Allen Ness Sounds off about Sexual Misconduct

Posted by:

Otherwise Titled: Our 21st Century Paratrooper (Allen Ness) Updates this 20th Century Garritrooper (Vassar) about Sexual Misconduct in the Modern Military

My comment: Damn! Anything that interferes with the harmony and cohesion of this organic team, off with their heads.

False accusations of rape/sexual harassment are running amok in the Army these days. Half the lawmakers see the Army as the Defense of our Nation the other half see’s it as a petri dish for their social justice programs, and in the ...

Veteran Gets to watch First Atomic Cannon Text in Nevada, 1953

Posted by:

 

I had the good fortune of meeting a retired Army Sergeant Major (E-9) named Frederic Barnett at a gym, where his son brings him for physical therapy. Mid-80s, uses a rolling walker, SGM Barnett is very affable and I approached the both of them and gave them the VeteransTales site address. I said I wanted to hear some of his stories, and would bring a tablet and let him tell some of them the to me and I’d write them up. Continue Reading →

Democrat Veteran Returns Home Service. Didn’t Recognize His Country. (video)

Posted by:

A little food for thought from one who just returned from duty overseas. How unfortunate for this young man to return home and not recognize his country. Yet, this young soldier is not willing to give up on the Republic.

Two Soldiers Accused of Rape, Part One

Posted by:

Since “She said-He said” is all the political rage right now, I have a couple of cases that are almost on point, both of which point out the reason why our judicial system of evidence is so important.

At one time I had planned on turning both of these tales into short stories and maybe even a script, but the thought left me years ago.

The first was a case where a WAC accused an Army sergeant of rape, told here, and ...

SOS on Toast

Posted by:

The other morning one of our local radio personalities was pitching a fancy restaurant in the Richmond area, and he proudly announced that their most popular entre was chipped beef on toast. A ten dollar platter these days, and whudda thunk it? People paying ten dollars for the most plebeian dish in America, the breakfast anchor for five wars at least for every grunt who ever sat in a mess hall, since Pearl Harbor.

All those memories came rushing forward. I tried to remember how ...

Gays in the Military, a Wartime Remembrance

Posted by:

  “Policies Concerning Homosexuals” have changed since I was an Army defense lawyer in the closing years of the Vietnam War. “Being boarded out” was a large part of my defense work.

I’d be interested to know how attitudes stand up to today versus how it was during that war. In 2010 homosexuality became totally legal in the US military, but I wonder if anything has changed.

For one, it never seemed to matter except in combat units and in barracks situations, such as basic training, ...
