Israel gets it, why doesn't America?


(Look - the US Army at schools back in 2011) Teachers tour: Giving educators greater insight into military life

Posting THIS & THIS, it was a reasonable response to a few items like, let’s see, 20,000 Marines being fired in Feb, massive unemployment in the US (compounded with at least 20,000 in Feb and sequential months of military personnel being dismissed) nut jobs shooting up schools and the current state of America. I can tell you, being overseas and looking at America, we have some serious issues and other countries are pointing and laughing because they see America falling, fast.

Santa, delivering packages, slinging hot lead..........

Santa lead

After he delivers all the toys to the good boys and girls around the world, Santa gets back on the job delivering hot lead to the bad guys!!

Santa, he’s the Man! I hope that everyone has had a great & safe holiday. Sometimes the holidays can be stressful, but remember the true meaning of Christmas and know that the time spent with those you love is important, one day they will be gone.  Those of us away & out of the US would like to be with loved ones so if nothing else don’t take the holiday season for granted, we wouldn’t  if we were there.

Have a safe New Years and we will help ya bring it in with a bang on our end….Marine style.

Time for a CGar!

One Marine's View hits 1 Million readers - Thank You!


Thank You! Because of readers like “YOU” reading this blog One Marine’s View has not only blown our daily readers attendance of 1K a day out of the water but currently is just under 9k for today (Christmas Eve 2012). I must say I was taken back a bit when I saw that there was almost 9k visitors today alone. This surge has put One Marine’s View over 1 million readers as of today. A blog that simply started as tracking my excursions through Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Afghanistan a bunch more times has become a blog that tries to bring a bit attention on those that serve. Specifically, that young Marine, Soldier, Airman, Sailor and Coastguard service member out there doing what many have chosen not to do and doing it honorably.

One Marine’s View doesn’t do advertising. Sure, I could make some coin on placing ads on the blog ( I get a lot of requests daily to put ads on the blog) but my take is that it’s not about making money, it’s about getting the attention to those young warriors.

I spose its fitting that One Marine’s View hits 1 million on Christmas Eve because the blog is about giving back to our nations gunfighters. Enjoy those you are with this holiday, enjoy the feeling of Christmas and please remember those that are away from their families doing an honorable thing and know somewhere, their family is missing them.

Semper Fidelis & God Bless America

Time for a CGar!!!!
