RESTORING AMERICA

FREEDOM RINGS 1776 is a conservative voice, defending the views of those who still believe in the constitution and opposing any and all who would lead us from our tried and true beliefs. We who still believe in the spirit of 1776 must oppose anyone who would set this nation on a course that will fundamentally transform America.

OUR MILITARY...A FADING MEMORY



Yesterday I wrote an essay entitled "This Is A Crock ... And It Makes Me Mad". Lately I have been encountering a tsunami of hoaxes and it appeared that I had found yet another, a very elaborate one. The reason for my anger was that it seemed to ridicule the military, the only branch of the federal government that I still respect. My essay was an answer to it. This morning I received an Email from the author assuring me that it was not a hoax but an effort at humor/sarcasm that I had not properly grasped and that there had been no harm meant. Consequently, I have deleted my essay from yesterday and this is the official retraction.

Although the author of the article that angered me at the time due to the fact that he and I see a different facet of the same issue, I must acknowledge an error that I made and also acknowledge the worth of what he found, and through an unusual misunderstanding passed on to me. He claimed that West Point is now training Environmental Officers, known as E2Os, and the insignia you see above is the chevron that environmental cadets wear on their uniforms.  After what I read in the "humorous" part of his article I rejected that as outright nonsense. 

I was mistaken and he was quite correct. The wavy pattern at the bottom of the insignia represents water and environmentalism. In my mind it also represents the end of the U.S. Military. After reading the explanatory Email I dug deeper and found this.

"The new cadet Energy and Environmental shoulder insignia was unveiled at the new Energy and Environmental Officer(E2O). The shoulder insignia is in subdued and dress versions, where the rockers represent the cadet rank and the three wavy lines beneath the rockers represent the common phenomenon found many places in the environment such as energy and water."

The above quote and the adjoining photo is from the West Point Association of Graduates.

Now this bothers me as I was in the old Army and I keep having this image in my mind of a young environmental officer telling George Patton that he cannot fire at the enemy that is entrenched on the hillside as the rain in the Spring runoff will become contaminated by the explosives and lead residue and kill the fish in the nearby stream. The mental image continues with Patton shooting a damn fool and getting on with the mission.

Needless to say this bothers me as there is something very sacrosanct about West Point. Robert E. Lee, U.S. Grant, Patton, Eisenhower, MacArthur. The list is long and distinguished and they all must be rolling in their graves seeing what is happening to us. How could such namby pamby nonsense occur at West Point, and presumably the same thing is taking place at Annapolis.

Actually we should have expected it. Look what Progressivism is doing to our children in their schools, and now they have upped the ante to take on our junior grade officers in training that will one day be Progressive Generals. We have seen many indicators of the ruin of America, but this casts a giant shadow. Four years in West Point, twenty four hours a day of hard core indoctrination. There will be no more MacArthurs or Pattons. Gone are the days when the mission came first. Now they will have to base their battle plans on whether a field mouse on the endangered species list is nearby, and if a platoon of men have to be sacrificed to save a spotted owl ... well that is just the cost of war and environmentalism.

When I was young I served in the military, and until recently I would have suggested that any young man with the right attitude do the same. I would no longer do that. I could not in good faith recommend a life in the military for anyone. Recent events have shown the willingness of the Commander in Chief and our Flag Officer Corps to sacrifice our young to appease the ideology of our enemies. Those high ranking officers unwilling to do so are being purged, and the environmental symbols on our officers to be indicates well what future military will be like.

Keep your sons and daughters at home. We'll be needing them here to help take our country back.

This is the original essay that I took for a hoax...

This was the original heading that I copied and used in my essay

Proposed "Green Annex" to the US Army Operations Order
Now that  West Point has created Energy and Environmental Officers (or "E2Os") it is time to introduce an Annex to the US Army Operations Order that addresses climate change, sustainable development, and other green issues during the conduct of military operations. Here is the proposal "Annex W. Sustainable Development" to be commented by the Green Officer of the unit's staff.


After my posting, the original was edited to read

And three lines were whited out.

The following is the funny part...

I'm sitting here with my mouth hanging open! So...the UN's Agenda 21 has now infiltrated West Point and Annapolis. Dangnabbit....the last vestiges of common sense have just been tossed out the window! Stupidity at it's finest hour.

I think I would like to have Gen. Pattons than woosified men and women! Field Mice be damned....
