    Mark Steyn's Appreciation of Patrick Macnee is Terrific. Interesting info., Mr. Macnee was a nudist, and was raised by his mother and her partner, Uncle Evelyn. Much more. And the picture accompanying the column is perfect. RIP.

    Tammy was right. Who could've seen that coming? Anyone with an IQ above room temperature. The “transformation” continues TAMS. Makes me want to cry.

    Satellite Defense? This sounds too good to be true on the Pentagons budget.The U.S. electrical grid needs attention too.

    Here we go! It’s not hard to see that Army heritage and history will be the next target for the Left’s campaign to erase selected portions of our history. It’s also an opportunity for the Left to demonize the US Army. Give it your best shot. We are “Army Strong” and you are going to need a few more balls in your cannon.

  • QE2 to visit Bergen-Belsen

    Jun 24, 2015 @ 12:10 pm - Alain

    On Friday, Queen Elizabeth II will visit Bergen-Belsen camp which was liberated by British soldiers.

    Anne Frank died in B-B from typhus. The link is a very long (horrifying) web information on the liberation. The camp's turnover was negotiated because of the typhus epidemic and the fear of infecting soldiers.

    Info. ends with this: “Between April 11 and April 14, all prisoners in the camp who were still able to work were recruited to help with burial of the corpses. While two prisoner's orchestras played dancing music, 2000 inmates dragged the corpses using strips of cloth or leather straps tied to the wrists or ankles. This monstrous spectacle went on for four days, from six in the morning until dark. Still, there were 10,000 rotting corpses remaining in the camp.”

  • At Army Ranger School, admiration – and frustration – in assessment of women

    Jun 23, 2015 @ 9:41 pm - COL R

    “It’s an equal opportunity project,” shrieked Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness. Her demeaning characterization of the active duty military service of these young women reveals much about Donnelly none of it very favorable. The reason for her scorn is their desire to graduate from the Army Ranger School and be awarded the coveted Ranger Tab. I am more than confident these soldiers don’t want any special treatment just fair treatment. Pass or fail these young women knew they would be subjected to public ridicule and yet they pressed on and did it anyway. That is called demonstrated personal courage which should be lauded and applauded. So I say to these young women I know you will “drive on” and leave nothing on the field and I am proud of you.
