Editor’s Log

Welcome to issue 414 of your Military. As in every issue, it is our privilege and honor to present YOUR stories of YOUR service.

This month we feature an interview with the late Medal of Honor recipient Col. Ola Mize (in addition to his Medal of Honor citation) and a story about interesting “pets” befriended by service personnel during war.

Do you have a story to tell? Send it in and we’ll make an attempt to publish it.

As we approach another Veterans Day it appears to me that our military veterans are becoming forgotten and slighted by the lack of recognition being given to them in the form of parades and festivities — at least that is how it is here in Sacramento, California.

It is shameful that our veterans — and the sacrifices they have made for our country — are being forgotten. I place the blame on the liberal indoctrination centers, aka public schools, which no longer teach American history. They teach students what to think rather than how to think. It is shameful for a nation to forget its veterans.

As of this writing, the mid-term elections haven’t yet taken place so I can’t comment on their outcome. I can only hope and pray that the lying dems don’t get the opportunity to further destroy our country any more than they have already. If the dems win, we the people, lose, it’s pretty simple.

Here, in the fool’s gold state of insanity, otherwise known as California, the situation grows worse day by day. If you want to see what the rest of the country will look like under dem control, look no further than Commifornia! Here, criminals and illegals have more rights than citizens, and we are at the mercy of the criminals, who it seems can do whatever they want without punishment. However, if a crime victim caused any bodily harm to the criminal during the commission of the act while they were trying to protect themselves or their property, the victim would end up being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The lawmakers in at our State Capitol treat the taxpayers like an unlimited ATM. Case in point — I recently went to a local hardware store for a couple of pieces of lumber and after I returned home, I looked over the receipt and saw what was listed “CA lumber fee” in the amount of 3¢! A lumber fee, really? This is just one example of the over-taxation without representation that exists here in the fool’s gold state.

So, before you cast that vote, think about what kind of country you want to live in. One with basic lawlessness and big government running every aspect of your life, or basic freedom to run your life in the fashion you wish within the guide-lines of the law? The choice is yours, so decide carefully!

The whole clown show put on by the democraps over Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing shows how low the dems will go, and they just keep digging. I believe the whole thing was instigated to stop the nomination before the mid-term elections and once those were over and the dems were in charge, they would have all the votes they needed to terminate that nomination. Well, fortunately, their little plan backfired and Kavanaugh was nominated anyway.

The instigators of this bogus “investigation” and the unsubstantiated accusations against Justice Kavanaugh should be brought up on legal charges to include Feinstein and Christine Ford. This whole thing reeked of democrap scum, but unfortunately these criminals will get by with it, only to turn around and do it again. In my opinion the dems have absolutely zero credibility and decency.

From all of us here at Military we salute all our veterans — past and present — not just on Veterans Day, but every day.
