War Games

The kind of mindset (via Drudge) I never want to see from anyone even remotely tied to our nation’s military:

“Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.”

Yeah, it’s just a retired Colonel and some no-good civilian “Civil War expert,” but the article was published in what was termed a “respected” military journal.

Also, there was a stir twenty years ago about a military coup article, but at least it contained a disclaimer that the scenario was “purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction.”

No disclaimer this time.

People who like to play expert with respect to things about which they really have no expertise nor understanding whatsoever . . . well.  Hopefully their foolish words are meaningless.

I, for one, know no military members willing to engage in this type of operation.

Former Seal Team Six Commander Starts New PAC: Special Operations for America

Montana State Senator and former Commander of Seal Team Six, Ryan Zinke, has had it with Obama spiking the Osama football and gutting the military and has formed a new Political Action Committee dedicated to defeating Obama and his cronies this November.

Zinke and Major General Paul Vallely have joined forces to form Special Operations for America .

Here’s their Mission Statement:

■Special Operations for America (SOFA) is committed to a strong and independent military that is capable of defending America’s freedoms and interests.
■SOFA is dedicated to restoring strong leadership to the Office of the Commander-in-Chief and those senior officials appointed by the President.
■SOFA believes in American exceptionalism along with leadership that does not minimize American greatness or politicize military achievements for personal gain.
■SOFA pledges to accurately address issues that affect our military and those core threats to National Security.
■SOFA will identify and provide accurate information on policies that harm or discredit our national security and those who bravely protect us.

Bush 43 would never have defeated John Kerry without the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in 2004, who exposed Kerry as a fraud.

It’s time to send in the Special Forces in 2012! OooRah!!!!


American Hero Project

The American Hero Project was founded in 2012 starting with a Facebook page as a way to remember the fallen. There have been many memes on Facebook associated with the decline the media gives to air stories of fallen soldiers and that is a valid point, therefore, they are seeking to rectify the lack of attention that fallen soldiers receive. They will honor their sacrifices in a dignified manner and give their life a story. The American Hero Project website and the Facebook group is dedicated to the fallen heroes of the Afghanistan & Iraq wars.

The American Hero Project was founded by Dustin DeMoss (an Air Force veteran) and Clint Davis (a Navy veteran). They both envision American Hero Project becoming a non-profit dedicated to remembering fallen heroes from all wars and promoting veteran’s issues at the same time.

Memorial Day Thoughts

I know that every one of you readers are patriots who love this nation and understand the sacrifices that help make it great.

Here at the No One house, we remember all the fallen on Memorial Day.  Yet, there is one we remember and miss every day.  I keep personal stuff under wraps most of the time, but Robert was an extraordinary fellow and worth sharing.  We were so blessed to have him in our lives for a time.

The Marine Corps was his true calling; above all else he wanted to serve his country.  A few years before 9/11 (back when we were young and gonna live forever), he introduced both my husband:

Robert giving Mr. No One his first salute

And me to military life:

“Welcome to the Navy, Mrs. No One.”

The military life has been a good one.  I just wish Robert were still part of it.  Semper Fi, buddy.

I hope everyone has a blessed day, and maybe some comfort from sorrow, should you need it.

Update on Richmond Parade for the Troops Fundraiser

The Parade date and location haven’t changed, but the date and location of the fundraiser have.

Previously it was mistakenly reported that the fundraiser was scheduled for tomorrow night.  There was some missed communication there.

It is now scheduled for next Tuesday night, May 15th at O’Tooles, starting at 6:30.  O’Tooles is in south Richmond, down the Boulevard and across the James River.

4800 Forest Hill Avenue.

Be there, if you can.  It should be a good time.

Sorry for the previous misinformation.


Richmond, VA Welcome Home and Thank You, Heroes Parade

Commentary vets

I’m very pleased to share information from Concrete Bob from United Conservatives of Virginia about the Welcome Home and Thank You Parade, Saturday May 19th, Armed Forces Day at 10am.

Attn: Virginians, Marylanders, North Carolinians…. Make your calendar entry now.

The route is from the Virginia Historical Society (Boulevard at Kensington) down to the Carillon.

Bob is volunteering as Site Coordinator for the Veterans Resource Center and Job Fair. If any local businesses would like to recruit newly arriving vets or offer resources for organizations that provide  veteran support services, please go over to United Conservatives of Virginia to work with Bob on this.

Details for the parade are at the UCV website and more details about the Parade to Thank our Vets are here and here.

Also, events like this require plenty of money to cover all of the many costs that are incurred. Insurance, tents, extra police and EMTs…trust me, the costs add up in a hurry.  Unless you’ve organized an event you have no idea.

There is a fundraiser at Mulligan’s Tuesday May 8th starting at 5:30pm, or 1730 if you prefer. Mulligan’s is at 1323 W. Main St., Richmond, VA.  I’ll be there, for sure.

Or go directly to AmericaForVets to give.

Here’s the St. Louis Welcome and Thanks Parade from January.  Let’s make Virginia’s just as big, if not bigger.
