Whatever the cost

21 Oct

Renn Bodecker is almost 91 years old.  He served in WWII as a paratrooper and aided in the release of prisoners held by the Japanese at Los Banos prison, in the Philippines. 



Last week he went to take down the barricades around the WWII Memorial, in Washington, DC.  This past weekend he was at the Alamo, for the Long Gun open carry event. He is a true Patriot.  He stands by the Constitution, and the Freedoms embodied within it.


As Renn said, when asked what advice he had for young people today, who see the freedoms he fought for slipping away:


                   “Make up their minds, I don’t care what the cost is, that they are going to take this

                    Country back, and bring it back under the Constitution. Whatever the cost.”


When he says that, I am sure that he means even if half of the people involved must perish.


Thanks go out to the Oathkeepers, and my friend up in DeKalb, for this one.

    I was just reading about this on the OK site, I’m glad you posted it here Soffitrat! This needs the widest possible dispersion it can get. Mr. Bodecker reminds me of a favorite saying of one of my First Sergeants….”MAKE IT HAPPEN, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.”

    Too many people have yet to understand the critical position we are all in and they are not willing to share bearing the cost of trying to restore our representative government anyway. Mr. Bodecker fully understands the threat and cost involved as he has been there and done that. I can not imagine what he must feel like today.

    May God bless these old Warriors.

      I agree, Danny. A few bloggers (keyboard warriors) really hate the OK’s for a number of reasons. Who wouldn’t appreciate this man? Those who wouldn’t, are the type that won’t last long anyway. Mr. Greenjeans (just N. of Houston) is one. Yet, anyone within 100 miles of that cesspool won’t last a month, no matter how prepared they ‘think’ they are. Yet, he is an OKHater.

        Frankly, we don’t need the type that “won’t last long anyway” Soffitrat! What would we do with a bunch of butt kissing quitters that constantly have their grubby hands out DEMANDING something for nothing? All these Kenyan followers are totally useless to a productive society. They were created (and bred more parasites like themselves) for the purpose of weighing down our government and help bring about our financial collapse. They are a boil on the butt of society brought about by all the programs that were created over the past 80 years to pass out U.S. TAXPAYER money for PERSONAL use of these inbreeding dimwits!

        The working, productive taxpayer STRUGGLES to pay bills, buy groceries, fuel, health/life insurance, etc yet MUST provide these same things with OUR money that is taken away from us under threat of force by a communist regime for these sorry ass slugs. Tell me what is wrong with that picture! Yet some knuckle dragging, mouth-breather with a 5th grade (government) education would be quick to inform you…”by God, ain’t nuttin wrong wit heppin poor folks”.


        It’s time to cut ’em off. they can go to work or starve to death on the roadside somewhere…sons of bitches…they are just breathing air that some decent human could be using.

        We both know someone (I’m giving no names here Soffitrat but you know who I speak of) that WORKS HER ASS OFF TO PROVIDE FOR HERSELF. Now THAT is a productive American Taxpayer that has paid her dues and I damn well admire her for her “get up and go”!

        Well I didn’t intend to go on such a rant Soffitrat, this is a touchy subject for me! And if I offended any of you needy brothers and sisters out there that fits in the classification listed in my third paragraph…screw ya’…and get over yourself.

          “Get over yourself” Right Danny! That’s the problem with many. Some are even preppers. Some even worked in a mess hall. I would have liked to have taken them on a short SOGgy trip, only to lose them once we got far enough out of the camp to where they couldn’t get back. Then spend the next hour watching them (from a distance) shit in their britches, and laughing my ass off the entire time!

          BTW, that Colonel (AF) that I told you about? The one who spent two Xmas’ ago with us? He isn’t doing well these days. To think that he flew in both Korea and Nam, and how he is now? It’s bothersome as hell. Perot let him in their group (POW) even though he was never shot down. That’s the kind of man he is. A few of his men were shot down though.

    Soffitrat I forget the figures that I read a while back but we are losing these patriotic old Warriors from WWII at a horrendous rate on a daily basis. Most of our Warriors of the “Forgotten War” (Korean War) are now well into their eighties and the Vietnam War Veterans are closely following.

    It infuriates me that so many have lived to see communism and tyranny settle in a country they love and have sacrificed so much for. But their actions in the District of Communism recently has demonstrated they still possess the fighting spirit!

    It appears to me they have even inspired others to wake up and follow them.

      He was a fighter pilot in both wars. A great man, even if I always believed pilots to be crazy men. Had one friend who was in SR and who was MIA for almost two weeks, pulling one out of the North. They finally popped out on a beach, where squid was being dried out on a string. They feasted! He confirmed what I believed when he told me that pilot was whistling out loud during the extraction! Believe me. This one is NOT a fan of the Kenyan, either. Most vets, as you know, are not. Nobody who is half intelligent or a true American, is. We are losing more and more every day. From Virginia, to South Carolina and Georgia, to Texas. From the Revolution, to the War of Northern Aggression, to the Spanish-American, to WWII, to Vietnam, my family has always contributed. Thank God, I had daughters!
