  • Post 9/11 GI Bill

        One of the greatest benefits of having served in the Armed Forces of our Nation is the education benefits.  The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) education assistance program, Post 9/11 GI Education Bill, began August 1, 2009, and provides training and/or education assistance to eligible veterans and dependents.

    Fire Robin Reed


        Fire Robin Reed. Yes he should be fired for taking this long to make a decision on the Stalin bust.
        Anyone making the kind of money he is making and can’t make a decision within 48 to 72 hours should not be in a responsible position.
        And anyone associated with any responsibility for the Stalin bust should be terminated also.
        He [Stalin] is not what the Memorial is all about.

  • Illegal immigration

    On Thursday, Arizona’s new illegal immigration law is set to take effect. The United States Justice Department, however, and the Obama Administration continue to challenge the law while the federal judge who heard the case has yet to decide if she’ll put the statute on hold until her ruling is made.

    Unbelievable

        I just received a really unbelievable mailing from Tom Perriello’s office.  The mailing, states “This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense” and quotes a Charlottesville newspaper: “Perriello Wins High Marks in Frugality. Of the 11 congressmen from Virginia, U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello was the most frugal with taxpayer money in 2009...”

  • Enforcing our laws to reduce illegal immigration

    If you were to take a drive along Interstate 8 in Arizona, many miles north of the border, you would very likely come upon signs, placed by the U.S. government, warning travelers of possible danger including drug and human smuggling, armed criminals, and other suspicious activities.  The signs, which have been placed by the Federal Bureau of Land Management throughout parts of Arizona, are evidence of the very serious and growing problem of illegal immigration. Unfortunately, the federal government has done little more to combat this problem than place these warning signs.

  • In memory of a good friend

    In 1951, 10 days before Christmas, three friends stood in front of Green’s Drug Store and shook hands for the last time. One of them, Bobby Daniels, never came home from Korea. His unit was overrun. A Marine said the Chinese got Bobby there.

        That December day, Bobby was wearing an Army uniform, Jack Karnes was in a paratrooper uniform and I was wearing an Air Force uniform.
