About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Spc. Russell S. Hercules Jr, R.I.P.

Name: Army Spc. Russell S. Hercules Jr.

Died: October 01, 2009

(The following is taken from, Gov. Steve Beshear recognized the sacrifice of a Fort Campbell soldier who died while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

According to the Department of Defense, Spc. Russell S. Hercules Jr., 22, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., died Oct. 1, 2009 in Wardak Province, Afghanistan of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit using small arms fire. He was assigned to the Pathfinder Company, 4th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Ky.

He is the first 159th CAB soldier to be killed in combat since the brigade deployed last December.

A native of Murfreesboro, he is survived by his wife and son, Victoria and Christopher; stepdaughter Candence; mother and stepfather, Cheryl and Denver Tipton, also of Murfreesboro; and father, Russell Hercules Sr. of Winchester. His son, Christopher, was born in July, while Spc. Hercules was home on leave.

Hercules was a 2006 graduate of Blackman High School. "We're just devastated," Blackman Principal Gail Vick told The Tennessean. "We just found out about it around 4 p.m. (Friday). We're proud of what he did for his country. "As the Blackman family, we're deeply saddened, and our hearts go out to his family and friends." Players, fans and others held a moment of silence for Hercules prior to Friday night's football game.

Gov. Beshear will order that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on the day of Spc. Hercules's interment for which arrangements are still pending.
