Military news…

A U.S. Marine brought an Afghan baby to safety over the walls of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan in video footage that emerged on Thursday. A Marine spokesman called the lift “a true example of the professionalism of the Marines on site.”

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham says the U.S. is welcoming thousands of ‘unvetted’ refugees from Afghanistan. But know this: she’s wrong. Those Afghans who are coming directly to the U.S. are rigorously vetted under the Special Immigrant Visa system, and those that haven’t are undergoing that process in a third-party country now.

_______________________

The worst of times can bring out the best in humanity, as demonstrated by Sher Ahmad Ahmadzai, a former Afghan interpreter who, with the help of non-profit groups, attorneys, veterans and other advocates, overcame countless challenges to make it out of the country. A month ago, Ahmadzai and his family were facing near-certain doom, but now they are safe.

The Taliban have not a second of remorse for what they are doing to the people of Afghanistan. They had one woman cook for them. They didn’t like how she cooked so they burned her alive.

________________________

There is a story about n American citizen who tried to get into the airport, but a Taliban soldier took her passport and wouldn’t give it back to her. He wanted her to have to stay in his country. A Marine was close and made him give it back to her. A true hero.

My view…

Things are horrible for civilians in Afghanistan. People being killed for no reason. Women rapped. Children being used as sex slaves. If they didn’t like how you did something they kill you.

Our president(Biden) is denying any of this is happening, and yet you can see it in pictures sent home. He thinks things are going smoothly, and so does Kamala Harris. Are they on another planet?

They are full of denial, and not accepting that they are failing in their duties.

This is not leadership in my opinion. It is the opinion of many people, even many democratic congressmen.

I am thinking Biden may get impeached soon.

New World of Warships Charity Tournament
This summer Verizon is launching a new World of Warships charity tournament in partnership with Wargaming and Wounded Warrior Project called Verizon Warrior Series. The Verizon Warrior Series will welcome teams from across the country to compete for a great cause – veterans in need.

“One second he may be asking about your family, and the next time he will be telling you that he hates the sound of your voice, that you’re f–king retarded.” That’s what one sailor had to say about Navy Cmdr. Frank Azzarello, the former commanding officer of the destroyer USS Forrest Sherman. An investigation found that Azzarello ‘crossed professional lines’ and harassed his sailors.

___________

“The only advice I think I gave him was to do the very best that he could and then to do a little more.” That’s what living Marine Corps legend Hershel “Woody” Williams told his great-grandson Cedar Ross before Ross began Marine Corps boot camp earlier this year. The 97-year-old Williams was awarded the Medal of Honor for repeatedly assaulting Japanese positions during the battle of Iwo Jima in February 1945. But his age didn’t stop him from seeing Ross graduate from boot camp last week.

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.
______________
“Numerous female soldiers reported that it is a daily battle to get through the day without allowing the multiple advances from male soldiers upset them.” 

_______________

“Gender affirming care is also a life-saving necessity for some veterans, as supported by leading medical experts.” That’s from veterans’ advocate Jennifer Dane. the Department of Veterans Affairs is moving to eventually offer gender-confirmation surgery for transgender veterans. At least one federal lawmaker attacked the VA for doing so, but the grounds of his argument may not be as solid as he thinks.

A a sidebar thought from me….

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed this scary plan for the U.S. military

Democrats have their eyes on fundamentally transforming the U.S. military.

That’s bad news for America.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed this scary plan for the U.S. military.

Right now America faces a rising Communist China.

The communist government in Beijing believes it will one day eclipse the United States and that it will develop military superiority.

There are currently worries that Communist China can launch a military invasion at any moment to seize control of the nation of Taiwan and the American military would be powerless to stop it.

In fact, war games from the U.S. government show the Communist Chinese military defeating the American armed forces in any conflict over Taiwan.

Despite this reality, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and admitted that far-left Democrats plan to cut the military budget when Congress debates spending bills for the fiscal year 2022.

“[W]e’ve got appropriations season coming up, funding and critical agencies that progressives want deep reform in. We’ve got the defense budget coming up. We’ve got DHS coming up. We’ve got a lot of these different big bills, that have — from agencies where there have been lots of concerns. And so, I think we’re pacing ourselves right now. Because progressives do want to bring down the military budget. We want a $15 minimum wage. We want to make sure that we expand Medicare and that we lower — at bare minimum lower the age. I would like Medicare for all,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.

This is the true definition of America Last.

I am close to blowing up from not releasing steam.

I have some serious doubts about our leadership in Congress, and even the White House.

Nancy Pelosi rammed a bill through the house that will destroy our country in many ways.

Most that it will shove us into Socialism. The bill H.R. 1, is meant to abolish the Filibuster. We have had the Filibuster for years, and even the Democrats have used it to ram things through the Senate. Now they want to get rid of it because they have such a close vote in the Senate a tie would many that V.P. Harris would make the deciding vote.

They would then ram many anti American bills through the same way.

I usually do not get on my soapbox and scream, but I am now.

Please contact your senators from your state and ask them to vote no on this horrible bill. It is anti American.

That was a heavy rant. Sorry!

I have another endorsement for you. My last post I had Steve Durgin, the CEO of one of the greatest non profit charities for veterans, called, Victory for Veterans.

I also had Colonel Dona Marie Iversen a retired nurse who was a fight nurse in charge of surgeries while flying wounded to the hospitals.

___________________________________

Now I am going to share an endorsement from a daughter who lost her military father to suicide.

Learn from the best, Douglas Bolton, U.S. Army Veteran who has written a great book for all veterans, active duty service members of all branches, military families, friends and non-veterans. It provides a thorough understanding, knowledge, and the real stories among those who have served and their families that compliment today’s American Veterans.  Signs of Hope for the Military: In an Out of the Trenches of Life can make a big difference in today’s understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its affects.  As the daughter of Vietnam Marine Veteran that suffered all of his life with PTSD and then finally ended his own life, it will make a big difference in your life as you read the personal stories.  This author does a great job of creating a sense of urgency by calling it a “must-read,” and ends with a powerful “call to action” for the reader.
