Please-please read and consider a donation. Thank you in advance for any help towards giving my son an advantage. GO FUND ME: My wife and I are giving our son $1,000, so the fund is $1,800
As many of you know (friends/family), and maybe some who do not (patriotic persons/parents), my son was a Marine for 6-years, and now is ARMY. He has come to us with a request that right now we cannot fulfill in total. Where he is asked to serve our nation he will have to have a vigilant eye and keep a tactical advantage. As parents we want to give him any advantage to succeed in a situation for his life and the life of his mates. So we are asking [as parents] for any help in reaching the $2,800 mark for this scope for his rifle he must have chambered at all times. My son will not be in country for his birthday… my 50th birthday is in March… so if you need reasons to give even a dollar… all of it will go for the below TRIJICON VCOG® 1-8X28 RIFLESCOPE (MANUFACTURERS WEBSITE | A video review of the scope can be FOUND HERE)
Professor Clifford Thies has a great post… really an update to a story about the two female graduates from the Ranger School (see the above video for the typical “mass-media” view of the situation)
People magazine reports that the two female “graduates” of Army Ranger school were helped #1 by being given special training preparatory to the course that the men were not given, #2, by being familiarized with the course for land navigation, with which the men are not pre-familiared, and #3 by allowed second chances at challenges for which the men were only allowed one chance. Furthermore, a two-star general intervened mid-way through the Ranger School to make sure that all the instructors understood that at least one female would pass. Obviously, this is the Obamanated Army, the gay- and transvestite-friendly Army, where soldiers are ordered to look the other way when so-called allies commit atrocities, and where women are proven “equal” to men. Physiologically this is a crock of bull. Our species is dimorphic, although not in an exaggerated way.
The males tend to be taller and have greater upper body strength, and the brains are wired in ways that allows them to compartmentalize things (as in kill another human being and somehow not go insane). Women tend to have complimentary endowments. These differences enable us, as a species, to better survive as long as we work together. Given variation among individuals, there is little point to making generalizations based on gender. In terms of most male-oriented occupations, there are above-average women (in terms of the required mix of attributes) capable of being competitive. But, when you start talking about the best of the best of the best, no. It becomes vanishingly rare for a woman to be competitive.
Hopefully, the next Commander-in-Chief will drum all the box-check’ers in the officer corps out of the service, including a certain two-star general; and, give the two female officers who “passed” the Army Ranger course an opportunity to return the meaning of the Ranger tab, by opening a box in which they can place their tabs for safe-keeping until they finish their military careers…
Feminists want equality… but they can only achieve it through augmentation. Or, “special rights.”
Creek Company, 2-4 IN, 4 BCT, 10th Mountain Division Deployment Video OEF XX-XXI
This video spans our 8 month deployment to Afghanistan towards the end of the war from June 2013 to February 2014. During this deployment the company was attached to Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force – Afghanistan.The company moved constantly; conducting combat operations in Nangahar, Laughman, Wardak, Logar, and Ghazni provinces.
This video was created for 2 reasons: -To give the men something to look back on in 10 years and help them remember what they did -To give their families an idea of what their soldiers actually did while they were deployed
I struggled with the idea of posting this to the internet, because as soon as you do, you open yourself up to the comments of the the peanut gallery and armchair quarterbacks. However, I believe that the people who will enjoy this video will far out way the negative nancies. I also posted this for an additional reason. The majority of the country, the media, and big army seems to think that the war in Afghanistan is over. I assure you it is not. There are still thousands of good Americans in harms way fighting and dying over there. Maybe this video will help remind some people of that.
