November 11 2017 – Lest we forget

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, England mourns for her dead across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres. There is music in the midst of desolation

Semper Fi, Paris Style – Updated

In the midst of too much bad news, I felt compelled to share the story of the two unarmed U.S. Marines who foiled an attack by a heavily armed person earlier today onboard a high-speed train en route to Paris from Amsterdam. Details are still coming out, but photos of the two Marines are appearing

RIP, William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st AB Div.

LC & IB Jaybear just brought us the unwelcome news that Wild Bill passed away yesterday, March 8th, at the quite respectable age of 90.

If this isn’t a loyalty test then I don’t know what one is

I had to walk away and triple check that this wasn’t from the Onion or the DuffelBlog. Nope.  No such luck. Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats U.S. Marines turn up noses at Obama’s new ‘girly’ hats  If Amos and the senior leadership roll over for this then we know that what we’ve been

More “Absolutely Not Deliberate Ogabe Theatre Because… Tea Party!”

Via Doubleplusundead. OK, so here’s the sitch: The military doesn’t have enough Catholic Chaplains, so what they do is hire priests to hold Mass. Obviously, with the ShutdownPocalypse and all, they can’t pay those priests at the moment. Nothing outrageous here. It’s what “shutdown” means. It implies shutting down stuff, no? Unless, of course, we’re

They Handled Fortress Europe, After All

So Ear Leader’s regime, desperate for some theater to demonstrate how the Evil Anarcho-Terrorist Rethugnicans are hurting, HURTING people by refusing to give Ear Leader everything he demands without a peep, decided to declare the WWII memorial in DC closed due to the “shutdown.” Mind you, we’re not talking about the Smithsonian here.

Then We Guess We’ll Finally Find Out How Seriously They Take Their Oaths

Donald Sensing, in light of Barack the Tyrant’s recent decision to “ask permission” while at the same time declaring that he can do whatever he wants to regardless of the answer, makes a very interesting observation, should Barack the Bastard decide to truly go it alone: But there is another component of what such a

In humble thanks for service and sacrifice, guarding our freedoms and our shores. “There is no greater love than this: that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.” Lest we forget.

Equal Opportunity – Unequal Risks

Looking through various headlines I came across this: Marine General says women ready for Combat This is sure to be a hot button topic- so At the risk of crossing swords with the G.L.O.R’s here across the mighty Empire I have to say simply this – it’s wrong. It’s just flat out wrong. The General
