Hey guys, The first installment of my Iraq war crime series went up on Breach Bang Clear yesterday. As I said before, this is probably the most important thing I’ve ever written. I hope I do the story justice. ——————————————————- Today Breach-Bang-Clear begins a series of articles that every military man and woman should read. […]


I must apologize to my legions of fans (all twelve or so). I’ve been extremely busy lately, and haven’t been posting as often as I should be. There’s no excuse, but there are reasons for this. One, my daughter just had another baby. She’s currently with us while her husband is out doing Marine Corps […]


I was just sent this Memorial Day tribute video, made by the makers of The Hornet’s Nest. It is very well done, please take a look. Happy Memorial Day, guys.


No joke, there he was, on a boring nighttime convoy outside Diwaniyah, Iraq…then the crap hit the fan! “He” is one of my buddies, a fellow soldier who led of one of our convoy escort teams in Iraq in 2005. His name is Larry Russell (and yes, I have his permission to write this). When […]


I just wanted to drop a quick note and share this. A couple of weeks ago a soldier friend of mine went to a club and saw this guy. If you’re thinking, “That’s one badass Major Sergeant Major Special Forces Desert Storm veteran Physical Training Master,” you’re right! My friend, at right, asked the man […]


I wish people would stop assuming combat-related PTSD every time some veteran commits a violent crime. Veterans are representative of the country they serve; some are sterling citizens, some are rotten bags of snail crap. I personally am not aware of a single active shooter who had combat-related PTSD. Cho, the Virginia Tech murderer, never […]


This was published yesterday on BreachBangClear.com. ————————————– Folks, our nation is in the grip of a serious crisis. We’ve seen evidence of this crisis many times in the last few months. This isn’t something we can ignore. People are hurting, and we have to do something about it. The crisis? Military posers keep screwing up […]


This was published today on BreachBangClear. ————————————————– “When I came home from Iraq, my father asked me if I had been in combat. I answered, ‘Yeah, I was.’ But inside, I wasn’t really sure. Yes, I had been shot at. Sort of. My convoy escort team took sporadic small arms fire which never hit anything, […]


A few weeks back I wrote this essay for BreachBangClear. http://www.breachbangclear.com/site/10-blog/632-ptsd-fakers-and-frauds-and-wtaf.html In the essay, I discussed something that seems pretty obvious to me and a lot of other vets: many veterans are using fake PTSD claims to milk the system for a free monthly handout. That makes it harder for veterans with legitimate problems to […]


This is kinda cool. Brian P from TheNewRifleman.com, a blog for civilians interested in tactical shooting, asked me to write a post on the basics of tactical optics. So I wrote one, and he posted it today. If you’re at ground zero optics-wise and need a low-level overview, this post might be very helpful. Please […]
