Front Line

Flag4Post 22


This blog is dedicated to the men and women–past and present–that defend our freedom and keep our shores safe. Thank you for your brave service, sacrifice and love for our country.

I have no political affiliation, no ulterior agenda other than to ensure our brothers and sisters-in-arms receive the help and support they deserve because of their selfless service to answer the call to arms. They are that 1% and it is our duty as Americans to ensure their health and posterity.

Through understanding their service and the horrors of war they committed themselves to on our behalf, we can bridge this cultural gap and truly ensure we leave no war fighter behind on the battlefield in the mind.


The weight they carry
The weight they carry

Never forget: we walk on hell,
gazing at flowers.

Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt. ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War


From the windows, walking by
Cities fall, and children die.
Through the windows, through the eyes
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.
Past the broken welcome sign
Soldiers march the streets to die.
Locked inside a final fight
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.
Broken hope, believing lies
In the land where senses die.
Praying, walking through the night
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.
Raining fire from the sky
Time is marching, passing by.
The empty, soulless children’s eyes
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.
Hope rises, hope declines
None the power of divine.
Beneath the empty, blackened sky
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.
In my heart, they will be mine
Soldiers marching, line by line.
As cities fall and children die
Soldiers march, and soldiers cry.

Because of you

Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees. ~General Stonewall Jackson’s last words


America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

A Soldier’s Cry

Jagged heart
Souls plead
Voices cry
No time to bleed

Whispers linger
In the night
Death all around
Horrible sight

Face to face
You’re just like me
Sad to think
War has to be

Killing fields
Battle sweeps
End is near
Soldier’s weep ~K. Fitzgerald

Improvise, Adapt, Overcome

  1. There isn’t any justification in my eyes. I don’t know how they sleep at night to be honest.
    Ted Cruz is from Texas which is a surprise to me. Yes, he’s putting his name on the ballot for 2016; good luck with that one!


  2. It is upsetting that someone can block benefits to vets. We spend billions on dumb stuff and cut back on the men and women who give it their all. It is a thing to make us ashamed. Ted Cruz is on your list. Is this the one from Florida? And is he the one going for president. Shame on these men. What are there justifications?
