Two weekends ago Wyatt and I decided to ride to the bluffs for the breathtaking scenery. On our way back the horses were excited and knew the trailer was parked close. Like most horses, the gelding I was riding “Chocolate”, was ready to run from the excitement of almost being back to the trailer. Chocolate, being a competitive horse, did not like the fact of Wyatt and Modelo being ahead, I figured why not run and catch up. I let him go and like always he started sprinting up towards Wyatt. As we started approaching them I realized there was a fallen mesquite tree so I began asking Chocolate to slow down.. that wasn’t going to happen. He grabbed the bit and wanted to keep going. I turned him last minute and ended up dumping myself over his shoulder. At this point Chocolate had no place to turn because he was boxed in by the trees. He was still hot and ready to go so he spun around, which lead to him stepping all over me. Luckily, I only came out with a fractured nose. This could have been much worse but I strongly believe God was watching over me. Accidents happen and they are apart of riding horses. Extra precautions can be taken to prevent accidents such as this and I solely blame myself for not thinking through all the possibilities. On a lighter note, the swelling in my nose has gone down tremendously! Although, I will possibly be having surgery in the near future to fix some breathing problems. 🤷🏼‍♀️

▪️Name: James Earl Rudder
▪️Age: 1910-1970
▪️Country: United States
▪️Branch: United States Army ▪️Rank: Lieutenant Colonel
——————————————
I) From early age on Rudder had always been interested in agriculture and industrial design. In 1932 he graduated at Texas A&M with a degree in industrial education and started a career as teacher at different colleges in Texas. Simultaneously with receiving his university degree in 1932, Rudder was added to the United States Army Reserve as Second Lieutenant.
🔻
II) Rudder was called into active military duty in 1941 and was tasked with the selection and training of the 2nd Ranger battalion, a fairly new battalion that was created in 1943 along with the 5th Ranger battalion. In the hot climate of Tennessee, Rudder disciplined his men and prepared them for the difficult task that would wait for them on the other side of the Atlantic sea. In September 1943 both battalions were shipped to Great Britain in preparation of Operation Overlord. 🔻
III) Overlooking the English Channel and coast of Normandy lies the 30 meter high cliff Pointe du Hoc. As part of the Atlantic Wall fortifications, the prominent cliff top location was fortified by the Germans and housed six 155mm howitzers guns. Situated between the two American landing zones Utah and Omaha, The allied high command realized that this strongpoint had to be taken quickly to make the D-Day landings a success. It was Rudder and 225 of his rangers who were instructed to take the point. 🔻
IV) Climbing up the cliff with ladders and ropes, the rangers managed to capture the point, with Rudder personally leading the assault. The six German heavy guns were later found further inland and destroyed. For two days the Rangers were isolated from the main allied force and had to defend the point against German counterattacks, reducing the initial force to 90 fighting men with Rudder himself being wounded twice. Eventually reinforcements arrived, relieving the depleted rangers. Rudder went on to fight in the Battle of the Bulge, and after the war continued his successful academic and later also political career. #war #officer #army #ww2 #battle #history #military

  • Me to Me
.
This weekend was a true test of what's to come. Diet changed Friday night, Saturday was my daughter's bday with a whole day of being out of the house, and Sunday was Easter which meant a feast!
.
The old me would have taken this weekend and celebrated, eating whatever came my way, drinking beers on beers... But not this time
.
This time I used my discipline, and hit my numbers! Did it suck? Only in the moment but this morning I feel amazing and I know that the suck is just helping me get ready for the end goal!
.
Win the Day!

  • Shayetet 13 is a unit of the Israeli Navy and one of the primary sayeret (reconnaissance) units of the Israel Defense Forces. Shayetet 13 specializes in sea-to-land incursions, counter-terrorism, sabotage, maritime intelligencegathering, maritime hostage rescue, and boarding. The unit is trained for sea, air and land actions. The unit has taken part in almost all of Israel's major wars, as well as other actions.
.
.
.
.
Unit's Motto: "As the bat emerges from the darkness, As the blade cuts through with silence, As the grenade smashes in rage." In addition the unit also referred to as "people of Silence".
.
.
.
The unit is respected as among the best of the world’s special forces, and is compared to the US Navy SEALs and Britain's Special Boat Service. Unlike many other Israeli Special Forces Units which take men only for their 36-month mandatory service, volunteers for Shayetet 13 must agree to service at least four and a half years (18 months over and above the normal commitment).
.
.
.
In recent years, it was discovered that Shayetet 13 veterans had a high occurrence of cancer, possibly due to training in the polluted Kishon River. A commission for investigating the matter did not find statistical evidence that diving in the Kishon caused cancer; however, Minister of Defense Shaul Mofaz decided to compensate the families of the divers despite the findings of the commission.

  • It appears that the only thing constant in the world is a sense of extremes? Most of which are expected to normalize to a middle of the road condition after some form of resolution. The notion of your supposed opinion suggesting that you identify with one or the other in the expectation of everyday speech. Yet the underlying fundamental extreme that you cannot ever hope to be part of never appears to budge?

  • Last week I had the honor of serving as the keynote speaker for the Whiteman AFB Spouses’ Club Scholarship Dinner & Awards ceremony.  As an advisor to the WSC Board, I have a front row seat to the tireless efforts by a handful of spouses to benefit our base and surrounding community.  Like many similar Air Force spouses’ clubs, WSC exists to build connections between spouses and invest in our community. •
Today’s emphasis on digital community often praises the benefits of remaining connected across geographic distance.  Too often those discussions overlook the increasing challenges of discovering and cultivating community in our own front (and back) yard.  Don’t misunderstand – I love staying in touch with my besties in Virginia.  In a moment of motherhood panic, I take great solace in texting my very first Mom friends from Louisiana who are now in DC, MT, and GA.  But without community in this time and space, I’m lost in a screen, remembering yesterday and dreaming of tomorrow. •
Enjoying today requires not only my presence but also my participation.

I believe one of the greatest ways we can participate in our military community is to join an organization dedicated to making the here and now better, together. •
But on too many bases, spouses’ clubs are dying.  On too many bases, young spouses don’t know why they should participate or join their spouses’ clubs.  It’s an important conversation no one seems to be willing to have, but if we lose the clubs, we lose the benefits they offer. •
To that end, I’m sharing here a portion of my remarks from the WSC Scholarship Dinner & Awards Ceremony last week. (*I’ve changed names to protect privacy.) Please refrain from commenting with criticism of spouses’ clubs.  I’m well aware of the challenges and in another article, I’ll probably share my thoughts. But these remarks were geared toward reminding us WHY we invest our blood sweat and tears into an imperfect organization full of imperfect people – it’s because together, we make life better for other people just like us. {Read my remarks online - link in my profile}
