Juliano Mer-Khamis, established the Freedom Theater in 2006 and was murdered outside of it on 4 April 2011. I never made it to the Freedom Theatre, but I did spend a day in Jenin Camp on 23 July 2007.

Confederate Soldiers are American Veterans by Act of Congress

Sons of Confederate Veterans

April is Confederate Memorial Month where various commemorations held throughout the month, primarily in the South. In the other states I would venture to say that most have never even heard of it, a combination performance of historical revisionism, political correctness, and amnesia. But I am happy to report that we are seeing more events being held each year,and better attended.

Duty – Honor – Country

Many contributors to Veterans Today may not have an understanding of members of the Armed Forces – particularly career Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and CoastGuardsmen. (Also derisively referred to as Lifers!) I have a blue retiree I.D. card. Guess I qualify as a Lifer.

Proportionality and Restraint

Controversy over American military efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan is common. America has been at war for over ten years. Children of troops that fought America’s enemies in the first days of the war on terror are now fighting too. There is no end in sight. Very well intended people like to point out that The United States failed to comply with what has become to be called the “Powell Doctrine” after General Colin Powell.

Women’s Work

Meanwhile, back here in the United States, women in the military are still seen as less capable and something of a curiosity. The fact that we are so grossly outnumbered — only 14 percent of soldiers in the Army are women — automatically makes us a curiosity. Until I saw that video about the I.D.F., I thought that women were pretty well integrated in our Army.

Veterans: Banished and Betrayed

by Barton Kunstler, Ph.D., Author, “The Hothouse Effect” “Banished veterans.” The phrase shouldn’t make sense. Someone joins the military, fights in a war, returns home, and then is banished? Thankfully, this can’t happen here… But it is happening here. Thousands of men and women who have risked their lives in the country’s wars have been […]
