That's listening. That's a veteran or currently serving. Thank you for your service. But I also want to specifically thank our two that are here with us today. And skip ahead. You do this before? But I think it'd be really important for people to know where you serve when you went into the army how long you served them. That's the same thing. Okay. West Point graduate. I graduated one thousand nine hundred seventy two so I was commissioned an armor for nineteen seventy two I went through initial schooling at Fort Knox, Kentucky and Fort Benning, Georgia. My first tour was in Korea. And I served to tourists and career one is simple. Tune leader one is a Taliban commander. Inbetween? I was served at Fort Hood, Texas, and the First Cavalry Division. I went to the defense language institute to study German and went to a graduate schooling. And of the university of Zurich in Switzerland. I taught at West Point for a tour three years in the history department. I went to the command general staff college at Fort Leavenworth. And then I went over to a tank battalion and Germany where I was the battalion operations officer, and then the executive officer and ultimately my career ended. I was in Pentagon. I served for three years as the NATO desk officer in the office of the deputy chief of operations and plans on the army staff. Well, and then my final year I served as a strategist for the office of the secretary of defense and Colonel Smith. Yes, sir. I was commissioned in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven as a chaplain candidate. And then the next year commissioned as a chaplain first Lieutenant retired after twenty six years as a full Colonel. I. During the break. I joined the army and saw the world stationed in Korea and Germany fort Lewis, Washington, fort sill, Oklahoma, fort Monmouth, New Jersey, Fort McPherson in Atlanta for Carson Colorado on the headquarters department of the army staff at the Pentagon for a time. And then I finished up my MAC to service those twenty six years as the senior ranking Chapman, the Dover air force base honoring those who were killed in action in Iraq, and Afghanistan and other missions and also meeting with all of those families this deal with the Bladensburg cross is especially close to my heart. Jay because my first year at the Pentagon when I was assigned there, they had redone the casualty notification policy in in a number of years since the first Gulf war, and I was the project officer, and we totally redid the program of how we notify parents, and husbands and wives and other family members when their soldier or sailor or airman or marine has been killed and we spent a year. A year redoing how we tell families that their loved one is now dead that they pay the Altemus sacrifice. And so this Bladensburg cross issue and issues like that. I find very very offensive because I have been up close and personal with people who've lost their service member. And it's just a travesty that this person and the American humanist have come up with this. I thought it was really rich that the person who's a part of this lawsuit said that they run their errands. They felt excluded. By this cross the emphasis on say felt excluded. This cross is not about them. It's not supposed to make them feel included is about one hundred and sixty thousand men who died in war one, especially those from Prince George's county. The American Unisys. Go ahead. Was very important is that this was a local monument for the boys. Many would call the boys or admitted who sacrificed some who'd never returned home. But it was on me to all who served. Not just for those who who died though, it subsidizes Kelly had said earlier broadcast. It was like a gravestone see that way expanded as we expanded Arbor stay to encompass Veterans Day. But I think it's so rich that here we are celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One. And we're fighting out still at courts of the United States for a memorial. Nearly as old as the World War One itself. It's ninety three years old. And it's because someone just doesn't like it feels excluded. It was not a monument built in twenty sixteen. Let's say for all veterans. This was a monument built back right after the World War what? So nearly one hundred years ago for the Prince George's county, specifically the blades Berg area about. Forty or sub odd. Bidded boys who served it world, some who'd ever return, and it was to them. They're primarily Christian. This was not controversial it was odd private property at the time, and it was through eminent domain and other actions later that it causes to even be part of the government property, but this is part of our history at heritage. And his west said, everything is not to make us feel included. Some things are for specific the veterans the Vietnam war world, not religious in nature. But it's not to make me feel included. It's too. It's for the veterans of the war and those who passed away in the Vietnam. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's their families. It's not for all of us. So we can all acknowledge their sacrifice, but it's not for everyone. That's why we have so many different memorials at body. But it's all over our nation's capital as Kelly said in cities across the country. There are these memorials the gold star families for doing I'm going to take apart. If you're going to take apart every star David every cross every crescent moon crescent and star. That's put up as a memorial somewhere, you know, because of an offended observer, you'd be removing the history of the United States. I mean, it's just that's just.

I was in the Pentagon I served for three years as the NATO desk officer in the office of the deputy chief of staff of operations of plans on the army staff. Well, and then my final year I served as a strategist for the office of the secretary of defense and Colonel Smith. Yes, sir. I was commissioned in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven as a chaplain candidate. And then the next year commissioned as a chaplain first Lieutenant retired after twenty six years as a full Colonel. I mentioned during the break I joined the army and saw the world stationed in Korea and Germany fort Lewis, Washington, fort sill, Oklahoma, fort Monmouth, New Jersey, Fort McPherson in Atlanta, fort Carson, Colorado on the headquarters department of the army staff at the Pentagon for a time. And then I finished up my MAC to service those twenty six years as the senior ranking Chapman, the Dover air force base honoring those who were killed in action in Iraq, and Afghanistan and other missions and also meeting with all of those families this deal with the Bladensburg cross is especially close to my heart. Jay because my first year at the Pentagon when I was assigned there, they had not redone the casualty notification policy in a number of years since the first Gulf war, and I was the project officer, and we totally redid the program of how we notify parents, and husbands and wives and other family members when their soldier or sailor or airman or marine has. Been killed and we spent a year redoing how we tell families that their loved one is now dead that they pay the ultimate sacrifice. And so this Bladensburg cross issue issues like that. I find very very offensive because I have I've been up close and personal with people who've lost their service member. And it's just a travesty that this person and the American humanist have come up with this. I thought it was really rich that the person who's a part of this lawsuit said that as they run their errands. They felt excluded. By this cross the emphasis felt excluded. This cross is not about them. It's not supposed to make them feel included is about one hundred and sixty thousand men who died in war one, especially those from Prince George's county. The American miss says go ahead. Was very important is that this was a local monument for the boys. Many would call the boys or admitted who sacrificed some who never returned home. But it was on me to all who served not just for those who who died though at subsets is Kelly had said earlier broadcasts. It was like a gravestone see that way expanded as we expanded RBIs to stay to encompass Veterans Day. But I think it's so rich that here we are celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One. And we're finding out still at courts to the states for a memorial. Nearly as old as the World War One itself. It's ninety three years old. And it's because someone just doesn't like as feels excluded. It was not a monument built in twenty sixteen. Let's say for all veterans. This was a monument built back right after the World War what? So nearly one hundred years ago for the Prince George's county, specifically the Bladensburg area. So about forty or sub odd bidded boys who served in world what some who'd never returned. And it was to them. They're primarily Christian. This was not controversial it was odd private property at the time. And it was through beta other actions later that causes to even be part of the government property, but this is part of our history at heritage. And his west said, everything is not to make us feel included. Some things are for specific the veterans the Vietnam war world dot religious in nature. But it's not to make me feel included. It's too. It's for the veterans of the Vietnam war and those who passed away in the Vietnam war. Yeah. Their families. It's not for all of us. We can all acknowledge their sacrifice, but it's not for everyone. That's why we have so bitty different memorials at body. But it's all over our nation's capital as Kelly said in cities across the country. There are these kind of immortals the gold star families are gonna take apart. If you're going to take apart every star David every cross every crescent moon crescent and star. That's put up as a memorial somewhere because of an offended observer, you'd be moving the history of the United States. I mean, it's just that's just what it is go to Arlington to try that. Let's go ahead and take phone call one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten let's take a call. If these colored from North Carolina on line one, Anthony, welcome to Jay, you'll live. Bless yo each and every warning bell brother, Jay and brother, Jordan, Colonel Smith and everybody else, you know, it's a day after Veterans Day. I just got the going through Chick-fil-A and give me a free Chick-fil-A sandwich for you know, because she was not open, but I would just like to really commend Joe. And what you're doing for this situation because? You know across is a very important part of a person's why that's for God, the father earned the down across parts. And you know, I I would just like to like I said committing commend Joe very much in what you're doing. You know officer in the air force from eighty one eighty four did four years in the United States Air Force in you know, I was in air support. And I just find it very interesting that people were trying to do this. I mean, it's like you're trying to take away what has been instituted for many many many years one hundred years here, and what's interesting about this one again, Anthony, thanks for your service to I'm gonna go to skip ash on this really quickly skip. I mean, the cross has been deemed we put this in briefs before is a symbol of sacrifice. Absolutely. And the cross is mean does have religious against. But it was not used in this case for that purpose. It was used in this case as a sign of remembrance and respect for the sacrifice made by those men who those forty nine men from that county. Their family. So they had a place to go. Remember that most of the the dead and wounded of these wars are buried overseas. They haven't been brought to the states. So unless you can go over and visit the gray very often. You have a local symbol a local cross or some other memorial that you can go to to remember your loved one. And I think that's significant all across the country in virtually every town they had these memorials now, I think that's you're absolutely correct. All right. We're taking a break. Remember, there's another thirty minutes of the broadcast discovered a Facebook jaysekulow or also on periscope. You can watch it or ACL, J dot org course, multiple television platforms as well. All right. We'll take your calls, and.
