If you have never seen this short video, watch it. It’s not long and it makes sense. Some may say "Pain" Veterans Day is over why post this video? My response would be something like this “Hey Jackwagon, everyday should be memorial or veterans day. Too many people take their freaking freedom for granted for those that paid the ultimate price so put a sock in your pie hole hippie” But it may go something like this as well, “Hey, because…..” naaa it would go like the first version.

(Hat tip BuzzPo) She was five years old, just about to turn six and she made a World War II Veteran Cry. She didn’t mean to do it.
In Washington D.C., there is a monument built largely with private funds. It’s not as tall as many of the monuments, it’s not as audacious as those erected for past presidents and founders of our country. It’s really sort of a simple monument, the Monument for WW II Veterans in Washington D.C.,. That’s where it happened.
My Daughter had been on the mall with me and my wife, she played, walked through the congressional hallways and contemplated the height and meaning of the Washington Monument. She still believes in her Nation and her flag. Forgive us for being sentimental–we’re old. That’s her, on a warm day, in little girl clothes, looking up at the tower we built to honor General Washington. Then, we walked to the World War II Monument.
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!
I attended a college football game this weekend and at halftime they honored your military which was pretty cool. It was good to see everyone applauding for their warriors. I guess from my view, I (your service members) we don’t see that view often. We hear about it “hey they honored the military at the game” you might hear but to see it was pretty cool. Now that I have been home for a bit from deployments it’s good to see that kind of stuff. We can hear about it but to see it, is different. Thanks to all of you that honor your warriors like is done below.
This was recorded at Dallas/Ft.Worth International Airport.
As you watch the video, notice the number of people watching from inside the terminal. Most people have no idea Delta does this. Hats off to them. This soldier was a K9 soldier with a dog trained to find IED's. Yes the second small coffin is his partner.
Regardless how your Monday goes, keep it in perspective, it wasn’t that bad. Time for a C-Gar
You read about his possible early release here on One Marine's View and now (with absolutely no help or assistance from the pres) he has been released and is back in the US. You can say all you wan about Pres Bush but at least he, like Pres Reagan, he would have brought our Marine home. Just shows what this administration thinks about the military. Time for a C-Gar
After 214 days in a Mexican prison, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi crossed the US – Mexican border Friday night, boarding a private jet for Florida shortly after 9 p.m., after a strong diplomatic push convinced a judge to release the former Marine on humanitarian grounds.
His release comes after a lengthy trial and a Congressional hearing in September highly critical of Obama Administration efforts to secure his release and Mexico’s refusal to let him go. Tahmooressi said he made an innocent mistake the evening he crossed into Tijuana with three weapons in his truck on March 31.
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.
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.
