Thanksgiving Wish for our Men and Women in Harms Way

  I know many of you guys and gals who are in harm's way right now trying to carry on in a growing hostile and unthankful environment, are losing your faith in what we stand for. Many have written and said you don't know why you wasted the last 8 or 10 or 14 years of your life for trying to be loyal to a disloyal people. When the air is filled with lead projectiles and the smell of blood its especially hard to believe you are fighting for a noble cause, freedom. Maybe the words of Col. Dave Grossman can help and I offer them to help you hang on until the smoke clears. May you have a safe Thanksgiving.

I am proud to have been and still be a Sheepdog. Liberals put wolves and herd dogs into the same category. They have no discernment between the two. Lets make that distinction. There are still, I would say over fifty percent of current police and military, who pride themselves on being Sheepdogs. I would encourage you  to read the classic essay titled; On Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs by Col Dave Grossman which you can find here……..
“Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself.
The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?”
