    I don’t know how many men we killed that day, but the numbers had to be very high. All of the pilots were quiet as we flew back to our base in Normandy – there was no radio chatter. We each shared the agony of what we had just done. We were traumatized, but there had been no other option. If we had let them go, we knew that they would be killing American boys in a couple of days.

    In my nightmares I still vividly picture that scene. After more than 50 years, it still haunts me. I deal with it, but think for a moment what it must be like to have to deal with it.

    There is no glamour in war. You kill people – and you see your friends die. The only honor involved is what you yourself bring to the process. You try to do the job you know you must do – and you try desperately to keep your sanity. But you are forever changed. You are no longer young; in a matter of months you have aged years. Though you have physically survived, you have lost more than life itself; you have lost part of your soul.

    The Endless Trauma of A Deadly Combat Mission


    Quentin C. Aanenson

    It was late August 1944, and Patton’s Armored Divisions were in a mad dash to the Seine River, trying to catch the rapidly retreating Germans before they could escape. I was flying in a flight of four Thunderbolts patrolling the Seine to do everything we could to prevent their crossing.

    Up to this time most of the Germans had been crossing at night to escape our attacks, but on this particular day – with Patton’s tanks rapidly approaching them – the Germans were forced into trying to cross during the daytime. It was late afternoon near the town of les Andelys when we suddenly spotted them. What happened during the next 10 minutes will stay fixed in my memory as long as I live.

    The German troops were crowded on barges, in small boats, just anything that would float. We caught the barges in midstream, and the killing began. I was the third plane in the attack, and when I pulled in on the target a terrible sight met my eyes. Men were desperately trying to get off the barges into the water, where large numbers of men were already fighting to make it to shore. My eight .50 caliber machine guns fired a hundred rounds a second into this hell. As the last P-47 pulled off the target, the first plane was making its second strafing pass, and the deadly process continued. In about three passes we had used up our ammunition, so we pulled up and circled this cauldron of death.

    A soldier and his video, Quentin Aanenson made a documentary “A Fighter Pilot’s Story”. To me it is the most thorough projection a civilian can experience of war through a soldier’s eyes. It touched me in a profound way and I feel a debt of gratitude to him, and all our soldiers. I encourage all of you to seek out a copy of his video and experience this yourself. Quentin passed away December 29th, 2008 but his website is still maintained by his family. Here is one of the articles from his website that I feel is very appropriate.

    I will post that in the following reply window…

    I wish her great success. I hope she becomes a model of conservative “color blindness” values and principles. That we DO look at content of character and quality of service and not race, age, sex, etc wish is the foundation of the PC liberal/progressive mindset and the source of most of this world’s problems.

    Ryan starts with a big fat ZERO in my book and must earn any respect or credence. I’ve been too naive and “hopeful” for too damn long. I will not give any sway to anyone that does not hold to the the letter and spirit of our Constitution and foundations of our Republic. We already know Ryan falls far short of this… Until he proves himself, he’s just another progressive RINO

    That interview changed me… It shattered my naive hopes that there was any possibility these “representative” would or could do their jobs. I think Glenn was not harsh enough.. I don’t think any of us have been “harsh” enough. We do no ask candidates what they believe or will do.. we TELL THEM… and we back up our words with actions.. We throw out those who even give even a hint of compromise on their dedication to this nation and the people they serve. We put our money where our mouth is… Our Lives, Our Fortune, our Sacred Honor – May they live long enough to see their children and grand children suffer in the tyranny they’ve doomed this nation to.

    I CRY for our nation as the masses sleep!

    This was a “last straw” for me. I still believe there are some good people in politics, but not the right people for what is needed to be done. We can not look to our Federal representatives to solve this problem because they are the problem. You can not make a Ferrari our of YUGO parts. Rep. Loudermilk says this is the last chance before the country is destroyed, and yet he “Hopes” Ryan is the right guy and will do what is needed? This is not some frick’n carnival game of chance… it is the final step into darkness. Glenn may have been a bit “harsh” but I am so glad he held Loudermilk’s feet to the fire. If Ryan is all we think he is, they will be a tremendous back lash, never seen, in our lifetimes. Hell has no furry like a patriot scorned.

    I don’t know if anyone at The Blaze will see this but I want to thank all those involved in collecting these facts about the victims and families. This is what real media should be. Not the “dirty laundry” aspect where “It’s interesting when people die” that 99% of main stream media seem to cover. Even worse is how the President did not even think about the individual.. he never does… He has no compassion for any of us… especially those who cling to their bibles and their guns. Maybe, this will be a real wake-up call to the sensible in this nation. Those who still think logically and not emotionally. This could have been a lot less tragic, if it was not a “gun free” zone. God Bless and Comfort the families and friends of those who died and were wounded.

    Lets start a “The Blaze” campaign that every time President O, (or others key figures) opens his pie-whole about “Gun Control” we all donate a $1 to the NRA for that week. That would be, maybe $10,000 dollars each time? Maybe it would grow to $100,000? Maybe it would spread across the NRA community and be millions!! .. A win for the NRA, and a message to the Gun Control Zealots…”The more you attack our rights, the stronger we will become” Just a thought!

    This is the selfie he was proud to share? What does this say about one’s self concept? Values, principles ect.? That which you gaze upon you become. What is very sad to me is a culture with values and principle that can only lead to failure. Not just his culture, but so many in our society today.

    So many people seem to think that the “right” president is the solution to the problems in this country. It is only a small part of the solution. If Trump was the real deal he would be empowering the American Citizens. His history shows love of himself, power and money and this will always be his priorities. We have an arrogant self-centered president already and look where that got us. Government is the problem.. and WE THE PEOPLE have given up our personal responsibilities as guardians of our inalienable rights. We need to get into city council meetings and PTA meetings and face to face with our politicians, not in front of the TV or some other self-centered activity. The solution lies within US and how we manage our local needs and hold true to the spirit of our Constitution.

    Nobody can predict the future, but Mr Beck has had a very good record of seeing the general direction of current events, their historical precedents and consequences. I know a well informed Soldier who’s master’s degree is in Counter Insurgency and is a prolific reader on the topic of modern warfare. He says we are at war now with China as well a Russia and their proxy nations. Modern warfare, uses a completely different tactic than what we saw in past world wars. Modern wars are fought economically, technologically, politically, socially, etc.. to weaken the targeted nation, but never obviously. You do not strike till it is proper time at your enemy greatest points of vulnerabilities. Winning a war without firing a shot. Plus, you have to understand the mindset of China and the tactics they employ. Read Sun Tzsu – The Art of War and maybe you will understand that the sky IS falling and just does not meet your limited expectations. Since you obviously have little knowledge of the face of modern warfare, maybe you should study up on this topic before you discount what Mr Beck is saying.

    What I feel he is getting at is that when times get extremely difficult, those who can turn to a higher power, or can maintain hope, high personal standards, have the faith and will to go forward, will fare much better than those who cannot. These are qualities of people who believe in something greater than themselves. This is not always people who believe in the formal religions, but they all share similar values and principles. The question is not “what” will happen but how you respond. Self-centered people are on a much smaller and unstable foundation.

    You deserve it you slimy bass-tard… A liar is a liar and I’m pleased the light has been shown on the truth!

  • [3] July 26, 2015 at 7:42am

    PUNISH – That word is at the forefront of many (if not most) of Obama’s actions. Obama is a bitter, hateful man who’s live goal is to get “even”( ie equality), with all those who believe in self-determination, personal responsibility, and individual liberties. For surely his struggle is someone else’s fault.

  • [5] July 16, 2015 at 3:27pm

    100% chance they blame the evil gun.
