The Path Of The Warrior
I personaly salute all past and present men and women of our armed forces!

….I find it ironic that British papers criticize the USA for maintaining a death penalty. The cold blooded murder of a British soldier on the streets of London deserves the
death penalty. Oh … pardon me. Britain doesn’t have a death penalty. Too bad !
The British people can pay more taxes to imprison the killers. Rope is cheap.
Then again, Obama is running interference for Islam. Why is anyone surprised?
The American President was born into a Muslim family, raised by a Muslim father
and stepfather, and educated in Muslim schools. Its no wonder that he is bending over to kiss their A**es. Once he is out of office it will be Katy bar the door. Paybacks are a bitch.

I was in the United States Navy in the 80’s on USS Carl Vinson CVN 70. I Love America with All My Heart and I would die defending My Beautiful AMERICA.

A little off topic, but please, if you have a moment, please read;
To all the vets;
Thanks guys for your dedication and service.

Thank ‘s B ! loud and clear as always we all love her but she is high maintenance this Lady of Liberty .
May 27, 2013 @ 6:44 am
Tears were rolling after watching the first video. Thank you to all who have served. We are grateful for your extraordinary sacrifice.
My husband and I had the privilege of riding with Rollling Thunder in Washington, DC yesterday. It was such an honor to pay tribute in this way to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and to the untold numbers of veterans who have given so much, and would do it all again for our freedom.

Hey BNI Is the lebanese that just won the Indy 500 ( Tony Kanaan ) ( On memorial day ) a very hollowed remembrance, a muslim ??? or am I just “digging ” ?? Please let me know ?
Buzz, I don’t follow that kind of racing.
May 26, 2013 @ 11:45 pm
thanks Ms Bonni we need to be reminded of their sacrifice every day. so many of us take our freedom for gr anted and we forget just how precious and valuable it is.
May 26, 2013 @ 11:43 pm
what is very very sad is the number of veterans that commit suicide there every month because their PTSD is so severe that they can no longer function in this world
May 26, 2013 @ 11:41 pm
Thank you to ALL veterans who fought so bravely for our freedoms. HEROES, all of you.
May 26, 2013 @ 11:36 pm
The first video almost made me cry. The Vietnam vets were treated so terribly by their generation. Their generation couldn’t make the distinction between the people that served their country, the politicians who served themselves and the decisions that were made by well intended people. At least our generation is separating able to make the distinctions a hell of a lot better. I hope we continue to do so.
God Bless the Vets and current serviceman, and may He guide our military to make the correct decisions in one of the most critical points in our History.
May 27, 2013 @ 8:01 am
I agree. I often think of Those poor Vets retuning home from Vietnam totally traumatised by the horrors they witnessed and were inflicted upon them by a merciless culture. Few cared even, or helped them, strangled by political correctness. It seemed to herald the beginning of self-hating leftism which devoured the entire Western world.
Look where it has got us ? Unable now to defend ourselves against powerful and utterly cruel enemies devoid of humanity.
May 27, 2013 @ 11:43 am
hanna, Mr. BNI was one of those. Nothing he saw or did in Vietnam was as morally repugnant as how he was looked at when he came home.
May 27, 2013 @ 2:34 pm
Well, my deepest respects to Mr. BNI , the very least he deserves, and to you.
May 27, 2013 @ 2:52 pm
Thanks, Hanna. He has gotten more kind words on this blog than he ever got, even from his family after Vietnam.
May 28, 2013 @ 11:20 am
I too remember the hippy protesters greeting the returning vietnam marines. I also remember a good commanding officer who as the ship docked and he saw all the protesters authorized a “dungaree liberty”. I think Mr BNI can explain that. I was in the Navy during the war. If you haven’t seen it watch the video I posted below “The path of the warrior”. Watch it with Mr BNI.
My best to both of you!
May 28, 2013 @ 12:16 pm
Thanks Dubi. It’s sad that military personnel have to be told not to go out in uniform, which is what is happening in the UK now.

Hello there….its me again……Don Laird…..
My grandfather was an American who crossed the Canadian border and married a Canadian woman, my grandmother……he served with Canada until 1944 until he was released to join his brothers and join he did, the 82nd Airborne….it was with his Brothers he met his death in early 1945………he was one of the reasons I joined…..
I wrote about my reasons for serving in the military…..it was an essay called “Of Gifts and Reason’s Why”……..
Here is an excerpt from that……
“November is a cold month. The edge of winter’s grip can be felt in the winds that clear the last stubborn leaves from the branches of slumbering trees. Strangely, I always felt warm standing on the parade square on the eleventh of November. As I stood with my fellow soldiers on those parade squares I would look across at the audience that sat in the bleachers and stood around its sides. Before me was the reason I was there; the veterans and their wives, the relatives and loved ones and most conspicuous by their absence, the Fallen.
As I looked across the parade square I realized I was looking at men with incredible courage and depth of character, men who were far more courageous than I could ever hope to be. I looked into their aged faces and saw strength, strength that saved a nation, strength that saved the world. These were remnants of legions who crossed oceans to confront a tyrant. Legions who stood with clenched fists, grit teeth staring straight into the storm. Legions who gave Europe her freedom. I looked at the silver, silk and bronze that glittered on their chests, the tokens of a nation’s gratitude. I wondered of the cost of those medals. Before me were men forever changed by the ravages of war, men who would pay the price for their participation long after the ticker tape parades and welcome-home parties had faded away.
Theirs was and is the curse of memory, memories to last a lifetime. Torn from peaceful sleep by the screams of a dying comrade, cradling the shattered body as a life’s blood drained away. The backfire of a car and suddenly they were in the midst of an artillery barrage, huddled in a trench and certain that the next moment would be their last. Of life in those trenches; knee deep in mud and gore, kept company by the moans of the dying and the sound of rats as they consumed the remains of friend and foe alike. The echoes of horrors so unspeakable as to strip a man of his faith and sanity in the twinkling of an eye. The memories of comrades who, unseen, would walk with these men for the remainder of their lives. Yet in spite of all that is the madness of war these men returned, covered the wounds visible and invisible and got on with the task of nation building and raising families. As I stood in silence I listened to the leaves rustling across the parade square and heard through that sound the voices of the Fallen. I heard the words of Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae and saw the faces of the legions who would never return. I knew then that my grandfather was in good company and that I was home.”
Of Gifts and Reasons Why……………
To all my American friends and brothers, we have seen darker times than these times we face now……and tossed and bruised and battered we will be…….but beaten and subdued?……….never.
There is a saying carved in the granite on the Peace Arch Crossing in Blaine, Washington State……..it says “Children of a Common Mother, May These Gates Never Be Closed”……..
To all my American brothers: those gates will never be closed……to each and every one of you, the very best to you and your families…….
Regards, Don Laird
Dogtown, Crankville County

Don, beautiful. Thank you for your service.
May 28, 2013 @ 2:26 am
“Children of a Common Mother, May These Gates Never Be Closed”……..
But it will cost you Canucks to enter.
May 26, 2013 @ 10:43 pm
Thanks for the tear jerking reminders of how great America is. And how much more opposite obama is of our everyday American hero. God help us.
May 26, 2013 @ 11:20 pm
bm, I was so happy to find something different than all the slide show tributes with the God Bless the USA music.
May 27, 2013 @ 12:01 am
BNI, you’ve really outdone yourself with this one. I’m amazed that YouTube hasn’t pulled them all down. But do you realize that what you’re doing here is also a PRICELESS service to our country and to human freedom? Your blog is getting better and always more professional and I am SO PROUD to show your posts to other people.
Yes, our heroes served in ways that we can’t even imagine but you are HONORING them all with your gifts and your determination. PLEZ DON’T STOP! You are far more important than you know.
KAFIR AND PROUD!!
May 27, 2013 @ 12:23 am
Wonderin, thank you. I really tried to post something different than the usual slide show Memorial Day stuff. I must have looked through over 100 videos and picked only the ones that brought a tear to my eye. Patriotic songs, flags flying, and pretty pictures are wonderful to see on a day like this. But sometimes we need to feel.
Glad you liked them.
May 26, 2013 @ 10:24 pm
God bless all our veterans. Were are here because of them. We are free because of them. May they also be honored. With love.
May 26, 2013 @ 10:12 pm
What is despicable is that we do NOT have a WW1 memorial in DC to all WW1 veterans .
May 26, 2013 @ 11:41 pm
the world war II memorial was only recently completed and I agree there should be one for WWI
if you’ve never been to Arlington please go there is a reverence and honor there that can be seen and felt.
May 27, 2013 @ 6:53 am
I agree but we do have the only Memorial for WW1 here in Knasas City
