Age and medical limits for Congress and a leadership crisis at the United States Military Academy

Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif is 84 years of age, she recently announced that she will run for reelection.  How old is too old to serve?

Should Congressmen be able to serve with conditions like Alzheimer disease?

The United States Military Academy at West Point has a crisis on its hand that has been on display recently, pictures of a 2LT wearing garb and showing signs about supporting  communism.

An incredible letter was written recently by a retired U.S Army Lieutenant Colonel, former West Point Cadet and current West Point Faculty member Robert M. Heffington that excoriates the leadership of the United States Military Academy.

A RANGER AT NORMANDY: Harris Holman

Rangers at Pointe du Hoc

Harris Holman was a SSG, squad leader, in the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment when they landed at Normandy.

His story is the story of an everyday hero, although he would certainly reject that tag.

Harris passed on December 7, 2002 in his hometown of Hatton, ND.
