Did You Miss Me?

I am back... kind of.

Sorry for being away so long... these are crazy times we're living in.

Back to business now... what's going on in the world?


Once Upon A Time...

...twenty-five years ago today, to be exact...

A young man from a small town in Colorado stepped off of a bus at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California and saw these:

...and then he saw this:

Even with that horror, the young man decided to stay around for a few decades.

Then, a few years after he had hung it up for good, he dusted off the old uniform and went to watch his son climb off of those same yellow footprints.

Crazy world, eh?

Happy first day at boot camp to me.

abc news is reporting another case of Iran being caught providing weapons and explosives to terrorists who are actively engaging our troops.

When do we have the right to defend ourselves from this?

Our Future?

I say, this is something of a sticky-wicket, eh, what?

Gotta love the old college tradition of tolerance and acceptance of anyone and everyone... right?

Not Just Another Day


[[ Losses heavy. Difficult to get runners through. Some have never returned. Morale excellent, but troops about all in. Men exhausted. ]]

6 June 1918 was the day that forever changed the face and heart of the United States Marine Corps. This was the day that saw the beginning of the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I.

If you are not familiar with this battle, you should take the time to look into it just a bit. I'll give you a few highlights... starting with the darkest one: on 6 June 1918, the U.S. Marine Corps suffered more casualties than it had in the entire 143 years of its existence up to that point.

Those Marines fought... oh, Lord, how they fought. Even though the French had other suggestions for us. From the USMC web site:

[[ As American forces arrived on the scene, Captain Lloyd Williams of 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines Regiment was told by the retreating French army that turning back was the best course of action. He declined, giving the now-famous reply, "Retreat, hell! We just got here!" ]]

As the battle raged, our legendary marksmanship training paid off:

[[ With little to no cover, Marines maneuvered through an 800-yard wide-open wheat field, trying to reach the heavily entrenched German soldiers. The Marines began their advance with unwavering courage and the use of precision long-distance marksmanship. According to Gilles Lagin, a Belleau Wood historian, the Germans were familiar with British snipers, but the Marines’ ability to hit a target from more than 500 yards away stunned them so badly they believed there was an entire regiment of Marine snipers attacking. ]]

Here's part of the account given by Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels:

[[ In Belleau Wood the fighting had been literally from tree to tree, stronghold to stronghold; and it was a fight which must last for weeks before its accomplishment in victory.

Belleau Wood was a jungle, its every rocky formation containing a German machine-gun nest, almost impossible to reach by artillery or grenade fire. There was only one way to wipe out these nests - by the bayonet. And by this method were they wiped out, for United States marines, bare-chested, shouting their battle cry of "E-e-e-e-e y-a-a-hh-h yip!" charged straight into the murderous fire from those guns, and won!

Out of the number that charged, in more than one instance, only one would reach the stronghold. There, with his bayonet as his only weapon, he would either kill or capture the defenders of the nest, and then swinging the gun about in its position, turn it against the remaining German positions in the forest.

Such was the character of the fighting in Belleau Wood; fighting which continued until July 6th, when after a short relief the invincible Americans finally were taken back to the rest billet for recuperation.

In all the history of the Marine Corps there is no such battle as that one in Belleau Wood. Fighting day and night without relief, without sleep, often without water, and for days without hot rations, the marines met and defeated the best divisions that Germany could throw into the line.

One more thing about Belleau Wood... it is the battle where Marines earned the nickname "Devil Dogs." A captured diary from a German officer stated that the "American Marines fight like tuefel hunden (devil dogs)."

God bless the souls and hearts of those men... I will never forget them and I will do my level best to help others remember them.

Semper Fi, Marines!

This is a must see. Although, I guarantee you that the soldier doesn't think it's anything special... just doing his job.

Well, we sure as hell do need to. Check out this little gem:

Fred Thompson Time

Okay, I'm going to start showing a new meter on all my postings that involve Fred Thompson. It will indicate how close I am to dropping everything and campaigning shamelessly for Mr. Thompson. The scale will be the standard 1 to 10, with 1 being: "No way, Freddie." and 10 being: "FRED, FRED, FRED!!!!!"

For the past few weeks, the scale has hovered between 3 and 4.5... mostly because I was and am still gathering information.

This morning, it moved to 7.5.

Why, you ask? Well, I've been doing more and more research into his background and life... and I finally found his Senate voting record. He is right on the money on the vast majority of these votes. I am troubled by a few things there, but we'll see how they flesh out as time goes on here.

Fred Thompson On The Issues

So, that moved the scale a bit... but it wasn't until I read this piece in the Weekly Standard that it leapt mightily upward. Take the time to read this... trust me. It gets really good on the second page.

From The Courthouse To The White House

Listen... I'm a man who has recently been let down badly by a politician. I am hurt and bruised and battered by my President's current behavior on this immigration fiasco. So, I am not ready yet to jump blindly behind another "Conservative" politician.

Having said that, I will add that Fred Thompson is starting to look incredibly, amazingly good. So good, in fact, that the meter has moved again since I've been typing this!

Fred Thompson Meter: 8

Ironically, one of the things we like most about him is his steadfastness... unfortunately, it applies even when he is dead wrong.

What a legacy... to stand as a strong President and then be remembered as an advocate of open-borders and illegal aliens invading America.

Too Bad

Just sad... that's all.
