Your firewall is picking it up, so that's a good sign.  But it's not DoD, that's spoofed.  And it's called a port scan.  They're looking for vulnerabilites in your security.  I used to get scanned, but you can pick up these pretty little programs that zap them back, just to say: "Hello, piss off."

My my, ambitous little ones, aren't we all?

You can find everything you need here: [LINK]

Just understand that you must sort through 99.99% crap before you find something useful.  If you're hungry enough, you'll get fed.

Here is the best place to educate yourself in order to brush up on your 1337 H4C|<3R S|<1llz: [LINK] (or so I've heard)

But a word of advice: don't go jumping in over your head and do something stupid.  There are a lot of programs out there that make you feel like you're doing a lot of bad, but really are just silliness.  There are a lot of ppl out there who are a hell of a lot smarter than you, and some even more sadistic.  Just remember boys and girls:

to bounce the casual port scan just set your router to block them and not even reply to them or react in any other way. that makes it look like the ip they are scanning is inactive. best way to be is not even there. those portscans are usually after trojans, backdoors and other little bastards already running on a system that has been infected at some point. they will check either those ports known to be used by certain infections or just scan everything to see if anything is open and will allow them to get a foot in the door. keep in mind that even if a port is open it doesn't mean someone can take over the computer. more thngs have to happen for that to take place.

as for zapping back, it's problematic. say they are spoofing a DoD addy. what are you going to do, zap back at a DoD server? that sounds like something very complicated to explain to the FBI when they come around to see just what in blue blazes you are trying to do. and even if you manage to get back at the bastards probing you who's to say that they won't log your attack on them and report you to the authorities. it /is/ illegal to do stuff like that. sure, you can tell the judge that they attacked you first, but two wrongs don't make a right. best case is you end up sharing a cell with the original attacker and bubba.

stealth your system, put a good firewall behind that and watch 'em bounce off. you don't go jumping around on every fly that hits your cars windshield either, right?
