    The Pentagon’s top enlisted officer issued a threat Tuesday to the jihadis of the Islamic State that unless they surrender, they'll be beaten to death with Army shovels. The threat comes following a statement on January 1 from The ‎Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, in which they claimed that the Islamic State has lost 98 percent of its territory in Iraq and Syria.Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, who is the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, took to Facebook and posted his threat. Using the hashtags #ISIS_SurrenderOrDie, #SEAC3, #DefeatDaesh, Troxell wrote, "ISIS needs...

    Finally, a real warrior has emerged from the morass of leftist jellyfish trolling through the hallways of the Pentagon. Finally, a real warrior has come forward to speak the truth war is hell and the US military is currently in the process of sending as many ISIS fighters to the gates of Hades where they belong. The news exploded today with the story of the armys senior enlisted man, Command Sergeant Major John Wayne Troxell (you cant make this stuff up) who stated on Tuesday in a Facebook post: ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on...

    The U.S. Army yanked Maj. Gen.Ryan Gonsalves nomination to a third star because it determined that he called a female congressional staffer sweetheart, according toStars and Stripes.This violated the Army Command Policys rule on dignity and respect. An anonymous complaint was filed to the Army Inspector General on July 20. The exchange reportedly happened at a October 2016 meeting at Fort Carson, Colorado. According to the IGs findings, Gonsalves picked on the staffer, who worked for Rep.Jim Langevin(D-Rhode Island 2nd district). He allegedly asked her about her age, and told her to take notes since she was a Democrat and...

    Army atheist yells, God save me, as shells explode by Roger Griffiths This article arose from an exchange of information between CMIs translations facilitator Roger Griffiths and John T. Tolbert, an evangelist working with several language groups in Asia, primarily Vietnamese. Published: 12 December 2017 (GMT+10) John recalls, as a five-year-old, looking up at the sky, and realizing there must be a God. At 17 years, he joined the US Army, which was engaged in the Vietnam War. During basic training, an older colleague, hearing that John believed in God, gave him Mark Twains Letters from the Earth, which lampoons...
  • Did You Catch Navy's Swipe At Army's Commie-Loving Graduate?

    Over the weekend, West Point and Annapolis met in Philadelphia for the annual Army-Navy game. Army clinched sweet victory when Navy kicker Bennett Moehring missed a 48-year field goal attempt. While Navy lost the football game, they can be given credit for some of the trash talking that occurred in the stands. The Naval Academy cadets made sure to let their Army counterparts know about their recent public relations embarrassment over 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, who tweeted support for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, trashed Secretary of Defense James Mattis by calling him an “evil, vile f**k” and said that...

    Tim flagged this in his Saturday post about the annual Army-Navy football game, but I thought it merited its own post, just for maximum exposure.  The game itself resulted in Army's second consecutive dramatic victory, after 14 straight years of Navy triumphs.  Regardless, the performance of the Star Spangled Banner prior to the game, featuring the glee club from each military branch, was really beautiful -- especially amid the lightly falling December snow.  A stirring, patriotic tribute. "Goosebumps" is right:2017 National Anthem at the Army-Navy Game (Video) And here's how the game ended, with apologies to the Midshipmen: NO GOOD....

    Navy midshipmen stand behind "Not Communist" banner. Image via Twitter. The Army-Navy football game has historically been one of the best rivalries in all of sports with fans from both sides displaying creative and insulting signs. Saturday's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was no different. On the Navy side, midshipmen held signs poking fun at their West Point counterparts for allowing admitted communist and Antifa supporter 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone to graduate. As PJ Media reported back in September, photos posted on social media by Rapone showed the then-cadet posing with a Che Guevara t-shirt under...

    Army and Navy met again Saturday afternoon on a snowy field in Philadelphia to play a football game that has been played for over 100 years. The Army-Navy football game is one of the most storied sports traditions in the country. This year marks the 118th time the two teams have met. The teams meet in a neutral city between their respective academies. They often play in NFL stadiums due to the enormous number of active duty and veteran fans who wish to attend. Before the game, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies joined together to sing...

    The Army-Navy game is special, unlike any other. As such, it requires a different introduction than say, Arkansas-Missouri. And I am thrilled to report that CBS Sports was up to the task. Heres the introduction theyll show before kickoff this afternoon. Its powerful without overstepping the line of self-importance. Most impressively, it puts the actual game in proper context.

    Soldiers from the U.S. Armys iconic 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, were the first to field the new M17 pistol this week. The era of the Beretta-made M9 for Army leaders is over with the introduction of Sig Sauers new Modular Handgun System. A select group of soldiers tested M17s on Monday. Roughly 2,000 pistols were inventoried and inspected prior to the demonstration.

    SOUTH KOREA Thousands of miles away from home, U.S. troops in South Korea marked the annual holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday. A traditional meal including turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing was served to soldiers at Camp Humphreys, which is just 60 miles from the border with North Korea. The U.S. soldiers said the Thanksgiving meal reminded them of home. This Thanksgiving meal today prepared for us is absolutely amazing. Theyve really outdone themselves. I do have family back out AT home. I have a wife and two beautiful daughters. I miss them very much but Im here now and...

    New Delhi -- The reach of a weapon possessed dictate the size of a nation's "area of influence". Every country also attempts to acquire technologies and weaponry to keep pace with its "area of interest" in pursuance of the larger national aim. And the effort of matching the "area of interest" with the "area of influence" is considered as balanced growth in military modernization. The great visionaries of Indian Defence Forces along with the scientific fraternity, fully supported by the Government, have constantly been making efforts to remain prepared to march ahead with the growing national ambitions.

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and 15 other Democratic senators signed a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) assailing a Trump Administration policy denying illegal unaccompanied minors access to abortion. "Long ago the Supreme Court decreed that it is every woman's constitutional right to abort her unwanted child," the letter said. "The Administration's attempt to get around the Court's decree by asserting it doesn't apply to females in the country illegally is reprehensible. Their argument that providing free abortions to illegal immigrants would only encourage more illegal immigration is irrelevant. Providing a refuge for those seeking abortions...

    Like many of her fellow citizens, the leader of South Koreas ruling party was unhappy with President Trumps threats to destroy nuclear-armed North Korea. But she now says Mr. Trumps visit this month appears to have made him appreciate more fully the need to peacefully resolve the crisis. In an interview, the leader, Choo Mi-ae, the chairwoman of the liberal Democratic Party of South Korea and the most prominent woman in the National Assembly, said Mr. Trumps visit had actually led to an improvement in our bilateral relations. Mr. Trump, she said, had now seen for himself that 25 million...

    Two Fort Hood soldiers who went for a hike Monday evening at Chalk Ridge Falls Park ended up staying the night after getting lost, according to the Bell County Sheriffs Department. The two soldiers, both women, were hiking at the park along Stillhouse Hollow Lake when it began to get dark and they lost their way, said Bell County Sheriffs Department spokesman T.J. Cruz. They called 911 when they got lost. Deputies searched with dogs for the soldiers. They were hiking along the fence line when they took a left instead of a right, Cruz said. They were never in...

    The U.S. Army has not and will not approve enlistment waivers for individuals with a history of self-mutilation or other documented serious mental health conditions, the Armys top general said Wednesday. Gen. Mark Milley, the Armys chief of staff, said recruitment standards have not been adjusted to meet hefty accession goals as the service looks to grow its force for the second consecutive year, calling a USA Today report that indicated the service would accept some individuals with past mental health issues mischaracterized. The report cited internal Army documents and listed conditions including self-mutilation, bipolar disorder, depression or drug or...
