Paco-1234 Capt. O'Grady was not rescued by your unit in Pisa Italy. He was rescued by a composite squadron of Marines from the USS Kearsage. If anything Gen. Fogleman risked O'Grady's life when he announced at a change of command ceremony that they were receiving intermittent transmissions from O'Grady. The two Super Stallion helicopters picked him up with a total of 7 minutes on station and turfed at 175 knots at 150' off the deck receiving small arms fire and attempted missile locks on the way out. He was rescued by the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit/Special Operations Capable. 24th MEU/SOC. aboard a helicopter belonging to the Wolfpack.
I've paid into Social Security and Medicare my entire adult life and have collected a total of not one cent. PeggyJoy please enlighten me as to how much I have to reimburse the Government? These payments are taken out of my paycheck automatically, so yeah they are forced on me. These funds have been robbed by both democrats and republicans for over 40 years, but only the liberal democrats add to the theft by concluding that I would somehow owe them a reimbursement.
A lot of the people writing those checks are elderly. They do that to stall for time because the only human contact they may have that day is the clerk. If you watch they also tend to have favorite cashiers that they go to. In that case I have no problem waiting for them. How about scratch ticket winners that stand at the register and scratch off tickets while your trying to pay for your items.
It's important that the UB publish this type of thing as a reminder that they walk among us. Kind of a public service alert. lol.
When I left the military I left my gun behind too. They wouldn't let me keep it!
Good call Mr. Nagle.
paco1234-Why do all your statements revolve around other posters comments all of which are derogatory because they don't fit you're view?
Not that it is anybody's business how many rounds my guns hold, but the greater question would be How does he know in advance the amount of rounds you are going to need for an evolving self-defense situation?
We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects – such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons.
We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.
We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.
We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.
We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps
We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext.

We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
Paco-1234, You claim Enlisted and Officer, I appreciate that, but your posts seem to contradict both the Oath of Enlistment and the Officers Oath. Have you changed your mind since retirement or did you just recite it as a means to further your career?
All officers of the seven Uniformed services of the United States swear or affirm an oath of office upon commissioning. It differs slightly from that of the oath of enlistment that enlisted members recite when they enter the service. It is required by statute, the oath being prescribed by Section 3331, Title 5, United States Code. It is traditional for officers to recite the oath upon promotion but as long as the officer's service is continuous this is not actually required. One notable difference between the officer and enlisted oaths is that the oath taken by officers does not include any provision to obey orders; while enlisted personnel are bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders, officers in the service of the United States are bound by this oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States. Upon enlistment the enlistee swears to uphold the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Police Officers also defend the Constitution.
Paco-1234, I suggest you go to the Oath Keepers website and read their 10 Oaths before you even think about what you know about Law enforcement or the military's mindset on disarming the population on any scale. Neither one gives a damn about magazine size or deer rifles.
