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.

Air Force Staff Sgt. David C. Smith
Died June 09, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

26, of Eight Mile, Ala.; assigned to the 66th Rescue Squadron, Nellis Air Force Base, Nev.; died June 9, near FOB Jackson, Afghanistan, in a HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter crash. Also killed were Air Force Staff Sgt. Michael P. Flores, Air Force 1st Lt. Joel C. Gentz and Air Force Senior Airman Benjamin D. White.

(The following was taken from of June 21, 2010) MOBILE, Ala. -- Staff Sgt. David C. Smith was remembered at his funeral today as a "great person, airman and warrior" who had a "passion for saving lives."

The 26-year-old Satsuma High School graduate was killed June 9 in Afghanistan, along with three other airmen, after Taliban insurgents fired rockets at the helicopter he was in during a combat rescue mission.

Lt. Col. Tom Dorl, Smith's squadron commander, told mourners at Little Catholic Church that in all, Smith saved 130 people during combat missions. In one mission alone, he saved 40 people, Dorl said.

Following his eulogy, Dorl presented the Purple Heart to Smith's mother, Mildred Hardee of Eight Mile.

Dozens of Patriot Guard Riders on motorcyles lead the procession, which stretched for miles, to Mobile Memorial Gardens following the church service.

A dozen children at Little Flower stood at attention holding small American flags as the procession left the church.

Smith had been in the 66th Rescue Squadron based at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas.
