Another Marine Battle.

  BATTLE ERUPTS OVER MARINE CORPS TRAINING DOC THAT CITES ‘LACK OR LOSS OF SPIRITUAL FAITH’ AS POTENTIAL SUICIDE RISK FACTOR Read this article. Might not be a popular concept, but it pans out. The wicked taketh the truth to be hard. Working with vets suffering from PTSD showed me very clearly that Servicemen who had […]

The Marine’s 1911

The Marine’s 1911

According to the Military Times, the US Marines are looking to officially pick up an off the shelf 1911 for it’s MARSOC program. The choice is between the Colt Rail Gun and the Springfield MC Operator. Between the two, I’d pick the Springfield in a heartbeat.  Springfield has shown consistent quality control and a commitment […]

US vs Iran.

US vs Iran.

Iran looks like it wants to tussle.  The US is more than game.  Iraq was more of a threat, and we rolled them in a matter of hours.  Iran will take less time.  Unless we station troops and move in and try to set up housekeeping.  I’d suggest a blitzkrieg, sink their ships, demolish their […]

America’s Greatest Aircraft

America’s Greatest Aircraft

There is one Aircraft that the US has that outshines all others.  There is a lot of gnashing of teeth over the loss of the F-22 program and the failings of the F-35 program… we’ve retired the F-15 and F-14’s… But we still have these… and they work harder and pull more duties than any […]

Military Charity Orgs

Military Charity Orgs

The topic of military charities has come up and two Orgs stand out.   The USO and the Wounded Warrior Project are two that stand out the most to me and some others.   I’ve had some positive experiences with the USO and one time they really helped me out when I didn’t even ask. 

All Female F-15 mission

All Female F-15 mission

This is interesting… for those that double female military capability: I find this to be an interesting follow up to the previous topic. What wasn’t reported in the news clip here, was that the mission was a success. I wonder how many missions were conducted with an all female crew.

Women in War

Women in War

We’ve read the reports that our Woman Warriors in The Stan are being encouraged to wear scarves over their heads.  We’ve read views supporting and opposing this from all directions.  My take on this is a little different.  The way I see it, Male or Female, they are American Warriors.   We should treat all of […]

The hypocrisy is staggering.

The hypocrisy is staggering.

We need to GTFO of Libya.  We have nothing to do with Libya and we can’t afford to get involved in their internal struggle.  Libya has a history of American Hatred, so they don’t even want our help and they certainly don’t deserve it.  As much as I don’t like that crack-pot over there… he’s […]

The US needs to stay out of Libya

The US needs to stay out of Libya

The violence in Libya is horrid and unfortunate… and it saddens anyone with even a small strain of humanity that a government would attack its own people.  Because of this, there has been talk of a US intervention.   This is a bad idea.

Sheep for the slaughter

Sheep for the slaughter

You’ve all heard the news about the 2 soldiers that were killed in Germany.  I’m not going to go into all that… save for one small little detail.   Our soldiers were unarmed. Once again, “Policy” has killed our troops.  Our Policy is that all US Forces are unarmed almost all the time.  This Policy allowed […]
