The Battle of Iwo Jima
Plus 67 Years

“The battle of Iwo (Jima) Island has been won. The United States Marines, by their individual and collective courage, have conquered a base which is as necessary to us in our continuing forward movement toward final victory as it
was vital to the enemy in staving off ultimate
defeat.... Among the Americans who served
on Iwo Island, uncommon valor
was a common virtue.”

- Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz,
17 March 1945

FBI warns of new banking scam
By David McMillin · Bankrate.com
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Posted: 1 pm ET


Some crafty criminals are aiming to steal one of the most valuable pieces of your personal property: your banking information.

In a new warning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warns account holders of a new spam email scheme that involves a type of malware called "Gameover." The scheme involves fake emails from the National Automated Clearing House Association, the Federal Reserve or the FDIC. These messages attempt to trick recipients into clicking on a link to resolve some type of issue with their accounts or a recent ACH transaction. Once you click on the link, Gameover takes over your computer, and thieves can steal usernames, passwords and your money.

The FBI also warns the thieves' hacking capabilities can navigate around common user authentication methods banks use to verify your identity, which is certainly a cause for concern. Those additional authentication steps --  often personal questions, birth dates or other pieces of private information -- are meant to provide some extra security padding.

While phishing scams are nothing new to the world of online banking, this type of warning serves as a reminder of just how susceptible account holders can be to malicious attacks. As more account holders begin to jump on the mobile banking bandwagon, it's important to remember that a smartphone essentially acts as another computer. While this additional connection to the Internet is convenient, it also serves as another outlet where your information can be compromised.

Here are a few crucial steps to take to avoid falling victim to this type of Internet crime.

•Keep your computer and mobile device updated with the newest versions of anti-virus software.
•If you have any doubts about an email sender's authenticity, do not click on any embedded links.
•Remember, banks never request any personal information via email.
•Be vigilant about checking your account balances. The sooner you notice and report any type of fraudulent activity, the more likely you'll be able to be reimbursed for any missing funds.

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/18/12:

A young man bought an expensive piece of jewelry as a present for his girlfriend.

“Don’t you want her name engraved on it?” asked the clerk.

The young man thought for a moment, and then, ever the realistic one, steadfastly replied, “No, just engrave it: To My One and Only Love. That way, if we break up and she throws it back to me in anger, I can use it again.”

The United States Marine Corps Hymn

Words: L. Z. Phillips (?) (1919)
Music: Jacques Offenbach from Genevieve de Brabant (1868)
 

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom 
And to keep our honor clean; 
We are proud to claim the title 
of United States Marine. 

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes; 
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines. 

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve 
In many a strife we've fought for life 
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes; 
They will find the streets are guarded 
By United States Marines.
