Vet Robs Bank to Receive Healthcare

7005834f-db44-44cf-a8b8-bdc008aa30ae

Some people who cannot afford healthcare just go to the emergency room. Joseph Cyrus, a 77 year old US Army veteran at the time, was turned down by a VA hospital, so he used a toy gun to rob a bank in order to go to jail and get the care he needed.  “I wanted to be caught,” Cyrus said from his wheelchair in court.  “I wanted to get help from the United States Government.”   InfoWars/Sputnik

“Excluding the Christian Science Monitor and USA Today, there has been a virtual mainstream media blackout regarding the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) recent investigation of the VA–an investigation which shows that wait time manipulation continues to be a problem for those serving veterans.”  Roger Arnoff/Canada Free Press

 

Glamour Magazine, Marines Conduct Experiment in NYC

Curious about whether different amounts of recognition for their service are given to male verses female Marines, Glamour Magazine conducted a social experiment on the busy streets of Manhattan. Captains Verdia and Quinones, dressed in full uniform, stood for two hours in New York City.  Watch the video to see the results.  The Veterans Site Blog

Pearl Harbor Remains Identified After 75 Years

Previously buried as “unknowns,” the bodies of five men who perished when the USS Oklahoma was sunk at Pearl Harbor, have been identified.  The battleship’s loss of life was second only to the 1100 souls who perished aboard the USS Arizona, which remains a historic site at Pearl Harbor.  The men identified are Chief Petty Officer Albert E. Hayden, 44 of Mechanicsville, MD; Ensign Lewis S. Stockade 27, of Anaconda, MT; Seaman 2nd Class Dale F. Pearce, 21, of KS; Petty Officer 1st Class Vernon T. Luke, 43 of Green Bay, WI; and Chief Petty Officer Duff Gordon, 52, of Hudson, WI. The Pentagon said that it wants to return as many remains as it can to the families.  The Washington Post

House Measure Requires Women Register for Draft

The House Armed Services Committee approved, by a narrow margin, an amendment to a defense bill to require that women register for the draft.  Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), a former Marine, proposed the amendment, but now says that he disagrees.  He said that his generation has not seen the kind of warfare where bodies need to be replaced, which in his opinion, is the reason for a draft.  Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) a retired USAF fighter pilot, approves of the amendment. She pointed out that there are plenty of useful non-combat missions to be filled.  NBC News/Associated Press

Political Correctness and the Wussification of the Military

A Heritage Foundation’s 2016 index of US military strength report scored our military “only marginally able” and trending toward “weak” to defend the United States.  This extremely poor score couldn’t come at a more dangerous time, considering the same analysis also reports a rise in threats to US vital interests.  Brown accuses the military’s social experimentation for a “squishy” military.

Green Beret Will Stay

In a stunning reversal, the US Army decided to retain Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martlan a decorated Green Beret. The Army had planned to kick out Martian after he physically confronted a local Afghan commander who was accused of raping a boy over the course of many days.  Fox News

Angry Atheists

Angry atheists are now trying to ban the Bible from displays honoring veterans.  Mikey Weinstein and his vitriolic Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF)–which view the Bible as a symbol of “religious oppression”–have forced three VA hospitals and a military base to ban the Bible from “Missing Man” displays.  MRFF extremists call Christians “monsters who terrorize” and constantly attack the religious liberty of the brave men and women in our armed forces.  Jay Sekulow/ACLJ Chief Counsel
