  2. So, that’s what you’re listening to.

    What is Sal drinking?

    Well, you have to go here to find out.

    You two should get your heads together.

    CDR Sal adopts the proper tone when speaking of the Navy’s diversity attempts.Most notably in his Diversity Thursday (DIVTHU) updates. Which is to say, he has complete contempt.

    And we learn from his Fullbore Friday that:

    Exceptional Sailors doing exceptional things which they consider a normal part of their job.

    A senior enlisted SEAL will be the first sailor in a decade to receive the Medal of Honor, for a mission to rescue an American civilian hostage in Afghanistan in 2012, according to a Tuesday release from the White House.

    President Obama will present Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Edward Byers with the nation’s highest award for valor in a Feb. 29 ceremony at the White House, the release said.

    Much about the mission — and Byers’ role in it — remains secret. While the White House usually gives a much more detailed account of what a service member has done to be awarded the Medal of Honor, Byers commendation cites only “his courageous actions while serving as part of a team that rescued an American civilian being held hostage in Afghanistan, December 8-9, 2012.”

    Sometime after midnight on Dec. 9…

    I still have mixed feelings about the Navy establishing the Special Operator rating back in, I believe, 2005 or 2006. Yeah, I know, these guys were never conventional Gunner’s Mates or Boatswain’s Mates once they went SEAL. Which put them at a disadvantage when it came to passing the advancement exams. On the other hand it reinforced the fact they were in the fooookin’ Navy.

    Which is important, and I can elaborate on that if anyone so desires.

    The bottom line is, after going the long way around the barn, hats off to Senior Chief Byers. SEALs don’t get medals for nothing. They don’t get them because somebody gave them a good write-up. (cough, cough, John Kerry, cough, cough, Vietnam). I have confidence in very few things, but I know down to the bone Byers more than earned that MoH.

    And now I’ll go back to listening to my Oirish bagpipes.

  14. BREAKING NEWS: From Beyond teh grave John Phillip Cromwell admits he was only trying to hurt Hillary!

    Famed submarine skipper and Medal of Honor awardee speaks for the first time since he was killed to Hillary! campaign manager. And CBS was there!

    “Yeah, I was a complete dumb@$$,” says Cromwell who went down with his ship off of the Japanese safe space of Truk rather than see Eleanor Roosevelt become Preezy in 1943.

    “I fully and freely renounce my privilege” said the white guy who chose to die rather than endanger the information he had been entrusted with.

    “Hips don’t lie,” continued Cromwell, noting that you can see Hillary!’s broadening arse from space, like the Great Wall of China, and it has grown large enough to have its own zip code.

    And maybe a truck stop.

    And if it’s a truck stop, it’s American.

    So vote Hillary!

    “I clearly wasn’t thinking ahead,” says a chastened, dead Cromwell, speaking from the Marianas trench. “I was thinking Eleanor Roosevelt. How could I know that 60 years on we’d have Hillary! advised by Eleanor Roosevelt through the magic of the seance? That’s some cool s***.”

    Americas dead concur; vote for Hillary! It’s the Chicago way.
