Enjoy Veterans Day. We would want it that way. Many may not even realize the meaning of the day some will even take it for granted but nonetheless it’s a day named for us but if you look at it, it’s really about you and our country. Not only is Nov 10 Veterans day, it’s the Marine Corps Birthday and trust us, we are honored to share the day.
Like that in the US, throughout the UK it is Remembrance Day Nov 10 and on Nov 11thin Australia and Ireland. I mention these as well not only because I have met some of the best warriors from these countries but some of the finest people as well.
Wherever you are, know we appreciate the day and hope you join us in sharing the honor in respecting those who have served their country. Your warriors are still at war, least we never forget!
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.
At least someone besides the British are taking the fight against ISIS.The United Arab world has taken a step to qualify female pilots and now they are taking the fight to the enemy. I wonder how ISIS feels about getting wiped off this earth especially by a UA female pilot. Take that dirt bags. Time for a C-Gar
Remember gang, we have Americans still hooking & jabbing while Americans back in the US worry about whats for lunch on Monday or if they have enough money for their starbucks. Your warriors are still at war, yes, still - Time for a C-Gar
I have been traveling this week through Camp Pendleton and the west coast so there were a few post missing this week but below is one that will make you grateful we have great Americans out there sacrificing every day. Remember America, we are still at war! Time for a C-Gar
"The Marine who suffered the injury saw this video and contacted the site to let them know that he made a full recovery. The veterans’ site explained that this video provided a very good lesson for Americans who haven’t served in the military:
At minimum, a video like this can help the average civilian realize (on a very minuscule level) what some of our veterans have had to deal with during their deployments.
If you are a civilian and find yourself wanting to ask a veteran a question like, “Have you ever killed anyone” or “Did you lose any friends over there”, remember that it’s images like this that will be flashing through their mind when you do, so it’s usually a good idea to keep those questions to yourself.
Very good advice, and thankfully a happy ending to an otherwise frightening video."
