Staff Sgt. (then Specialist) Ty Michael Carter


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty: Specialist Ty M. Carter distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a Scout with Bravo Troop, 3d Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, during combat operations against an armed enemy in Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan on October 3, 2009.
On that morning, Specialist Carter and his comrades awakened to an attack of an estimated 300 enemy fighters occupying the high ground on all four sides of Combat Outpost Keating, employing concentrated fire from recoilless rifles, rocket propelled grenades, anti-aircraft machine guns, mortars and small arms fire. Specialist Carter reinforced a forward battle position, ran twice through a 100 meter gauntlet of enemy fire to resupply ammunition and voluntarily remained there to defend the isolated position. Armed with only an M4 carbine rifle, Specialist Carter placed accurate, deadly fire on the enemy, beating back the assault force and preventing the position from being overrun, over the course of several hours. With complete disregard for his own safety and in spite of his own wounds, he ran through a hail of enemy rocket propelled grenade and machine gun fire to rescue a critically wounded comrade who had been pinned down in an exposed position. Specialist Carter rendered life extending first aid and carried the Soldier to cover.
On his own initiative, Specialist Carter again maneuvered through enemy fire to check on a fallen Soldier and recovered the squad's radio, which allowed them to coordinate their evacuation with fellow Soldiers. With teammates providing covering fire, Specialist Carter assisted in moving the wounded Soldier 100 meters through withering enemy fire to the aid station and before returning to the fight. Specialist Carter's heroic actions and tactical skill were critical to the defense of Combat Outpost Keating, preventing the enemy from capturing the position and saving the lives of his fellow Soldiers.
Specialist Ty M. Carter's extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, Bravo Troop, 3d Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division and the United States Army



Staff Sgt. Carter: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy six living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

Wannabee presidential candidates get to fly around the country, eat for free and make speeches to people who think they might have a slight chance of relevance. They don't. By siphoning votes away from credible candidates, they prolong the primary season and clutter the process with their egos.

The Things That Happen When You're Not Paying Attention, Voter Fraud Division

I hadn't done a poll here in quite a while, so I decided to do one this last weekend. Lo and behold, the widget that used to let you easily post a poll on Blogger was nowhere in sight! So, I put up the poll on Twitter, and you can cast your vote here in the comments.

A Little Saturday Night Music

MUGSY SPANIER - UGLY CHILD



Sammy Davis Jr. used to sing this. His version started out:

Now when I was just a baby, they used to say "How cute!"

Even when I was seven or eight, they said this boy's a beaut!

Well, I went back home the other day. To see that old gang of mine.

I asked them what they thought of me and they put it on the line,

they told me: "You're ugly! You some ugly child!"

The clothes that you wear are out of style

You look like a fool every time you smile

How we hate you, you alligator bait you

why don't you lay down and die?

You're knock-kneed, bow legged, boxed backed, too!

There's a curse on your family and it fell on you!

Your hair is nappy, Who's your Pappy?

You some ugly child!

Then Sammy would add...

But I don't care! 'Cause I make a lot of money!

Quote du jour

The MSM lies to us all the time. Sometimes, they just quote the politicians who are lying to us, of every political stripe. First, we recognize that the largest problem we face is not political or social, but spiritual. That does not absolve us from striving against those problems, but it puts into perspective the nature of the underlying cause.

November 22, 1963 - In Remembrance

From the archives (updated) and a day late!:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Today Yesterday marks the 55th. anniversary of the passing of a great man. One who left his mark on his country and his culture. One who is still quoted to this day. On November 22, 1963, the world little noted his passing in the shock and outpouring of grief over the assassination of JFK. That man was Clive Staple Lewis…oddly enough, like JFK, ”Jack” to his friends.

C. S. Lewis, author of The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia, was a contemporary and friend of J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also an atheist who came to Christianity, in his own words, “kicking and screaming”, who became one of its strongest apologists.

You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen, night after night, feeling, whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. That which I greatly feared had at last come upon me. In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.
-Surprised by Joy

His books have been translated into dozens of languages and sold millions of copies over the years. Anthony Hopkins portrayed him in the movie Shadowlands (1993), the story of his romance with American poet Joy Gresham, who died of cancer a mere handful of years after they met.

His life was rich and varied. His sorrows deep and vast. His legacy is enduring.

In our remembrance of those who passed this day, one might do well to remember what can be accomplished with just a pair of Jacks!

Medal of Honor




Lance Corporal William Kyle Carpenter


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an Automatic Rifleman with Company F, Second Battalion, Ninth Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, FIRST Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM on 21 November 2010. Lance Corporal Carpenter was a member of a platoon-sized coalition force, comprised of two reinforced Marine rifle squads partnered with an Afghan National Army squad.
The platoon had established Patrol Base DAKOTA two days earlier in a small village in the Marjah District in order to disrupt enemy activity and provide security for the local Afghan population. Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base DAKOTA when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved toward the grenade in an attempt to shield his fellow Marine from the deadly blast. When the grenade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine.
By his undaunted courage, bold fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of almost certain death, Lance Corporal Carpenter reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.


Lance Corporal Carpenter: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

The Pirates of Pittance



I am the very model of a modern major socialist
I've studied economics, but too many classes I have missed.

I know the triple chambers of the Congress categorical,
From Speaker of the House unto Vice President Al Goreical.

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters quite bartenderial,
I may look like an intern, but I'm really quite shmendrikial,

My policies may look like they are mostly Venezuel-e-an
But also quite correctly you can say just how 'cray cray' I am.

(With apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan)
