Memorial Day

Memorial Day (or less commonly called Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the US for remembering and honoring people who died while serving inour Armed Forces. The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, was previously observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.  Some communities, including mine (Grand Rapids, MI) still celebrate it on May 30.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day, particularly to honor those who died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.  

It’s important to preserve our national culture that families, in some way, take the time on this day to honor those of our nation’s military who are no longer with us.

The Bronze Star Medal

The Bronze Star Medal—sometimes called simply “The Bronze Star” was established by Executive Order on 4 February 1944 (later amended). The Bronze Star Medal may be awarded by the Secretary of a military department or the Secretary of Homeland Security with regard to the Coast Guard when not operating as a service in the Navy, or by such military commanders, or other appropriate officers as the Secretary concerned may designate, to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard of the US, after 6 December 1941, distinguishes, or has distinguished, herself or himself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service, not involving participation in aerial flight—

(a) while engaged in an action against an enemy of the US;

(b) while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or

(c) while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the US is not a belligerent party.

The acts of heroism are of a lesser degree than required for the award of the Silver Star. The acts of merit must be less than that required for the Legion of Merit but must nevertheless have been meritorious and accomplished with distinction.

The Bronze Star Medal (without the “V” device) may be awarded to each member of the Armed Forces of the US who, after 6 December 1941, was cited in orders or awarded a certificate for exemplary conduct in ground combat against an armed enemy between 7 December 1941 and 2 September 1945. For this purpose, the US Army’s Combaat Infantryman Badge or Combat Medical Badge award is considered as a citation in orders.

When the medal is awarded by the Army and Air Force for acts of valor in combat, the “V” Decive is authorized for wear on the medal. When the medal is awarded by the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard for acts of valor or meritorious service in combat, the Combat “V” is authorized for wear on the medal.

Officers from the other Uniformed Services of the United States are eligible to receive this award, as are foreign soldiers who have served with or alongside a service branch of the US Armed Forces.

Civilians serving with US military forces in combat are also eligible for the award. For example, UPI reporter Joe Galloway was awarded the Bronze Star with “V” Device during the Vietnam War for rescuing a badly wounded soldier under fire in the Battle of la Drang, in 1965. Another civilian recipient was writer Ernest Hemingway.

 

 

Employers Can’t Support Spouses If We Don’t Let Them

Military spouse job seekers have a decision to make: Do we self-identify during hiring and let employers put their money where their mouths are, or do we slow our complaints that corporate America doesn’t support us?

Almost 400 employers have joined a Defense Department-organized network of companies who have pledged to hire military spouses. Cities are stepping up in partnership with the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program to launch Military Spouse Empowerment Zones (MSEEZ) where local companies are dedicated to spouse hiring. Major corporations such as Starbucks, Amazon, Hilton and Microsoft have spearheaded spouse education and hiring programs that not only give spouses jobs, but also change corporate culture.

And yet many military spouses hesitate to raise their hands and identify as part of the community.

A new survey from Monster, highlights the problem. The survey, conducted in late 2018, included 305 active-duty and veteran spouses as part of a larger veterans’ survey. It found that 45% of respondents view their status as a military spouse as a “barrier” to employment, while over half, 53%, choose not to disclose it when applying for a job.

That perception is warranted. There are few specific statistics to show that employers have historically discriminated against spouses, but there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence from spouses who feel that their status has resulted in rejections.

And there are overall statistics that lend credence to that narrative. While a 2018 Hiring Our Heroes survey of 1,300 spouses showed a 16% unemployment rate, down from 23% in 2015, an astounding 70% said they feel that their education or past work experience is not fully utilized at their current job.

In short, although the unemployment rate has fallen, spouses continue to have trouble finding meaningful, long-term employment.

Increasingly, though, companies say they want to fix that. But will we give them the chance?

Make America Muslim

This 1-minute interview with the Muslim Congress-person from Michigan makes it absolutely clear that the goal of the Islamist leaders is to make America Muslim.  Listen to this speech.  They hope to move towards this goal through public education.  This, to me, is it total violation of our Constitution and my desire to be free from having Islam forced on my nation.

General MacArthur at West Point

On 12 May 1962, Douglas MacArthur delivered his famous “Duty, Honor, Country” valedictory speech at West Point.
I was a cadet at the time; he gave his talk at the noon meal. It was very impressive. Here it is.

The World’s Best Snipers

Snipers are a special breed, warriors with a combination of shooting skill, cunning, and patience. Military history has shown that a single sniper in the right place at the right time can change the course of battle, even in the face of overwhelming odds.

Here are the five most legendary among them:

Pregnant Army Soldiers

Army soldiers have more babies in their first two years of enlistment and miss more work as a result than do women in the other military branches, a finding that researchers say is linked to different service policies on birth control education and access at basic training.

Between 2013 and 2016, the birth rate among soldiers in the first two years of military service ranged between 10.1% and 11.4%, while the combined rate for women in the other branches hovered at around 6.4%.

The higher rate among soldiers resulted in an additional .04 deliveries, 3.7 more days of postpartum leave and 28.2 more pregnancy-related non-deployable days per service woman trained than for sailors, airmen and Marines, said Dr. Tim Roberts, a retired Navy commander who now works at Children’s Mercy Kansas City.

Babies themselves may be a joy, but when they aren’t planned, they can upend a service member’s life and affect readiness, Roberts said. Citing studies of service members who left deployments early in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm due to unintended pregnancies, Roberts called it “a problem that has a definite impact on the combat readiness of the troops.”

Mothers in the Navy

Lt. Cmdr. Karen Sankes-Ritland never imagined life outside the military.

Her father was a Marine. Her husband is an explosive ordnance disposal officer. She’s a Naval Academy graduate.

But more than a decade into her career, the strains of family life and a dual-military household were taking a toll. Her father had recently died, her third child needed open-heart surgery, and she was pregnant with her fourth child. Meanwhile, her husband was scheduled to deploy soon.

“I just felt like I was starting to drown,” she said.

Something had to change. She needed a break. But she didn’t want to leave the Navy.

So after her fourth child’s arrival in 2016, she took advantage of a program that lets enlisted sailors and officers take a sabbatical. For a year, she was a stay-at-home mom.

“I will forever be grateful for that year off because that was a very important time for me to be able to spend that time with my very young children,” she said. “And I can tell you stay-at-home moms definitely have a really tough job. Very tough, but very rewarding.”

She returned to the Navy in 2017 and now serves as the training officer aboard the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush. The time off rejuvenated her. She said it made her a better officer.

DashCam Video of Pilot Ejecting

Dashcam footage from a freeway commuter shows the moment a pilot ejected from an F-16 military jet, releasing a parachute before the aircraft slammed into a Riverside County warehouse.

The pilot had reported hydraulic problems with the single-engine Fighting Falcon before bailing. The pilot planned to return to the March Air Reserve Base on the other side of the freeway, but was instead forced to eject from the aircraft.

After ejecting from the jet and deploying a parachute, the pilot landed safely in a nearby field. The unmanned jet then crashed into the See Water Inc. warehouse, west of the airfield.

The footage, shot by YouTube user James Dyer, focuses on the road ahead as traffic moves along steadily. The jet appears suddenly in the upper-left frame, plummeting downward. A burst of smoke appears as the pilot ejects, and the plane glides at a distance into the center of the frame. Traffic slows, then comes to a stop.

The crash ruptured the building’s sprinkler system. In the midst of the debris, water can be seen pouring from the roof.

The jet was flying with a standard armament package. The area around the crash and several nearby businesses were closed, and once secured, the ordnance was detonated in a nearby field.

No one was seriously injured in the crash. Ten people were treated in an emergency room and three others were taken to a hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. The pilot was taken to a hospital and released in good condition.

The Coming American Civil War

This writer’s viewpoint is that our “Cultural Wars” are expanding and growing in lots of areas and he sees us erupting into full-fledged Civil War maybe as soon as 3 years from now. I don’t think so, but when you peel back the layers to the violence in America that is not just criminal violence, we find that the vast bulk of the violence comes from folks on the left side of the political spectrum… That has been true since Lincoln’s Assassination, and it continues to be true today.

Black Women at West Point

Thirty-two black women will graduate from the US Military Academy at West Point this month — the largest class of black women in the school’s history.

The news comes just a year after Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams became the first black officer to assume command at the 216-year-old academy, and Simone Askew became the first black woman to lead the Corps of Cadets.

Some of the graduates recently posed for photos to memorialize this significant moment in history.

“My hope when young black girls see these photos is that they understand that regardless of what life presents you, you have the ability and fortitude to be a force to be reckoned with,” cadet Tiffany Welch-Baker told Because of Them We Can, a website that features black news and photographs.

More Really Inappropriate Actions by Military Prosecutors

Military prosecutors in the case of a Navy Seal charged with killing and ISIS prisoner in Iraq in 2017 installed tracking software in emails sent to defense lawyers and a reporter in an apparent attempt to discover who was leaking information to the media, according to lawyers who told The AP that they received the corrupted messages.

The defense attorneys said the intrusion may have violated constitutional protections against illegal searches, guarantees to the right to a lawyer and freedom of the press.

“I’ve seen some crazy stuff but, for a case like this, it’s complete insanity,” said attorney Timothy Parlatore. “I was absolutely stunned … especially given the fact that it’s so clear the government has been the one doing the leaking.”

Parlatore represents Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, who has pleaded not guilty to a murder count in the death of an injured teenage militant he allegedly stabbed to death in 2017 in Iraq. Gallagher’s platoon commander, Lt. Jacob Portier, is fighting charges of conduct unbecoming an officer for allegedly conducting Gallagher’s re-enlistment ceremony next to the corpse.

The case against Gallagher, a decorated SEAL, has attracted the attention of congressional Republicans who have called for prosecutors to drop the case. And President Trump tweeted in March that Gallagher was being transferred to less restrictive confinement to honor “his past service to our country.”

Bombers to the Mid-East

The B-52 Stratofortress bombers that deployed to the Middle East this month to counter unspecified threats from Iran have begun patrols over the Persian Gulf, Air Forces Central Command (AFCENT) said.

“The B-52s were deployed to US Central Command to defend US forces and deter any aggression. They have begun flying deterrence missions in the region, including over the Arabian Gulf,” AFCENT spokeswoman Maj. Holly Brauer said in an email.

CNN reported that F-15C Eagles and F-35A Joint Strike Fighters that were already deployed to the Middle East for operations in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan have joined the B-52s for “visible patrols” over the Persian Gulf. 

A defense official confirmed on background that the aircraft have begun “show of presence” flights over the gulf.

The US Constitution

When members of our Armed Forces are sworn in, we all take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the US against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  The entire document, including all amendments, takes slightly less than 7600 words.  We veterans and, indeed, all patriots, should read this document over and over again.  It’s not complicated.

The 2nd Amendment is not about protecting citizens’ right to hunt.  It’s about the citizens’ right to protect themselves—even from our own government.

There are two national organizations that are focused on making our nation aware of, and practicing, the Constitution—and I’m active in both of them.  First is Concerned Veterans for America (cv4a.org).  Then, there’s Combat Veterans for Congress (CVC.org).

 

 

Unintentionally Funny

Our military loves slapping an acronym on anything that moves. Actually, things that don’t move are equally likely to be described with a jumble of letters when words would do the trick just fine. Sometimes it’s obvious that the acronym-izer should’ve put more thought into the process, and we get some unintentionally hilarious descriptors.

Please Participate

On Veterans Day we began a new program—and I still need your help—I’m quickly running out of stories.  On each show we honor a deceased military person—not the super stars, but the average soldier, sailor, marine, airman or coastie.  They don’t have to have served in combat—but must have served honorably, on active duty or in the guard or reserves. Send me about 250 words summarizing his or her service—that I’ll read on the show.  Sent the info to me at denny@FrontlinesOfFreedom.com.

 

 

Military Music

One of the songs we cadets sang—especially around graduation time, was Army Blue. The only recording of it I could find was this one by some good-old-boys.  The words are correct, but we cadets sang it quite differently.  Here is Army Blue.

Humor  

A retired Army officer sent this in.  It’s both hard and easy to believe.

A DC ‘airport ticket agent’ offers some examples of why the US is in so much trouble! I love this as the ticket agent actually names the names—I cannot vouch for accuracy:
        
1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusets ‘
Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa.” His response — click.

3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.
He replied, ‘Don’t lie to me! I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!” (OMG)

4. I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada?” 
I said, ”No.” She said, ”But they look so close on the map” (OMG, again!)

5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.” (Aghhhh)

6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 am and got to Chicago at 8:33 am.  I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?”
I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’
He replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”
After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, CA is (FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.

8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?”

9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright from Ala. who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?” I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.”

10. Senator Dianne Feinstein called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?”
I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane.  She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”

11. Mary Landrieu, La. Senator, called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. “Oh, no I don’t. I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those”
I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!”

12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, “I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.”
I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, “Are you sure that’s the name of the town?”
 “Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the man.
After some searching, I came back with, “I’m sorry, sir, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a rhino anywhere”
The man retorted, “Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is.  Check your map!”
So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, “You don’t mean Buffalo, do you?”
The reply? “Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”
