March 26, 2010
Jamie picks up where we left off yesterday in Don Wassall’s Intelligence Report portion of his monthly The Nationalist Times for March 2010. Don writes of the brave resistance of Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski against the misuse and abuse of the U.S. soldier by Neocons who have hijacked the American military. This leads us to the story of someone who preceded Lt. Col. Kwiatkowski in this kind of valor, and this is Col. David Hackworth, who died in 2005. In a remarkable “About Face”, the title of one of his books, Col. Hackworth twice turned down an assignment to the Army War College and a near-certain appointment to General because of his disgust with what he saw as a corrupt officer corps, not worthy of the men they order to fight and die. With 90-some medals and decorations, having fought in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam as an infantryman..it was his Combat Infantryman Badge that Hackworth was most proud of, and wore on his civilian suit for the rest of his life. The CIB is awarded only to those who personally have faced enemy fire, and are at the rank of Colonel or below…not Generals.
