Why? Because...

Inside content at The Patrol Base as always. Here is a clip of the Government questioning LTC Stuart Scheller in jail... 


The Good and Honorable LTC will be free, sooner or later. He is just the tip of the iceberg...

The hard will survive. 

Be hard. Hard is being adaptive due to necessity because of limited resources. Adaptability is survivability. Get rid of your vices now. Learn to live with less now. Learn to live with pain. If you do these things now you will adapt better when the times are really hard. Further, you will gain eternity and your children will inherit a just world. Every generation must fight this and America quit many decades ago. Like the spirit of Jacob Marley once stated, our price is a steep indeed...

                     "I wear the chain I forged in life," replied the Ghost. "I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free-will, and of my own free-will I wore it. Is its pattern strange to you?"

Scrooge trembled more and more.

"Or would you know," pursued the Ghost, "the weight and length of the strong coil you bear yourself? It was full as heavy and as long as this, seven Christmas-eves ago. You have laboured on it since. It is a ponderous chain!"

Scrooge glanced about him on the floor, in the expectation of finding himself surrounded by some fifty or sixty fathoms of iron cable, but he could see nothing.

"Jacob!" he said imploringly. "Old Jacob Marley, tell me more! Speak comfort to me, Jacob!" 

"I have none to give," the Ghost replied.

But there is always hope, as Ebenezer learned. And as we always said in the infantry, "Keep moving forward!".  

Raptor 2, out.


  1. Wow. So no shit I was telling my kid tonight; shower or eat but keep it moving forward. Then I sit down and just happen to click this story of all the articles from

    Ha! Nice.

  2. Prior to being dropped off in the Uwharrie for 7 fun filled days of living like a troll w nothing but L1 kit, a scrawny chicken, and a magnesium bar secreted keep that dakota fire going, SFC Jackson, a crusty Ranger told us to: "Always be improving your position."
    My uncle who is an exceptional golfer gave me sage advice too, always advance the ball..
    I have taken these sage words to heart and they have become my personal and business philosophy..
    Inch by inch, like BAT21...
    All the Way!

  3. Been buyin' and eatin'stale bread from the Bakery Outlet Store here for decades. It's called "critter bread" you're supposed to feed to birds and such. It's .10/loaf and stale. Makes your gums and teeth happy.

    Coffee? Anything left over in the pots at work, I collect. Stuff is like road tar patch. I drink it down. Ice cold. Hardens off the gut and belly.

    Clothes? Goodwill Store is your friend. Warm and dry.

    Hands and feet so callused I take my filet knife and scrape 'em true.

    My rifle (and only one) clean as a hound's tooth, zeroed in on the red dot AND IR laser.

    Hard times? Depression, recession, good times--all the same to me. I don't expect much--other than "LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE!"

  4. THERE won't be many surviviors,maybe a few hundred,be on high ground,that'll help,other then that its in the LORDS hands.I hope you know him,and he knows you,other wise you won't survive...
