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. Lance Cpl. Derek Hernandez

Marine Lance Cpl. Derek Hernandez
Died June 06, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

20, of Edinburg, Texas; assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.; died June 6 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. Also killed were Sgt. Brandon C. Bury and Cpl. Donald M. Marler.

(The following was taken from of June 15, 2010) PHARR - Dozens of mourners were in attendance as Marine Lance Cpl. Derek Hernandez was laid to rest.

The burial took place at the Palm Valley Cemetery in Pharr with full military honors. The 2008 Edinburg High School graduate died in Afghanistan while conducting combat operations on June 6.

The 20-year-old was the youngest of three siblings. Hernandez is the fifth Edinburg serviceman to die in the war on terror.

A community reception was held after the burial at the Edinburg Municipal Auditorium. Keyla Hernandez, the fallen Marine’s niece, recited the pledge of allegiance.

The Marine’s brother, Riley Hernandez, spoke. He asked other military families to never take their loved ones for granted.

The family thanked the community for the outpouring of support during difficult times. During the funeral procession, people who never met the lance corporal stood along the streets and watched the procession.

A group of sisters and cousins stood with U.S. flags in hand. The women told us they wanted to pay their respects to the Edinburg Marine and this was their chance to also thank Hernandez's family.

The women did not know Hernandez. But they tell us they were touched by his bravery and service
