As I watched today's ceremony of Senator McCain, I'm reminded of my time in August 1966, while serving my country in the jungles of Vietnam and the sacrifices all those that SERVED made to our country.

Yes, there were things I didn't like while servicing but it wasn't that I didn't think I needed to be there. My dislikes were the rich and connected didn't have to serve and able-bodied Vietnamese riding scooters with their ladies and the Americans were dying.

Much has been written about the bombing of North Vietnam and the killing of kids. If all possible I wished that hadn't happened. But also I wish I had not witnessed innocent kids, moms, daddies and friendly Vietnamese being slaughtered by the VC's. Witnessed little kids with explosive attached to their bodies walking up to Americans in an attempt to kill and injury.

I wished I hadn't witnessed entering a village of friendly and seeing where the VCs bleed out the bodies of women, kids, and men in an effort to persuade them not to help the South. And to this day, this moment, I wished I has not witnessed seeing my fellow Americans die in front of me. I wish, oh I wish!

 So when I would look up into the heavens and see out aircrafts headed north, I would pray they all would return safely after a successful mission.

This I often share with others. I remembered looking up at the moon when it could be seen through the thickening, thinking that can't' be the same moon I saw in Georgia.

Today, I watched this nation honor a man, who I didn't always agree with, but a man who gave and endured what so many refused to do. For his service I'm thankful!!!

SEMPER FI!!!

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
