You probably heard on your local news that two of Americas warriors were killed yet again by Afghanis traitors right? Not, because the news is focused on crap like how exciting the Mtv awards will be hosted by Miley Cyrus, wow, a direct reflection of America currently.  We get all focused on some moron chick who loves to stick her tongue out because daddy didn't give her any attention. Grow up. Because this administration has your warriors locked on FOBs, they are sitting ducks. We aren't taking the fight to the enemy, we are playing a waiting game. Nice change o voters, try talking to those dead warriors parents and explain why you voted for this commander in chief. Time for a C-Gar

 

 

Associated Press— A man wearing an Afghan security force uniform opened fire Wednesday inside a base in southern Afghanistan, killing two U.S. soldiers in what appeared to be the latest so-called “insider attack” to target foreign troops or contractors in the country.

NATO said two men in Afghan uniforms were shot in return fire and wounded, correcting an earlier NATO statement that had said two gunmen attacked the soldiers before being shot dead. Read more here

 


Project 22 - Motto Monday

After tragedy struck home last year, two combat-wounded veterans set out to end a little-known epidemic in America. Their 6,500-mile cross-country mission was to raise awareness of the high rate of suicide amongst Veterans and show their brothers and sisters-at-arms that there is hope for them. During their journey, they interviewed researchers, healthcare providers, and Veterans. Many of those they encountered had either contemplated or attempted suicide and were able to share the life-saving alternative sources of hope that they had found. Asking hard-hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, and painfully spurred on by recent estimations that 22 veterans are taking their own lives every single day, Daniel and Doc will stop at nothing to reach tomorrow’s twenty-two.

Ironic, the same day females graduate from Ranger school, the US Army also announces the prosecution of a fellow Ranger/Green Beret hero.Warriors protect the innocent but this administration punishes them for doing things in a war that may “harm” relations. Thus a young boy and mother pay the sacrifice. I thought we were there to help Afghanis, not ignore their pain.  Sadly, I have heard and seen many cases like this where the US Army/Marines use this type of action to “thin” your military, and it’s working. America, your military is so thin it should scare you and what’s worse, some of our very best are being dismissed out of the service when they should be receiving a medal, retained and promoted. Nice change “o” voters….Time for a C-Gar

The U.S. Army is kicking out a decorated Green Beret after an 11-year Special Forces career, after he got in trouble for shoving an Afghan police commander accused of raping a boy and beating up his mother when she reported the incident.

"It's sad to think that a child rapist is put above one of our elite military operators. Sergeant Martland was left with no other choice but to intervene in a bad situation. ... The Army should stand up for what's right and should not side with a corrupt Afghan police officer," Hunter told Fox News.Read full story here

Two women have made military history by becoming the first female soldiers to complete the U.S. Army's grueling Ranger Course, the Army announced late Monday. 

The women, who were not immediately identified, will join 94 men Friday for a graduation ceremony at Fort Benning, Ga., where Ranger School is based. The unit consists of rapidly deployable troops who are often used in special operations.

"Each Ranger School graduate has shown the physical and mental toughness to successfully lead organizations at any level," said Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh in a statement. Read entire story here
