General Steve Ritchie Describes the Rescue of Captain Roger Locher 23 Days After He was Shot Down Over North Vietnam. Watch and listen to this powerful video of General Steve Ritchie describing hearing Roger’s first radio call for help on day 22 and the incredible rescue mission that successfully returned Roger to his comrades and freedom. Steve Richie is the only USAF pilot ace of the Vietnam War. He was in the same squadron and four ship flight of F-4s as Roger Locher and Robert Lodge on May 10, 1972, the day the two o them were shot down too far inside North Vietnam to be rescued. Over 150 airplanes were dedicated to rescuing Rocher Locher on day 23. Listen carefully to the end of Ritchie’s speech when he talks about Americans who risk it all to save one man’s life and freedom and compare that to the abandonment of the four patriots who died in Benghazi because the U.S. did nothing to save them. See Roger Locher Talks about Getting Shot Down & Evading for 23 Days and Roger Locher Describes Shooting Down a MiG, Getting Shot Down by a MiG-19, Ejecting & Evading Capture on the Ground in North Vietnam for 23 Days.
General Ritchie concludes by saying:
We come to fully understand the effort to which we will go, the resources we will commit, the risks that we will take to rescue one crew member, one American, one ally. Isn’t it a very powerful statement about what kind of people we are? About the value that we place on life, on freedom and on the individual? . . . The real mission, yours and mine, business, government, civilian, military, is to protect and preserve an environment, a climate, a system, a way of life where people can be free.
I fought for you. This video reminds me of the best patriotic speech every given. It was General MacArthur’s farewell speech to the West Point corps of cadets on May 12, 1962. He said in part: “Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be Duty, Honor, Country. . . . You are the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense. . . . The long gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country.”
We Were Warned: Freedom to Chains, words of talk radio king Paul Harvey. In 1965, American radio host Paul Harvey gave an immense warning to the American people about the fate of the nation. This video is a short film about the the parallels between the warning Harvey gave over fifty years ago, and today with the socialist influences in government and society. Please watch this entire video and forward it to your friends.

Olympic Gold Medal Winner Learns She Has a Legless Sister. The shocking video revealing that Dominique Moceanu has a secret sister, one given up for adoption without Moceanu ever knowing when Dominique was six years old. Her name is Jennifer, and – even without legs – she became a power tumbler, volleyball player, and aerial performer. Amazing story. Dominique’s memoir, Off Balance, comes out in mid-June 2012.
I flew the F-4 Phantom supersonic fighter bomber for five years in the USAF. This video shows two F-4s making a formation take off. One of the things I loved about flying the F-4 was making formation take offs and landings. Nothing like being in one of four airplanes sitting side by side in finger tip formation on the ground at the end of the runway then watching from number 3 or 4 as 1 and 2 light their afterburners then release brakes and roll down the runway in a formation take off. Twenty seconds later 3 & 4 would light their burners and release brakes and do a formation take off then join 1 and 2 in the air in finger tip close formation with wing tips 3 – 5 feet apart.
This video of F-18s shows some of the things that I loved about flying the F-4 Phantom for five years such as flying through clouds, super low level flying, formation flying, dog fighting aka aerial combat, and formation take offs.
