  • You can put me on the list of admirers. I am proud to have known two MOH recipients. Salvatore Giunta is of that mold, and character.

    My special thanks to him, and all the young folk serving this country, and world freedom.

    You think about young men and women like Sal Giunta, and then your blood boils at the festering puke that is someone like Harry Reid.

    Harry Reid, a man who damages just about everything he touches. A man who declared that the blood spilled by our sons and daughters was a lost cause. Harry Reid who then has the gonads to whine and cry about cowboy poets. Harry Reid, who won re-election by union thuggery and the of votes of illegals.

    (Geez Sam, tell us how you really feel!)

    Sal Giunta's pals died for the just and unjust, that is the irony.

    Remember, we have someone on our Supreme Court who worked to ban recruiters on the Campus of the Harvard indoctrination and holier-than-thou Center.

    Another hero in the mold of Sal Giunta was booed and heckled at Columbia, where a bunch of leftist idiots feel that they can pass judgements on real heroes. Idiots because their brains have been destroyed by America hating Marxist professors.

    Ochosinco - One of my friends, in her thirties, told me that she was a bit tired of my negative posts. I wanted to cry, I really did, because I don't see much to be positive about, especially when you see people like our pal, Michael Hendricks, who cries and cries about how unfair we all are to Barack Obama.

    My God! You have to shake your head. This man Obama, who has been the beneficiary of the sacrifices of real men, and man who has been completely blessed by the system he, and his wife, hate so much. And Michael cries about about it. Boo Hoo, poor little Obama.

    Hard to keep your lunch down after reading that kind of delusion.

    Thirty five years ago, I remember my mother and I had similar discussions. I thought mom was harsh, and was needlessly worried. It is stunning, how everything she warned me about, came true.

    If I had only taken her warnings to heart, and worked to stop the leftists infiltration of just about everything. I know there were allot of moms who warned their sons 35 years ago. If only more would have listened.

    When you are young, who wants to hear that your future may be in jeopardy?

    By the time many of our thirty year olds realize what is happening because of Socialists like Obama, it may be too late. Our grandkids will be slapped into the chains of serfdom.

    Until liberals are defeated, there is not so much to be positive about.

    Unless you consider those on the front lines of sanity. Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Henry Cain, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, etc.

    Keep up the fight.

  • Thanks Sam!! Excellent post. I met a man in his nineties in Charleston SC in 1967 when I was stationed there at Charleston AFB. He was a CMH winner from WWI. He fought alongside Sgt. York. We must have talked for over an hour before it was time for him to board his flight to Germany. I don't remember the man's name, but it was an honor to get to know him for that brief time. He showed me a copy of the citation he carried with him that he had laminated. He was wearing the 13 star rosette on his lapel. He said it was pretty nice having Generals salute him first after he received the award. I salute all our heroes, dead or alive, who chose to serve the greatest country ever blessed by God to exist.
