Wisconsin Guard aviation unit departs state for Middle East

“The deploying Soldiers will conduct medevac missions in the Middle East in support of Operations Inherent Resolve and Spartan Shield.”

Gov. Tony Evers:

“It is your service and sacrifice that helps ensure the freedoms and liberties we enjoy as Americans. It is you that helps ensure that the freedoms we all enjoy are secured and passed on to the next generation.

Gov. Evers,

While US troops were deployed to the Middle East, federal law was signed prohibiting the sale of tobacco products to adults age 18-20.

Can you help us to understand the militarized version of freedom here?


Maryland too:

Mayor Day tells us that sending Maryland National Guard troops to Africa is linked to keeping the people of Salisbury Maryland, and all Americans safe and free:

National Guard To Africa


The US should maintain strong and ready military forces.

In some cases, the US Armed Forces provide for our physical security. That’s as good as it gets.

In terms of American rights and freedoms- The Dept. of Defense has no more say than the Dept. of Agriculture.


Legal marijuana, concealed carry of handguns, semi automatic rifle sales, federal minimum drinking age, sports betting, voting rights, bump stock baninterracial marriage, gay marriage, tobacco sales, open container laws, etc.

None of these are linked in any way with The Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Troops, The Dept. of Defense or the outcome of military operations overseas.

As the decades of undeclared/unwon wars stack up (The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.) the greater the cultural urge to glorify people who do, or did time in uniform.

If there is an honest reason to send people away into decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas let’s hear all about it.

Just Be Honest.

Stop with the glorification of undeclared/unwon wars in distant lands.



Various states have recently sent National Guard troops to distant lands. Each one claims that military operations overseas are somehow linked to American rights and freedoms:

How did Rhode Island freedoms get over to the Middle East?

Maryland Freedoms Found In The Middle East?

West Virginia Freedom Found In The Middle East?

How did our freedom and liberties get over to Kosovo?


Soviet-Style Militarized Pageantry Update


How Do The Troops Defend The Constitution?

Not asking about the oath of enlistment. Asking about what happens after the oath has been taken.
