Do not mess with this Medal of Honor soldier… Issues ominous warning to enemies of America…

Medal of Honor recipient warns enemies

 

“If you want war with the United States of America, there’s one thing I can promise you, so help me God, someone else will raise your sons and daughters.”

 


 

While being inducted into the Pentagon’s Hall of Heroes, new Medal of Honor recipient Army Staff Sgt. David Bellavia issued a warning to anyone who might want to go toe-to-toe with the U.S.

 

“They may be watching this right now,” Bellavia said. “Our military should not be mistaken for a cable news gabfest show. We don’t care what you look like. We don’t care who your voted for, who you worship, what you worship, who you love. It doesn’t matter if your dad left you millions when he died or if you knew who your father was.”

 

“We have been honed into a machine of lethal moving parts that you would be wise to avoid if you know what’s good for you,” he said.

 

The Battle of Fallujah veteran said the U.S. does not want war because the military has seen the horrific consequences of it, but “if you want war with the United States of America, there’s one thing I can promise you, so help me God, someone else will raise your sons and daughters.”

 

President Trump presented Bellavia with the Medal of Honor on Tuesday for almost single-handedly clearing a house of insurgents during the Battle of Fallujah in 2004. While he was attached to A Company, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, Bellavia went into the house after the insurgents ambushed his unit, killing some in hand-to-hand combat.

 

Bellavia was originally awarded with the Silver Star for his actions. He is the first living Medal of Honor recipient who fought in the Iraq War.

The Taliban and ISIS need to be destroyed.

The Democrats need to be destroyed. They are doing as much damage to this country as Islamacists. In fact, they are importing them to take over from within.

It’s not “communism”. It’s Democratic Autism.

Best regards to SSG Bellavia.

One of my oldest clients, at 93, has been with me for 25 years. He’s a highly successful commercial real estate guy here in Chicago and somebody I thought I knew pretty well. I was at his home recently to do some work and noticed a couple of photos where he was a grand marshal in some parade, all decked out in his Marine Class A’s.

Out of curiosity, I asked him when he served. Turns out he lied about his age (16) to get into the Corps. He was in the second wave on Iwo Jima, and got two silver stars, two purple hearts and a messed up knee for his trouble. He was reluctant to talk about it in detail, but he did comment that things were so brutal they didn’t take prisoners.

Remember where your head was at when you were 16 years old. This was a 16 year old kid. Me, I was worrying about getting my driver’s license and “working on mysteries without any clue” at that age. He’s pretty frail and gets around with a walker these days, so it never occurred to me that he was a Marine in one of the worst battles in the Pacific. My hat’s off to him.

It’s worth mentioning with July 4th approaching that many of us forget how much these guys have done for us. We shouldn’t.

The greatness of his generation has blessed this country for going on 70+ years now. I have always been into military history and appreciated what these brave people endured for the betterment of our country and people. It pains me to see where we as a country are now. I feel people have forgotten why they have the quality of life they have. Please tell your client, some of us are forever grateful and will never forget him and will make sure our children do not as well.

Nice post, bobdog.

My late father might have been there, Navy Corpsman, embedded with the Marines. Never learned the specifics of which Pacific campaigns he was involved with, even from his friends. Just that he was there for multiple amphibious landings on different islands. His ship was torpedoed. Not sure if it was an amphib or transport. He carried a USMC k-bar knife, but no gun. Never hunted again after he returned. Went to war at 17, looking like 13, returned from war at age 19, looked like he was 30. Very collected, compassionate medical man, became a pharmacist after the war, but I think I inherited his temper. (That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking by it.)

I’m old enough that WWII history was “recent” to me while growing up. 9/11 happened almost 20 years ago. By comparison, WWII had ended, and I was learning about it, just 20 years after the event. The war was still fresh in the minds of my dad and uncle’s. When they said that they didn’t want to discuss it, ya never questioned why, you just “knew” to leave them in peace.

Every time I read a book or see a (decent) movie about the war, it just gives me pause, a moment to appreciate how the world looked to these kids who went to war in the early 1940’s. It’s made me appreciate the kids who volunteered and went to war for America after 9/11, even more. While such military volunteers were the national norm in WWII, They were a rarity, and some were even mocked for it, during the Iraq/Afghanistan campaigns. Their sacrifices (both WWII & the past 18 years) makes my own service seem trite by comparison.

I agree with your comments. My dad was a WWII Navy man as well. Survived but badly injured at Pearl Harbor, then back in action only to be injured two more times. I so wish he had made me understand what his war time experience was like but he preferred not to talk about it so it died with him. I think about his experiences and those of others so often today when I listen to anarchists who are camouflaged while running for president. Are we destined to keep repeating our actions over and over again because we don’t pay attention to all that have gone before us, and why?

WW2 vets were a different race, a different human being.

What we have become, I shudder to think. We are being programmed to fail as a culture …. and we are succeeding magnificently at that.

Reddog

I have to disagree with you somewhat. Todays veterans are no different than those of WWII except that the present day warrior is generally older, a volunteer and far better trained than his predecessors. But they have the same drive, the same determination and courage and they fight for their country because they understand what is at stake if they don’t. Make no mistake, any country that goes to war with America today will lose and lose badly. They all know it. The ones who continue to make noise and rattle the saber do so for their own political reasons.

Charles
Charles

Today’s vets are different. They are raised from birth with propaganda, in a nation dedicated to non-stop war. If they had access to the facts, maybe they would not fighting for this regime at all?

Around 60,000 US troops died in Vietnam over the Gulf of Tonkin lie. Several million Vietnamese died. How many US troops and indigenous people died in the Gulf wars after the U.S. propaganda triggers (babies thrown out of incubators/WMD/9-11/etc)? How much never-ending war is enough?

Maybe it is that Americans just do not cater to the less fortunate getting screwed by the tyrants. Being a veteran of Vietnam, it was appalling to see those poor people in Vietnam get overtaken by Commie Bastards, just because they were able to do it, and finally did, with the likes of LBJ, a Democrat. We entered WWII for that same reason, thus Korea for the same reason, thus Vietnam and all the other wars. Take Iran’s threat to Israel is another case of it. There are men still in this country, THAT ARE among a bunch of self interested wussies that do not care but for themselves, and I am certainly not one of them. You, that think like Charles, are certainly welcome to leave, if you are too weak to participate in the ordeals that made this country the BEST IN THE WORLD. TAKE YOUR DAMN PICK, AND BE GONE. GOOD RIDDANCE. YOU KNOW WHO AND ACTUALLY WHAT YOU ARE.

No argument there, reddog. I respect them all.

It’s worth pointing out that nobody forces today’s troops to join. We no longer have the draft. These guys are stepping up voluntarily.

I second your comments. Way too many self absorbed people today in America, rushing around shopping for the new Lexus while never appreciating where their wealth and freedom to choose came from. Sadly, if people keep voting for nitwit liberals they will soon find themselves with no freedom, no wealth, and someone in government driving their Lexus.

The U.S. Federal Government, a private government, not the lawful American government, which Lincoln destroyed for the bankers, is responsible for every terrorist organization on the earth, and the military personnel are its mercenaries for the NWO. Pray for Christ’s return and the destruction of all evil regardless of race, color, or creed.

American citizens will do the same HERE IN AMERICA if muslims try it here. For now we may look passive but do not mistake passivity for weakness. Americans are getting pushed on all sides, frustration is building. Democrats and liberals are getting bolder but the day is coming. Antifa is getting bolder (actually radical arm of democrat party). But Antifa will get a whole lot more than they bargained for and likely sooner than later. They haven’t met real resistance yet. The muslims are watching in the wings, they always play their hand too soon. Proud of this man and my hat is off to him, thank you sir!

These backward inbreds want to see us dead because our fearless leaders are attacking their homes, families and way of life. If some superpower droned my parents, I don’t think it would be a stretch to say I’d probably want to see the superpower dead. Do you?

Until and unless we unwind US empire and worldwide atrocities, we will be subjected to asymmetrical warfare. That’s the nature of a violent criminal/victim relationship.

Thank You Sir! I was not in the military but I do have family that were Marines. My brother is a retired Marine like you. He served 3 tours in Vietnam. Two of my sisters were also Marines. They were all 3 in the Marines at the same time. There was a story about them in the paper sent out to Marines. I don’t remember the name of your paper. Was it called The Leather Neck? I was only 7 or 8 yrs old at the time and I could sing the Marine Hymn word by word. and I still can. 🙂 I probably got on a few peoples nerves singing that. I was proud as could be of them. I still am to this day and that was a long time ago. I support our military, all branches. But the Marines have a special place in my heart. I have a brother that served in the Army. Again, I Thank You for your service! 🙂

Well, that’s OK, Lulu. We’ve all got black sheep in the family. Can’t all be Marines (or Sailors). 😉

Actually, I “purple suited” quite a bit, i.e. served side by side with USAF/USMC/USA at times. All good men (plus a few women).

“insurgents” -> Military propaganda term for local populations defending their neighborhood and their country from invaders.

Would it shock you to know Americans will one day be holed up at their local 7-Eleven and be called the same in Mandarin?

This soldier is a hero among heroes. So if you’re looking for a fight just remember we five branches of our military full of heroes who feel the exact same way. They never want war but if your looking for one they will bring hell to your front door. Thank God for all of those who came before. Remember that when you’re cooking on the grill or relaxing in the pool with the kids it takes and has taken a lot of blood and sweat to keep it that way. Please say a prayer for them today as we celebrate the birth of the greatest country that has ever existed. It’s because of people like this that keep it that way. Thank you ladies and gentlemen for all that you have sacrificed.
