A Different Take on Remembering 9/11

We were trying to think of how to express what we think, which is of course what our handlers think…then we read what SFC (R) Schlitz wrote. SFC Schlitz is an example of stoicism and determination that dwarfs anything we’ve ever been forced to display, or could. He is a warrior poet, in the sense that he is able to express things that otherwise defy description. We’ll quote him here:

Today I won’t be posting what the World Trade Centers use to look like, What it looked like during the Attack, or even what the aftermath brought. I don’t need to. That day will be forever burned into my memory just like so many other Americans. Instead I will force myself to recall every minute of that horrible day. Where I was, who I was with, and what we were doing when we got the news and saw for ourselves on the TV. I will say a little prayer for those who where lost that day, I will say a little prayers for everyone who was changed that day, and I will say a little prayer for everyone we lost fighting since that day. But I won’t be Sad for I am a better person and American because of each of those lost lives. I won’t be Scared because I was one of the chosen ones to fight and face the enemies of our country and I’m here to talk about it. I will Remember and I will Never Forget the cost. I am a proud of my Brothers and Sisters in Arms, Police Officers, Firemen, EMT’s, First Responders, Volunteers, Supporters, and my fellow Countrymen because no matter where you are or what you do you’re still an American. God Bless each of you, God Bless our Deployed Service Members, and God Bless America.

Swingin' Dick

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
