Thoughts for Memorial Day

    Thoughts for Memorial Day

    Those of us who live a civilian life can never fully appreciate the degree of sacrifice borne by those who wear the uniform, especially those who serve in dangerous theaters.  We certainly can never fully relate to those families whose loved ones have given the ultimate sacrifice for this great nation. But as we remember those fallen heroes this Memorial Day, we must commit to | Read More »

    Well, first post, so here goes.

    Hey. This is my first post on RedState, and I really don’t know how I should properly introduce myself. So, I’ll begin with a little background: as of July 11, 2012, I’m an 18 year-old college student who’s a conservative… except you probably already knew the latter. That’s pretty much all there is to me, except for I’m a grammar Nazi (I wish there was | Read More »

    The Last Full Measure of Devotion

    Names like Gettysburg, Iwo Jima, and Arlington will forever be remembered as the final resting places for thousands of American heroes.  Those who gave the “last full measure of devotion” for their country truly are heroes– even better than the ones in comic books and fairytales, because these are the real kind.  Our soldiers are the foundation of what keeps America strong.  They and their | Read More »

    Career Colleges Provide Opportunities To Veterans

    I joined the United States Armed Forces because of the love that I have for my country. I’m proud of my service, and that of my fellow soldiers. One of the valuable lessons I learned while serving is that the military always takes care of its own. As a U.S. Army Reservist, and the spouse of an Active Duty Soldier that is currently deployed, I | Read More »

    Another TSA Outrage

    UPDATE: I’m getting a lot of emails asking if this is actually true and is this person actually someone I know. (1) Yes it is true — it is too absurd to be made up. (2) Yes, I know the person.——–A friend of mine sent me this about his TSA experience. He, unlike most of us, was coming back into the country from Afghanistan on | Read More »

    Victory In Iraq – Join Me In Celebrating Our Troops Since The President Won’t

    After seven years of deadly combat and sacrifice our tremendous troops are coming home from Iraq, victorious over an enemy whose ruthless tactics against our soldiers and civilians cost thousands of lives. But our best and bravest not only prevailed but are returning home in triumph. While we mourn the 4415 who gave the last full measure of devotion in defending this Nation against the | Read More »

    Obama actually reads a law

    It would seem that The Won has actually taken the time, and briefed his Tele-Promp-Ter on the application of that law. Fitting, in view of Thursdays attack in Texas, the President has ordered flags to half-staff until sunset on Veterans Day, 11/11. For once, good proper use of presidential authority: Flag Code of the United States By order of the President, the flag shall be flown at | Read More »

    Remembering Our Veterans: My Best Fourth of July

    by Michael Mandaville www.CitizenSoldierHandbook.com Our Heroes are everywhere.  They pass by us at the market. They work for us. They walk our streets. I’m talking about the men and women of our Armed Forces who serve and have served our country ably, courageously and without acclaim. We all know one such individual.  They don’t talk much about it, except with hesitation and humility.  And they believe that | Read More »

    The Last Full Measure Of Devotion

    They came from every corner of our nation representing our best and bravest. They fought in places whose names have become familiar to us not because the field had any great significance but because of what they so bravely did there. Places like Trenton, Valley Forge, Antietam, Gettysburg, the trenches of WWI, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Porkchop Hill, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Basra, Kuwait City, Asadabad, Baghdad, | Read More »

    A Memorial Day Prayer

    For all the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines.  For the Guardsmen, and Reservists.  Honor everlasting belongs to you.  Soldiers of America.  Your courage is your legacy, and our inspiration.  By your example do we draw strength. For those who gave their lives, and made the ultimate sacrifice.  Words alone cannot express our sorrow.  Our love follows you to the highest heights of Heaven.  You who | Read More »

    The Faith Of Warriors

    cross posted at :http://www.the41stvote.org As Americans, we take our many blessings for granted. Sure, many of us are worried about the economy, our jobs the course we are on. Thankfully, none of us fears a Foreign enemy. Yes I know we have to be diligent and guard against terrorism, but the reality is we have not been attacked on our soil since 9/11. All of | Read More »

    Why Our Soldiers Votes Won’t Be Counted

    In the Sept. 2008 edition of “whistleblower” magazine, Melanie Morgan writes about the bureaurcratic snafus that will cause our overseas active service men and women to NOT have their votes counted. Let me quote her, briefly: “Our government bureacracies and Democratic lawmakers, who hold the keys to fixing this travesty, say they support our troops at the same time they ensure our troops can’t vote. | Read More »
