Pentagon leaders have said for years that sexual assault is a top priority, but a new report confirms what critics have long said: It isn’t. The Pentagon is not providing enough trained investigators to handle a growing number of sexual assault reports.

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.

Some more shocking news from our government:

Joe Biden has one plan for the military that could cause a mutiny

A key Republican in Congress blew the whistle about a growing problem in the military.

It’s a direct result of Joe Biden’s policies.

And that’s because Joe Biden has one plan for the military that could cause a mutiny.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby hinted that Joe Biden could mandate the coronavirus vaccine for every member of the armed forces if the FDA gives one the vaccines full approval.

Currently the COVID vaccines are only approved under an emergency use authorization which also limits the ability of the government to mandate members of the military take the vaccines.

“Should the FDA approve it then I am certain Pentagon leadership will take a look at what our options are going forward, including the potential options of making it mandatory. But I’m not going to get too far ahead of process right now,” Kirby stated during a press briefing.

Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie announced on social media that he would introduce legislation preventing the government from mandating members of the military take the vaccines.

Massie introduced the legislation after the Congressman revealed that members of the military contacted him with their concerns about taking the COVID vaccines and that they would refuse and leave the service.

“I’ve been contacted by members of our voluntary military who say they will quit if the COVID vaccine is mandated. I introduced HR 3860 to prohibit any mandatory requirement that a member of the Armed Forces receive a vaccination against COVID-19,” Massie wrote.

In 1996 the government mandated all 2.5 million military members take an anthrax vaccine approved under an emergency use authorization.

This led to lawsuits as service members refused and were discharged.

The problem was so great that one government report found 25 percent of airmen leaving the military at the time did so over the vaccine mandate.

“A General Accounting Office report released in October found that as many as 25 percent of the pilots and aircrew members leaving the military or seeking transfers were leaving because of the vaccination program. Pentagon officials disputed the report, saying there is no exodus of personnel because of fears about the anthrax vaccine,” CNN reported back in May 2001.

Seems to be a pattern coming from President Biden that shows he has no respect for our military. We will see what comes from all this mess.

Honors Marching Soldiers

During my basic training there was an opportunity to be an honor guard. I didn’t seek the position, but my drill sergeant told me I was going to try out. When your drill sergeant speaks, you listen.

I went to the first “work-out,” and quickly knew I had a rough load ahead of me. They not only had you doing constant, repetitive, drills, but your boots had to shine so much you could see you face in them.

I made the squad, and then we concentrated on things we would do while we were marching. We did cadence songs. There was the twirling of the rifles in mid-air. Then we also did a halted maneuver of putting our rifles to the ground and tapping them twice and then flipping them up to our shoulders in one movement

We were in a local parade in Monterey, California. This was the town near Ft Ord where I did basic training. We marched and sang our cadence. WE twirled our rifles in and tapped them on the ground. The crowd loved it, and we were very proud to be representing the Army.

Some people want to forget their time in the military. Many of them are Vietnam veterans. I was so ashamed of our country when I started hearing stories of grief and verbal attack our soldier had to endure when they came back from Vietnam.

I come from a military family. I had three uncles who fought in WWII. My brother and I served, and my son just retired recently as a Colonel.
