Here is more about Nick Popaditch, a really well made video biography, well worth taking a few minutes to watch. http://youtu.be/lJpcp9Ixxrg
Semper Fi, Gunny.
You're the kind of Marine I'd follow into the Gates of Hell, if that's where the enemy was!
This man deserves our support. Integrity, honor, morality, always faithful to God, family and Corp. He is running a tough campaign in San Diego against a very liberal incumbant opponent, I'd love to see her outed. Can I say this, Scoop?
Send money :o) http://www.popaditchforcongress.com/
He's running for Congress in San Diego? Isn't that lib land? They'll never tolerate a great American hero over a lunatic environmentalist....especially from the military.
Please watch this video...
Perhaps you can learn what a real leader looks like and sounds like.
Succinct, honest and to the point & without any BS and NO TELEPROMPTER!
And now...the rest of the story:
When it comes to the military I think McCain is a hero and a great supporter of our men in women in uniform. As a politician, though, i don't respect him....oustide of the military.
What are hecklers thinking? Do they think anyone's going to be impressed with their interruptions? Everyone is too busy thinking how stupid they are instead of hearing a single thing they are spitting out. It accomplishes nothing except making them look like asses.
Wonderful speech, Scoop. Thank you for posting.
It was heartwarming to see everyone stand out of respect and appreciation after his speech.
We have this outstanding Marine, and then we have the draft-dodger Mitt Romney looking mighty uncomfortable. *face palm*
This is why EVERYONE needs to do some time of service to his or her country, just as Israel does....no waivers.
God Bless those combat veterans (I was not one) and those who gave it all, for all of us.
Mitt Romney was NOT a draft-dodger. He was serving a mission for his church in France during the time he was first "of age" to be able to serve, but when he came home he registered for the draft, but was not drafted. Get your facts straight, and stop spewing things that aren't true!

Where do we find such men? Hopefully, we will never run out of them. In the dangerous world we live in, they are what stand between us and the darkest forces of tyranny. God bless them all.
Man, was that a good speech or what!
I wonder what Gunny thinks about his current commander in chief?
I think I know the answer.
There are so many people in our Military with those same convictions...those same grateful sentiments most of us feel for our Fallen Military members. Servicemen like Gunny Papaditch will defend their citizens and their Constitutional Republic until they are no more... and think nothing of it... They know their duty... As do so many of us. God Bless our Fallen... Bless our Living... and keep this great country in Your Good Graces...
I could listen to folks from our military speak all day, any day, unlike POTUS or Panetta. I turned off the TV each time either one was speaking today.
Bill Whittle did a great interview with a WWII vet discussing the battle of Tarawa "A Soldier's Story". Excellent, as usual from Bill. There is a disclosure at the start, warning of adult language, but I didn't find it offensive given the context.

Thank you for the link! Whittle is awesome.
I don't know if you have ever seen this one, but here is a great speech plus Q&A by him.
It is in three parts, I'll link the other two if anyone needs, but I don't want to spam links in a comment. Watch this one though, or bookmark it.
Not been on the site for a few days now (been a tad busy) but thought I'd just pop by and drop a note to say a quick thank you and show my respects for your fallen servicemen and women.
Some Europeans (sadly, not enough of us) have an appreciation of US valued support, not to mention leadership in past conflicts and recognise the sacrifices made by your servicemen for the benefit of our ancestors and their future generations.
From your friend from across the Atlantic.
Thank-you so much TRS for spending your day providing such awesome testimonials to our heroes. I would just bet everyone of those heroes would be grateful for your time spent honoring them.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf -George Orwell.
In the military, our troops learn sacrifice, committment, honor, integrity, unfailing teamwork, and love for God and country. Seems to me they are exactly what we need in America's cesspool of current politics.
Which is precisely why No Dictator will ever succeed in wresting control of our great Nation... Our Military will never allow it, one.. and two, the citizenry are never going to allow it... combine these two and any would-be Commie-crat will cease to exist in short order. These miscreants know this...and will forever fail in their quest to Socialize this country.
I love a man with conviction. Thanks Scoop, Gunny Popaditch didn't look uncomfortable at all making those comments.
