The Command Sergeant Major (retired) has gone farther, done more, and given more than most. He's tenancious, resolute, and stubbornly independent. In short, he has "been there, done that." You may be able to kick him, but you won't be able to keep him down. He may be quiet for a spell, but it's not because he's been silenced. He speaks on his terms, with his own mind, at the time of his own choosing.
Of course, he's still linking to our old url, but it'll still bring you back here, if it's a story you want to read.
CSM Vanguard a helluvan NCO and Warrior, who has led the best (SFC Smith) and dealt with the worst (Adam Kokesh). He's pushed through more than most could fathom. He calls it straight, as he sees it. And with today's short term American memory, it would be good for people to hear the part of history he influenced. It would be good for the youth of today's Army, and for the politicians who claim we won't ever fight a war against an amassed Army to hear again, how just 8 years ago, we were doing just that. It would do them good to hear how one Senior NCO held the line against Saddam's Army, at the Baghdad International Airport.
But don't stop in unless you can appreciate someone who'll tell you what he really thinks. And if you need it sugarcoated, you probably ought not read his site.
