Another failure to learn from history is the only way to describe the foolhardy notion that allowing active duty military personnel to carry a sidearm while on duty at U.S. Military facilities could endanger the lives of personnel on the base. The exact opposite, as with most […]
Four Marines are dead. Gunned down in cold blood by a cowardly terrorist named Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, TN. These four Marines will never go home. Four families’ lives are forever changed. America lost four heroes.
Today’s horrific shootings took place at a recruiting center […]
This past week or so has been a little trying for me and my family. I saw first hand how a nation takes care of its own. Oh sure, you may think I am referring to the welfare state. People who get money from the taxpayer to […]
American Sniper is a great book. It explains how a war should be fought and what a real hero looks like. It is easy. Obama is not a hero. He has never put his life on the line and he never will. And the art of fighting a […]
On May 29, 2015 I attended a showing of this excellent film in Houston, Texas. I say excellent because the combination of story telling, cinematography and the cuts from flash forwards to flash backs and the personal details that were included provided for as good a docu-drama […]
Brave, beleaguered Egyptian protesters post-Morsi. Benefitiaries of $1billion in […]
Why do we have Memorial Day?
Because Lexington and Concord is not a downtown intersection.
Because Bull Run is not that crazy thing they do each year in Spain.

Only our bumbling Republicans could take the number one issue we have against Obama, losing to Islamic terrorism, and turn it into George W. Bush’s fault. Beginning with Jeb Bush, several Republican presidential candidates said recently they would not have gone into Iraq militarily had they […]
Having debated leftist veterans of the United States Armed Forces, one detail of their ethos is nauseatingly clear: if they served during wartime, they were entitled by proxy to be considered exceptional American citizens. Most overwhelmingly are, and thank God for that. But just because one served his country during Vietnam where scores […]
We just ended our second war not too long ago. The Global War on Terror is officially over. I’m sure some Martini glasses clinked in DC when the bureaucrats were finally able to make the long awaited announcement, followed by pats on one another’s backs at black […]
By now, it is no secret the global market for oil prices are seeing record low totals when compared to the past decade. But contrary to conventional wisdom, this is not at all good news, as global economies are destabilizing, the threats of state bankruptcy due to their heavy reliance upon the energy bubble to […]
We have our times of great joy and thankfulness that we spend with loved ones close to us. In these times of joy we prize what is important in our lives and for many it is the renewed bonding, friendship and love […]
Orv Burns is pictured left next to a patchwork quilt his late dear wife Joyce made for him composed of of military emblems. Orv and George Strong, right, were regular attendees of Charleston Baptist Church in Bremerton, Washington, until they passed away. Orv […]
A British Sherman Firefly pictured in 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge. Once the Americans replaced the Stuart light tanks with the Sherman series of medium tanks, the Allies started making headway against the German Panzers.
Lately, conservative pundits like Glenn Beck and Hugh Hewitt have been questioning why America seems so apathetic about ISIS. Beck says Americans don’t realize how serious Islamic terrorism has become; we are on the verge of World War III. ISIS has expanded under Obama, even though, as […]
President Obama’s ill-considered attempts to negotiate with Iran suggest that he still hopes to be remembered for “peace,” but he has engaged in scores of military actions around the world, with few successes other than killing bin Laden. It was considered premature to award him the Nobel Peace […]
This past Monday marked the 70th anniversary of Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, the most famous photograph in U.S. military history and one of the greatest photographs of all time. As is generally known, it was taken by Joseph Rosenthal, an Associated Press photographer, on February […]
It’s not new to note that some of the greatest misery to occur during war is generally visited upon civilians. Those caught in the path of the maelstrom suffer and die much like soldiers, but with no glory. Names are lost and only […]
