Trivia answer:
 The U.S. Army developed a special case and parachute for dropping pigeons from aircraft to supply isolated troops with a means of communication. The devices also were used to drop thousands of pigeons over the countryside during the June 1944 Normandy invasion. French civilians were asked to send back information about German installations and troop movements.

Trivia answer: Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has directed that all U.S. Navy ships be outfitted with brighter, longer-lasting and energy-efficient lighting, so sailors won't have to change lightbulbs around ships as often. Vessels old and new will receive light-emitting diodes (LEDs) lights. The upgrade will reduce the drain on ships' electrical loads and lead to a decrease in the number of sailors' slips, trips and falls. The Navy's future is not only brighter, but healthier, too
