.04ft mark set in 1937, another year of historic flooding along the river.

Residents have already abandoned their homes in the town of Tunica Cutoff, Mississippi, which last night was entirely cut off leading some in the area to predict it would be swept off the map entirely. “We don’t know from day to day,” said Lee Sherwin, 77, who fled Tunica Cutoff and is in a Red Cross shelter. “We don’t know if we are going to want to go back or even if we can go back. I’ve never in my life run into a situation like this, but we are living with it day by day.”

Already some economists are warning that this year’s spring floods are likely to cause damage worth between $2bn and $4bn. “Crop loss estimates are definitely around $800m for Mississippi alone,” said John Michael Riley, an economics professor at Mississippi State University. The Great Flood of 1927 was estimated to have cost the US about $230m, the equivalent of $2.8bn today.

The final toll will not be known until the crest finally reaches the Mississippi’s mouth in just under two weeks. And much will depend on what happens at the Morganza Spillway and also how well levees and flood-protection walls elsewhere hold up.

There was concern about levees protecting low-lying communities on the Yazoo close to Vicksburg. Were they to fail, a wall of water could inundate large areas of the Mississippi Delta, already one of the most impoverished regions of the United States. Hailey Barbour, the Governor of Mississippi, urged anyone who thought their home might be at risk to get out as fast as possible. “More than anything else, save your life and don’t put at risk other people who might have to come in and save your lives,” he said.

Governor Barbour also raised concern about the small numbers of families in the region who have neither phones nor electricity. “They are a tiny number but we must find them,” he said.

Cotton-picking and other farms still provide most of the employment in the Delta. Nine of the 11 counties that touch the Mississippi River in the state have poverty rates at least double the national average of 13.5 per cent, according to the US Census Bureau.

While no formal decision had been made on opening sluice-gates at the Morganza Spillway, Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said that people should assume that that would happen and anyone living in the path of the water once it was unleashed should evacuate the area as soon as possible.

Thousands Fleeing In Advance Of Spillway Opening

More Fake Photos Emerge In Government’s Osama Bin Laden Farce

leave a comment »

May 7, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – May 7, 2011

This entire Osama Bin Laden farce is beyond absurd at this point. Here is yet another photoshopped image, this time of his wife’s passport.

If this is the best the government can produce to continue this fairytale lie, this country is in serious trouble, and is unravelling faster than this outlandish attempt to sell the Osama Bin Dead fantasy.

Everything about this fraud being purported by our criminal government has turned out to be a lie, from the admittedly staged “situation room” photo to Bin Laden’s wife being killed by throwing herself in the line of fire.

Habeas Corpus! Show me the body! Where is the proof? Floating with the fishes at the bottom of the Arabian Sea?

Habeas Corpus! Show me the pictures of the body! Again, where is the proof? But of course that will never happen if this is the best image these incompetent traitors can produce. Remember the first death photo released of Osama Bin Dead was an admitted photoshopped fake, as was the latest Obama “birth certificate”!

They can’t produce any evidence because Osama Bin Dead Laden has been dead since December 2001. This latest fake photo appears in its original photoshopped form in the following article at the Daily Mail…

Obama Birth Certificate: Discrepencies Challenge The Authenticity

with one comment

April 28, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 28, 2011

What a media circus concerning this obviously fake document. It took me less than half an hour tonight to find glaring discrepencies with the authenticity of Barack Hussein Obama’s so-called long form birth certificate from Hawaii that was suddenly released on April 27.

In the photograph of the computer generated document, Obama’s father’s race/color is listed as “African”. There was no such term as “African” used in 1961. It should and would have been entered in as either “Kenyan” or “Negro” (black).

This in turn opens up another can of worms, first of which, is that it lists Obama’s father’s origin of birth as “Kenya”, which means his father, as a Kenyan national was a British citizen.

If the father listed on the document is indeed Obama’s father, Obama is a dual citizen, thus according to The Natural Born Citizen Clause of the US Constitution, he is ineligible to become president, as both parents must be US citizens at the time of birth.

Also, Kenya was not called “Kenya” back in 1961 at the time of Obama’s birth…  It was the British East Africa Protectorate. It was not known as “Kenya” until 1963.” (courtesy: WRH)

The document also lists the hospital’s name as Kapiolaini Maternity and Gynecological Hospital… “It did not change its name to the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until it merged with the Kapiolani hospital system in 1978.” (courtesy: WRH)

It was the merger in 1978 of the Kapiolani Maternity Home established in 1890 and the Kauikeolani Childrens Hospital established in 1909. This in and by itself indicates that the document could not possibly have been generated in 1961, and thus it is not an original.

Look closely at (Stanley) Ann Dunham Obama’s signature… Did she forget her full legal name? Have you? And note there is no signature from a doctor. Also, the mother didn’t sign the document until 3 days later, with the “attendant” signing it the day after that. My birth certificate in 1960 was signed by both my mother and the doctor on the actual day of birth.

Lastly, at the bottom of this computer generated document it is dated “April 25, 2011”. Notice that it states that it is a “COPY OR ABSTRACT”. This is from a registrar certifying that this document is nothing more than a copy of a copy. It is not the original birth certificate. If it were, it would have the raised seal of the state of Hawaii stamped on the document. This is a forgery, and a poorly conceived one at that… Why?

Proof Obama’s “Long Form Certificate of Birth” is Forged

Barack Obama On Birth Certificate – April 27, 2011

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This document is a complete fraud in order to hide who Barack Obama’s real father is… Frank Marshall Davis, and to obfuscate the adoption issue by Soetoro in Indonesia… – SJH

‘I Know What’s Coming Down The Pike. And Inherently, So Do You’

with 4 comments

April 22, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 22, 2011

For the past 12 years I have been sounding the alarm. Not that I wasn’t always a skeptic of government, educational, religious, and media propaganda, because I was.

I remember in grade school back in the 1960s having to “duck and tuck” during school drills, like that was going to save us from a Russian nuclear attack?

Ask the Japanese how that worked out in Hiroshima and Nagasaki… It was a joke, and mass murder.

In 6th grade, I challenged my so-called teacher concerning the “Cold War” against the big bad bear, and asked… “Shouldn’t we be more concerned with China?” Needless to say, his response was a blank stare of propagandized state brainwashing ignorance.

Actually, even at that age I knew inherently who the real enemy was. It was, and still is, within the halls of Congress, the Supreme Court, Executive Branch, and the banks and secret societies who really run this Houdini side-show of macabre theater.

Nevertheless, I still joined the US Marine Corps and did my service honorably, albeit I was a relentless target of my superiors. I had the mind, body, and leadership to be one of their superstars as they pushed hard to put the reins on me. But I had a mind of my own, and a spirit that was free, and one that still is to this day.

Thus, I am not broken morally or spiritually. I’ve murdered nobody in the name of faux America, I’ve murdered nobody in the name of their false christ, and I am to this day free of that guilt and their crimes. I am not beholden to their cryptic system, because I actually understand it and refuse to play ball under their Orwellian and Luciferian rules.

However, as time and events accelerate, there is a division, a quickening and a blinding, of what is created reality and what is actually the truth. As a result, I find myself not only angry and frustrated with the illusions and ignorance of people, but faltering in my own hope as a result of my energy and knowledge wafting off into space. That is the sign to consider resigning. I know what’s coming down the pike. And inherently, so do you.

Peace and God bless… No Fear!!

Despotism And Democracy – Democracy Vs Republic – Two Videos

leave a comment »

April 8, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 8, 2011

As you watch the first video produced circa 1945 by Encyclopaedia Britannica Films Inc., it is quite easy for those aware to pick out the propaganda in this cleverly disguised “anti-propaganda” short film from Yale (Skull and Bones) University.

But even its premise is a lie from the beginning. This country was never based on a democratic system by the founding fathers, understanding the fatality of such. It was founded as a Republic, not a democracy, remember that! 

Watch these two videos and see if you can see the deception in the first video, and then see the difference between a democracy and a Republic as you watch the second video…

Woody Guthrie: 1913 Massacre – True Story Of Labor Vs The Corp

leave a comment »

February 28, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – February 28, 2011

This piece was cobbled together by TTR… – SJH

The Italian Hall Disaster (sometimes referred to as the 1913 Massacre) is a tragedy that occurred on December 24, 1913 in Calumet, Michigan.

Seventy-three men, women, and children, mostly striking mine workers and their families, were crushed to death in a stampede when someone falsely yelled “fire” at a crowded Christmas party.

Background

The Calumet and Hecla Mining Company (“C&H”) was formed from the consolidation of the Calumet and Hecla mining companies in 1871. C&H was the single largest copper mining company in Michigan’s copper country, which includes Copper Island. One of the longest strikes in the copper country took place in 1913, and included all the C&H mines.

The Western Federation of Miners first established a local in the area in 1908 but it wasn’t until 1913 that the WFM had a large enough membership to effectively strike. At the time, there were perhaps 15,000 men working in the mines and the WFM claimed 9,000 of them as members. The membership voted in favor of demanding union recognition from management, and asking “for a conference with the employers to adjust wages, hours, and working conditions in the copper district of Michigan.”

The membership also voted to “declare a strike” if management refused to “grant a conference or concessions.” After the vote was held, the WFM sent letters to the mines demanding the conference; the mine managers refused the request and the strike was called on July 23, 1913. The strike would not end until April, 1914; the miners and the mines were still at a standoff at Christmas, 1913, in a strike that was then five months old.

The Disaster

On Christmas Eve many of the striking miners and their families had gathered for a Christmas party sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Western Federation of Miners.[4] It is estimated that there were over five hundred people at the party, which was held on the second floor of Calumet’s Italian Hall. A steep stairway was the only way to the second floor, although there was a poorly-marked fire escape on one side of the building and ladders down the back of the building which could only be reached by climbing through the windows.

The tragedy began when someone yelled “Fire!”; there was none. However, people panicked and rushed for the stairs. In the ensuing melee, seventy-three people (including fifty-nine children) were killed. To date there has been much debate about who cried “fire” and why. The most common theory is that “fire” was called out by an anti-union ally of mine management in order to disrupt the party…

Placed in the corner of an old bookshelf
Covered with cobwebs and dust from the years
Forgotten prose near Shakespeare and Poe
Lay a book of poetry bound in black leather

Authored by One through the quills of many
Ancient writings within guilded pages
The Sword of Light passed down through the ages

Published for those who believe and rejoice
The end of the world’s satanic devise
A promise to those who make the wise choice
Eternal life by the grace of Christ

Pray for the people who pled to not know
The Word of God in the Bible they owned
Never once read by their eyes now dead

Trembling where they go…

We Are All In The Crosshairs: Destruction Of American Civilization

with 2 comments

January 13, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – January 13, 2011

The most oft asked question I get after revealing the information to people as to what is really happening in this world is this: What can we do about it?

My answer is this: Get your spiritual house in order. After that, the usual obvious things such as are pertinent to survival in a complete economic collapse, subsequent implementation of a police state including martial law, and impending world war. All are currently on the globalist’s agenda and verily imminent as the web continues to spin.

The denial and optimism I encounter are counter productive to the truth of the situation we all are now faced with. People across this country are jobless, homeless, hopeless, and on the cusp of desperation. As a consequence, those with a sense of false security are falling deeper into the trap of deception.

This in turn is manifesting into a deeper divide between those already ruined and those who believe they are actually immune to the total onslaught of our civilization. This is not only exasperating the situation, it is perpetuating the lie as the wheels of the elite barrel directly over all who are in their way.

The seemingly rich are living in a dream world. Those who have already lost their jobs and homes are the actual reality. Why? The rich are not rich at all. Their money is as worthless as the paper it’s printed on. Their property is in reality, not truly their own, as is evident when ever this criminal government deems otherwise.

Meanwhile, the elite utilize the manufactured economic collapse in order to seduce the youth to enlist in the military. There are no other opportunities other than to risk life and limb to fight in illegal wars of genocide for the confiscation of resources and land that by all rights, is not theirs, and never was. Yet, what are the options? Crime?

Ironically, those committing the most grievous of crimes are those in the councils of government, banking, and the worldwide corporatocracy, yet are rarely, if ever, held accountable for their atrocities. Where is the outcry from the people? Have they all been seduced by the magic of Satan?

And thus I say, get your spiritual house in order first. Then maybe, God willing, we can defeat the forces designed to destroy us all: rich and poor; black, white or brown; Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian or whatever… We are all in the crosshairs.

America Through The Looking Glass: Journey On A Greyhound Bus

with 5 comments

January 8, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – January 8, 2011

Rather than get porno scanned or sexually molested by the TSA, I decided to take a Greyhound bus cross-country. This was the first leg of my four part 5000 mile journey… I was shocked at how many people were traveling by bus nearly a week after the New Year. The stations were packed, there were numerous delays, buses were sold out, and extra buses and drivers had to be called in at nearly every stop in order to accommodate the overload in what Greyhound continually apologized for by saying it was due to the end of the holiday travel season.

However, with the exception of a group of soldiers whom I’ll mention later, not one person ever mentioned to me, nor did I overhear anyone say, that they were returning home from the holidays. They were all going somewhere. Did they opt to ride instead of fly due to the TSAs unconstitutional police state tactics? Because the savings to take Greyhound were insignificant compared to flying at the time.

Anyway, having crisscrossed America countless times, I couldn’t help but notice on this trip just how rundown and seemingly desolate so many of the cities and towns appeared to be that we had either passed by while on the highway or when we actually stopped in a town that was a scheduled stop. It eerily reminded me of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand… “Who is John Galt?”

Maybe part of it was that I was not flying at 30,000 feet or preoccupied with actually driving myself, and maybe it was also due to the fact that there was no snow anywhere and thus everything and everywhere was a dreary and brown painting of bare desolation.

If my recollection serves me correctly, this may have been the only time I had ever traveled between the upper Midwest and the far Southeast in January and saw no snow along the entire trip, even though it was unseasonably cold all the way down to Florida. But there was more to it than that.

The highways were typically strewn with litter, mostly old food packages, tossed out coffee and soda cups, plastic bags, beer cans and broken bottles which all stood out on the barren landscape like beacons of poverty atop the lifeless terrain. And every so often a handmade cross with a name written on it had been erected marking the death of yet another unfortunate motorist along the roadside.

Dilapidated billboards advertising their outdated products or services from days long past left a lasting image of a once thriving country now succumbing to decay, as did the countless empty shops and store fronts in the strip malls along the way.

On occasion there was a glimmer of hope with fleeting signs of some semblance of a bygone American quality of life as I noticed a spattering of golfers hitting the links, which more resembled poorly designed martian landscapes in a low-budget sci-fi movie in the January emptiness of vacant dormancy.

Heading up into the carved out mountains of Tennessee showed evidence of once great engineering feats from decades ago. A time when America still actually created and built things. Today this country only builds insurmountable debt and poverty while creating nothing but unending wars and destruction.

The mountains were also surprisingly absent of any snow, even as giant icicles dangled from the cliff sides as we passed through the man-made canyons as potholes continually rocked the bus with bone jarring jolts. Another sign of perpetual decay in an America that once stood as a pillar of progress and ingenuity. A country the world round that others once strived to emulate, is now a skeleton of greed.

The sky is no longer the deep dark blue of my youth, but rather the all too typical milky white haziness we have all become so accustomed to as chemtrails slashed the sky with their poison that were clearly visible literally every mile along the way until the leaking horizon kissed the ocher earth.

The stars overhead in Georgia however were unusually bright, until you looked down to 45 degrees from the horizon where they disappeared behind the manufactured wax paper that now shrouds the atmosphere in a ghostly white. The bus rolled on… “I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera.”

On one of the buses there was a group of Army recruits returning from the holidays to Ft. Benning outside of Atlanta to complete their basic training. While having a smoke at one of the stops somewhere in Tennessee, or maybe it was Kentucky, I told them about the notorious School of Assassins (School of America’s) at Ft. Benning.

The young men, most just boys really, looked at me sheepishly and repeated a phrase that all of us who have served in the military have heard before… “We don’t know anything. We’re on a need to know basis.” I laughed, told them I was a former Marine and that I understood completely.

I then went on to say that I wanted them all to remember one thing during their tour of duty, “Remember the oath you all took… to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against both foreign and domestic enemies.”

I then said, “There’s a lot of bad guys running this country.” Most were silent, but a few chimed in in unison and said, “We know.”

They were all seemingly good kids, much like I was at that age when I joined, but if deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, they will invariably return vastly different, if at all, than the innocence I encountered during our journey that day.

While traveling through Florida I engaged in a fascinating conversation with a gentleman who admitted to being a Master Mason after I brought up Freemasonry and the Illuminati while in another conversation about the Bible with someone else. I was pleasantly surprised with his knowledge concerning the Masonic and Illuminati symbology on the back of the dollar bill, as well as many other aspects of secret societies and the New World Order.

We talked for hours while several others listened intently as we discussed everything from Project Blue Beam to the Bible to the Federal Reserve to the slaughter of Palestinians by Israel and a number of other related topics as the bus rolled on from Ocala to Orlando at three something in the morning. I hope a seed was planted amongst them who were listening. That is how liberty grows.

Finally, in Orlando, America reared its ugly police state fascism during a four hour layover before heading to Melbourne. I had just traveled via Greyhound through six states, totaling 31 hours at that point with no searches or violations of my Fourth Amendment.

I walked in the station from the bus platform, put the bulk of my luggage at my next departing gate, then walked past two gun toting rent-a-cops searching incoming passengers from the front entrance and walked out to the smoking area with my laptop and another small back pack.

I had a smoke and walked past the people in line being searched, since I had obviously already been in the “secure” zone, when the shortest of the two rent-a-cops told me to stop and go to the end of the line to be searched.

I said that I had just walked out to have a smoke, when he repeated in a contemptuous tone to get back to the end of the line. Needless to say, after 31 hours of riding buses, I was incensed at this point. I waited nearly 20 minutes before it was my turn to empty my pockets into a tray, place my laptop and bag on a table, then stand spread eagle as I was wanded both front and back, then asked to remove my hat.

The shorter of the two rent-a-cops, who was the officer in charge of this Stasi checkpoint, had that typical psychopathic attitude of superiority burning in his napoleanic eyes. He rifled through my personal belongings in both bags, then checked the contents of the tray, including looking inside my cigarette pack.

Afterward, when nothing of interest was found and my bags and the tray were handed back to me, I asked this little prick, “So, are you going to do this every time I go out to have a smoke during the next four hours?” He responded flatly, “Yes.”

I then said in a rather authoritative tone, “So what you’re telling me is that I can’t smoke while I wait here for the next four hours until my bus arrives without getting searched every time I come in… Correct?”

“No, go ahead and smoke. We’ll just leave you out there until the end when we’re done searching everyone else…Do you have any knives?” “Nope.” I answered just as flatly as he had earlier. “Do you have any drugs?” “Nope.” I took my belongings and walked away letting him clearly know by my glare of contempt and disgust that I was not at all pleased with this unconstitutional treatment.

This blatant violation of my Fourth Amendment happened two more times during the course of four hours with this little jackboot Nazi piece of shit searching me again and again each time I came back in from having a smoke.

The last time I was out smoking, I had just returned from getting a cup of coffee across the street, when this simpleton with a badge and a gun came up behind me outside and said, “I don’t believe I checked your ticket.” I said, “What? You saw it twice when I put it in the tray.”

He said, “I just did a ticket check of all the passengers inside and I did not check yours.” At this point I just pulled out my ticket and handed it to him. He inspected it, handed it back and turned to go inside where I was then promptly searched for the third time when I re-entered the station.

During the entire four hours I was inside the Orlando bus station, I just glared at him as he would periodically march around the area with all the self importance of an SS officer while always glancing over my way. So, I thought I would have a little fun…

I kept moving around to see if he was purposely watching me, and each time I moved he would look around to see where I was, and each time he did he was met with a glare until he would finally turn away. When he did, I would move again. These are the punks who are supposedly keeping us safe from the invisible boogeymen lurking amongst us? Welcome to Amerika!

I got on my bus without further incident, and when I arrived in Melbourne, a Limo service was awaiting to take me to my final destination on this leg of the journey.

It truly was sad as I peered out at America through the looking glass, a country I once honorably served as a US Marine and yet no longer recognize… – SJH
