Chivalry Isn't Dead

I'm a former Army Ranger, out for a few months now. The thing I miss the most about the military, is feeling like I'm making a difference. This desire to keep the fight going is what led me to start a business with my brother. Our company is an athletic/leisure apparel company called Chivalry Contego LLC. Contego is Latin for "to clothe" and "to protect". We aim to do this with not only our products, but with donations we will make to various charities on every sale as well.

Helping disabled vets get outdoors

I'm a disabled vet living in Alaska. I'm fortunate enough to be able to get around most of the time. I guide in Alaska and want to help those vets not as lucky as me. I want to provide free fishing outings for them. If I can get up and running I can keep this going for as long as I guide. I need some assistance getting started. Please check out this link and share with everyone you know. I have posted adsvon Craigs List and already have over 40 disabled vets wanting to participate. Hope you will help make this a reality for these vets and me. Thank You!

Korat RTAFB Thailand 1964-1965

I was at Korat during early years of Vietnam war with a F105 unit TDY from Kadena AFB Okinawa. There was no plant growth any where on base. We lived in open huts very close to perimeter fence. I am looking for a "buddy" (any body) that could help to confirm the conditions. I am diagnosed with prostrate cancer, diabetes II, and various heart diseases. Don't know if they used agent orange or not for sure but the airbase was BALD enough to convince me that somethine very strong was used.

Nation's Oldest Medal Of Honor Hero Dies In Hospital With Dozens Of Veterans At His Side

Nicholas Oresko of Cresskill, the nation’s oldest Medal of Honor recipient, died Friday evening, surrounded by veterans and military personnel who had gathered there all week after hearing on social media that he was in the hospital with a broken leg.

Oresko, 96, was a U.S. Army master sergeant during World War II when, although badly wounded, he wiped out two enemy bunkers near Tettingen, Germany, during the Battle of the Bulge.

Black Hawk Down

October, 3, 2013 is the sad 20th anniversary of the deaths of Master Sergeant Gary Ivan Gordon (August 30, 1960 – October 3, 1993) and Sergeant First Class Randall David Shughart (August 13, 1958–October 3, 1993) in Mogadishu, Somalia. This pair of Delta Force snipers were both posthumous recipients of the Medal of Honor. They heroically asked to be inserted to rescue Warrant Officer Michael Durant, knowing well that their chances of survival were incredibly slim. Together, they accounted for at least 25 Somali KIAs before they died.
