What Terrorism and Traitors Have Wrought

RIP Sgt. Eddie Jeffers


Sgt Jeffers was the author of the scathing essay Hope Rides Alone.

People like Cindy Sheehan are ignorant. Not just to this war, but to the results of their idiotic ramblings, or at least I hope they are. They don’t realize its effects on this war. In this war, there are no Geneva Conventions, no cease fires. Medics and Chaplains are not spared from the enemy’s brutality because it’s against the rules. I can only imagine the horrors a military Chaplain would experience at the hands of the enemy. The enemy slinks in the shadows and fights a coward’s war against us. It is effective though, as many men and women have died since the start of this war. And the memory of their service to America is tainted by the inconsiderate remarks on our nation’s news outlets. And every day, the enemy changes…only now, the enemy is becoming something new. The enemy is transitioning from the Muslim extremists to Americans. The enemy is becoming the very people whom we defend with our lives. And they do not realize it. But in denouncing our actions, denouncing our leaders, denouncing the war we live and fight, they are isolating the military from society…and they are becoming our enemy.

He knew what he was doing was right and good and on September 19, 2007 he died for our freedom.

    One has to wonder, Just when will the inevitable coup d’etat come? Early in Hilary’s regime?

    If any Commander in Chief could engender a broad mutiny, it would certainly be Hillary “Queeg” Clinton! At least the bedeviled Captain loved the Navy –GN

    There is wisdom and grace in the hearts and minds of those willing to see and wisdom and grace abounds in the thoughts of this young soldier. Sgt. Jeffers, gave us a gift of insight and his life I am profoundly humbled.
    To his family and friends, thank you just isn’t sufficiant a phrase… you are all in our hearts and prayers.
    Thank you Gunn Nut for sharing.

Tribes. "I am not a wolf. I have never harmed a person in my life. But I am not a sheep, either. I know these forces are out there, and wishing it were not so will not only not make them go away – it will rob me of my chance to kick their ass when they show up."
