Doug: The Worlds Largest Army

This just in……………..


True story.

Here’s an interesting side bar. After the Japanese attacked our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they started.

The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River . Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships…all fighting the Germans. So, why did they not invade?

After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer…they know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them. The world’s largest army… America ‘s hunters! I had never thought about this…. A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin . Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world. More men under arms than in Iran . More than in France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed. AND That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan ‘s 700,000 hunters, All of whom have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that The hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

The point? America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.

Hunting — it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. Hunting is a matter of national security. *************************************************

That’s why all enemies, Foreign and Domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Food for thought when we consider gun control.


The Soldier’s Cross


A veteran – whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve – is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America’, for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

    The Definition of a Veteran from Doug’s post above was, I thought, written by Robert A. Heinlein. But I have been web-searching and find it used in many different blogs and forums attributed to Unknown or Anonymous. Perhaps Bob wrote it down after seeing it somewhere else. If so, then that makes it over fifty years old.
    I’ll keep looking.
