  • Flashback: Trump Saved NY Veterans Day Parade Marking 50th Anniversary of End of WWII

    A meme was started by Trump antagonists in certain conservative circles that Donald Trump does next to nothing money to help veterans. It turns out Trump has been generous with veterans over the past decades-all it takes is a little more research than those with an ax to grind seem willing to do. UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with 'saving' the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II. From the New York Times in 1995, another report that mentions how Trump came to...

    Memorial Day and Veterans Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veterans Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized. Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters. War resistors can be heroes....

    About 125,000 World War II soldiers and airmen are buried in 11 cemeteries in France. For many of their families it’s difficult, if not impossible, to pay a foreign visit to decorate their loved-one’s grave. But 70 years after World War II ended, French volunteers continue their pledge to do what American loved ones can’t. “He was in a bomber group and they were flying a mission over France,” said the nephew named after his uncle Chuck. Gunner Charles Speier was just 20 years old, a gifted artist, when he and his bomber crew were shot down April 1, 1944....

Sadly, however, exactly what it was that offended the students was rather elusive. On the other hand, their response to these alleged offenses was utterly evident. For our convenience, the best organized of the student protesters drafted a list of demands, including the termination of the university’s president, which they...

The reason we are able to live like we do is due to the courage, dedication and sacrifice of those who serve in the...

    Today is the anniversary of Armistice Day, 11 November 1918, when at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, the First World War came to an end after more than four years of carnage. (Armistice Day became Veterans' Day in 1954.) Described by British historian Corelli Barnett as a war that had "causes but no objectives, "the "Great War" left a legacy of disillusionment in its wake and made a shambles of the rest of the 20th century. All told, there were ten million military dead and seven million civilians killed. The resulting economic collapse, the...

    These days our men and women in uniform are usually treated with kindness and respect. Nobody begrudges someone in uniform getting to board a flight first, or getting comped a first-class seat. Even those on the left who think that people in military service are misguided dupes of evil militarists no longer indulge the open scorn and calumny prevalent in the Vietnam War era, when a uniform was a target for spittle and charges of “baby-killer,” when in 1971 John Kerry appeared before the Senate and accused U.S. troops of rape, torture, and mutilation. Yet under the surface of progressives’...
  • History of Veterans Day

    World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.” Soldiers of the 353rd Infantry near a church at...

    As Veterans’ Day approaches, it is important for those who have never served to take a moment to understand the solitary world of a vet. Millions of vets are and have been successful in all endeavors and professions. They are doctors, lawyers, business people and a thousand other professions. Not all have PTSD; not all are the troubled, brooding, street corner homeless guy, although they exist and need help desperately. No matter how successful a vet might be materially, more often than not, vets are often alone, mentally and spiritually each day and for the rest of their lives. Vets’...

In short, they werent pleased at all.

Others also voiced their opposition to the decision, noting that theres a reason why civilian control of the military comes with...

On Veterans Day, while most Americans were thanking members of the U.S. armed forces for their service and enjoying their communitys holiday festivities, Michael Schuette of Anniston, Alabama took to Facebook to explain that veterans are not American heroes. In fact, he believes they kill for profit, terrorize other countries, have never sacrificed for this country and do nothing for the American citizens.

    It has long been obvious that the banning of guns from schools has nothing to do with safety, and everything to do with the indoctrination of children. The purpose is to delegitimize the ownership and use of guns. From weau.com: EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- For the first year, a local veterans group will not be holding a Veterans Day program at the Eau Claire area school district, the decision was because of a disagreement over firearms. While it is stated that there are more reasons involved, the primary one is that school officials do not want any firearms,...

    This week Americans honor military veterans. On Americas college campuses, the attitude towards them is more ambivalent, at least when their presence on them is compared to their visibility in the rest of America. For one thing, not every campus is closed for Veterans Day. To be sure, many businesses stay open upon that day as well. Moreover, as the Veterans Administration web site notes, there is no legal requirement that schools close on Veterans Day. Nevertheless, veterans on campus are few and far between. With the possible exception of Troy University, you will find few colleges and universities on...

    The poisonous progressive agenda has oozed into a school district in Wisconsin which has caused the cancellation of a traditional Veterans Day ceremony that has been held since the 1930′s. Part of the time-honored tradition, which is the main reason the anti-Second Amendment rights leftists have banned the annual event, is because a 21-gun salute is conducted as part of the ceremony, and the controlist educators are worried that some people may feel an “uneasiness,” even though blanks, not real bullets are used in the rifles. “There are just some conditions that we have to adhere to and the shooting...

Today its a day in the United States to recognize all veterans in all warsnot just those who died or were wounded or even served in a war at all. Its designed to heap praise and adulation on all things military. In doing so, in the name of patriotism, it therefore endorses all of our war policies, right or wrong.

    The American soldier is the backbone of our liberties; the rock upon which tyranny must break. Without their sacrifice, their unwavering commitment to this nation and the ideals it espouses, this republic not only would have fallen but its beacon of hope would have been extinguished long ago beneath the smoke-ridden battlefields of Lexington, Bunker Hill, or Yorktown. Tragically, despite the fact millions of Americans bask in the opportunity and affluence of their God-given rights, those procured by the unassuming few, the struggles of our veterans often goes unappreciated or unnoticed; especially by those who have the most blessings or...

That said, Google couldn't resist inflicting its PC-politics onto the homepage, with wildly unrepresentative demographics. The image shows five military members. Standing alone out front is a woman. Of the five, three would appear to be members of minority groups, and two are women. One white guy manages to make it in. Compare and contrast with...

    That is very close to what I heard Ron Paul say in a Peter Schiff interview herepa_20131112hgpd_low.mp3. The link will only be available for a few days.

    I recently took my two teenage sons to a talk by Frank Kravetz, a 90-year-old World War II veteran who survived Hitlers Nuremberg prisons.
