Wuterich attorney speaks about plea deal


I was in Iraq when “Haditha” hit the fan. Actually, I wasn’t too far from the actual event. It’s interesting that after 6 plus years the Marines involved have had charges dropped. It’s interesting how the ones who have never been to war or served in the countries great military are the first to point at those that have. Remember, when you point at someone, you have three fingers point back at yourself…..

Marine Corps "Tebowing" During the last Denver game











  A lot could be said about the Denver quarterback. He gets hammered on the field, his coaching staff is wondering if he is the real deal and all those against his religion criticize his faith. Hmmm I thought America was built on freedom of speech.

I will give him this, he stands strong, and he has the Marines on his side so stand by.

Marine commander fears amphibious ships shortage

Shrinking the military is never my idea of a good thing. Im kinda partial to having the trained personnel and equipment I need when I deploy. I guess I like to win. One of the biggest issues I see is our military being reduced so thin that when the time comes to fulfil ALL the commitments, we are going to be doing more with less, without the things we need and which is not the way to do business. That’s the way to get dead. Remember, those that the US military its telling “No thanks we don’t need you anymore” and booting out of the military  (into a real work friendly environment) are the ones who are battle tested through the Iraq & Afghanistan campaign. Sure, our service branches will train new recruits like no other. However, battle trains some like no other and we are telling those with battle tested skills good bye. When you tell them good bye, you simply don’t regenerate that kind of combat power again…..unless you go to war for another ten years.

I guess if you don’t actually have to go to do the fighting it doesn’t matter to you as much, but to those of us that do deploy, it’s pretty damn important. Like coming home or not important.

Monday Night football tribute to our heroes

With all of the football that went on this weekend as we build up to the Super Bowl, I thought the below re-cap post about the Pacers tribute last November (in case you missed it as Im sure it was on every news station....not) This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night, 11/14/2011.Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5 seconds.
