Great job with this one Mitchell! This has been covered by some great writers here that have put out great pieces on this subject and I'll say this is one of the best articles of an outstanding batch!

I have not served, and am male, so I'm driving the wrong way in the opposite shoulder but;... I think nothing will ruin this opportunity for women that have the dream, drive and could qualify faster than a quota. It seems like cancer to a change that could allow a few Outstanding Warriors an opportunity that was not previously afforded to them.

Anyway, Great piece and sorry about inept lane usage!..;)

Great perspective Jack and I appreciate your intentional focus.


I also appreciate the efforts to out these self decorated football bats. To your point, I believe they should be handled efficiently to prevent wasted energy that could be directed at our real Heroes.

Hey... If all of our real Warriors cloak all evidence of their service... for say the next 6 months... The stolen valor idiots will be solo on the radar!!!... We could end the stupidity fairly quickly with minimal effort!!!.. Lemonade folks!

Moving Jack and great reporting! It's hard to wrap my head around this story while watching my 15 year old daughter doing her homework at the table.

Is there a way to get care packages to these Warriors?

@1tyme  Hey 1tyme...

I'd be shocked if anyone would conclude PN is "anti-troop" and what statistics could you present that demonstrate a "small percentage" of Law Enforcement or "cops" earn the label of "Hero" or "Role Model"? What exactly is "small"? 5%, 10%, 95%....This is troubling and surprising to me?!?...

Anyone else here ever notice that for the most part, people that really accomplish shit are usually quiet and reserved when it comes to talking about it? There are exceptions but for the most part they are exceptions...

You'd think that anyone half smart with acting talent that wanted to pose as an outstanding individual would:

Shut... The... Fuck... Up!!!....

It would save both them and us a lot of awkward aggravation.

@HonestBroker247 @engelbrad  Good thoughts HB. While I respect a jury as part of our great legal system, I also believe it can be wrong in findings. OJ stands out to me as a good example.

I can't wrap my head around why Chris Kyle would lie about an incident like that. What would he have to gain? His fame earned in other accomplishments far outweigh the issue being discussed. The JV incident, in my opinion, did not enhance the allure of his book.

I think a Warrior got his pride hit awhile ago and, true to his being, was vengeful and patient. The Warrior he was mounted by lands a book and the scorned moves tactfully in. Sad events occurred but the beaten is tone deaf and moves forward. Wins 1.8 and now has ass exposed in MM lime light. ... Hard to believe this is among brothers.

It's ironic. Terrorists had a bounty on Chris and they couldn't collect one penny. Then one of his brothers takes him for 1.8 million after he was slain while helping Vets who are in a serious crisis right now.

Jesse needs to immediately give that money back and disappear. He is worse than a terrorist. He is a home grown parasite.

Reply

From a civilian point of view I believe this crime needs to be punished in the following manner:

1) You get a first class ticket to "selection" where you will undergo the entire process. Because you have already "passed" this selection, through self indulging accolade and bullshit, you will not be allowed to fail. You will either die, or pass.

2) You will spend the next 90 days in the worst situation real Warriors find themselves Serving in. Real Warriors get to choose the venue and dates.

3) If somehow you survive steps 1 and 2, the specific branch of our great Military that you stole Valor from gets to chose 1 Warrior who will give you a honorary medal of bullshit. They will shit in your mouth so you can digest and appreciate a real accomplishment from a true American Warrior.

I'm thinking there would be less "volunteers" if this were law.

I guess the brains behind "quiet professionals" were a step ahead of this. I can't believe they lost footing.

That being said I love Catfish. My favorite is head gone, tail gone and guts gone... remove skin and season with sea salt, pepper and a little olive oil with lemon juice. Put it right side up on a medium charcoal grill and let cook for 10-12 minutes. check done by putting a fork about middle bones and the meat should fall off and be just about solid white. Delicious and can be caught with little effort. Great meal! Serve with grits and collard greens... garnish with a biscuit and a 6 pack of Blue Moon.... Enjoy!
