Military news….

If the United States and China get into a shooting war, there is a good chance it would start in Taiwan. China has viewed the island off its coast as a renegade province for more than 70 years, but now the Chinese military is stronger than ever and could carry out its claim.

An Air Force lieutenant colonel showed courageous restraint last week when a man on the street harassed him and an enlisted airman outside a Metro stop in Washington D.C. Not everyone can remain so calm when a stranger is yelling in your face and trying to punch you, but this man did.

“It’s never as good as it seems and it’s never as bad as it seems, but keep your head and there’s always a way out.” That’s from Norm Hooten, a retired Delta Force soldier who was played by Eric Bana in the 2001 film “Black Hawk Down.”

This will be a very short post today. Got too many things to get done.

One of the many things that bugs me about the military is that there are way too many people in the civilian ranks who hate the military. I posted a story above about the soldiers that were attacked by a creep for no known reason. The LTC Colonel was really calm and worked out perfectly.

However, that is not acceptable! These men were serving their country, and may have been put in harms way so that the jerk could get aggressive.

Military news…

The Pentagon is looking for a few good Nazi-hunters. Just kidding, they’re looking for just one senior executive to think up ways to prevent and respond to “supremacist, extremist, and criminal gang activity” in the U.S. military. The job opening comes amidst a recent surge of alarm bells over the rise of extremism within the ranks, including one neo-Nazi soldier who planned to attack his fellow troops.

Finding your tribe outside of the military
Erik Bartell left the military with no idea what he was going to do next. After serving for six years as an Army infantry officer, an injury forced him to make a decision. Erik had always wanted to lead, but with this injury, he would not be able to lead Soldiers directly in the field. He made the difficult decision to leave the Army and soon found inspiration from an unlikely source, fitness.

Healing the hidden wounds of war
Founded in New York City in 2012, The Headstrong Project was created to help military veterans and their families overcome PTSD and other military-related traumas. The founders of Headstrong saw a deep need for mental health services for post-9/11 veterans. They also saw a large gap between the care that was available and veterans’ access to it.

Airmen may soon be able to choose their own adventure when it comes to physical fitness tests, even if it involves walking. That’s what the Air Force announced on Monday. When Lt. Gen. Brian Kelly said the service would experiment with giving airmen options for how they want to perform their test. You other military branches may laugh, but some airmen say that walking for a fitness test is actually a lot harder than it sounds.

“Anything can happen in this sport,” says Spc. Alejandro Sancho, one of 12 Army athletes and three coaches going to the Olympics this summer. While Sancho will compete in Greco-Roman wrestling, other Army athletes will compete in boxing, shooting, swimming and more. The Olympics begin on July 23, so now’s the time to start getting hyped.

___________________________________

This last story reminds me of a very sad response from one of the Olympic performers. She decided to let people know she was anti American, by turning her back from the American flag and holding a women activist t-shirt up.

This caused lots of controversy of course, but the final straw of all this was that our own president says he is Ok with her doing that.

Biden admin ‘respects’ Olympic athlete’s ‘right’ to insult America

Those headlines didn’t go well with me. In my opinion and many others she should be dropped from the Olympic team since she hates America so much. The Olympics is all about patriotism towards your home country.

Military news…

“I’ve read Mao Zedong, I’ve read Karl Marx, I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist.” That’s from Gen. Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who’s had it up to here with everybody accusing the military of being ‘woke’ for teaching classes and recommending books about racism. Milley told federal lawmakers what he thought of their accusations at a hearing on Wednesday, and boy was it spicy.

The Navy’s also under fire from Republican lawmakers for trying to be less racist, in this story about Adm. Michael Gilday, the chief of Naval Operations, who testified before Congress on Tuesday about why he included Ibram X. Kendi’s “How To Be An Antiracist” on his recommended reading list for sailors. Other books cover artificial intelligence, guides on China’s rise, and profiles of historic Navy leaders.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin supports taking the decision to prosecute sexual assault and domestic violence cases out of commanders’ hands, marking a major shift toward a change that military leaders have long opposed. Victims and activists say leaders fail to take action against offenders, but Austin’s top generals are more cautious, especially about opening up the change to other crimes beyond sexual assault.

I am dumbfounded to see the two reports above about Congress pushing for the learning on how not to be racist. I shared last week that from a survey that showed that the military is the lowest for racism compared to the private sector. There are not black, yellow, brown or white soldiers in the military. They are all brothers.
