Military news…

Quiet day in the military news today. That is probably good.

After years of development, the Air Force will try firing frickin’ laser beams from its deadly AC-130J Ghostrider gunships.

Leaked documents reveal just how concerned the Marine Corps was about Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller’s call for ‘revolution The Marine posted viral videos to social media in late August criticizing military leadership over their handling of the war in Afghanistan.

It’s time to stop awarding the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, writes Marine veteran and GWOT Service Medal recipient Austin Dahmer. In fact, that should have happened a long time ago, he says.

There seems there was a movement to try to change the mind of our president, and his lack of love for the military. Top Generals in the Military are starting to turn on him. They stated that remarks made by him as to how they left Afghanistan were wrong. They said they tried to convince him to leave some troops there and he refused. They questioned his closing of the military airport.

With all of this going on it is no wonder that the president’s approval rating is down to 38%.

Military news…

A VA employee is under investigation for allegedly sharing a patient’s medical information on Twitter in a (poor) attempt at a joke about how penis surgery for the patient is a waste of taxpayer money. The tweet was not only a HIPAA violation, but it was also a callous barb against emotional and physical injuries that thousands of veterans, old and young, suffer from.

The baby daughter of one of the 13 American service members killed in a suicide bombing last month in Afghanistan was born on Sept. 13 and given a warm welcome from her Marine Corps family and beyond. Levi Rylee Rose McCollum, daughter of Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum and his wife Jiennah, “came roaring into this world and graced us all with her presence,”

The Army finally revealed why a soldier is being court-martialed for a mysterious firefight that took place in Syria last year. Though the details of the firefight itself are still murky, Sgt. 1st Class Robert Nicoson allegedly disobeyed orders and recklessly led his men into a gunfight with Syrian government forces, then attempted to cover up the evidence.

900 U.S. troops are still over there and nobody knows why. U.S. troops first went there to help destroy the Islamic State group’s former caliphate, but now they are stuck in between their Kurdish allies, Turkish forces who want to destroy those Kurdish allies, and the remnants of ISIS.

Remember the F-117 Nighthawk, the arrow-shaped stealth jet that kicked serious butt in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom? It’s back. Though the attack plane officially retired in 2008, the Air Force has low-key brought it back over the past few years for training missions with fighter crews, and the service publicly confirmed a recent Nighthawk training mission on Thursday.

Military news…

In 2017, a Marine Corps veteran named Brian Easley took desperate action to get his VA disability payment: He walked into a bank with a backpack which he said was filled with C-4 explosives.

With the mass airlift complete, U.S. policymakers no longer have an excuse to avoid contemplating the lessons of a 20-year war riven by hubris, flawed assumptions, and deceit.” That’s from national security expert Daniel R. DePetris.

“What inspires me as a leader is just the men and women that serve alongside me every single day” That’s from Capt. Shaina Coss, the first woman to lead elite Army Rangers in combat. But apart from her gender, Coss’ journey to commando commander was typical of most Ranger officers, she said.

A Marine veteran allegedly killed four people in Florida, including a 3-month old baby, and then told police that God told him to do it. Bryan James Riley, 33, also reportedly wore body armor and tried to lure police officers into a kill zone.

“I don’t wanna close my eyes without feeling like I lived.” That’s from a March Instagram post by Navy Hospital Corpsman Third Class Maxton Soviak, who received a posthumous promotion and Purple Heart on Tuesday after being killed alongside 12 other U.S. service members in a suicide bombing attack in Kabul, Afghanistan last month.

Still so much controversy on how president Biden is running the country. I wish he would do the right thing and resign. I would hate to have him with a impeached tag on his forehead.

From his terrible mistake in Afghanistan, and his disrespectful checking of his watch after each of the heroes coffins came out of the plane.

One Gold Star parent said that was the most disrespectful thing he had ever seen.
