Watch An Iraq War Vet Take On Three Foul-Mouthed Punks On A Bus - Motto Monday

Jim-hardie

Why does it take a veteran to set asshats back in their place? This guy has an honest job, just trying to go home and these punks want to be "tough guys. They don't know how lucky they are. Time for a C-Gar

 

Jim Hardie is an Iraq War vet who has seen some tough fights in his day. But one day traveling on a bus, he decided to once again put himself in harms way to defend everyone else traveling that day.

As the story goes, Jim was traveling home in Seattle on the bus after a long day of job hunting after his 8 year run in the service.

It was at this point that three men in the back of the bus began talking extremely loudly, yelling obscenities that were making everyone uncomfortable. Instead of doing nothing, he started at them and told them to stop.

That’s when the assault came. Jim fought them all off until they got off the bus. The other passengers began to applaud him. Read more here


Bragg soldiers, families share final moments before deploying to fight IS

Deployments aren’t easy. You have the stress of being apart first and I can guarantee as soon as the departure day comes, all kinds of BS starts to happen like, the kitchen sinks falls out of the counter, the car water pump goes, dog has to go to the vet because he ate a piece of your gear as you were packing in the middle of the living room etc etc. Complete cluster……..

I handled it by setting up the spousel unit the best I could before I departed, had a couple plan B set up but when you get into country (for me Iraq & Afg) you have to somewhat separate  yourself from your normal life and focusing on killing bad guys. Your fellow warriors depend on it.  Frankly, somehow the spousel units (wives) at home while their warrior is deployed figure shit out and do a pretty damn good job. What other choice do they have?

It’s not easy and it’s a big shit storm when you come home from deployment  where your spousel unit has been the problem fixer and you resume the man of the house role. Ya, it never goes well .

There were many times I was on a satellite phone in some shithole talking back home trying to reassure a little one everything was ok, or trying to fix an issue while describing how to do it 3,000 miles away. Then there is that god for saken list of shit the Mrs has for you to do because she couldn’t find time to knock out (7 months) while you were gone.  Welcome to the deployment life.  Time for a C-Gar

"The first mass departure of Fort Bragg soldiers to lead the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria took place today, with about 150 paratroopers deploying.

But amid the typical controlled chaos of a deployment at Fort Bragg's Green Ramp, officials said some of the most important players in the upcoming fight weren't in uniform. Read more here

The families - spouses, children, parents and others - of the deploying troops are vital in the coming fight, said Lt. Col. Douglas Gibson, commander of Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 18th Airborne Corps."


Hero Pilot shoots down plane with 45 - Hump Day

Many people have never heard of this story, frankly, many would never believe it could even happen. But it did. Freaking awesome- Time for a C-Gar

 

On March 31, 1943, when they were stationed in British India, Baggett’s squadron was ordered to destroy a bridge at Pyinmana, Burma. But before reaching their target, the B-24 bombers were intercepted by Japanese fighter planes. Baggett’s plane was badly hit, and the crew were ordered to bail out. The Japanese pilots then attacked U.S. airmen as they parachuted to earth.


1,500 US Servicemen Being Held in Turkey

Well, not exactly. "Following the failed coup attempt in Turkey several days ago by some members of the military, 6,000 people have been arrested, with President Erdogan vowing to purge the “virus” that caused the revolt.

Now following the turmoil in the region, the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey has been placed on lockdown, and US forces are currently being held hostage unable to leave the area." Stated here

This isn't a "hostage" event at all. No one is on the base restricting anyone. This happens in Japan pretty often where service members are restricted to "on base" Political BS.  So now you know the full story. Time for a C-Gar


Air Force colonel learns man he helped on 9/11 at Pentagon lived - Motto Monday

Odich

It's been nearly 15 years since their lives were thrust together for a few chaotic moments outside the Pentagon on 9/11.

Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell never got to thank the man who held his leaky IV line and tried to keep him conscious as he lay on a gurney, parts of his body and half his face burned beyond recognition. Col. Rob Maness never knew if the severely wounded man he'd helped had survived.

That is, until last week, when their paths crossed again. Read full story here


Marine pilot killed in F/A-18C Hornet crash in California

636053947555313855-0507frontlines07

A pilot from 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California, was killed in an F/A-18C Hornet crash Thursday night.

The crash was during a training mission around 10:30 p.m. near Twentynine Palms, California, according to a press release Read full story here

 

This is tragic and unnecessary. You have to wonder after this crash, the Blue Angels F18 crash and yet another crash this year you have make the connection of the lack of parts for your military aircraft determined by this administration after cutbacks is directly responsible. Your military is at WWI numbers. We can’t even do the norm “do more with less” because we are at our last resorts.

When your own Commanders are telling you it’s not working, you know you have a problem.  This airwing commander says just that.

Marines adapt and overcome(of course) as we did by taking (borrowing) F18 parts out of the aircraft bone yard. Wait a second, so your telling me Marines have to go to an air museum and bone yard to get parts? Yup, because with cut backs, there are no parts available. Does that sound like we are “ready” to defend this country? Nope. Also, do you think that is a direct correlation to these crashes? I would say so. Time for a C-Gar


Military Times survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton by a huge margin

635983876219232807-AP-108981562374

"In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members' preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates."

"But given only those choices, 21 percent of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting.More than 54 percent of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25 percent said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup. Read full story here"

So you are telling me through this poll that you can’t stand Hillary (understandable) but because your “guy” didn’t win you aren’t voting right? Remind me again when you turned into a little bitch again please…..Oh ya, about the time our Navy sailors surrendered to Iran.

Index

Look, your “not voting” strategy did real wonders for America during the past 8 years with the current administration. Let’s not repeat that Mkay?  For those “needing a safe place” that are in our “military” now, grow a pair please or go join the freaking boy scouts but for all that is holy, make a freaking decision and stick to it. For you officers, I know you were taught that during your initial training and for those junior servicemembers, for all that is holy, do some homework, make an educated decision and go vote. Seriously, stop being little poke a man chasing turds, go to the gym , grow a pair, get a tattoo and chase those hot babes that love a man in uniform. Seriously dude, put your pok a man app away, you’re not making us look good at all……smh.

Regardless, who you vote for (#Trump2016) not voting is like hitting on your cousin, it’s so wrong and very disappointing. Time for a C-Gar

Hillary's America - Motto Monday

Every American should go see this movie. It’s not simply a movie of which they bash Hillary in, but, it’s a great history lesson for both parties that you didn’t learn in school. Interesting enough, many may say this movie is a republican movie full of hate propaganda before they go see it. On the contrary,  the maker of this movie shows facts about both political parties and also made the movie “Obama’s America, then was arrested and jailed with a five year sentence for donating “too” much money to a political party (funny right). Somewhat of a strange coincidence that the make of this movie is a minority, makes the movie about Obama called Obama's America (which he nails and predicted everything that has happened during the Obama term) then is somehow singled out from the thousands of lobbyists, business donators etc etc and is jailed for donating  money to a political party and receives a five year term in a serious jail to basically shut him up and make him go away,

The movie covers both parties with facts that you can easily confirm with the help of google or a simple high school history/ social studies book. .What the democratic party is banking on, is that the thousands of “sheep” won’t go see this movie, attempt to  defy its merit because they know if they did the research, they would discover the very party they support, is actually against them.

I challenge any American to go see this movie, and contradict its material. Tell me he is wrong. That he is making this up. You won’t be able to because he will show  you his references, his material his facts. He did his homework. Will you?

The movie I went to was full, not sold out but full and with several different ethnicity, men and women.  It truly makes you understand the history of both parties dating back to our heritage.  It’s a history lesson/movie and regardless of what party you are favoring, you should go see it to fully understand what has transpired in America. Unfortunately, many will not. Either they do not care enough, want to know the history or simply can’t fathom that the very party they support, is proven to actually be against many things you believe they represent. Sheep don’t think for themselves they want to “be taken care of”.  Time for a C-Gar
