Tomb of the Unknowns

Monday, May 29th, 2006

One more Memorial Day post, if you’ll permit me. Ian over at Expose the Left has video of Fox’s Power Player of the week from yesterday’s show. It is Army Staff Seargent Alfred Lanier, who is in charge of the Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington Cemetery. It’s […]

Joe Comer

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

A friend of mine, a man whom I have never actually met, is dying. His name is Joe Comer, and we both started blogging at about the same time over at The Daily Brief. I could say more, but a fellow Daily Briefer, AProudVeteran, has a much better tribute, one she originally posted […]

Purple Finger for Freedom
