Chattanooga Marines: God Help us ALL

Friday, July 17th, 2015

USMC Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, 40, of Springfield, MA, one of four Marines gunned down in Chattanooga, TN, on Thursday in what authorities are terming a domestic terrorist attack.

“He’d been shot at so many times over the years and then for this to happen at home in the United States,” Parnell said.

Sullivan survived the largest attack on U.S. forces since Vietnam during the Battle of Abu Ghraib in 2005. He also was awarded a Combat Action medal and Purple Heart, Parnell said.

The slain Marine was just a few years away from retirement when he was gunned down Thursday morning.

“There’s no Marine you would want that was better in combat than him,” said friend Josh Parnell, of Chicago.

They fought for our precious Freedom of Speech..
Yet we get scared and stay Silent.

They fought for our precious Constitution..
while most of own children haven’t a clue about it.

They fought and died to offer us Freedom of the Press…
as our very own media aids and abets our sworn enemies.

They fought to offer us a government which serves the people…while our fellow citizens vote for a terrorist enabler, Dictator wanna be.

I apologize to the memory of all the soldiers and their sacrifices……

I promise I will
never give up the good fight.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Bless them and bless you all Sweet Friends.

Thank you for your service and may God bless you George.
You are not forgotten.

Howzabout some inspiring news for a change my friends?

Singer Darius Rucker has presented the keys to a free house to a veteran from his native South Carolina.

The singer is giving away 11 homes while on tour this summer.

Branham is a Charleston, South Carolina, native who served 15 months in Iraq in the Army. While wounded by improvised explosive devices, he drove his vehicle to rescue nine fellow soldiers from a gas attack.

Army Major Matt Golsteyn Betrayed by Leaders Indeed

Sunday, February 8th, 2015

Despicable. This will make your head spin my friends.

Afghanistan War Hero Stripped of Silver Star
(Full story here)

This is the state of our Nation my friends. There are NO words.

By February 20th, 2010, the Battle of Marjah had been underway for a week. In order to seize the Afghan district—an IED-infested, Taliban-dominated collection of villages and crisscrossing canals and tree lines that were a defending fighter’s dream—the U.S. military had divided its force into thirds….

As the Special Forces soldiers wore Afghan Army uniforms, the Taliban concluded that there were virtually no Americans on their southern flank. The fighting there was intense.

Having secured a defensive position in the heart of the Balakino Bazaar (picture the Bakara market in the film Black Hawk Down, but more impoverished) the Special Forces team, led by a captain named Matt Golsteyn, repeatedly attempted to expand their footprint, but regularly met fierce resistance. On the 20th, one of the team’s assaults into Taliban territory took a turn for the worse.

An Afghan soldier was wounded and a vehicle got stuck in the mud as insurgents raked the coalition formation with gunfire.

Under heavy fire, Golsteyn, as Dan Lamothe of the Washington Post summarized this week, “ran about 150 meters to the trapped MRAP to retrieve a powerful 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, an anti-tank weapon. While moving under gunfire, he coordinated a medical evacuation for the wounded Afghan soldier and then opened fire with the Carl Gustav.”

Running through the open despite the fact that the Taliban had successfully pinned down the rest of his men, Golsteyn looked like he “was alone fighting 30 enemy fighters out in the poppy fields.” He then coordinated airstrikes from F/A-18 Hornets and a drone, silencing the enemy. The battle lasted four hours.

For his actions, Golsteyn was awarded the Silver Star, and was told that the medal would likely be upgraded to the Distinguished Service Cross (the Army’s equivalent of the Navy Cross, and second only to the Medal of Honor) after review by the Secretary of the Army.

I can confirm that this was true because I was present at the ceremony where Golsteyn received his Silver Star, and personally overheard Lieutenant General John Mulholland, then the commander of the Army’s Special Operation’s Command, say that an upgrade was under consideration.

In fact, I know Golsteyn—now a major—well. I served alongside him in Marjah for months (though not on the 20th of February—I was among the thousands of Marines fighting elsewhere in the district that day) and can attest that he is one of the most courageous, dedicated, and honorable officers I encountered during my service in the military.

He would give his life for the men he led without a moment’s thought—and he very nearly did, on several occasions. When we returned from our deployments and honors began to roll in for Golsteyn, I reflected that it is nice to see the good guys get recognized.

It didn’t last long. In 2011… I learned that the Army had launched a criminal investigation into his actions during the battle….

The investigation, apparently, had nothing to do with the acts of bravery that earned Golsteyn his medal. Instead, according to the Washington Post, which cited officials familiar with the case, it concerned “an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.”

….Alerted about the controversy by another Army officer, Captain Will Swenson, Congressman Duncan Hunter wrote last year to John McHugh, the secretary of the Army, asking about the status of Golsteyn’s seemingly endless career freeze. Apparently the secretary did not take kindly to the inquiry, as he responded in a letter last November that not only would he not be upgrading Golsteyn’s Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross, but would be revoking Golsteyn’s Silver Star entirely…

The revocation of an award such as the Silver Star is extraordinarily rare, and typically would happen in the case of the recipient being convicted of a serious crime that in some way dishonored his service. But not only has Golsteyn not been convicted of a crime—he hasn’t even been charged with one.

McHugh would not reveal to Hunter specifically why he was taking his action beyond submitting the innuendo that he was privy to “derogatory information” regarding Golsteyn’s record.

What could this information be? Who knows? Having, according to Hunter, spent years threatening Golsteyn’s men, searching for and failing “to find one piece of evidence to corroborate the allegation” that launched the investigation, the Army clearly decided to punish Golsteyn anyway, through publicly dishonoring him in a manner that allows him effectively no recourse or due process….

Such is the quality of American military leadership that generals and political appointees like McHugh will send courageous soldiers like Golsteyn into incredibly difficult (some would suggest impossible) circumstances, then invest years in second-guessing their actions after the fact—and then, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, still publicly dishonor the man without giving him a chance to defend himself.

Never mind the fact that if a Taliban bombmaker did in fact die in a violation of the rules of engagement, then in what topsy-turvy universe is that a bad thing?..

In any event, if the Army truly does believe that Golsteyn violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, then they should charge him with a crime. If they can’t do that, then we must conclude that insufficient evidence of a crime exists, in which case Secretary McHugh should give him the Distinguished Service Cross he deserves….

Golsteyn, Swenson, Gant, and others like them are led by men who interrupt their political intrigues and email flirtations with wealthy socialites only to crucify the troops actually doing the fighting when, for whatever reason, they become politically inconvenient—preferably, as with Golsteyn, in a manner that allows for no response or appeal.

Most Americans would take one look at Golsteyn’s record of service and call him a hero. The men who will not share Golsteyn’s risks, but who will hurl innuendoes at him after the fact and publicly dishonor him in a manner that allows him to mount no case on his own behalf?

There’s a word for them too: cowards.

How many ways can you say disgraceful?
Perhaps the new ROE’s should just include surrender. Pffft.

Unlike our PC pathetic so called “Commander in Chief”…our Soldiers, Navy, Marines are the ones who see a clear line between Good and Evil.

This lack of gratitude should not go unpunished.

And…Unlike the dhimmi Congress members, our soldiers actually ahem…work.

Their sacrifice, self-discipline, and personal responsibility is unparalleled.

As y’all know, I have worked with soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, and trust me Sweet Friends…Whether they fly, march or sail….They got our back.

Perhaps someone needs to remind the real “cowards” who demean our heroes that FREEDOM AINT FREE.

God bless you Army Major Matt Golsteyn.

Hang tough. Your true allies have your back, as they apparently always have…..

Thank a Soldier~:)

Feel Good Story~!

An Iraq war veteran in Pearland, Texas, thought he was stopping by the shop to check on some small repairs to his classic car over the weekend.

When he arrived, he was surprised to find his 1965 Ford Mustang restored to mint condition.

Retired Sgt. Kelly Foster bought the classic car nine years ago after his first tour of duty in Iraq. He has been slowly paying for repairs and restoration on the car ever since, KHOU 11 reported.

Strangers Pay For Veteran’s 1965 Ford Mustang To Be Restored

When Margaret and Timor Martin heard about Foster’s car and his service in the armed forces, they gather funds from friends and family to help complete the work on the soldier’s dream car.

The repairs cost $20,000 dollars..

Boooyah! Enjoy the ride Kelly!

Runners Detour Out of 8K Race Path to Thank 95 Year-Old WWII Veteran

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014


Start the day with your morning coffee and This Sweet Friends.

Well, this will certainly brighten your day, especially if you’re sick of all the winter storms.
Last Sunday, the Pat Tillman Foundation, which helps military veterans with higher education, held their annual 408k race – in San Jose.

Yet, there was an unexpected guest: a 95-year old WWII veteran Joe Bell in full uniform, who was there encouraging all the participants running in the event.
In return, countless runners came over to shake this hero’s hand
and thank him for his service.

Booooyah!
I wonder who the first guy was……..sheer patriotism.

Soooo……Why are conservatives and Republicans seemingly more supportive of our troops than liberals?

It’s a good question.
Why Do Conservatives Love the Military?

1-The military sees a clear line between good and evil.
The minute you start thinking that there’s no such thing as good and evil, right and wrong, it’s virtually impossible to support an organization like the military.

2-Veterans view themselves as servants, not victims.

3. The military stresses hard work, self-discipline, and personal responsibility.

4-Service members understand that freedom is not free.

5-The military shoots guns. Lots of guns.

Semper Fi.

And for some lessons the IzlamoNazi pandering Left and media may wish to learn:

- “War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”
– Gen William T. Sherman

“If you kill enough of them, they stop fighting.” – Curtis LeMay

And finally…

“It is fatal to enter a war without the will to win it.” – Douglas MacArthur

Trudat.

God bless you and all our precious soldiers laying their lives on the line for the ungrateful masses.

Humble Trash Collector: Patriot

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

Okay Sweet friends.

This made my day. What do y’all say?

You can see the video at this link friends:
This Humble Trash Collector Did Something to an American Flag That Made Him a Hero

An Oregon garbage collector was just going through his route when he saw that an American flag had been blown off its pole and scattered across a trash can.

While he could have just ignored it, he instead stopped what he was doing, properly folded the flag like he’d learned to do in Boy Scouts, and returned it to its owner.

Love this dude~!
