A Surprise at Sail Boston

When Mrs. Dust, Trail Jr. and I visited Boston this week for an afternoon among the tall ships we saw an unexpected sight.

Not every floating vessel was wind driven. Not every boat was tall.

Unlike so many sailors this week, not all were wearing their dress whites. Not all were acting as friendly ambassadors from their respective nations. 

There were also the ordinary working boats, shuttling goods and passengers across the harbor, between neighboring ports and Boston, and the ferry going to and from nearby Provincetown at the end of Cape Cod which hooks back in toward the mainland.

And then there were these guys…

They were not dressed for comfort or show. They were not shaking hands, kissing babies or playing music to entertain the crowds.

While we enjoyed a summer afternoon on the waterfront, touring tall ships and conversing with sailors from around the world, 2 unusual watercraft slipped unnoticed across Boston harbor, neither shiny nor tall. Their occupants were dressed in camouflage, their heads wearing helmets, their their knives flat black, their guns loaded, their craft capable of 50+ knots.

Yes America, we are still at war, and we still need men like these, who are willing to put it all on the line for their country.

To all our men and women in arms,
we at Fellowship to the Minds say…

Thank you

  1. I wonder what the military men in camouflage’s mission was?

      Same here. My guess is the heightened terror alert until Ramadan is past.

      • Prob true…intimidates wannabe attackers. Let them know we are more aggressive in protecting/defending our citizens. This ain’t the U.K.

          The general police presence was huge. There were lots of bicycle mounted police with yellow and blue uniforms, many police in typical Boston police uniforms, other groups of police in dark navy blue uniforms. We had to go through metal scanners every time we entered a different wharf to view another group of ships. I think they were doing everything possible to prevent anything like the recent events in London.

    • Part of the Coast Guard’s port security mission– especially as the event’s a possible terrorist target during Ramadan.

  4. I do not support our military, though I am studied in the art of war-they have become MERCENARIES-killers for hire by the ELITE’this Is not PATRIOTISM, and the Patriotic thing to do is to REFUSE TO SERVE

    Yes, it makes me so proud when we see the military traveling or protecting us at the various airports when we travel. In fact, at the Texas airport there were a lot of sailors sitting on their duffel bags waiting for their ride. With all of us thanking them for their service.

  6. Maybe they were keeping an eye out for that drug-addled, has-been. ex-patriot “Pirate of the Caribbean” asswipe. Who knows, he might attempt to attack us via the Boston Harbor…? I say, “Let him try!”

  8. It is still disheartening to hear such idiot comments made by people like Suna. With little to no knowledge about our military, they have no idea what our military is made of or what they truly do, except make this country safe enough to make such asinine statements as that.
    Our military is made up of brave men and women wanting a future for their families. Not patriotic, so they won’t serve. Seems like the chicken way out making an excuse from being brave enough to wear a uniform.
    To lump our military into one pile and label them all mercenaries is a cheap shot. The only personal gain they want is future freedoms.
    Having come from a long line of military past and current today and having lived in the middle of a military complex for over a decade. I take those comments as an insult and very UnAmerican.
    Want to hate our country and it’s military, have at it. I dare you to make those same statements in NK and expect to survive.
    The lack of respect for those keeping our lives and our children’s lives safer is heart rendering.

  9. Looks like the modern update of the old Vietnam era river patrol boats. The threat is much worse than the Government is letting on. Americans need to be ready for an uptick in violence in our homeland. President Trump didn’t put all combat veterans in critical places because he wants to play army.

  10. Why is it that when the terrorist regime calling itself Israel is mentioned that so called Christians start calling people names and acting like the devil?
    Have you not read what the bible says about this subject?
    John 7
    John 8
    Revelation 2:9
    Revelation 3:9
    Hebrews 11
    The old covenant is nothing like the new covenant
    Jeremiah 31:31
    Christians and all who believe on Jesus are Gods chosen people, those who reject him are cursed and dead.
    John 3:16-20

      Brother Mark, this post was about Sail Boston and the surprise sighting of military patrols on the harbor. Some people injected their opinions about Israel, which was not the point of this post.

      Modern Israel’s legitimacy can be a discussion on a different thread. And I have seen nobody on this blog implying that jews or anyone else can bypass their need for Jesus, and get saved without His atoning work on the cross. I think most of us are well versed on the scripture that says, “…those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.” This also is a topic for another post.
