Re: VA: Lee County first school in state to approve arming teachers

That's just about an hour from where I grew up.

Knowing the area well, I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of the teachers in that locale didn't volunteer for the option to be armed.

Re: USAF pilots' ejection seats to have M4 variant & 120 rounds.

Y’all flyboys had all the neat things: life rafts, parachutes, ejection seats, etc. The only survival kit we had on our M60A3 was an escape hatch, our .45s, and our M3 Grease Guns. I was glad when we got upgraded to the M1s. Less need for the escape hatch, so we had none. Thank God for the air suppo...

Mine used to say 'Veteran'. Now it says 'Instructor'. Was hoping for, 'Veteran Instructor!' :smilelol5:
That answers my question - I was going to ask if I could get 'Instructor' on mine, but I don't want 'Veteran' to come off of it. Looks like I'm sticking with what I have.

Re: Memorial Day

For my family, Memorial Day is a day to remember our fallen soldiers. Sure, we have the swimming, the BBQ, and the rest, but each Memorial Day starts at the Houston National Cemetery with a backpack full of American flags. We visit our four MoH recipients, visit a handful of family friends, and the ...

Re: Seattle WA: 9-0 vote to tax largest employers to help homeless

This is good for Texas,therefore I like it. Fools with exorbitant tax rates chasing companies here. Texas remains at the forefront of agriculture, energy, defense, and semiconductors. Getting more transplants from CA and WA can't hurt. Until they enter the ballot box, and vote for the same leftist ...

Best comment on the article:

Li'l Miss Vol Texan has known since about age five that there are five types of people in the military, "Jarheads, squids, flyboys, coasties...and soldiers like my daddy was." But she also learned very early on that such names were just a characteristic of inter-service rivalries, and every one of t...
