Those of us old enough, know that General of the Army (5 Stars), General Douglas MacArthur spoke these words in front of Congress when he was forced to Retire.

I was recently asked by someone as to whether or not I thought the Vietnam War was a righteous war or not. We say that World Wars I and II were righteous because we fought against those who sought to dominate us and then destroy us. We fought against the United Soviet Socialist Republic, the […]

Modern day Aviators VS Old School Aviators This explains it all. Aviators come from a long line of a secret society, formed around one thousand years ago. Old School Phu Khen (pronounced Foo Ken) 1169-? is considered by some to be the most under-recognized military officer in history.  Many have never heard of his contributions to […]

At least the war protesters were protesting a war and therefore they were united. With these people, the only thing that they are united about is […]
