Army sergeant major to receive Medal of Honor for saving 75 hostages from ISIS

“An Army sergeant major will be awarded the Medal of Honor for his remarkable bravery during a 2015 mission to free hostages from the Islamic State group, The White House announced Thursday.

Sgt. Maj. Thomas P. Payne, 36, will receive the nation's highest award for battlefield heroism during a ceremony at The White House on Sept. 11, according to the announcement, which said Payne's "extraordinary heroism and selfless actions were key to liberating 75 hostages during a contested rescue mission that resulted in 20 enemy fighters killed in action."

Somewhere there is a picture of him rocking brown corcoran jump boots with the new uniform.

There is a short video attached.


He came out of the Ranger Regiment which is why he’s wearing that beret.

I know it's rough in some places..

I saw this today, if you can help or need help, the contact info is at the end. My girlfriend is in the medical field and the peak hasn’t reached there yet.

Within 18 hours of receiving a notice to deploy in support of American embassy attacks and a breach in Iraq, paratroopers at Fort Bragg were ready, officials said.

More than 650 paratroopers toted equipment in brisk weather during the early morning hours of New Year’s Day, to board C-17 aircraft headed to the U.S. Central Command area of operations as part as the Immediate Response Force.

A spokesman for the 82nd Airborne Division said paratroopers with the 2nd Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division were activated and deployed in response “to the increased threat levels against U.S. personnel and facilities.”

TEB this is why your buddies had to head back to Bragg. Weren’t they 504th dudes?

Antelope Island crash 29 OCT 1992

Hill Air Force Base, Utah -- (AF) -- An Air Force helicopter crashed into the Great Salt Lake during rough weather, killing 12 people, authorities said Friday. The only other person aboard was rescued from the water.
A storm, with snow at high elevations, hampered rescue efforts but all 12 bodies were recovered, said Hill Air Force Base spokesman Dave Kendziora. The MH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter was on a training mission when it went down Thursday night in northern Utah's inland sea, about 100 yards off the northern tip of Antelope Island and about 15 miles west of Hill Air Force Base.

Kendziora said crews in search helicopters spotted debris and bodies in deeper water northwest of the crash, apparently pushed there by high wind. They were recovered by crews in boats.
One survivor was pulled from the water and was in serious condition at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center with cuts on his right leg and over his left eye.
The helicopter was assigned to the 1st Special Operations Wing headquartered at Hurlburt Field at Eglin Air Force Base outside Pensacola, Fla., said George Grimes, spokesman for the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla.
It may have been stationed with squadrons elsewhere in Florida, he said.
The only squadron that flies the Pave Hawk is the 55th Special Operations Squadron at Eglin.
The helicopter was on a joint Army-Air Force exercise, and those aboard could have included Army personnel, Grimes said.

List Of Casualties:
COL. John Kenellay- 3/75 CDR
LTC. Ken W. Stauss - 1/75 CDR
1sg Harvey Moore - 3 Charlie PSG
Sgt. Blaine Mishak
Spc. Jeremy Bird

Air Commandos - Quiet Professionals
LTC. Ronald Pexiotto
CPT. Michael Nazionale
TSGT. Mark Scholl
SSG. Steven. W. Kelly
Sgt. Phillp Kesler
SGT. Mark G. Lee
Senior Airman. Derek Hughes

I read something once from one of the guys who was on the bird that didn’t crash. His friend had tried to get on his helicopter and he told them there wasn’t any room. His friend got on the other bird and he was killed when it crashed. He lives with that every day.

Not forgotten

MAJ Gabbards comment in the debate

She mentioned that a Democratic CNN commentator called her a Russian asset. I had to look it up and it’s true. I don’t agree with everything she does.

Accusing a military officer of being a traitor is a serious thing. It can trigger a CID / FBI investigation, hold a security clearance or promotion.

And frankly I think a lot of the people yelling “Russian agent” are just childish. I was glad to see Ms April Ryan pushing back.

Penn Kennedy Democrats group

I listened to a talk from Patrick Murphy. He’s a JAG from the 82nd and was a Congressman. He mentioned this group that he cofounded.

Is anyone familiar with it?

They are punks

And the right tags it on us because there are west coast towns who let them get away with it or condone their bullshit

Veteran Podcasts

I have to spend a lot of time in a car so I’ve just started using podcasts.

Hazard Ground is one that I listen to. No politics just stories of vets who now work with organizations that help other vets.
The vets come on and tell their story and then tell about the orgs they work with.

Any others that you guys listen to?

Dixie Chicks

While some NYC folks may make dumb fucking comments about southern democracts..
