Sgt. Major speaks out: 'My career was defaced'

The Marine Times did a story on the below SgtMaj that had a "run in" with a protestor wearing a campaign cover. The SgtMaj that confronted the protester did keep his cool and the dude wearing the campaign cover (protesting) filed charges against the Sgtmaj only to get the SgtMaj fired. Really, he filed charges? The SgtMaj must have scared him pretty bad. This is a good story how your Marine Corps has changed. Ask yourself if the outcome would have been the same during Sept 11 attacks or even during WWII? Your Marine Corps is being torn apart. Hope you can survive without them. Time for a C-Gar

All day Marines had been coming to him with questions about a man who stood protesting outside Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, wearing the distinctive drill instructor’s campaign cover, known affectionately as a “Smokey Bear.” Like the Marines he spoke with, Archie felt that wearing the uniform item in a political protest was inappropriate and even against official regulations.

Jackwagon Poser

There are many things I could call posers of your military warriors but I think the internet police will send me another finger shaking notice. Eh..

Below read about this knob who figured it was cool to serve a very short time in the beloved Marines then say he was all that and a slice a bread too when he was wounded. It only takes one bad apple kids, stay in school for the love of God!

Here is your tip of the day, if your gut is telling you something is up, then more than likely there is something up. Good advice if you come across a poser like this. Time for a C-Gar

What started as a feel-good story about a wounded combat veteran and his service dog, turned out to be a pandora’s box of deceit as information was uncovered by military activists who found evidence that the veteran was lying about his service.

Days Before Retirement, Amos Accused of Padding Resume

James-amos-ts300

I find it very interesting a congressman is weighing in on this now, is he admitting he didn’t do a thorough job in the first place. Even more interesting is these exact same types of questions he is asking about Gen Amos, could be asked about our commander in chief. Why doesn’t the congressman take care of in house issues before attacking the Marines. The congressman better not have any skeletons either– Time for a C-Gar

‘I’m too stubborn to die’: One Marine’s proud, painful recovery after losing his legs in combat - Motto Monday

There are days like Monday that many fell like their day was difficult. Some may feel ”why me?” If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck. However, if they just realized how much worse off they could be they wouldn’t whine on Monday morning. When your Monday kicks your butt, or you at least feel like your butt is kicked, think about this warrior. Time for a C-Gar

It was as though I was watching myself die from afar, witnessing my own life slip away from me. I looked at my Marines as they knelt around me, hitting and screaming for me to wake up, crying out for my life. All I wanted was to comfort them in what I imagined were my last moments.

I had so much to say: I wanted them to know everything would be okay and that I was no longer in pain, but the strength to speak escaped me. I was proud of them and they needed to know they had done everything possible to save me, and if I was to die it was not by their hand. They needed to hear that I would see them all again. But as what little strength I had faded, as the darkness began to surround me, I was sure that death was inevitable.

SOUTHCOM Commander Links Southern Border to Ebola Threat

Tracking-ebola-AP

Here is another article about the relationship of ebola and the illegal invasion of the US. Funny thing is, you read about this here on OMV and now months after my post, the “bigwigs” post it. Perhaps they read One Marine’s View? In my previous post I clearly showed the relationship of potential Ebola cases and the distribution of illegal juveniles. Now, the news is talking about “possible” Ebola cases but as you can see from the info I have provided, there are more cases than they are reporting. This is a white house failure. Time for a C-Gar

A “large percentage” of illegals captured trying to enter the United States through Mexico are from West Africa, said the commander of the U.S. Southern Command (Southcom) in explaining how his team is keeping an eye on the Ebola crisis.    

West Africans are traveling through the Western Hemisphere on their way into the United States illegally and coming in contact with nations that are ill-prepared to handle an Ebola outbreak.


Obama's Watch: 90% of 20K Total U.S. Warriors Wounded in Afghanistan War

Raiders-1942f
Myself, and perhaps you may as well find it interesting that you don’t hear about any of the KIA in Afghanistan or in units supporting Africa or even Kuwait. Not that the information was greatly produced before but at least the DOD would send out notices and make America informed that their warriors were fighting and dying. I bet your local new station hasn’t had any stories on your TV in months.

However, you might be asking me, “Pain, have we lost any se4vicemembers recently?” Yes, yes we have and a ton under this administration’s watch. He just doesn’t want you to know that.  Time for a C-Gar

At least 17,316 American soldiers have been wounded in the Afghanistan war theater since Obama was inaugurated for his first term, according to a count maintained by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).  

Overall, according to the Pentagon, 20,017 United State troops have been wounded in action (WIA) since Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) began 13 years ago today.

The first pitch - Grenade style!! - Motto Monday

Retired vet Brian Keaton walked onto the grass before getting on his stomach and crawling several feet at Nationals Park on Saturday. He threw the ball with his left hand from behind the mound and the toss bounced home. The crowd cheered loudly before San Francisco played Washington. According to the Nationals, Keaton was wounded in a bomb explosion. The team said he spent 3 1-2 years at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center recovering from a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Keaton walked into right field for a bear hug with Washington third baseman Anthony Rendon before the toss. As he left the field, Keaton embraced Nationals manager Matt Williams, pitcher Doug Fister and shortstop Ian Desmond.
