'Two Corinthians' is "corpseman syndrome". When you are not familiar with a word or phrase because you're not familiar with the culture or context that produced it. Obama was clueless about military culture & terminology. Trump has spent more time in casinos than churches.

Medal of Honor

Captain Florent A. Groberg


Captain Florent A. Groberg distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a Personal Security Detachment Commander for Task Force Mountain Warrior, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, during combat operations against an armed enemy in Asadbad, Kunar Province, Afghanistan on August 8, 2012.

On that day, Captain Groberg was leading a dismounted movement consisting of several senior leaders to include two brigade commanders, two battalion commanders, two command sergeants major, and an Afghanistan National Army brigade commander. As they approached the Provincial Governor’s compound, Captain Groberg observed an individual walking close to the formation. When the individual made an abrupt turn towards the formation, he noticed an abnormal bulge underneath the individual’s clothing.
Selflessly placing himself in front of one of the brigade commanders, Captain Groberg rushed forward, using his body to push the suspect away from the formation. Simultaneously, he ordered another member of the security detail to assist with removing the suspect. At this time, Captain Groberg confirmed the bulge was a suicide vest and with complete disregard for his life, Captain Groberg again with the assistance of the other member of the security detail, physically pushed the suicide bomber away from the formation.

Upon falling, the suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest outside the perimeter of the formation, killing four members of the formation and wounding numerous others. The blast from the first suicide bomber caused the suicide vest of a previously unnoticed second suicide bomber to detonate prematurely with minimal impact on the formation. Captain Groberg’s immediate actions to push the first suicide bomber away from the formation significantly minimized the impact of the coordinated suicide bombers’ attack on the formation, saving the lives of his comrades and several senior leaders.

Captain Groberg’s extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty at the risk of life are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect credit upon himself, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division and the United States Army.

Captain Groberg: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy nine living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

The Homefront Went to War

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sometime when I was in my late teens or early twenties, I visited a stationery store in downtown Stockton. Back in the day when big box office supply stores had not yet been invented and people quaintly still wrote letters. This one was having a clearance sale of some sort, presaging the going out of business sale that was destined to come. The store closed its doors years ago.

I came across several boxes of Bibles...New Testaments, actually. Pocket sized and...armored! What the well dressed G.I. should be carrying! There have been anecdotes about people carrying a Bible or something in their left breast pocket stopping a bullet. James Doohan, "Scottie" from the USS Enterprise:
Doohan was hit by six rounds fired from a Bren gun by a nervous Canadian sentry: four in his leg, one in the chest, and one through his right middle finger. The bullet to his chest was stopped by a silver cigarette case given to him by his brother.

And they say smoking will kill you!

The primary market for this product, I suspect, was people on the homefront. Anxious mothers, girl friends, relatives seeking to provide some added measure of protection, both physical and perhaps spiritual, to those they loved, would buy these and give them or send them to those within the sound of shots fired in anger. I doubt that many G.I.s bought them for themselves, since at that age, most of them, like myself, believed themselves to be at least vaguely bulletproof.

Some were called “The Heart-Shield Bible". They came with different sayings engraved on them. The ones I saw weren't gold plated or coated. Some had a message from FDR in them*. All of them had a message from Jesus Christ. Hard to say how many of them were actually read and how many of them were simply tokens or talismans, carried to ease their loved ones' minds.

But I'm sure they carried a little bit of home in their left breast pocket. A token of the love felt for them by those back on the home front. Those who wanted them to return to them when the war was finally over. And did the only thing, other than praying, that they knew that they could do.

*Could you possibly imagine a message from our current Commander-in-Chief, printed in a Bible, Koran or Torah, encouraging our troops, "commending the reading... to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States"? Me neither.

For all you connoisseurs of advertising...

I may not be exactly sure what they're selling, but, I'm pretty sure I'm in the market!

Quote du jour

This year's primary campaigns were the semi-finals: On the Democrat side, socialism lost to cronyism. On the Republican side, constitutional conservatism lost to populist nationalism. Cronyism and populism advance to the Super Bowl. Deal with it. They're the only two teams left. Pick yours.

Hollywood Went to War

Fifty-fourth in our series Hollywood Went to War, is an actress whose notable career was put on hold to answer the call to service to our country: Ida Lupino.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

According to her obit in the NYT, "Ida Lupino was born in London on Feb. 4, 1918, during a German zeppelin bombing."

Movie actress Ida Lupino, is a lieutenant in the Women's Ambulance and Defense Corps and is shown at a telephone switch board in Brentwood, California, on January 3, 1942. In an emergency she can reach every ambulance post in the city. It is in her house and from here she can see the whole Los Angeles area.

Lt. Lupino, we thank you for your service to our country. Rest in peace.
