This Blog Site is dedicated to those that have served our great country and to my fallen comrades in the Marine Corps: Cpl. John Alfonzo, LCpl. Johnson, Sgt. Zinser and others who tragically perished along with 16 other Marines on March, 22nd 1989 when their Sea Stallion CH-53D helicopter crashed near P’ohang, South Korea. And to Earl Andersen, call sign: “EDGE” a fellow 1986 Citadel graduate who was killed while piloting his Harrier AV-8B over the South China Sea on January 26th, 1990. He died while on a training flight from Kadena Air Base on Okinawa to Osan Air Base in South Korea. His AV-8B Harrier fell from 35,800 feet, sliced through a cloud bank and disappeared into the water. Neither the aircraft nor his body was ever found.
In addition to those above, tragically on April 23, 2012 my son “Dub” as we affectionately called him went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So now along with those who I knew and served with in the Marine Corps my son’s name is added to the honor roll of those who have inspired me to fight on for our 2nd Amendment Rights. God Bless America! God Bless the United States Marine Corps! God Bless “Dub”! and God Bless the 2nd Amendment!
I love you son, I miss you and I will see you again!

The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent. The Eagle became the National emblem in 1782 when the great seal of the United States was adopted. The Great Seal shows a wide-spread eagle, faced front, having on his breast a shield with thirteen perpendicular red and white stripes, surmounted by a blue field with the same number of stars. In his right talon the eagle holds an olive branch, in his left a bundle of thirteen arrows, and in his beak he carries a scroll inscribed with the motto: “E Pluribus Unum”…which is Latin for “Out of Many, One” attributed to Thomas Jefferson.
By now you know I am a HUGE advocate, proponent and supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the right that it affords each and every American Citizen. I will do everything in my power and sphere of influence to educate, encourage and empower any and all gun owners to join the National Rifle Association and similar organizations and support our 2nd Amendment right.
What part of “Shall NOT be Infringed” do so many people, state and local governments NOT understand?
27 words….THAT’s IT! So brilliant in it’s SIMPLICITY, so POWERFUL that it says so much with so little.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
