A video I’m sure Obama and Hagel will not watch

Earlier this week, President Obama and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel made the ill-advised decision to decimate the military strength of the United States. I suppose it was appropriate that I was sent this simple 8-minute video reminding me of the face of sacrifice and that freedom certainly is not free.

It comes at a very high cost paid by those who go on to the mansions of the Lord. And those of us who remain must tell the stories of our fallen brothers and sisters. So I share this video to remind you of the legacy of the American Warrior.

If you are not moved to tears, then you’re no different than the cold, heartless individuals who degrade our national security, and disrespect and dishonor the greatest men and women the world has ever known — the American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman. Steadfast and Loyal.

I cry every time I see this video. I cry every time I hear or read about another lost. “God Bless Each and Everyone”.

Interesting , I vaguely remember Bush 1 ban of showing images of the caskits of the dead Americab soldiers coming home. 1989 it started and lasting until 05, when it was overturned when the gov was sued under the Freedom of Info Act.

Reba

They should still show every Military man and women that is brought home in a casket. Maybe then, “Our Country” would remember to take care of “Our Military”. “God Bless Them All”.

You are correct madam

Eileen Davis

That is not the point.

Philanthropussy

Yes it is. Bush 1 and 2 did everything thru could to keep the lie about how great the wars was going. I wonder what West thought about that?

The foia lawsuit was used to push the msm progressive agenda. The daily death count the illegal war cries. Now that Obama is responsible for 3/4 of the deaths in afgan in half the time where are the cries and the death count. 16 year master sergeant.

That master seg was forced to retire for the army and got his honorable discharge out of petty. And you have to get my credible evidence about this Obama death toll charge.

You can find the proof anywhere online. Just type in something like “military deaths by president”. There’s government web sites, news sites. Try looking for facts instead of just parroting false info.

No Liberal wants to think about or mention the truth. They are only interested in painting Obama as the savior.

Disgusting.

What in the world does that have to do with anything that this video and post is about? And who brought up Bush? And why are you trolling around on Lt. Col. Wests forum spewing your hate? We are just requesting that Obama and Hagel honor the country and those brave men and women that are fighting for her and honor those who died doing so instead of weakening her. And why do you hate America so much? And why am I wasting my time with someone who’s name is from a dead comedian who was a loudmouth, America hating… Read more »

And Bush 1 and 2 didn’t want to see the bodies coming home. It wasn’t until the liberal media sued the gov for access.
Wasn’t West in the military back them? I wonder what he thought about that?

Phila,If Bush would have his way,your country would have been flatten without warning,but the dems had to warn ya 6 months in advance.you speak of our President with those words and you have a picture like that.that alone speaks a thousand words

Mike

You are nuts. Bush didn’t want to FLATTEN Countries.

And Obama currently is just trying to give Muslims power in the world and is a threat to National Security to do it!!

You want me to leave? Interesting . Do you know who can to this country? Please who were told, you don’t like it then leave . Why did they come to this particular country? Bec they were told all are welcome here. You are no better than a tyrant. You leave

As a wife and mother I see no need for war. Then I read where children in school are shot to death. In a place where they should be safe and I want to go fight. Only a coward would target a child that can’t defend themselves. I’m so afraid something bad is going to happen here where we will know fear. that we have never known.

Susan Mireles
Guest

Nothing bad is going to happen here, as long as we have our guns and stick together. They are cowards and would never face someone who is armed.

susan don’t count on that obamas private army have spent billions of dollars on ammo just to kill us yes we will take the fight to them and we will kick ass but in the end we can not stand up to the weapons they have but rest assured we will not go down with out a dam good fight.i was in nam for 3 years and we all once were solders their is more vets than them.god bless us all.

The problem is THEY ARE TAKING GUNS!!! We do nothing about it but pretend we will do something when it happens in OUR State. Well, The States have NO RIGHT to violate our Constitution!! NOR does the Federal Government! Remember, The Constitution is ABOVE Majority rule yet the Liberals keep on putting Unconstitutional laws on ballots and trying to get a mandate Unconstitutionally! If they want to change the Constitution there is a way to do that!! And it is NOT Majority Rule! It is States Convention ONLY!!!!! Liberals don’t care and quite frankly neither do we because we let… Read more »

Wonderful video. I am a 75 year old Vietnam veteran. I promise to stand my ground and fight to the end if this bunch of white house idiots try to take my freedom. All of my fellow veteran and active duty brethren – we must keep our powder dry and not be afraid to use it. God Bless You All.

This film should be made into a documentary and presented in Schools to children of the Appropriate Age to teach them about American History. These pictures say more than any textbook .Amazing Sad!! .Tears are flowing from my Heart,Thank you for this.

I would invite any of those who disrespect our soldiers to come stand a flag line with me as one of our own is honored with the due respect that should be given maybe then they would understand DUTY,HONOR,INTEGRITY,AND RESPECT. I have shed tears for each and every one that I have had the honor to stand for. Oh and I almost forgot FOR THE LOVE OF COUNTRY. This was a very touching and heart wrenching video for those of us that understand the aforementioned qualitys. Those who dont understand them or dont care about them will not be touched.

For those of us who served and the families that have given their loved ones, I salute you Sir for keeping their memories alive. Col West I would stand bye you and server with you any day.

hosquatch

God bless the brave men and women who have given their full measure of devotion for their country. However, do not deceive yourself into believing that the creature that calls itself “Obama” will ever be haunted. Sociopaths do not have normal human emotions and subhuman creatures like aka Obama see other humans only as tools to be used and discarded…

If not for those who love this country enough to fight with the full knowledge that they could die there is not enough thank you’s said. Look at the 10s if thousands buried around the world to protect free people. We will never give that up.

Very moving video.. They will not have fought in vein. We as a country will rise up. it is only a question of when. May 16th will be a day of reckoning. We will show up peacefully. It is up to barry to either resign or fight I am ready for both.

God bless all the Armed forces who perished to save this country for our children.

Col. West you understand the pulse and heart of “We the People”. I salute you and would be honored to serve in your fight, to free America and support The Constitution.

How disgraceful to have a president who isn’t even man enough to polish the boots of one of our country’s heroes, much less to make decisions that concern the security of our nation.

Patti

Through the hand of God and by the prayers of our forefathers this nation came into being. We don’t need a revolution. This nation instead needs to turn off the smartphones and computers, to get on her knees, and ask the Creator of heaven and earth to pour out His Spirit and bring divine intervention. Only He can heal our country.

I wish that the discovery channel or history channel would do a documentary on the OLD GUARD, so people could see just how much they do for the soldiers of this country, not only the tomb of the unknown soldier but everything.

And I would add through all the world’s soldiers, Not only in the United States! Bless them and their family for such a sacrifice!! I though President Obama, said he would end war in many places where the Americans are! How sad!
