Army Cutting 500 Majors Starting Next Week


This administration, through the military sequestration process has lowered your US military to bare bones number, without reducing the missions as posted here, here and here. Many people I speak with are like “what’s sequestration?” Well, point blank, it’s a Massive reduction your military protection. By cutting, giving pink slips, firing, however you want to shape it, this administration has lowered America’s fighting force to bare bones. The Marine Corps has taken a very hard hit as has the Army but as you can see below, the Army continues to hit.

A major element that many congressman etc that are making these decisions don’t think about is all of these Marines and Army joes etc they are letting go has three major implications:

  1. Most of the warriors being let go are combat hardened service members. Once they are gone we will have a very thin and novice military force. Think about all of the warriors who have done multiple Afg/Iraq deployments and are now gone. Once you lose that experience, it’s very hard to replace.
  2. The civilian job market is hammered by veterans dismissed in bulk. Unemployment is not getting better folks.
  3. You military is very thin. Currently the Marine Corps has dozens missions that are trying to fill with less than required Marines. Does that make sense to you?In a time when terrorism is gaining momentum, the war in Afghanistan is in a stalemate because we have stopped the attack on the enemy and simply are just sitting on bases marking time, Iraq spins out of control, your administration cuts the military beyond that of typical democrat, levels.

We are weak and vulnerable. Point blank. Time for a C-Gar


About 500 Army majors, some of them now serving in Afghanistan, will begin receiving notices next week that they must leave the service as the Army cuts troop strength to meet budget cuts, the outgoing Army vice chief of staff said Friday.

"We don't want to do this," but the Army has no choice under the constraints of the Budget Control Act and the Congressional sequester process, said Gen. John F. Campbell. Read full story here

If he isn't down, why are you? - Motto Monday

Don't for one second think, ugh, Monday's suck, unless you are in the same situation as this warrior. If your not, suck it the hell up! I don't care if your "Monday" has 100 meetings, a large chore list etc etc. If you aren't a quadruple amputee and have been through combat like this warrior, don't start telling me about how your Monday was tough or whine about free education or any bullshit. Get into your day and kick ass, because this warrior is!

Time for a C-Gar

This weekend 22 widows and 35 children will be honored for a first-of-a-kind event in the nation.

Much like the Honor Flights to our nation’s capital for veterans, this one is for Nebraska “Gold Star Kids” -- youngsters who've lost loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan.

They'll fly from Omaha to Lincoln for a day of events, highlighted by the launching of gold balloons carrying hand-written messages. Those will be released right after the National Anthem for the Nebraska – Michigan State game on Saturday.

Every so often, Shane Kielion Junior finds himself flipping through a scrapbook about his father.

He loves the football pictures. Especially since the fifth grader just started playing football himself this year. His dad had been quarterback at Omaha South.

“Sometimes it makes me sad but most of the time I don't think about the bad stuff – I think about the good stuff,” said Shane. Read full story here
