Joe Biden and bullshit

Old senile Joe is the Democrats leading candidate right now. He does't let the truth get in the way of a good war story.

Re: 2020 second ever Stand Alone battalion reunion

Dan wrote on the 6-31st facebook site, truthfully, that I had bowed out of further assistance in producing Dan's proposed reunion. I actually was notified of the post when it was first written and saw it. However, for some strange reason I can no longer see that statement while Jerry White can see i...

Re: 2020 second ever Stand Alone battalion reunion

The emails went out....twice. Some of the ones I sent out were rejected because email controls rejected the 6thofthe31st.com address as suspected spam it seems.

Re: The Navy Seal trial

House arrest for three and half years at Columbus Georgia under house arrest. True ...to each his own...
