Military news…

“I walked around pissed off for a year and my anger was directed towards somebody that was completely innocent of what they told me he did.” That’s from Arnold Wright, who the Pentagon outright lied to about the events that led to the death of his son Dustin and three other Army special operations soldiers in an ambush in Niger in 2017.

An enlisted airman used a four-cent piece of plastic to fix a multi-million dollar night vision problem in the Air Force.

“We’re just not going to all kick them out on the day of the deadline itself.” That’s from Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro, who said not all Marines who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 will be kicked out of the service after the vaccine deadline on Nov. 28th.

Skosh the Dog

While I was in Korea we had a company stray dog that made our Quonset hut home. She was a loving dog that was pretty small, and that is why we called her Skosh.

We had to protect her as much as we could, because the Korean people thought dogs were a delicacy. She wouldn’t last long in the village outside the Camp Red Cloud grounds.

Much to our surprise she got pregnant. We didn’t know there were any other dogs in the area. I guess when a dog is in heat, any dog will find them.

She had four little puppies. As soon as they were born, right in our hut, she took them and hid them. We feared for the lives of those puppies, and we were right. Within a week after Skosh moved them, she came back to our hut and never left. She obviously had lost her babies.

That was a sad time for the soldiers in my hut. We knew what had happened, but there was nothing we could do about it. Skosh wanted to raise her babies her way.

I find that this happens today in our lives. We do whatever we can to guide our children, and show them what we think is best for their lives, but they still go into unknown territories and see what they can find there.

It is hard to see some of the things that our children do, because we have done them and had the same results. We try to tell them about the trials they may face, but they want to do it themselves. The hard facts are that we need to let them seek their own paths, and hope they will walk the right way.

Proverbs 22:6 Says: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

That can be our guide when we have children. We need to show them the right path, not just tell them about the right path. We should live by example, and when our children see what we do, they will want to do it too.

It is much like the old saying, “Monkey see, monkey do.”

If you don’t do drugs or alcohol and do take your children to church every Sunday you will have a better chance of having them grow up being good parents, and good citizens.

If you do have a problem with drugs and alcohol, you children have a much higher risk of following in your footsteps because they see it every day in their homes.

I told you in my last post that I would be sharing more discounts for veterans. However the current military news is overwhelming right now and we need to know…

Military news…

The Pentagon has quietly removed a massive collection of Afghanistan War footage totaling more than 120,000 photos and 17,000 videos from its official visual record.

(Something to hide?)

Speaking of Afghanistan, millions of Afghans will starve as Americans carve Thanksgiving turkeys this month.

(So sad. )

“Setting up and operating out of a small airport terminal with minimal supplies, equipment, people and so forth is almost like the Air Force dream.” That’s from Master Sgt. Daniel Fajardo, who helped set up a mini airfield with a few dozen other airmen in the middle of the Pacific this summer in preparation for a possible war with China.

(Hope they never need it.)

________________________

An Air Force colonel who was relieved of command last month claims she was fired because she did not personally order her subordinates to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

(MIxed emotions on this.)

________________________

The Marine Corps has publicly admitted what many junior Marines have long known: That it doesn’t really care if you stick around past your first enlistment,

(So very sad.)

________________________

The U.S. military’s toxic exposure problem is far bigger than just ‘burn pits,’ writes Keith Dow in this opinion piece. Whether it’s fuel, chemicals, exhaust or ammunition, chances are that if you’ve served, you’ve likley been exposed to toxic substances, no matter if you’ve deployed or not.

(Scary.)

Three years after a belly-landing wrecked its nose, A-10 tail number 80-0264 is fully repaired and back in action.

(They are hard to destroy. )

One last shocking bit of news. The Pentagon today admitting that they had the wrong total of Americans still stuck in Afghanistan. They kept reporting that there only 400 or 500 still trapped. The fact is that there is still over 140,000!

(Ridiculous!)

Military news….

In the military, losing your weapon could end your career, and that was the situation the late Colin Powell found himself in when he was a 21-year-old second lieutenant in 1959. Of course, that was not the end of the line for Powell, who went on to become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State before passing away on Monday at the age of 84.

I got picked on for not sharing more excerpts from my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life. 🙂 So here is one just for you.

Fire in the Hole!

I think this chapter title fits quite well for what I am about to tell you. While in basic training, one of the training steps we had to go through was learning how to properly throw a hand grenade. Each soldier took his turn getting into the pit with an instructor. He showed them how to pull the pin and properly hold it long enough before tossing it.

I was a ways back in the line so I watched with great anticipation. One by one each soldier stepped into the pit with the instructor, pulled the pin, and tossed the grenade. If it was a good pull and throw, the instructor slapped you on the back and said, “Move out !”

Just three people ahead of me and I was getting pumped. Then a soldier stepped into the pit, pulled the pin, and slung his arm backwards to throw the hand grenade. The problem was he didn’t have a tight grip on the weapon and it flew out of his hands backwards, hitting the wall of the pit. The instructor knew what to do, grabbed it, and tossed it over the wall of the pit. It went off about halfway to the ground.

Then I wasn’t so sure I wanted to try this! My turn came. I stepped into the pit. The instructor handed me a grenade, and told me to pull the pin and toss it after counting to three by saying, “One thousand one, one thousand two, and one thousand three!” I did exactly what he told me and I had a good pull and throw. I got that wonderful slap on the back and didn’t wait for him to shout, “Move out.” I was already on my way out of there!

Sometimes things happen in life we aren’t expecting. We’re going along enjoying life and then something serious happens. It could be an injury. It could be being told you are being deployed. It could be that a child was just born and you have to leave. Even worse, it could be that your child is born while you are deployed and it’s months before you’ll get to hold your child.

This is where our character is tested. This is when we have to dig deep and bring out the courage to keep going on. We need to know that everything will be OK, and we just need to be patient.
