February 2, 2012


I am about to enter into an area for which I am not sure how I will come out of it. I have talked about War Protesters before. Those were civilian war protesters. This post will deal with Veteran War Protesters. I hadn’t given a lot of thought to Veterans as war protesters. I started […]

Aviators Old and New

December 19, 2011


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 […]

When I use the words him, his, men on this site I mean his/hers he/him/she and men/ women One of the effects of PTSD is the “Why did I make it home and not Bill”. Now Bill has over 58,000 different names. I just used Bill.  No one effect of PTSD is any worse than another. Each […]

The events that took place on March 16, 1968 effected not only the villagers of My Lai , the soldiers involved but every soldier that served after that day. I had begun to write about McNamara’s 100,000 but as I was doing my research I ran across a posting on the web that redirected my […]

April 20, 2010

Why was the protesting of the Vietnam War wrong? The “Hippie” is what most people think of when they think of the Vietnam War […]
