American idol

So here is my idea, you get a few thousand people together (voluntarily) and audition to participate in your organization/event. The you put them through tough evaluations and harsh situations under pressure and judge them every way through the ordeal.

I mean really these could feel like life and death situations in even foreign countries.  We would probably have younger people come out to join us but you never know as their judgment and courage will be tested regardless of age.

We then could narrow down our selection, you know the ones who close with and destroy the enemy and then put them on TV and have America vote for their favorites (as if they had a clue what our members were really doing) and we could recognize our elite award ceremonies in front of millions Americans on TV. Man that would make a great show let’s say Tuesday nights, once a week.

But who the hell am I kidding, our kids rather see some two bit tree hugger be their “idol” rather than the good Ole days when kids would play and say “Im the Duke”. Now they aren’t chasing bad guys or fighting villains, they are playing like they are singing and wearing ear rings….cogh , puke.

I know who the real American Idols are, do you?

Semper …time for a stoag

Bradstream, and infantryman, and Janda, a medic, both serve with C. Troop, 6th Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division. The troop was patrolling the area to search for caves and enemy passages on the mountain, from which they had been receiving enemy contact.

  1. I’m glad I taught my children different. They know who the real heroes are (LEO, FF, Military, Medics…)
    Please be safe and thank you so very much for your service.

  2. Yes, I know who the real American Idols are. That’s why I do what I do to serve those who serve. There’s not a doubt in my mind they’re/you’re it.
    But I’m still going to enjoy the damn TV show though. LOL.

  3. Tv is irrelevant. Oprah, Martha, CNN, morning shows, evening shows, Survivor, Desperate Whoevers— irrelevant. I watched the movie “Network”— check it out. Chilling and prophetic.
