    It’s difficult to describe anything as a “feel good story” on a day when we are commemorating the Honored Dead, but I suppose this story comes as close as any. CBS News is providing the details of a tale which took place long ago in a small village a bit to the north of where I live, in Gowanda, New York. They have a war memorial in their town just like so many other places around the country. But for the lifetime of most of the current residents, one name has been missing. Carroll Heath was a young boy born...

Remembering the brave men and women who gave their last full measure of devotion for our freedoms requires us to take a moment on this Memorial Day to focus on the individuals behind the numbers and remember they are not just names on a wall. One of those individuals who gave everything he had for us was Marine Captain John J. McKenna IV who was killed on August 16, 2006 during an operation in Fallujah, Iraq. The story of John McKennas life and death is the story of...

    "Hundreds of Polish residents took to the streets to give a hero's welcome to a convoy of U.S. troops who are driving through eastern Europe and deliver a damning message to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Children climbed on to Stryker armoured vehicles and even offered souvenirs to the troops, who stopped to pose for pictures in the main square of the eastern Polish town of Bialystok. Meanwhile other residents lined the roads and applauded as the troops from the 3rd Squadron of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment of the American Army passed by."

    A division of ISIS published a 'kill list' containing the names, photos and addresses of 100 US military members online and called upon its 'brothers residing in America' to kill them. The list was posted online by the 'Islamic State Hacking Division'. The group claimed it hacked several military servers, databases and emails to obtain the information. The ISHD said it wants 'lone wolf' attackers to go after the military members and 'kill them wherever you find them'. The list did appear to match up with information which was available online, TheBlaze reported. The posting read: 'With the huge amount...

    The Forty Martyrs were a group of soldiers from the Roman Twelfth Legion, who died for the Faith at Sebaste in Armenia in the year 320. This is seven years after the Edict of Milan and the Peace of the Church under Constantine, whose brother-in-law Licinius at that point ruled in the East, and after a period of tolerance, renewed the persecution of Christians. When the Forty had been called to renounce the Faith and refused, they were sentenced first to various tortures, and then condemned to die a particularly horrible death, stripped naked and left on the ice...

The operation came to be regarded as too dangerous for the soldiers who were regularly targets of attacks. Over time the men were worn out. The army has reported 371 incidents perpetrated against the soldiers standing guard in front of the protected sites. The Defense Ministry has announced that the men will become more mobile, rendering them less vulnerable. The army noted that "reconnoitering, the...

    PARIS -- An attacker with a knife hidden in his bag attacked three soldiers on an anti-terror patrol in front of a Jewish community center in southern France on Tuesday, two police officials said. Sarah Baron, a police union official in the city of Nice, said the attacker was detained after the attack near the Galeries Lafayette department store. Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said the attacker had an identity card with the name Moussa Coulibaly.

The assailant, named as Moussa, was arrested; but two people who may have been with him were believed to have fled, a police union official said. The attacker was carrying two knives.

    There has been renewed interest in combat and warfare in general lately, since we always seem to be forced into situations as a nation where we have to send more of our young people to nasty places to risk their lives and their bodies for our own needs. In the last couple of weeks, the movies American Sniper and Sole Survivor have generated interest and vigorous discussion among us.

Part of the time-honored tradition, which is the main reason the anti-Second Amendment rights leftists have banned the annual event, is because a 21-gun salute is conducted as part of the ceremony, and the controlist educators are worried that some people may feel an “uneasiness,” even though blanks, not real bullets are used in the rifles. “There are just some conditions that we have to adhere to and the shooting...

    When a man went to the side of his boat to empty a bucket at Australia's Kakadu National Park on Saturday, he was attacked by what police say was a 15.5-foot-long crocodile and vanished, his wife, son, and daughter-in-law unable to save him. Now, the 62-year-old's remains may have been found inside a crocodile. Two of the reptiles were shot yesterday about a mile from the site of the encounter, the AAP reports via the Sydney Morning Herald. "A quantity of human remains was recovered" from one, say police. They have yet to be IDed.

    As the news media cranked up the heat on the White Houses disastrous handling of the Veterans Affairs scandal, President Barack Obama decided it was time to change the subject and make the news about him again. So what does he do? Obama finalizes the release of five top Taliban commanders from Guantanamo in exchange for the Talibans release of one American soldier. Not just any soldier but a high value soldier Sargent Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted his duty in 2009 when he walked off his base in Afghanistan right into the enemy hands of the Taliban. And Bergdahl caused...

    The Washington Times reports that the Pentagon pretty much knew the whereabouts of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in recent years. So why didn't they rescue him? Quoting a former intelligence official, the Times said: "Military commanders were loath to risk their people to save this guy. They were loath to pick him up and, because of that hesitancy, we wind up trading five Taliban guys for him. The mentality was, 'We're not going to lose more of our own guys on this.'" The Times also quoted an anonymous "high-level congressional aide": "Joint Special Operations Command always had the rescue mission on...

    A former U.S. officer who served in Afghanistan with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl claims that soldiers were threatened by U.S. authorities if they questioned his story. After he was captured, Bergdahl said on a video from his captors that he lagged behind on patrol, although other sources in the military suggested anonymously that he walked away from his post. Not only has this nebulous non-story been put out for years but you know these soldiers of 4th Brigade 25th Infantry Division were threatened with legal repercussions if they spoke about Bergdahl. Everybody officially mandated silencing of what we saw has been...

    The State Departments Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday for promoting a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The apology came on the heels of a Friday Washington Free Beacon report detailing the CT Bureaus promotion of Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of a radical Muslim scholars group that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called for the death of Jews and Americans. Bin Bayyah himself is one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa, or religious...

Though the meaning of this custom has changed over time, its a tradition with a long history.The idea of leaving coins with the departed dates back as far as the Greeks and Romans. According to Greek mythology, the River Styx separates the living from the dead and Charon, the ferryman of Hades, will not carry your soul across without a payment. So unless you had a coin, your...
