Chuck Mawhinney, The Deadliest Sniper In The History Of The Marine Corps


When it comes to Marine Snipers in Vietnam two names will forever be remembered: Carlos ‘White Feather’ Hathcock and Charles Benjamin Mawhinney.

“It’s All Gone Down the Drain”

100-year-old WWII vet cries, says America today ‘not what they died for’


I watched the Rumble video clip in the link above about half a dozen times and each time I did I realized something.

If MY Generation of Veterans feels BETRAYED, the Iraq and Afghanistan War Vets, Imagine how this man’s Generation FEELS!

The WW2 Generation, the Generation that really put it all on the Line for America and the World!

My God, It’s Heartbreaking Folks.

In Memoriam: Cpl. Hershel “Woody” Williams, USMC

Iwo Jima hero and last surviving WWII Medal of Honor recipient, Hershel “Woody” Williams, dies at 98


If you have not watched the story of this AMAZING WW2 Marine, a Marine whom I personally put right up there with Lt. General Chesty Puller, Maj. General Smedley Butler and GySgt. Carlos “White Feather” Hatchock, I highly recommend you do.

Rest Easy and Semper Fi Woody.

Using The Garrote – The USMC Way

Using The Garrote – The USMC Way


A garrote is not a bad improvised weapon to have stuck back in your arsenal seeing that you are willing to put in the time for the training.

Making a wire garrote is easy.

Some Piano wire, two large wooden or metal dowels wrapped with grip tape and some kind of leather bracelet for protection and you are in business.

Prepare and Train Accordingly.
