A known white supremacist serving in the Air Force is still in the ranks more than two months after his extremist views were first widely revealed. Airman 1st Class Shawn Michael McCaffrey, 28, has a track record of espousing white supremacist, anti-Semitic, racist and homophobic beliefs on social media.
For the first time in decades, service members who have suffered due to negligent medical care now have the chance to file a claim against the Department of Defense The Pentagon’s brand-new rules for doing so represent a turning point for service members and their families.
The military is going ahead and doing sexual changes for trans dressers. The many changes that the military is making does not go well with me.
I have some recommended military books to share with you. I have read them all, and they are all excellent:
- D-DAY: The Climactic Battle of World War II. A New York Times Bestseller. by Stephen E. Ambrose. Complete coverage from the first moment to the end.
- We Were Soldiers Once…And Young. By Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore (ret.) and Joseph L. Galloway. The story of the battle at Ia Drang. It change the war in Vietnam
- Band of Brothers by lt. Lynn “Buck” Compton Great personal stories of the Band of Brothers. (Had two of them live right in my hometown.) Met Buck. Great guy and signed his book for me.
One of my interesting times in the military, was getting ready to shipped out to korea.
I signed up on the buddy plan. There were three of us. Two of us had one last party before we were to go to San Francisco, California to board a ship heading to Korea.
It was just two of us buddies doing the party. I was definitely not a drinker, but on this night I was going to party.

The next time I woke up was on the bed. I was stark naked, and they were two girls there giggling. I was so embarrassed.
We finally got to San Francisco, and spent the night at a USO hotel.
There was dancing, etc, going on in the ballroom, but I had enough partying, and headed up to my room.
I was waiting for the elevator when a guy came up to me and put his hand in my crotch. He said, “You are very gifted. Would you like to come to my room?”
The fear was overwhelming. My first experience with a gay guy.
I quickly got on the elevator to safety.
The actual trip on the ship is another whole story. Thousands sick, but I wasn’t…
