    In the Army, where I have the privilege of serving, there’s an unspoken rule that no service member celebrates Thanksgiving alone. If word gets out that a soldier doesn’t have a place to go for the holiday, other soldiers will invite him or her to share a meal and celebrate. Our creed to never leave a fallen comrade isn’t just meant for times of war; it’s a way of life. All soldiers are reminded that they are members of a tight-knit community – a bond that’s becoming increasingly rare in today’s society. While it’s nearly impossible to duplicate the closeness...
  • America’s Most Honorable Men Stand with Trump(good read)

    This letter from our military leaders to the voting public was organized by Major General Shachnow. Major General Shachnow has an amazing life story told in his memoir, Hope and Honor. His life experience help explains his leadership in opposing Hillary Clinton and supporting Donald Trump. Shachnow is the only Holocaust survivor to become a U.S. General and was a legend in the Green Berets, with whom he served for forty years. Like the perfidious Hillary supporter, the Nazi collaborator George Soros, Major General Sid Shachnow was a child in Nazi-era Europe. Shachnow took the opposite path from Soros.

    Mark “Oz” Geist and John “TIG” Tiegen, two members of the security team that helped rescue dozens of Americans during the Benghazi terror attacks, have endorsed Donald Trump for president. According to a statement released Sunday: Mr. Trump stated, “I am truly honored to have the support of these American heroes, the best of their generation. The American people can know with certainty, I will always place their interest above all else. I am the most militaristic person and it is so important to me to strengthen our military and protect American families and freedoms.” Mark “Oz” Geist said, “We,...

    PARIS — A gunman opened fire on a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris Friday, wounding two people before being subdued by two American passengers, officials said. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, speaking in Arras in northern France where the suspected was detained, said one of the Americans was hospitalized with serious wounds. Their names were not immediately released. Philippe Lorthiois, an official with the Alliance police union, said on i-Tele that the two Americans were soldiers. In Washington, the Pentagon said it “can only confirm that one U.S. military member was injured in the incident. The injury is...

    Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as “heroes.”

    The reason for starting this general conversation is I am a comic fan - specifically the Marvel/DC line of superheros. I just watched FLASHPOINT. The story is how the Flash goes back in time, changes the event of his mothers death, and upon his return the earth is drastically changed. He never got the speed force and there is no Flash. Bruce Wayne is shot as a child and his father becomes a more darker Batman, dealing out death, and Bruce's mother becomes the Joker. Superman is taken into custody upon his landing on earth and kept away from the...

    Hillary Clinton, speaking at the American Bar Association's annual meeting in San Francisco Monday night, botched the name of civil rights icon Medgar Evers. The former secretary of state and first lady was recounting the story of one of her mentors, lawyer John Doar. "In 1963, in Jackson, Mississippi, John stepped between angry protesters and armed police to prevent a potential massacre after the murder of Medgar Evans," said Clinton, who was referring to Medgar Evers, a civil rights activist who was murdered while walking into his home on June 12, 1963.

  • Chris Hayes from MSNBC is uncomfortable with calling war dead heros

    "It is, I think very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking the word valor, without invoking the word heros. Why do I feel so uncomfortable about the word hero? I feel… uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers, and things like that. But it seems...

    HOUSTON—Hundreds of people gathered at Bush Intercontinental Airport on Friday to welcome more than 200 wounded veterans to Houston. The veterans, many of them in wheelchairs or on crutches, passed through a cordon of cheering civilians waving flags and yelling their thanks. Some people in the crowd stepped out to shake the veterans hands or hug them and welcome them to Texas. "Awesome," said one of the veterans. "God bless Texas."

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 2011 – More than three decades after the war’s end, the Defense Department has begun a project to pay tribute to the nation’s Vietnam War veterans. The 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration was spawned from the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act. “It was a very important time period for veterans, because most Vietnam veterans as a whole never received the homecoming that our troops receive now,” said Army Lt. Col. Hunter Holliday, public affairs officer for the commemoration. At the center of the project is a website, “50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration,” at...

    In this season of gratitude, Bill Krissoff has a different notion of thankfulness than most of us. He feels "very lucky" to have been able to drop his orthopedic practice in Truckee, Calif. (a ski town in the Sierra Nevada), enlist in the Navy, and deploy to a war zone to repair the broken bodies of Marines -- all at an age when most other people are making retirement plans. Bill and Christine Krissoff had a right to think their family had already sacrificed enough for the country. Both their sons Nathan and Austin "were heavily influenced by 9/11," Krissoff...

    There'll be little room for history in Anderson Cooper's new home. Before he bought his century-old firehouse in Greenwich Village, bronze plaques honoring members of Fire Patrol 2 who died in the line of duty -- including on 9/11 -- were stripped from the building to make it easier to sell. The plaques were rescued from a pile of trash by Arnie Roma, whose son, Keith, a member of the fire patrol that worked out of the building, died on Sept. 11, 2001, rescuing people from the World Trade Center. A plaque in his son's honor graced the firehouse's facade....
