A good friend who I have worked with on a number of initiatives for years was recently profiled by the…

Operation Gothic Serpent, Never Forget

You may know it as the “Blackhawk Down” operation but it was actually called Operation Gothic Serpent and we should…

What is he going to say?

Well it appears that President Trump has decided on a strategy he wants our military to take in regards to…

Big Brass Balls

Yep, that is what this old Army Captain had and probably still does. A 24 year-old Captain who got an entire German Panzer Division to surrender, all because of how brave he was. This is something that even Hollywood can’t write stories about.   Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com   Read the whole story...

Crap or get off the pot

That was a saying I grew up hearing my Dad say many times. If you have never heard it before, it is fairly simple, Do something or get out, but don’t just sit there and waste time. It is implying the same thing as the famous quote, “Lead, follow or get out of the way”....

Happy 242nd Birthday to my Army

You don’t look a day over 230 years, but I still would like to wish a Happy and Awesome 242 years to the Greatest Army in the World, the US Army. You have given me 48+ wonderful years as an Army brat, a soldier and a father of a soldier. You have made me, shaped...

Brutal honesty

I saw this video for the first time this morning on a friend’s feed and it immediately took me back. I mean it really took me back to many things. Not only Afghanistan but also Iraq in Desert Storm. It also took me back to what it was like in the milblog space back in...

How can you be not-guilty if you confess?

So little Reality Winner (you have to admin that is an interesting name in her current situation) was a Trump hating, ultra-liberal, false-narrative believing angry little girl. That is fine as I know not everyone who works for the GOVT supports or believes in whomever is in the White House (trust me most of the...

Why so angry at appreciation?

This is part 2 of a 2-part series for Memorial Day 2017. So this is for the veterans; the ones that say “don’t tell me Happy Memorial Day” or get mad at civilians who don’t know the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day and thank them for their service. They (civilians) are only doing...

Who is Memorial Day for?

This is part 1 of a 2-part series for Memorial Day 2017. Memorial Day is one of the most honorable and important holidays that our country celebrates. After the last 16 years of warfare there seems to be a lot more “opinion” about what should be done on this holiday, how it should be observed...

We are Ranger Up explains the WHY behind it all

Our good friends at RangerUp have put out an awesome short video explaining not only who they are and how/why RangerUp was created but Nick also shines some light on the how/why vets do all that they do. Why the blogs, why the selfless service, why they tend to be a different breed from standard...

If Clinton would have won…

…I am sure we would never have known this information. According to the New York Times, Comey deployed a “go-it-alone strategy” during the investigation into Clinton because he thought Lynch and other Obama appointees would give Clinton, who was in the midst of a presidential campaign, “political cover.” Thank goodness that Donald Trump won the...

Book Review: Second to the Last to Leave, USS Arizona 12.7.41 The Lauren F. Bruner Story

PREFACE-I have read tons of books in my life, and have written many reviews on this blog and several others. In all the reviews I have written, I have never had such a hard time to write one. But then again, I have also never read a book like this, that had such a profound...

Escape from D.C.

This is the last of a five-part series on my experiences and observations of the 58th Inauguration for President of the United States. The first four posts were: Good intent gone very wrong, Excitement in the Air, A quiet calm before the storm and From a Sea of Red to Oceans of Pink After barely being able to...

Granite is stronger than glass

The title of this post is common sense and a known fact, but may not be self-explanatory in the way you think. This is a post I have been thinking about for a while and wanting to write for the last couple of weeks. Two months ago we saw a monumental and historic election happen. It...
