    An actual world exclusive. Turns out the man's daughter is a fan and #MugClub members. This is an amazing story. It's no wonder the MSM doesn't want you to know about him. He's everything they try to claim gun owners are NOT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4HEchh0XD8

    Ready for some stunning hypocrisy? Democrat Frederica Wilson accused Trump of being heartless and telling an army widow her husband “knew what she signed up for” However, how ironic that she said essentially the EXACT SAME THING when discussing slain FBI agents in 2015. Is she equally outraged at her OWN comments?

    Hundreds of people in Michigan came together to say a tear-filled final goodbye to a cancer-stricken dog who served three tours in Afghanistan with the U.S. Marines. Cena the 10-year-old black lab received a hero's farewell Wednesday before being euthanized at the USS LST 393, a museum ship in Muskegon, and carried off in a flag-draped coffin. Cena, who was recently diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, was a bomb-sniffer for the Marines until his retirement in 2014. The celebration for Cena was organized by his owner, Lance Cpl. Jeff Young, who was paired with the dog in 2009 and...

    H David Eubank is a former Special Forces Operative turned aid worker. The 56 year old veteran’s Free Burma Rangers aid organization has been in Mosul, Iraq fighting ISIS. He previously was in the military free fall team with the First Special Forces Group, so he is skilled in combat unlike most aid workers. So, when ISIS was firing upon civilians and he saw a little girl about 150 feet away from him, he sprang into action to rescue her. As you can see in the tweeted video below, Eubank is donning only a helmet and a bulletproof vest. He...

    MISSOULA - Captain (Chaplain) Matthew Christensen, a 1992 graduate of Flathead High School, was awarded the Soldier's Medal last week for his actions that resulted in saving the lives of two soldiers. When Christensen went to counsel a soldier who was having a hard time, he didn’t realize it would escalate into a dangerous hostage situation. Christensen spent much of the night counseling the soldier. Later, the soldier's roommate and another chaplain showed up at the barracks. Things got worse. The soldier called some family members, cursing them for abusive situations in the past. Christensen said, "And then he just...

    A 4 year old boy, Roman, in Croydon, south London used his mom's thumb to call for help. He can be heard saying: 'Hello I'm Roman.'

    War History on line ^ | October 22, 2015 | Jeff Edwards
    The first couple of years of the Korean War can easily be described as a seesaw strategic battle for control of the peninsula. However, the same was very much true at the tactical level where control for every field, hill, and ridge would often see a back and forth game of attack and counter-attack. Often changing hands multiple times in one evening, these strategic points became the center of intense fighting. For Herbert K. Pililaau, this would result in him being the last man standing on hill 931 of Heartbreak Ridge as he covered the retreat for the rest of...

    I am greatly saddened today at the passing of Lt General Hal Moore. I would never have thought that in my Air Force career that it would be an Army General who would leave the greatest impression on me. This post is to reflect on that impact. In 2006 I attended Air Command and Staff College. After interviewing with 75+ others for 17 coveted slots on the Gathering of Eagles team I was selected to be one and could not believe my fortune. Through several weeks of work as a team we had selected our “Eagles” to come to the...

    Matthew Stafford and his wife, Kelly, brought some Christmas cheer to two grieving families Wednesday. The Staffords brought Christmas gifts to the families of two slain Detroit police officers. It is the couple’s Christmas tradition to bring gifts to a couple of families in need every year. “And this year it was a great opportunity considering we did two families of fallen police officers, people that protect us and lost their lives in the line of duty,” the former Georgia quarterback told ESPN’s Michael Rothstein. “Something we felt was important and just happy to do it.”

    Pinehurst, N.C. — A local survivor of Pearl Harbor has spent a lifetime making sure people don't forget the terror that killed so many of his comrades. Roy "Swede" Boreen, 96, escaped a ship where more than 440 sailors were killed. He has lived in Pinehurst for more than 30 years, and Wednesday the community rallied around him in tribute. At age 21, Boreen prepared to die a terrible death, coated in oil, bobbing in sea water. Minutes earlier, he'd looked out a porthole aboard the U.S.S. Oklahoma.

When he reported a huge sighting on his radar screen, he was ignored.At 2 a.m. on April 1, 2001, I was sitting at my computer in my Laguna Beach condo working on a website I’ve long since forgotten when an email popped up with nothing in the subject line. “Do you know who I am?” “Another April Fool’s joke,” I thought to myself as I moved my cursor up to click the Delete button.
