Marines guilty of endemic violence! Ghosts of my father & grandfather!

Couple of U.S. Marines found guilty of crimes; a Drill Instructor, and a General!

On 10 NOV 2017, a military jury found a Iraq occupation vet, and Drill Instructor (DI), guilty of punching, kicking and choking U.S. Muslim recruits in his charge, one of those U.S. Muslims killed  himself.  The DI was reduced down in rank to private, lost his pay and will spend ten years in a military prison: “Felix was accused in more than three dozen criminal counts of being a central figure in an abusive group of drill instructors at Parris Island that came to light after the March 2016 suicide of one of the three Muslim-American recruits Felix targeted.”-Associated Press

Does anybody remember the U.S. Marines Afghanistan pissing contest, back in 2011?

Now-retired USMC General James Amos found guilty of ‘Unlawful Command Influence’ (UCI) regarding the incident, and as a result the conviction of a Marine sniper involved in the Afghan urinating case has been thrown out.  The court ruled that General Amos used his authority to illegally influence events surrounding the case, and to focus the investigation unfairly on one particular sniper.  Investigations into the UCI by General Amos also included his chief legal adviser, and a Major who resigned from the USMC.

The UCI case against James Amos is considered unprecedented in USMC history.  But USMC violence is not unprecedented, its endemic.

My paternal grandfather is a prime example of a hardcore Marine whose only response to difficult situations, real or imagined, is to fight your way through.

O.G. Hutchins  spent 30+ years in the USMC, serving in World War Two, Korea and Vietnam.  He also served as a DI and recruiter.  He was so hardcore that after his forced retirement he furnished his bedroom in his Jackson, Mississippi, home with wall and foot lockers, a hammock for the bed, and a huge Marine Corps flag covering one wall.

O.G. Hutchins, 30+ years hardcore Marine

I remember one night in a drunken rage he broke a bowl made from walnut shells and began crying about it, saying it was made by one of his buddies in Vietnam.  The next morning he accused me of breaking it, and my father had to intervene to stop hm from beating me.

This wasn’t the first time my father stood up to his father.  In the 1950s, while my grandfather was stationed at Yermo, in California, my father tried to protect his mother from being beaten and got beat himself.  My grandmother could take being beaten by my grandfather, but seeing her son get beat was too much for her. She not only got a divorce but got a California arrest warrant issued for my grandfather.  The Marine Corp protected him from arrest by shipping him outside The Golden State (which was typical back then).

But my father is guilty of being an abuser as well, yes he was a Marine.  My father was a USMC BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) gunner for two years, before transferring to the U.S. Air Force in the early 1960s (you could do that then).  Strangely, after the mid-1970s incident where my grandfather wanted to beat me for his breaking of his Vietnam buddies’ bowl, my father started abusing me whenever he got drunk. This lasted until the early 1980s when he tried to do it in front of some of my high-school friends.  He grabbed me by the neck, made a fist with his free hand, and ordered me to call him ‘sir’.  I looked him in the eyes, then looked at my friends, then back at my father and said “No.” and added “Go ahead.”  Realizing there were witnesses he angrily backed off.

For a few years my mother didn’t believe me about my father’s abuse, until one day he did it in front of her.  I believe that’s what finally lead her to divorce him, she began to fear him and claimed during the divorce trial that he threatened to kill her.  She told me afterwards that she stayed in the marriage for as long as she did because she thought he loved his children, until he tried beating me in front of her.  I have a sister and brother, but for some reason I was the only one he was abusing (as far as I know, I don’t communicate with my siblings), what used to be called a Whipping Boy.

It was after my parents’ divorce that paternal grandmother revealed the abuse at the hands of my grandfather.   While my father and grandfather were both Marines there’s a major difference between them; my grandfather was honest about who he was, my father was a coward.  My grandfather openly told people how he felt about them, how he hated ‘blacks’, how he hated Asians more than blacks, how he hated anybody who wasn’t a Marine (when I told him I joined the Army he cursed me, but later on after I got married and joined the Air Force he forgave me because he was happy at the chance of becoming a great grandfather).

My grandfather honestly told me how, during World War Two, they would murder Japanese PoWs (Prisoners of War) and get away with it by claiming the PoWs were trying to escape (its legal to kill PoWs if they’re attempting to escape).  They would unlock the PoW cage at night, and when the first prisoner opened the cage the Marines would open fire, on everybody in the cage.

He also told me how they would kill women and children, and then blame the Japanese.  There are plenty of reports of the U.S. military trying to help civilians on the islands they were capturing, one way was to drop leaflets telling civilians to surrender themselves to the U.S. forces.  My grandfather said many times, at night, civilians would approach their front lines and try to cross the barbed wire only to be shot down in a hail of bullets as everybody in the unit would ‘open up’ with everything they had.   He said in the morning all you’d see were the bodies old people, women and children hanging the wire.  But he was unphased because he was tired of pulling the bodies of his dead buddies from burned out tanks (he was a tank commander).  The reason why the civilians approached at night was because the Japanese army had orders to shoot any civilian that tried to surrender (the Japanese army was terrible at night operations), but the Marine Corps reported that the civilians were being used as human shields by the Japanese army to probe U.S. defenses.

My grandfather had similar stories about Korea and Vietnam.  He was brutally honest.  My father was the opposite, a bold faced liar.  He was still a ‘racist’, hated a lot of religions (he was raised Lutheran), would complain about government corruption yet as a civil servant joyously took part in ripping off taxpayers (he would actually brag to me about the latest gadget he acquired from the Air Force, without the Air Force knowing about it, or put in for every taxpayer funded education convention when he was a member of the Hesperia school board).  My ‘black’ hating father could convince ‘blacks’ in church that he was ‘on their side’.  At home my father would yell about corporate executives and politicians ruining the country, but then in public, when confronting them he suddenly became the biggest ass-kisser I ever saw!  I think one reason my father started abusing me was because even as a child I was calling him out on his dishonesty (especially on government corruption and his civil service ‘crimes’, and his lies to black church members).  My grandfather would never do that, instead he would risk getting arrested for assaulting people for being ‘in violation’ of his personal beliefs, he admitted to me that the reason he became a Marine was to get away from what he saw as a ‘corrupt’ civilian world.

While my father and grandfather were polar opposites regarding living an honest life, they were both Marines and both dealt with stressful situations with violence, because that’s how a Marine is made. Or is it?  Is it possible that the United States Marine Corps attracts people who are already violent?  It should be noted that even before O.G. Hutchins joined the Marines in the late 1930s he had a history of violence, even being shunned by the larger Hutchins clan of Mississippi because of it.  Education could be a factor, my grandfather made it through only junior-high, as a result he could never find decent paying work, even back then.   My father was always a high achiever; an Eagle Scout, high scoring high-school graduate and a ‘letterman’, even getting an Associates Degree from Victor Valley College while working at Edwards AFB in the 1970s.  Yet my poorly educated grandfather was the honest one, my high achieving father was a liar.

A couple of years before my grandfather’s death he had been barred from every VFW (Veterans Foreign Wars) post in the Jackson area, for causing fights (and he was in his late 60s/early 70s). He openly hated anybody who “wasn’t a Marine” or wasn’t ‘white’, at least I can respect him for living his brutal life openly and honestly, especially since the highest academic education level he achieved was junior-high.

On Top of Ol’ Smokey, no more?

U.S. Army Caisson Platoon, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) at the Caisson Stables, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Virginia, forced one of its most dedicated personnel to retire after only 15 years of service.

Smokey, a Caisson horse, is retiring after taking part in 4-thousand funerary missions!

Caisson horses are those used by the U.S. Army to pull Caissons, which are converted old-school artillery wagons that carry caskets of important dead people.

When a Caisson horse is about to retire it goes up for adoption, apparently for free!  Smokey was adopted by a family in Tennessee.

U.S. Marines and Sailors conducting pandemic influenza isolation at the U.S. Naval Hospital, Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan.

Despite the supposed chaos created by the outbreak, personnel acted quickly to isolate areas, transport and treat patients, and maintain order.

Trick!  It’s part of a yearly training exercise called Constant Vigilance.

However, this year’s CV2017 (or CV17) focused on the new deadlier version of H7N9: “This exercise engaged the joint community on-island including: Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, MCIPAC, 18th Wing, and U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa; all working together to determine how we would respond to a pandemic crisis.”-Brigadier General Paul Rock Junior, USMC

Gun Ban Fail: Security Guard burns to death school children!

05 OCT 2017 (13:58 UTC-07 Tango 06) 12 Mehr 1396/13 Muharram 1439/16 Geng-Xu 4715

A 50 years old former security guard is accused of setting a kindergarten on fire, killing four children and their teacher, 40 others are wounded (25 hospitalized, 15 treated and released), most of the children are four or five years old.  The attacker also set himself on fire and is dead.

Locals believe the attack was vengeance by the security guard for being fired, after eight years on-the-job. Other reports say the security guard was suffering from health problems and asked for time off, but was told to get a doctor’s excuse. Police haven’t confirmed either report.  It happened in Janaúba, Minas Gerais, Brazil.   The local hospital is asking for donations of supplies that are specific for treating burns.

Why didn’t the security guard use a gun?  Afterall, Brazil is flooded with illegal guns, and there’s neverending gun violence:“Clashes between drug dealers and the police have been frequent since last Friday, September 29th, when the Army left Rocinha after a week of occupation.”

Also: Former Rio Olympics official arrested for fraud discovered to be in possession of illegal guns.

Maybe it’s not the gun that drives people to kill?

“In Brazil, all firearms are required to be registered with the minimum age for gun ownership being 25. It is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence, and a special permit granting the right to do so is granted to certain groups, such as law enforcement officers. To legally own a gun, an owner must hold a gun license, which costs BRL R$1000, and pay a fee every three years to register the gun, currently at BRL R$85. Registration can be done online or in person with the Federal Police.”-Wikipedia

More than 90 personnel of South Dakota Army National Guard’s Company C, 1st Battalion, 189th Aviation Regiment deploying to the Middle East, to provide aerial medevac ops.

They held a deployment ceremony on 27 SEP 2017.  Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender pointed out that many of those deploying work as emergency responders or law enforcement personnel at their ‘civilian’-local government jobs.

Military sources say its the third deployment to the Middle East for the South Dakota Guard unit.

Pacific Angel, it’s about the oil: Your tax dollars spent on education and healthcare in Vietnam and Philippines!

20 SEP 2017 /21:15 UTC-07 Tango 06 (30 Sharivar 1396/29 Dhu l-Hijja 1438/02 Ji-Yu 4715)

Operation Pacific Angel (PacAngel) is a recurring U.S. Pacific Command operation in which your hard earned tax dollars are spent on building up the education and healthcare infrastructure of countries like British empire member Fiji, Nepal, ‘former’ U.S. territory of Philippines and the old nemesis of the U.S., Vietnam.

It’s under the guise of ‘humanitarian’ aid but is more likely about winning over the countries that border the oil rich South China Sea.  It began under the Bush Jr regime as Oceana Mission, but under the Obama regime was renamed Pacific Angel.

Fiji: 3,872 people received healthcare in Tavua and Savusavu, as well as infrastructure projects for local schools.

Nepal: Provided medical care to 4,041 people, and infrastructure improvements made to five sites.

Philippines: In Northern Cebu Province, 6,657 people received medical care, seven facilities were renovated on top of getting $35-thousand USD in medical equipment and supplies.

Vietnam: Healthcare and infrastructure engineering improvements at several locations in the Tam Ky area.  “The challenge here is wanting to do more.”-Captain Rebecca Englebretson, USAF

Pacific Angel is just one of many U.S. taxpayer funded military ‘humanitarian’ operations taking place every year around the world.  If taxpayers can be forced to pay for education, infrastructure and healthcare for other countries then why is it such a problem to fund healthcare, education and infrastructure right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.?

“We love doing this. This is our favorite part of the year!   …..We run a great risk in this, if there’s an up-draft of heat, or a down-draft, we have to be able to be ‘Johnny-on-the-spot’ to keep us in the air. There’s a lot more challenge in it, risk versus reward. It’s super rewarding when we are combating open flame all day long.”-Sergeant Joseph Ford, Oregon National Guard

Oregon Army National Guard’s Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 168th Aviation Regiment has dropped more than 4.5-million liters (1.2-million U.S. gallons) of water using three of their new CH-47 F-model Chinooks, in the past month and a half.

“Where else can you go where you get to do this? I have the coolest job in the world! One morning I’m at my home station, and later that afternoon I’m 5-hundred-miles away, supporting a state mission and dropping buckets of water. I get a lot of satisfaction doing these state missions.”-Sergeant Jeremy Maddox

“Those Air Attack guys have been doing this often for 20-to-30 years to get to this level, they know the big picture…we can’t put the fire out completely, but what we can do is help control it, and keep it from spreading certain directions.”-Chief Warrant Officer 2 David Brannen

“There is a lot of helicopter on the Chinooks back here (behind the flight deck or cockpit), that the pilots can’t see. Our job is to paint a picture for them, a mental picture they can’t see, so they know and feel comfortable with what we’re going into. It takes a lot of trust in the back-seaters from the pilots. It’s a team effort. Without one, the job can’t be accomplished.”-Sergeant Jeremy Maddox

ObamaCare Fail: Operation Healthy Delta=free health & economic aid at taxpayer expense!

20 SEP 2017 (12:23 UTC-07 Tango 06) 29 Sharivar 1396/28 Dhu l-Hijja 1438/01 Ji-Yu 4715

The U.S. Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower & Reserve Affairs, and the Delta Regional Authority, sponsor an annual event called Operation Healthy Delta.  The operation was started by an act of Congress in 2000 (blame Bush Jr) to provide healthcare to people living in the Delta Region, yet the advent of ObamaCare-ACA has apparently done nothing to improve healthcare services in that area so Operation Healthy Delta is underway again.

This year Air National Guard units from Missouri, New Jersey and New York, as well as the U.S. Navy Reserve, are wrapping-up providing free healthcare (and other aid) to people in the Bootheel Region.  They expect to see between 5-thousand and 8-thousand patients in Charleston and Caruthersville, Missouri.

Operation Healthy Delta is not just about taxpayer funded healthcare, but also includes taxpayer funded economic development across eight U.S. states.

It should be noted that this year’s health services were held at two churches; Charleston United Methodist Church and Eastwood Memorial United Methodist Church: “The local churches have gone above and beyond to accommodate this event. Methodists and Catholics are working together in Caruthersville, and Baptists and Methodists are working together in Charleston.”-Joel Evans, Delta Area Economic Opportunity Corporation

What was that about separation of church and state?
