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.

R.I.P. Sgt. 1st. Class Michael P. Shannon

Army Sgt. 1st Class Michael P. Shannon

52, of Canadensis, Pa.; assigned to Headquarters, 7th Army and U.S. Army Europe, Heidelberg, Germany; died Jan. 17 in Kabul, Afghanistan, of a heart attack.

(Taken from of Jan. 21, 2010) CANADENSIS - Sgt. 1st Class Michael P. Shannon would keep a straight face while telling a joke, his family says, and it often took a moment to realize he was kidding.

Though he had a healthy sense of humor, Shannon was serious about the Army.

"He was a soldier through and through," said his wife, Donna. "The Army was his life. The only thing equal to the Army in his life was his family."

Shannon, of Canadensis, suffered a fatal heart attack Sunday while serving in Afghanistan. He was 52.

The New York City native first enlisted in 1977. He earned a bachelor's degree at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, then a master's in criminal justice at Long Island University in Brookville, N.Y.

He met his wife while working as a corrections officer in New York. He retired in 2001 as an assistant deputy warden.

"His attitude was, we're all going die some way," Donna Shannon said. "No one has a master plan to avoid it, so don't use it as an excuse to not do your part for your country and your family. That's the kind of man he was."

He had three children, Rhea, 21, Michel'le, 18, and George, 9. He is also survived by his mother, Lorena Shannon.
