Afghanistan is more than a Trump set up

I see that posted a lot.

It was the DOD who has been lying for multiple administrations. Both R and D’s

The military has said for many years that the Afghan Army could stand on its on. It collapsed in two weeks.

And once again we have servicemen and women dying, trying to help people. Saving them from the people who will line them up in the soccer stadium again.

That’s who to blame. They’ve been doing this since before Trump or President Biden

Today, let's honor a Legend.

Many of you reached out to ask for a copy of the emotional eulogy Lt. General Erik Kurilla delivered yesterday in honor of Rock Merritt.

We created this video for the world to tell his story.

Please share this video widely.

For those who are not familiar with LTG Kurilla. He’s the guy who got shot in the leg and arm fighting in the streets as an Infantry Lieutenant Colonel.

Go Army!

Fort Bragg says its Twitter account was 'hacked'

Fort Bragg garrison officials say their verified Twitter account was hacked after posts weighing in on the issue of female pubic hair and lustful comments about a nude woman’s picture appeared on the social media website.
The XVIII Airborne Corps spokesman, Col. Joe Buccino, said the garrison has “ruled out any malicious intent” by its public affairs officials. He added that they still don’t have much information about how the incident occurred.

I’m betting it was someone who was getting out in a few days.

They went to one of the accounts that showed boobs and was chatting away.

Battle of Mogadishu

I got out of the Army in 93.

I later became friends with several of the Task Force Ranger and the 5th Special Forces detachment that was ordered to “Hold in place” while TF Ranger had to stand on its own .

I also met several of the 10th Mountain guys and one guy from an engineer unit that was there to help.


They said it’s the most evil place they ever served. Those were soldiers who saw the sectarian violence in Iraq. They said it was completely understandable while everyone pulled out. The whole system couldn’t be changed.

I hope we do a better job of preparing our military for what they see.

I added for more context

House lawmakers unanimously pass bill that would allow Alwyn Cashe to finally receive the Medal of H

“ Lawmakers in the House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation that would allow President Donald Trump to upgrade the Silver Star of Army Sgt. 1st Class Alwyn Cashe to the Medal of Honor, solidifying a step forward in the push to recognize Cashe for his heroic actions in 2005.

The House bill that passed on Tuesday waives the requirement that a service member receive the Medal of Honor within five years of their bravery so that Cashe's award can be upgraded, Military Times reports; language calling for the Medal of Honor was also included in the national defense authorization act this summer. “
