The New York Times this weekend ran a horrifying story about how U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan are being forced to look the other way as officers among America’s Muslim allies openly sexually abuse young boys. The Times story leads with a recounting of a phone call from Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. to his father, saying that …

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced on Monday that the Pentagon’s rules regarding transgender troops are outdated and ordered a six-month review to determine how to integrate them into the military. Carter said that the working group will examine the regulations to determine if integrating transgenders would affect combat readiness. But — here it comes — …

Since taking office six and half years ago, Barack Obama has slashed our military might by over half of what it was. He has reduced the number of military personnel, navy ships, planes, tanks and nuclear weapons at the same time Putin and other national leaders have been building up their military forces. The other …

It begins. Mikey Weinstein, an atheist and longtime pro-homosexual activist who has the ears of some of the Pentagon’s top commanders, has wasted no time in capitalizing on Friday’s homosexual “marriage” ruling. Making a quick lie out of the court majority’s promise that Christians would be allowed under Friday’s ruling to continue exercising their beliefs …

Around this time last year members of Congress from both parties began pushing the ENLIST Act. Heritage wrote at the time that the act “would give illegal immigrants near instant citizenship if they volunteer for military service.” ENLIST stands for “Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training.” I’ve heard some lame acronyms, but that’s a whopper. I wonder who was …

I believe that America is kept safe by the military, which has had a spiritual shield held over it from before we were even a country — by the chaplains. But today chaplains are under enormous pressure to fully embrace political correctness. Meet Lt. Commander Wes Modder, a chaplain in the U.S. Navy. About fifteen years …

Texas is not just a large state full of oil and conservatives, but it’s also home to many military bases and citizen militia units. Houston is one of the nation’s main financial hubs along with New York and Chicago. On October 2, 1835, a number of Texans rebelled against their Mexican rule by declaring Texas …

McMinnville, TN is a quaint rural town of about 13,000 residents that lies about half way between Nashville and Chattanooga. They are known more for the 450 plant nurseries that generate over $300 million a year. Located in McMinnville is Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary School, named after a young Navy hero who died during Vietnam. …

I recall hearing about impending offensive military actions about to take place during our involvement in Vietnam. The Tet Offensive was broadcast across our televisions prior to its launch and hundreds of American troops were killed or wounded. Of course it never made sense to me that America had to get approval from the UN …

A lot of conservatives are watching Dr. Ben Carson to see if he is going to run for the 2016 Republican nomination for president. At first Carson said he was not going to run, but after hearing from so many people in support of him, it seems likely he may run. Chris Wallace, host of …

Army Rangers are an elite group of trained military personnel. Many soldiers apply for Ranger training but few are chosen and fewer still complete the grueling training required to be called an Army Ranger. Captain Joe Lawhorn is one of those few, but he’s not just an Army Ranger, he’s also a military chaplain. Part …

Ever since Barak Hussein Obama illegally moved into the White House I have criticized virtually everything he has done. Someone recently asked me what I would do if I were president.
