Home of the Brave

The San Diego Union-Tribune is running a series of articles on various members of the military in honor of Veterans Day. I encourage you to check out this article, with video, of Marine Gunnery Sgt. Nick Popaditch (retired). Popaditch achieved a measure of fame when he was photographed smoking a cigar as a statue of Saddam Hussein was toppled.

Today, Popaditch, who was later awarded the Silver Star for valor and lost most of his sight when an rocket-propelled grenade exploded next to his head, is a student at San Diego State University where he's working to become a teacher.

Semper Fi, gunny.

  1. We should be observing this holiday now more than ever. This weekend is the time to be thinking about issues confronting our troops and their families. A good way to get involved is to check out the the Wounded Warrior Project. It's a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness for U.S. troops severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. It really puts a face on the cost of this conflict. Here's a link:

I continue to be annoyed by online media companies skimping on the copy editors.

If you disagree, we may feud over the issue.

Is it true that Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist?

Sounds dangerous, right @Acosta? https://twitter.com/MarshaBlackburn/status/1618576092159410178

Sen. Marsha Blackburn @MarshaBlackburn

Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist and the top Republican on his committee.

Then he released the records to intimidate his opponents.
