About Me

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.

R.I.P. Lt. Col. Thomas P. Belkofer

Army Lt. Col. Thomas P. Belkofer
Died May 18, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

44, of Perrysburg, Ohio; assigned to Headquarters, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), Fort Drum, N.Y.; died May 18 in Kabul, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered in a suicide car bombing. Also killed were Col. John M. McHugh, Lt. Col. Paul R. Bartz, Staff Sgt. Richard J. Tieman and Spc. Joshua A. Tomlinson.

(The following was taken from of May 21, 2010) PERRYSBURG, OHIO -- It was only supposed to be a short training mission.

“In your heart of hearts even though you may have feared that something like this could happen, you believe that it won't happen,” said Sharon Belkofer, the mother of Army Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Belkofer, 44, who was killed in action this week in Afghanistan, after a suicide bomber attacked his convoy.

“You want to take it out on somebody, you're hurt, you cry, you're never going to see him again, but there's so much pride as well,” said Sharon.

As the middle child, Belkofer was a 1983 graduate of Rossford High School. He traveled a lot and attended several colleges, eventually finding his wife, Margo at ROTC. “For the good of the family and everything else she decided to cut short her career and back Tom in his,” said Don Belkofer, Thomas’ father.

The family settled down in Perrysburg Township, before moving to Fort Drum in New York, where Belkofer was stationed.

Margo and her two daughters are in the process of escorting the soldier’s body back to Northwest Ohio for funeral services, and then Belkofer will be laid to rest at a place fit only for heroes, Arlington National Cemetery.

“He deserves every bit of it; every bit of the recognition.”
