Making this applicable to Marines—active, discharged, retired, reserve, etc,—gives the word “chickensh!t” a whole new meaning!!!!!

TOM HENNESSY: Time to let prisoner, a WWII POW, go home to die

Prisoner Richard Keech, shown during his 1997 trial, should be allowed to go home to die with his family. (Press-Telegram file photo)

Nearing his 90th birthday, Richard Keech is confined to a medical unit at the High Desert State Prison in Susanville.

His family says he stays alive on Ensure, a nutritional drink, and on weekly letters sent from Long Beach by his wife, Kay. Prison staffers read the letters to her husband, whose sight is failing.

The 1997 trial of Keech made area headlines. A prisoner-of-war during World War II, the one-time Marine defended the murder of his son-in-law, calling it a consequence of post-traumatic stress syndrome brought on by his incarceration in a Japanese prison camp.

“My father is in prison because he killed my abusive husband to protect my son, my mother, and me,” his daughter Nancy said in a recent advertisement she ran in the Press-Telegram.

With the family trying for a compassionate discharge that would give their patriarch a brief stay at home, the ad sought letters of support from readers.

Re “Taps for Master Gunnery Sergeant John Marjanov, USMC”

I continue to receive, since 2002 now, e-mail from Marines who claim to have known the MGySgt; that he had been awarded the VC and others; that this is not so, etc.–in any event, I have never seen any confirmation or denial, official, semi-official regarding any of the above–if anyone has some good solid information on this I would like to be informed.

Some of you folks who have been on my e-mail list and/or who have browsed my websites since about 1998 will recognize the name of Richard Keech. But most of you will not know of him.

DID JESUS GIVE US THE NAME OF THE ANTICHRIST?

You will want to ponder this one from beginning to end. See the evidence for yourself – right out of the Hebrew Dictionary and the Word of God. BARAQ=lightning in Hebrew BAMAH=the heights in Hebrew Jesus said – I saw Satan fall as lightning (Baraq) from the heavens or heights (Bamah). IT is plain and simple. Probably just a coincidence – but INDISPUTABLE as to the word associations.


So – the film was created. Sorry if you are an obamamaniac or a bible ignoramous, but there it is. Just an interesting word association. The film does NOT proclaim that BHO “IS” the AC

Not “Old Corps,” but I had the honor of bumping elbows with some of them.

In some cases, some text is provided together with links to the source; but generally I have not attempted to directly support remarks and/or pictoral representations with direct links, as I would very much like to do. Why? Well, the Internet is not forever, and it has been my observation and experience that attempting to provide URLs/links to up-to-date websites is fruitless. To be sure, there are many really great websites out there--but they come and go as with the wind--here today, and gone tomorrow. For further information beyond what is found here, I recommend that the interested viewer simply use Google, and/or another search engine, to find those current sites to obtain information in addition to what is available here. From the book, Marine Corps Book Of Lists, Nofi, 1997... NINE NOTABLE PLACES WHERE MARINES HAVE RAISED OLD GLORY! 1.Fortress Derna, North Africa, 24 April, 1805 2.
