Former USMC infantryman, proud father of a current USMC infantryman and two Princesses who know what that means. Currently an NRA law enforcement firearms instructor, radar instructor, CPR instructor, a few others but you get the point.
Catholic, conservative, heterosexual, gun owner, anything I can do to piss off liberals.
Ten years ago, Crunch, I had the temerity to tell a radio host that this war would be exactly like the war against Japan. The Japanese were teaching their children to fight with pointy sticks until the blast went off. This enemy now has children still in the war. They teach their children to hate us. War must be so… Read more »
From my lovely and talented wife: As we remember the terrible events of ten years ago, I am deeply saddened by the attitude of some of my fellow Americans. I’ve read too many comments that claim we should sorrow, not rejoice, over the death of Osama Bin Laden, and that to do otherwise is to practice “hate.” I believe that… Read more »
Oh, and hell no, I have not forgotten.
Not only have I not forgotten, but it’s a bad day to piss me off.
I will NEVER forget … 9-11

I will never forget, and I will never forgive. I will also never submit.
Like several people on the Rottie, I have dedicated my life to the USA thru my blood, sweat and tears. This war is going to take generations, and I like what I see of some of the youth enlisting and others becoming officers.
Not quite O/T: My Bro, Specialist JMFL (Jason MF’ing L) U.S. Army Reserve, left this AM on an all expenses paid, year long vacation in the lovely beach front resort known as Kuwait. I know that Kuwait is pretty safe and his MOS has him as an office poge in a hospital, but he leaves behind an almost 2 y/o… Read more »
Why is it that our enemies always underestimate the resolve, strength, courage and commitment of true American patriots, like my brothers and sisters here? Our patience, temperance and kindness are mistaken for weakness. Yet, time and time again, it has been shown that when you push us too far, and leave us no other option except retreat, we will hunt… Read more »
W. is at a memorial at Shanksville today. Where’s the imposter-in-chief? Golfing?
LC FORGER – Racist TEAhadi @ #: Actually, Kuwait is not that safe. There are places in Kuwait City that even the police will not go because it is controlled by Al Qaeda. The reason, you ask? Because it is the initial staging point for money being funneled from the Wahhabi Saudi Arabia rulers to insurgents in Iraq. Here I… Read more »
Going to do my normal Sunday routine (yard, etc). Flag’s out at salute position (unlike the SOB across the street that claims to be a former SEAL). I’m going to hoist one privately this pm after all is done today to those who passed ten years ago due to the government’s ‘need’ to gain more control over the USA citizens… Read more »
There is one more thing we should not forget. Under pressure from anti-gun activists, The FAA disarmed pilots in 1987, who up to that time had the right, and often the initiative, to carry a firearm on board. Had this not happened, it seems unlikely that Al Qaeda would have chosen to attempt to commandeer airliners with boxcutters, and 9/11… Read more »
Did anyone listen to Biden’s speech at the Pentagon this morning? Was I wrong in hearing these –
He said ‘confront’ versus ‘comfort’ several times. He got the flight number of the plane hitting the Pentagon wrong. He stated that the people who lost their lives were replacable.
Did anyone else hear this?

We know the enemy. Oh, yes, we know them, and the time will come when they cross that line and the world will absolutely explode with the full and unrestrained application of the 2nd Amendment as we defend our nation, and all freedom loving people from those who would destroy our way of life. But also remember: Shortly after the… Read more »
NEVER FORGET Majority Leader Tom Daschle brought every Democratic Senator to the premiere of Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore’s viciously dishonest smear job of America and its president, and led the standing ovation. The Democrats then honored Moore with a seat next to Jimmy Carter at the Democratic National Convention, serenely untroubled by Moore’s gushing comparison of Saddam’s armies to America’s… Read more »
ah, yes. The heart-rending photos dubbed “The Falling Man” that the MSM banned. They thought it was “too terrible” for public use. I call bullshit. Every American needs to see that horror. Drive home the what those people felt in their last moments; more let them know the true horror that was inflicted on this Nation, and it’s People. Look… Read more »

As soon as the rain stops the colors are going to fly…..damn, those pics are hard to look at, remembering reading of the sounds of bodies impacting…….those people were innocent countrymen and women….simply going to work. They could have been someone I knew and loved………..yet they are all someone I mourned.
The tears of heaven…it is still raining so Old Glory is staying in the closet…..
I sent those pics on.
I live in NYC, so I remember it well. A friend of mine died there; he had been married only a year. As soon as I heard, I went to try and give blood, but they only wanted O donors and the line was so long they said come back in 2 hours. As it turned out, they didn’t need… Read more »
Got up at 0730; wrote a poem, Proceeded to get drunk. Why? Because I had to. Words don’t get it. Maudlin tears, and copious alcohol does. There are no words. Only heartache.
Alcohol dulls the pain.
Did anyone else hear Flanders’s Field in the back of they’re mind when the Flight 93 Memorial was dedicated?
Here in northern Virginia this morning, the skies were the same nearly-clear condition they were on this date ten years ago. Never forget that Al Qaeda committed mass murder in broad daylight.
I will always remember. As will Hubby, who called me on that day, as a soldier, not a husband.
And my children will always remember.
My fear? That history will be written by the winners, and that concept is too nebulous still.
I Was Pulling Into The Parking Lot At Work… And as I walked into the garage, I heard the radio morning show talking about a plane hitting The WTC. I gaffed it off as their usual unfunny stupid shit until I noticed through the open office door that everybody was huddled around the TV. As I walked in they told… Read more »

October 2007: WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, D-Ill., said he will no longer wear an American flag lapel pin because it has become a substitute for “true patriotism” since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He commented on the pin in a television interview Wednesday and then again on Thursday at a campaign appearance in Independence,… Read more »

My thoughts have been with you and your countrymen today. Stand resolute, proud Americans.
Late to the post. Today I have an excellent excuse. Today Patriot Guard was supporting the Tenth Anniversary Program of Cry Out America 9/11. From 100o to 1800 hours. I stood as honor and security post. Full size Banners of each of SoDak’s KIAs, the standard songs, invocations, and Congressional messages (Cong. Kristi Noem, Husband and young son were there… Read more »
Well I’m right behind you Rurik. I’ve been quietly remembering today. I’ve stayed away from the news sites, the TV etc. I don’t need all the talking heads, speeches and certainly not any images of Obango and Aunt Ester to mar my own memories of what happened. They are burned into permenant images on my soul. The frustration into grief… Read more »
