This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson.
And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.
Only thing I disagree with is that these are no gentlemen
Lt Colonel Fighting Jack Churchill, aka Mad Jack
- fought throughout WW2 with a longbow and a broadsword
- was also known to bring bagpipes
- he volunteered for the Commandos, not because he knew what they did but “because it sounds dangerous”
- he crawled out of a concentration camp
- about the end of WW2, he commented “If it wasn’t for those damn Yanks, we could have kept the war going another 10 years.”
- atta boy
How to be batshit with a load of epic.
this is probably the fifth time i’ve reblogged this but it’s just too awesome not to.
Everytime I see this I reblog it. Jack Churchill is my hero.
I need a sword for my bug out bag
Wear red on fridays to support our troops! Until everyone comes home!
OK wearing red and all is nice, but do something meaningful, like a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project or the USO:
I do agree with your comment. I myself send carepacs to Our Troops in harm’s way; I get my names from AnySoldier.com, they cater to ALL branches. The CCW at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church sends carepacs twice a year for Our Troops, we do Easter and Thanksgiving since chances are that some other churches will send them stuff for Christmas.
My purpose with asking my followers to make me RED Friday’s memes is to bring awareness to the millions that don’t even give it a thought that Our Troops are still in harm’s way, and by thinking of them they may pray for them and send them care packages like I do. BTW, the awesome guy in this pic is a MARINE deserving of respect weather he wears RED or not. It was so sweet of him to answer my call <3
The point of wearing red is to remind the gen pop that we still have brothers and sisters dying overseas. We still have veterans dying in our own backyard because they’re physically home, but their minds are still deployed. Too many are forgotten, too often.
As this retired army vet has suggested, I highly encourage my followers to donate to wounded warriors project or the USO! I enjoy the abundant amenities they provide myself and others that are stationed here in Okinawa. They even made me a surprise birthday cake with a message from my family!
While I donate to the USO every time I visit and make donations to WWP, I think wearing red on Fridays is the least I could do to raise awareness.
If you’re doubting yourself, don’t, you were born for the past, present, and future you have, so go and live the best life that you can, while you can.
I love this.
Q:Tell me a secret 🌸
I save those for the people that earn them.
