Remembering Our Troops far from Home this Christmas Season

bef8a0adf88875f399bdd55307a14aae

 Here we are on yet another Holiday Season.

Christmas is hard on young troops that are sometimes away from home for the first time in their lives.

All of them are volunteers…..

They all volunteered to put their lives and limbs on the line to defend this Country.

What an honorable, courageous example of true Patriotism.

Many,…too many,  have suffered the loss of their life or limbs to fill the ranks of the greatest military that has ever existed.

Many come back with memories that they cannot escape from for the rest of their lives

Some people say that the congress needs to grow a spine and stand up to Obama.
That I would agree with, however, they have been given the chance and have failed miserably.

Congress has no spine.

It has become a constant effort for ‘We the People’ to keep up with the corruption that the Washington White House exudes on almost a daily basis.

But,…..
America does have a spine, and it is in uniform, serving this Country all across the world.

Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard.

The spine is steel and trained and experienced and ready to confront the enemy.

They are the pride of America.

Remember them this Holiday Season because they wish that they could be with you.

However, they have duties to perform to defend their Country.

God Bless America.

DECEMBER 7th 1941….. Inspires a letter to Obama

pearl-harbor-100days-g_1cd730

 Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation
” America is arrogant”

– (Your wife even
announced to the world,” America is mean-
spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching
that nonsense to 23 generations of our
war dead buried all over the globe who
died for no other reason than to free a
whole lot of strangers from tyranny and
hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.

 To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy.  That’s not our greatest threat.  Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

Is it any wonder we call them

“The Greatest Generation”

Hat tip to Bay Back Woman for these fact filled links:

His agenda is so transparent! take out all those in authority in the army that will not agree in the shooting of Americans and keep those that are traitors! Those in command that have been demoted or fired from the Armed Forces are against to usurper of the WH and they shall and will lead against him when the right time comes!

Article regarding the Military purge of our commanding generals, a must read: it coincides with your article:

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/11/11/330695/

The other article is from the New York Times on the overall military purge of our armed forces and captains, etc. getting pink slipped right on the battlefields, it has been going on for awhile now and is getting worse.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/13/us/cuts-in-military-mean-job-losses-for-career-staff.html?_r=0

This article from Veterans Today coincides with your topic on Russia making moves but this is in the Black Sea where US provoked them and notice US seamen resigned later. Very interesting factual article here:

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/11/13/aegis-fail-in-black-sea-ruskies-burn-down-uss-donald-duck/

From USA Today and many top international news sources wrote the same on this new topic which happened 3 days ago: Russia Flexing Musles into Gulf of Mexico

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/11/12/nato-russia-troops-ukraine/18905517/

I spent all day yesterday reading about Russia that is why I am so up-to-date and their ploy in Gulf of Mexico is a retaliation of our sub in the Black sea which backfired as you will see in the VT story http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/11/13/aegis-fail-in-black-sea-ruskies-burn-down-uss-donald-duck/
and research and continue studying BRICS and their new agenda. This is so important as it is the attack on our economy and our US$ which may collapse but it will definitely weaken substantially.

So I guess the answer to the question:

Is America Prepared for World Warlll  NOPE, were not!

Russian Military Activity in Europe’s Airspace Is ‘Dangerous,’ Says U.K.

_78931703_russ_nato_incidents_map624v3

‘We Are Responding,’ Says U.K. Defense Minister as He Discusses Issue With European Peers

“We’ve seen larger [Russian] formations, going further,” Mr. Fallon told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. “On Oct .31, we saw Russian aircraft go past Norway, past Denmark, past the U.K., past Ireland, all the way down to Portugal. Portugal and Ireland are of no concern to Russia.”

Described the recent Russian aircraft activity as unnecessary, Mr. Fallon said “it’s illegal and doesn’t conform to the conventions of international aviation. It’s provocative, it’s intimidating and frankly it’s dangerous.”

Russian aircraft that don’t file flight plans or that maintain no radio contact are posing a risk to civil aviation, according to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO has recorded more than 100 intercepts of Russian aircraft in European airspace so far this year, three times the total last year.

Asked whether the Russians were increasing their activity to test Western defense capabilities, Mr. Fallon said: “if they are, we are responding.” The 12 countries meeting in Oslo Thursday discussed closer cooperation on the sharing of data and intelligence on the Russian airspace activity, he added.

The Oslo meeting included ministers of defense from the Baltic and Nordic countries, and the U.K., as well as representatives from Poland, Iceland, the Netherlands and Germany, and comes at a time of increased Russian military activity on land and at sea.

“There’s clearly concern about that, and that’s one reason I’m here today,” Mr. Fallon said.

Russia on Wednesday sent fresh convoys of troops and tanks into eastern Ukraine, according to NATO. Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Moscow will extend its long-distance aerial missions as far as the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

“The security situation in Europe has changed fundamentally,” Estonia’s Defense Minister Sven Mikser told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Thursday, adding that Europe should respond to Russia’s military buildup and increased military spending. “Strength is a language that (President Vladimir) Putin understands.”

“We see increased Russian military activity, for instance aircraft activity and exercises, both in the northern areas and the Baltic Sea region. A major part of our discussions has been how to address this,” said Norway’s Defense Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide.
