My special thanks for all of those who suffered on my behalf, protecting and ensuring my freedom.
Most of all, to those who never were able to come home and feel, once again, the dirt, the grass, the trees, the hugs of their loved ones.
Peace to all of your souls. You will never be forgotten!

You certainly don't have to bleed for your country to love it. But I just wonder how many of these libs would bleed for Clinton? Talk is cheap...

Capt. (Ret.) Vincent E. Baker, my husband. He landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 at H+90 with the 58th AFABn and served as a forward artillery observer from D-Day to VE-Day. He was wounded five times, received two Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars with the "V" device for Valor. We went back to the Beach and the Cemetery in '84 and '94. In '84, the veterans of the landing were allowed on the beach to walk and reflect and to tell their stories to their loved ones who'd accompanied them. It was a totally different story in '94, when the beach was blocked off for several hours to the veterans so Clinton & Clinton could perform their phony task of arranging a cross of rocks on the sand. To think of that sacred ground being sullied by those people makes me sick to this day.

1963 to 1986 - Army Security Agency (ASA) and Army Intelligence and Security Command, (INSCOM). 1964 to 1979 I chased bad guys all over South East Asia Viet Nam 12-22-64 to 12-8-65 - 3rd Radio Research Unit, Davis Station, Viet Nam. Stations named for SP4 James T. Davis, the first American soldier deliberately targeted for death by the Viet Cong, or, at that time, the Viet Minh. Traveled extensively around the country chasing Charlie and his radios for targeting. Also assigned to 51st ASA Special Operations Command, headquartered on Okinawa, providing support to MAC SOG, Special Forces and other tailored organizations, chasing bad guys all over in Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Viet Nam. 3 tours in Thailand in '68, '72-'73 and '75-'76.1979 - 1982 In Germany chasing soviet Union bad guys.1982 - 1986 In the States with lots of time spent in Central and South America chasing Communist and drug running bad guys. Retired from the Army in 1986 an E8, Master Sergeant, and am now a "Consultant" to folks chasing bad guys of whatever stripe. I turned down the opportunity to put on Sergeants Major stripes cause I refused to be "Politically Correct" in 1986. There were some policies of the Army that I could not support, and my sense of duty told me that if I couldn't do that then it was time to go. This country cries out for a leader so good and powerful that we would gladly follow him through the gates of Hell to fight evil - and be grateful that we were allowed to go along on the campaign.

A must read for people interested in little pieces of unrecorded history. Most of these stories occured in Vietnam, and were written by members of the Army Security Agency. Some of them will make you laugh, some will make you cry, but all will aquaint you with what it was really like on a day to day basis for the guys that worked, lived and died in South Vietnam from the mid 50's to the late 70's. Until recently the very presence of the ASA in Vietnam wasn't even acknowledged by the U.S. Government. These units were operating under the guise of a Radio Research Unit.

I have hope for America! Ronald Reagan took the shambles left to him by Jimmy Carter and rebuilt this nation to a height of military might and prestige not seen since the end of WWII. A strong, moral leader will undo the incalculable damage Clintoon has perpetrated on our Nation and on our Armed Forces.
