Talking Syria raid on FOX & Friends

We executed a brilliant raid into Syria, ventilated a bunch of bad guys and got all our folks home safe. Bravo!.

But why did we tell the whole world about the raid before we even had a chance to catalogue the intel we picked up? This compromised our ability to exploit that  intel properly and seems like another example of Obama spiking the football on an extra point.

We also still have no strategy in Iraq and may as well be acting as the Iranian Air Force as they are the Iraqis main allies now. Not that the fight there is even going at all well, with Ramadi falling. So Yay for dead tangos, and Boo for all the rest.


Paratroopers Get New Toys - The Light Tactical All Terrain Vehicle

The 1-325th Airborne Infantry Regiment is the first conventional U.S. Army unit using the LTATV. The Red Falcons and 2BCT serve as the nucleus of America's Global Response Force for the 82nd ABN DIV. They can be rapidly-deployed anywhere in the world in 18 hours. The Falcon Brigade is integrating the LTATV as a part of this highly deploy-able mission set.

[Gotta get me one of those!]


"Dogs of War" on A&E

From the folks at A&E:

DOGS OF WAR spotlights combat veteran Jim Stanek, who returns home struggling with PTSD. He looks into getting a service dog to help him heal, only to discover how expensive they are, and how long the wait to be paired with one is. So he starts his own nonprofit to rescue dogs from kill shelters, train them as service dogs and partner them with struggling veterans at little or no cost.

The show premieres Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 10PM ET/PT and then moves to Sundays at 10PM ET/PT beginning Nov. 16.

In an era when most reality TV is hypersexualized, about cutthroat competition or designed solely to make us laugh at the culture of its “stars,” it is so refreshing to be associated with a series like this, which spotlights a man who uses the greatest pain in his life to offer the greatest comfort to the lives of others. 

Dogs of War is really the culmination of the work that Jim and Lindsey Stanek have done with their charity - Paws and Stripes.  Jim and Lindsey found the perfect intersection of veterans needing a companion to deal with feeling isolated and shelter dogs (most likely heading to an untimely death) needing a home.  In turn, they rescue each other.

Catch "Dogs of War" on A&E this Veterans Day.  Spread the word!

B5, Out.


What Did Ranger Up Know and When Did They Know It?

They posted this NSFW video back in March (and we posted it here).  Seems like they already knew about problems in the VA.  It makes you wonder how Ranger Up was all over it, but folks like Senator McCain are shocked, SHOCKED!, I tell you.

Also, Ruby Flippers? Nicely played, Rangers. Nicely played.


Palate Cleanser - Gunny Bryan Wallgren's John Glenn Speech

The initial assault on Marjah, Afghanistan, was about to commence in February 2010. 1/6 was going in to a Taliban stronghold laden with IEDs, snipers, and insurgents.  Around 8,000 ground forces and 7,000 support troops were involved including American, British, French, Canadian, Estonian and Danish forces under ISAF Command.  After speeches to the Marines by the officers, Gunnery Sergeant Bryan Wallgren, A/1/6, decided to really motivate his Marines...his words were the last they heard before boarding the helos...

He received a Commendation Medal with V for Marjah. And some of you might have been one of his students at the JWTC 14 years ago...
