About Me

The efforts of our forces to win the War on Terror.

“War is mainly a catalogue of blunders.”
Winston Churchill

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.”
Winston Churchill

I was stationed on board USS Enterprise (CVN-75), USS Constellation (CV-64), USS Ranger (CV-61), USS Henry B. Wilson (DDG-7), USS Fletcher (DD-992), Maritime Preposition Squadron Ships Three and various shore commands. I support the allies of the United States, people who support historical truth (without regard to who it may embarrass or offend) and want everyone to live in peace.

Put on a uniform.

Build a command structure.

Fight under decent, civilized rules of warfare.

Establish a political structure that negotiations can be made through.

Then you are not a terrorist.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands of those who feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you. May posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”—Samuel Adams

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she. With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.” — Mark Twain

“The success of freedom rests upon the choices and the courage of free peoples, and upon their willingness to sacrifice.” George W. Bush

Now the men of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal, and Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, “You know what the LORD said to Moses the man of God at Kadesh Barnea about you and me. 7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to explore the land. And I brought him back a report according to my convictions, 8 but my brothers who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt with fear. I, however, followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly. 9 So on that day Moses swore to me, ‘The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly.’ [a]

10 “Now then, just as the LORD promised, he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the desert. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. 12 Now give me this hill country that the LORD promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the LORD helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.”

13 Then Joshua blessed Caleb son of Jephunneh and gave him Hebron as his inheritance. 14 So Hebron has belonged to Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite ever since, because he followed the LORD, the God of Israel, wholeheartedly. 15 (Hebron used to be called Kiriath Arba after Arba, who was the greatest man among the Anakites.) Then the land had rest from war.

“Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one.”
Benjamin Franklin
