91A20 11C1P – US Army 1984-1996
As a Paratrooper, I never went out first or last but I did learn how to properly exit a military aircraft in flight.
Carrying a bunch of heavy shit.
I prefer the Left Door but liked Tailgate jumps more. Honestly, it was exciting but I rarely enjoyed it. One fun jump from a Huey, that one I fondly remember.
I Served as a Medic and as an Indirect-fire Infantryman aka MortarMagot. I was a leg then luckily saw the light.
Death From Above – AIRBORNE
In the Army, I learned to walk all day and do what I was told. I was not told to get shot at and I am not a combat veteran.
I did work in the emergency room of a Level 1 Trauma Center at MAMC on Fort Lewis, for nearly 3 years.
A proud member of the Trauma and Cardiac Code Teams. I helped save lives and watched as people died. At Madigan, I saw a lot that haunts me.
In the Army you’re taught Be, Know, Do. In the absence of leadership to take charge.
I have not been brainwashed or indoctrinated again, since leaving the US Army. That is probably why I still love and believe in America, my country.
The U.S.A. Home of the Free and the Brave.
A heads up to the Educational elites, Progressives, Liberals, Democrat, RINO’s, Republicans, Islamists, Jihadists, Anarchists, Communists, Socialist, Fascists, Racist’s and Nazis and Politicians trying to further squash America’s freedoms.
You may not expect to see more bravery in the land of the Free – but quite likely more bravery will soon be visible in the public arena.
Upon seeing & hearing the rantings of LaRaza, BAMN, Antifa, and the Islamic Sharia preachings of Linda Sarsour and her ilk – It’s clear to me. There are enemies within the USA borders.
The Media and government say that thought makes me a racist and anti-religious freedom. That there’s a lot of bullshit.
I’m old fat and out of shape but the blood of a once young combat medic turned drive on airborne infantryman – leading the way with death from above still pumps through my aging heart. Ever since I stepped through the door and swore that oath.
I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
You tell me when does it expire? I don’t think it does. And that’s a serious problem for me today, in the Summer of 2017.
America, our Constitution, and way of life are under attack from enemies within. Those enemies have existed for years. Now it’s clear, they’ve infiltrated our government and bureaucracies at every level.
No one I know wants bloodshed or civil war. But voting hasn’t changed things, nor has letters, emails, or phone calls to those elected representatives of “we the people.”
The war of words and meme’s on social media is of no help at all. In fact, IMO social media only fuels our divisions. While the Media is executing a coup ensuring nobody knows what’s true or fake. We’re all convinced the other guy is lying.
I’ve stayed semi-silent hoping our leaders would correct the problems. But they seem quite ineffective, ignorant or inept. Or perhaps they just don’t care.
Mr. President what would you have us to do?
