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.

(The following was taken from www.pointerview.com) First Lt. Salvatore S. Corma, a Class of 2008 graduate, died April 29 at Forward Operating Base Bullard, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit using improvised explosive devices.

Corma, 24, of Wenonah, N.J., was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.

Prior to attending West Point, Corma was captain of the winter track team and a member of the National Honor Society at the St. Augustine Preparatory School in Richland, N.J., where he graduated with honors in 2004. While at West Point, Corma competed in the 2005 Taekwondo National Championships. On the Directorate of Cadet Activities Web site, he posted the following testimonial:

“Throughout my time here at West Point, my participation on the Marital Arts team has influenced me more than anything else I have experienced at West Point thus far. In competing and training with the team, I constantly learn more about myself every day. Through my experiences on the team, I have truly learned to embody the warrior ethos that is preached to cadets and Soldiers every day. It is times such as this that people truly learn what they are made of.”

Following his graduation from West Point, Corma reported for duty at Fort Bragg, N.C., and deployed in October to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

His awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, the National Defense Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the NATO Medal, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Basic Parachutist’s Badge and the Ranger Tab.
