This kind of disgusting hate speech towards our military men and women needs to be addressed, and the woman held accountable for her vile words. If she represents her union in any official capacity, one would hope she would be stripped of her title, and that the union would state their support for our veterans. Let’s see how they respond. Please share this article far and wide.

Ft Hood Soldier Charged For Gear After IED Blast

You can’t put a price tag on surviving a deadly attack overseas, but one Fort Hood soldier knows the cost of the helmet that saved his life all too well.

“I had a couple shrapnels in my side plates and in my helmet,” Army Sergeant Michael Williams said about the gear that protected him on June 13, 2011.

Now, more than two years after the day he was wounded by an improvised explosive device in Iraq, he got a “bill” for his shrapnel-pierced helmet.

“I automatically assumed that, you know, that’s the gear that I got blown up in, that I almost died in, and I lost two buddies in, and I didn’t think anything of it.”

A few months after the blast injured his back and head, Mike says he cleared his missing gear with supply personnel, but admits he didn’t continue to regularly check on his status regarding missing gear, like he should have.

Then when he went through finance to medically retire in September, he got a statement of charges.

It lists $280.80 for his helmet, $25.99 for his neck pad, plus $335.42 for other gear that someone stole from a shipping container on the way back from the deployment.

Mike’s leadership says paying the $642.21 total is where Mike went wrong.

“The Soldier’s unit initiated a Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss. While the investigation was in progress, Sgt. Williams voluntarily paid for the missing equipment, now the unit is looking into possible options to help the Soldier,” a 1st Cavalry Division, 3rd Brigade Combat Team Public Affairs Officer said.

For now, Mike is taking the financial hit, while he, his wife and their two kids do what they can to cut back on spending.

He said, “It put me negative. I haven’t been able to pay my mortgage for this month, so I’m kind of behind on that, and then my wife actually pulled some money out of her other account.”

He’s also put off the cost of training for his new civilian career, driving commercial vehicles.

“You know it’s partially my fault, but at the same time, it really should never happen, because I’m not the only person it’s happened to,” Mike said.

Still, he says he’s extremely grateful his unit is trying to find a way to help him.

He medically retires from the Army this month.

The Disgraceful Character of Obama

The Joint Chiefs of Staff also have shown their lack of character and honor. They are cowards who do not have the backs of those who serve under them or of those who have ever served this country! May history remember them as the coward YES MEN that they are!

Badass Tibor Rubin

Tibor Rubin

Tibor Rubin was a Hungarian-born Jewish badass warmongering asskicker who survived a Chinese prison camp, a Nazi concentration camp, single-handedly defended a hill against the entire North Korean army TWICE, was nominated for the Medal of Honor four times, received it once, and lived to tell the tale.

 

In the process he single-handedly saved the lives of 40 of his fellow comrades by breaking out of a hardcore Chinese POW camp, raiding their barracks and stores for food and medical equipment, breaking back in to the prison camp, and then administering it to wounded and starving American troops.  Which would be impressive if he’d only done it one time in his entire life.

Instead he repeated that routine almost every single day for roughly a year and a half, full knowing that being caught just one time or making just one mistake would result in him being thrown into a dark hole and tortured to death in the most excruciatingly painful ways the Chinese Communist torture-farmers could imagine.

WW II Veterans Breach Barriers at World War II Memorial in Washington DC – October 2, 2013

WWII Vets Knock Over Shutdown Barrier to Visit Memorial

 'Greatest generation' veterans sweep past barricades at memorial in their honor

Fox News

What was meant to be a final gathering of heroes Tuesday instead became a final victory for dozens of World War II combat vets who refused to let the government’s budget battle block a visit to their memorial in the nation’s capital.

With bagpipers playing “Amazing Grace,” nearly 200 veterans from Mississippi and Iowa swept past barricades and security guards at the World War II Memorial in Washington in order to keep a commitment to visit the site, which was closed today due to the partial government shutdown. The veterans, in their 80s and 90s, were accompanied by Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., a former Marine who earlier vowed not to let the National Park Police keep them from a planned visit to the open-air monument.

“Well, I would have been so down-and-out if I got all the way up here and wasn’t able to get in,” Navy veteran Oscar Leroy Russell, 90, who is blind after he suffered a stroke, told FoxNews.com.

“I’m not going to enforce the ‘no stopping or standing’ sign for a group of 90 World War II veterans. I’m a veteran myself.”

– U.S. Park Police officer

Some veterans on hand wiped away tears when they saw a crowd waving the American flag as they came out of their bus. Continue reading

VEGA’s LAW FREEDOM 1.3

“Should ANYONE attempt to strip you of the rights you earned in battle as an American Infantrymen (Marine and Soldier alike), shall be stripped of Life and/or limb by the vary hands that defended that Freedom Americans exercise daily. For you were born without rules or regulations, it is the fear of consequence and need for Justice and order that compells us to follow our Countries Laws. Only those worthy enough to fight for We The People shall be trusted to enact and enforce these Laws or suffer the consequence, should such Demon Warriors be made aware of power hungry violators of this trust. War is the province of Men, so tread softly when speaking of disarming those who have mastered it. These corrupt masters of lies and deceit may find themselves where many have met their end; stareing into the eyes of Hell itself, before gasping a final breathe of Freedom before it is taken back by one of its Champions … Chosen Few”- Vega
