Think about this for a moment...

We are paying 535 members of Congress millions to do nothing.

We are paying President Donald J. Trump nothing to do everything.

God bless our great President!

Just in case you do not know what the 'Roger ball' reference could be....

https://www.airspacetechnologies.com/blog/call-the-ball-how-is-your-logistics-communication

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to listen to the succinct communication between carrier operations and the aircraft in flight, it’s quite an experience. When a fighter jet is on approach and “in the groove” (i.e., 15-18 seconds to touchdown) to an aircraft carrier the Landing Signal Officer (LSO) onboard will say to the approaching aircraft, “Call the ball.”

He is asking for a couple of things, but primarily if the pilot can see the round orange "meatball" on the Optical Landing System (OLS). If he cannot see the ball for whatever reason, the pilot will transmit, “Clara.” This tells the LSO that the pilot is not receiving optical glide slope information, a situation that must be corrected by the pilot or LSO quickly. Otherwise, a wave-off is required, which equates to additional cost incurred in fuel, time, planning and even potential safety concerns.

Most all of the time though, the pilot will see the ball (and of course the related lighting system) and will note the orange ball's relation to the green horizontal datum lights. This will indicate if he is high, low, or on glide-slope.

In response to the LSO’s query to “Call the ball,” the pilot will answer by stating his side number, aircraft type, ‘ball,’ and fuel state (and qualification number if in training). It would most likely sound something like this:

Dallas two-two-one, Tomcat ball, five-point-seven.” This translates to: Dallas=VF-1's squadron call-sign, 221=the number on the side of the aircraft, Tomcat=F-14, ball=I see the ball, 5.7=5,700 pounds of fuel left.

Noting the information, the LSO would then respond, “Roger Ball.” The LSO would then only speak again if needed to correct some deviation… that in such a precision endeavor almost always happens.

“Ball” is short for "meatball.” Apocryphal or not, I am told the term meatball came from WW-II combat Naval Aviators. It seems that the round bright orange light on the early Optical landing system reminded them of the circular red markings on the Japanese Zero aircraft that they commonly referred to as meatballs. Even with the new advanced Fresnel lenses, it is not so round, but tradition says it is still… a ball.

Watching our group of critical logistics experts manage the day to day operations is very similar to flight operations on an aircraft carrier, where communication and accuracy are paramount. When dealing with mission-critical shipments 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, every shipment matters and transparent communication with stakeholders is critical. Unlike other sectors in transportation, we deal with shipments that mean life or death thousands of times per week.
