Why Iran Is Our Enemy

Why Iran Is Our Enemy
Iran is our enemy. Long before the first Gulf War, even before the taking of the American Embassy in 1979, Iran has been our enemy. If you want to try to justify their hatred of us for the US support of the Shah fifty years ago, you’re not going far back enough in history. And... Read more »

You Hate Trump

You Hate Trump

What To Say – And Not To Say – To A Gold Star

What To Say – And Not To Say – To A Gold Star
The simplest answer is, “I’m sorry for your loss”. Honestly, there is nothing else that needs to be said, nor is there anything else that can be safely said that won’t potentially give offense or cause more pain. But, even those five little words can cause a negative reaction depending on the recipient’s perception of... Read more »

Insurgents Not Terrorists in ObamaSpeak

The Taliban are not terrorists according to this administration. Exactly when that change in designation occurred depends on who you ask. And how far back and where you look.

No More Killed In Action, #NoMoreKIAs

No More KIAs means no boots on the ground in Iraq in response to the beheading of James Foley. For that matter, in response to anything that is not a direct attack on us. By on us, I mean on US soil. I am a member of a very exclusive club and it is our... Read more »

Senator Walsh, PTSD didn't cause you to plagiarize your lack of character did

Senator Walsh has claimed PTSD caused him to plagiarize his War College Master’s thesis. With this ridiculous, dishonorable utterance, Walsh has once again brought the specter of PTSD and the myth of the dangerous veteran into the news. Once again, the general public is being given not just a wrong but a very damaging idea... Read more »

Bowe Bergdahl the Deserter-In their Words

When I first wrote about the release of Bowe Bergdahl, my intention was twofold. First, to set the record straight that Bergdahl was a deserter and second, to question the timing of the resignations of VA Secretary Shinseki and Press Secretary Jay Carney. I contended and still contend the timing of those resignations was intentionally... Read more »

    Views and opinions from the Gold Star, Military and Veteran perspective are generally different from those of the civilian world. Much of what I write is "their" stories, as told to me as the Gold Star Mother of PFC Andrew Meari, KIA 11/1/10 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. This is how I continue to honor the Oath my son took. I don't like labels or boxes as the former is insufficient to describe a person and the latter limits a person but if you insist, call me a Progressive Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
