Another long week over in the world of recruiting. I called out some Dinwiddie H.S. football players to P.T. after they told me in a class talk that there is no way I’m tougher than Coach Mills. Needless to say they didn’t show for P.T. but 3 of their fellow classmates showed up thursday… I went a little extra rough in the wet mud and up and down hills…

You want to move slow, go GET UP! GET DOWN! GET UP! 4 of our poolees literally passed out from having the heart to stay in it up and down the hills all day. The new kids quit and I sent them to sit out. One guy had said he wants to be a Navy Seal. Good luck with that. I don’t think they will be coming back to P.T. anytime soon with the MARINES. I just wanted them to carry the message back to Dinwiddie that I don’t F around!

I ran a 280 Combat Fitness Test on jello legs the next day.

Don’t drink the Water!

No, I’m not talking about vitamin water again.

See Flouride below my workout for more…

I got back into the garage gym yesterday with Ring dips, Ring Pushups, DL’s and a new thing that I am trying to work on my handstand with called Handstand runs (See here for more on these),then did some cardio on a bike later. I’m feeling better and trying to get into a good rhythm and descent shape before the school in Cali

Flouride is put into water systems in the U.K., India and U.S.A. among others to “make our teeth healthier”

– Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.

– Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).

– USAF Major George R. Jordan testified before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s that in his post as U.S.-Soviet liaison officer, the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.”

– The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany’s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride’s supposed effect on children’s teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: “The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben” by Joseph Borkin.)

– 97% of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water due to the known health risks, however 10% of Britons drink it and the UK government is trying to fast track the fluoridation of the entire country’s water supply.

– In Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg fluoridation of water was rejected because it was classified as compulsive medication against the subject’s will and therefore violated fundamental human rights.

– In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) advised that parents should avoid giving babies fluoridated water.

– Sources of fluoride include: fluoride dental products, fluoride pesticides, fluoridated pharmaceuticals, processed foods made with fluoridated water, and tea.

Memorial Day: Remember Desmond T. Doss

Desmond T. Doss

Honor those who have fallen for the freedoms we enjoy.

Today I have not posted a story of a KIA. I decided to post the story of Desmond T. Doss, an eccentric Army medic who was told by his C.O. and many from his company to stay away from them in battle since he wouldn’t carry a rifle or gun for religious reasons. This was after they tried to kick him out of the military for being “unstable” and an unfit soldier. Before the end of the battle of Okinawa he would save that same man’s life along with 75 others and he was the man they wanted to see alongside them.

One promised Doss, and not in jest, that when the soldiers faced the inevitable combat with the enemy, “I’ll kill you myself.”  Doss didn’t doubt him.  That first taste of combat came at Guam, where Doss began to prove his courage in going to any length to treat and care for his fellow soldiers.  Then came Leyte.

Time after time at Leyte Doss braved enemy fire to go to the wounded, and to remove them to safety.  Once he darted into the open to treat and rescue a wounded man even while the area was alive with sniper fire.   From a distance his fellow soldiers watched in horror as a Japanese sniper leveled his rifle at the fearless medic.  Because of the sniper’s position they could not return fire for fear of injuring some of their own.  Doss treated the wounded man, evacuated him to the rear, and returned to his position.  One of the sergeants told him, “Doss, we expected to see you killed any second.  We couldn’t shoot the sniper without killing our own men, and he had his machine gun aimed right at you.   Didn’t you see him?”

(Years later a missionary in Japan related the story of Doss’ brush with death that day.  After the service a Japanese man in the back of the room told one of the deacons, “That could very well have been me.  I was there, and I remember having a soldier in my gun site, but I couldn’t pull the trigger.”)  Doss not only survived Leyte, for his repeated heroism he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.  So as Corporal Doss stood before the men of Company B at the base of the Maeda Escarpment on Okinawa, they were beginning to believe in the prayers of the medic whose only weapon was his Bible.
