The Richest Place on Earth


This past week I had the honor and the privilege of participating in the “Wreaths Across America” program with the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars). I drove with others to several cemeteries across Southeastern Pennsylvania and placed wreaths on the graves of fallen Veterans. It truly was a wonderful experience, and one that I will be taking on, on a larger scale, for many years to come.

All of that time walking through rows of graves, for hours on end, searching out the specific plots, some more well cared for than others, really got me thinking about something that I heard long ago, and that I echoed earlier this year in my “What is Freedom?” video. Read the rest of this page »


Stay Alert… “STAY ALIVE!!!”


The title of this post comes from one of the many mantras that was first drilled into my mind, and shouted at the top of my lungs every nine seconds or so while attending the U.S. Army Infantry School at Ft. Benning GA back in the year 2000 (you can see my dapper, awkward teen face in the above photo).

The teachings from those ever so gentle and understanding Infantry Drill Sergeants would go on to serve me well in the years to come, both at war, and since my departure from the service. Read the rest of this page »


Yesterday’s You


If you had to go head to head with a clone of yourself from yesterday, who would come out on top?

I mean this not just in the physical sense, as in which “You” would dick kick, throat punch, and pink belly the other, but in an overall mental and physical preparedness/awesomeness sort of way.

I want you to pause for a second, stop philosophizing about whether a mutual handy with your clone would make you, him, both, or neither of you gay (if you weren’t thinking that, you are now… you’re welcome), and really give my question some thought. Read the rest of this page »

Veterans Day 2015


This past week has been a hectic one to say the least. It unfortunately kicked off with a scare involving my youngest son (13 months) having to go to Children’s hospital with pneumonia and a partially collapsed lung, something that any of you who are parents know can be quite nerve-wracking. I’m happy to say that he is doing much better now, and that the latter portion of the week, though incredibly busy, was much more enjoyable.

As you know, this past Wednesday was Veteran’s Day. For some it is just another day, one which you probably don’t even have off from work or school for. For those who are Veterans, or those who have Veterans near and dear to them however, it is a very important holiday. Read the rest of this page »


Green Light a Vet


For those of you who are not aware, there is an excellent movement taking place in the States that I am in whole-hearted support of, and that I would love to see as many of you take part in as possible.

The movement is called “Green Light a Vet”, and getting involved is as simple as changing one of your outside light bulbs, visible to the community, to green as a show of support for the brave men and women that make up our Veteran’s community.
