Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger arrived in Vietnam in August 1965. By the following spring, the 21 year old Pararescueman took part in nearly 300 missions. On April 11, 1966, when a group of US Army soldiers was in trouble, "Pits" went in to help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He rode a hoist 100 feet down to the jungle floor. As they continued fighting off the surrounding enemy, Pitsenbarger treated the wounded and organized medevacs. One by one, he loaded 9 casualties onto a hoist to be lifted into a chopper. One of the medevac birds was hit and forced to leave for an emergency landing. Pitsenbarger remained on the ground to continue his aid. A large enemy force attempted to overrun their position as another chopper made a rescue attempt. Pitsenbarger again remained on the ground to help fight off the Viet Cong. He was wounded 3 times in the ensuing battle, but remained near-omnipresent on scene, treating the wounded, pulling them to safety, and distributing ammo. The Americans took horrible casualties as darkness overwhelmed the area. Rescue could not come again until the following day. That night, Pitsenbarger was hit again, and mortally wounded. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For his incredible heroism and unselfishness, Pitsenbarger was posthumously awarded the Air Force Cross. He was the first enlisted recipient of the medal. In 2000, 34 years after the action, his medal was upgraded to the Medal of Honor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #battlesightzero#bzo#history#military#militaryhistory#veteran#veterans#america#airforce#usairforce#vietnamwar#pararescue#pj#medalofhonor#moh#pararescuemen
(repost - October 22) • @sidneyydaviss It’s okay to not be okay. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. . Today I want to talk to you all about why I’ve been gone. Today I will be talking about my mental health. I’m going to open up about a lot. So if you care to hear, stop scrolling & start reading. . Hopeless. It’s what I felt for a while, but that emotion poured over me last week to the point I couldnt control it. I felt empty, overwhelmed by everything in life, lost, weak, scared, unwanted, & wondering where I went...where the self I KNEW had gone to. I felt actual physical pain. I had an outburst of everything I’ve kept locked inside for months and suffered from alone. This photo is from that day. Broken, puffy-eyed me. I left ALS & went straight to the chaplain. That day I also made the incredibly hard & scary decision to take that a step further & seek REAL help. . I want to stress to all Airmen reading this how important knowing your resources & USING them are. They don’t exist to be ignored. They exist to purely help us climb & overcome some of the most difficult mountains in our lives. The military (& my job specifically) has a disgusting stigma that seeking mental health help will rip our careers away from us & makes us appear weak. That showing any type of emotion makes us weak. Well I say 🖕🏼THAT. I AM HUMAN. I AM ALLOWED TO FEEL. I WILL FEEL. And I’m DAMNNN strong for still showing up to serve & protect while carrying this weight. . So the truth here is I am not okay. I haven’t been for a while. I’m beyond thankful for the person that was there that day to show me compassion, empathy, & support in all of this. Im thankful for those of you in my corner reminding me that I can pull through this. I had no idea what to do/where to go from there. I had hit my bottom...the lowest I have EVER been. The good thing? I’ll never feel that again. I won’t let myself. I am seeking help through military resources. I’ve finally
Controversial, I know. It’s my responsibility to make it clear what the product is, and it’s the consumer’s responsibility to do his/her own due diligence to understand what it is they’re purchasing. If I can gladly hold up my end of the deal, why can’t they? . This happens every time Combat Flags gets positive coverage. People rush, don’t read, have unrealistic and unfounded expectations and then feel it’s ok to send expletive filled emails, messages and comments. . I then share the facts, point back to the product page of the item they ordered to reshare the facts, point them to what they thought they ordered and gladly offer a refund in return for the product being returned to me. Sounds reasonable, right? . ...and then more expletive emails/messages/comments get slung my way. . Not gonna lie, I don’t get it. As a consumer myself, I always take the extra 2 minutes to read about what I’m spending my money on and if I do make a mistake I own it. . Granted, this happens maybe a handful of times a year, but it’s always disappointing. ・・・ www.combatflags.com ・・・ #combatflags#freedomon#veteran#veteranowned#army#usarmy#marines#usmarinecorps#airforce#usairforce#navy#usnavy#patriot#threepercenter#oldglory#redwhiteblue#oif#oef#getsome#thinblueline#thinredline

Finding the best workout split can be really confusing but let’s simplify it a bit. The science says that typically what works best is squatting 2x, benching 2-3x, and deadlifting 1x a week. We know there are people who do more but this is the consensus for what the literature shows. Here are some considerations, the stronger you are the less frequency and volume you’ll be able to recover from. The higher intensity you push the less volume and frequency you’ll be able to recover from. The more volume and less intensity you do probably just means you don’t train hard enough. As you can see there is a inverse correlation to things the harder you train and the stronger you get the less volume you can recover from, being able to recover from your workouts is the only thing that matters. An example would be if you want to squat twice a week and you train hard and are strong you may only do 1 top set on Monday and 2 top sets on Thursday/Friday of compound movements. This is only 3 working sets but trust me that’s all you need. The more frequency will allow you to push each session a little harder as well, that’s why frequency is important. It’s not there to just add in junk volume and extra days for the sake of it. With all that being said adjust your program to your recoverability but try to get more frequency in so you can train each session hard. @strength_union @teamphoenixperformance @subjectzero_supps @elitefts @ritual__apparel

Specialist Thomas Barbieri and his fellow soldiers were ambushed by two insurgents hidden inside a building. Barbieri ignored their fire and assaulted their position with his SAW, killing one of the enemy before being mortally wounded. His actions enabled the rest of the soldiers to avoid injury and kill the second attacker. For his heroic initiative and dedication, Barbieri was posthumously awarded the Silver Star. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "...serving as a Gunner with the 1st Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2d Brigade, 82d Airborne Division, as part of the Joint Task Force in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM on 23 August 2006. SPC Barbieri assaulted heavily armed enemy combatants who were occupying a strong ambush position with dominating fields of fire. Utilizing his squad automatic weapon, he conducted a daring assault on the flank of the enemy force, exposing himself in full view of the enemy in order to bring his weapon to bear and prevent enemy fire on his Platoon Sergeant and the rest of his platoon located in the ambush kill zone. He killed one enemy combatant and made possible the destruction of the second, but only at the cost of his own life." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #battlesightzero#bzo#history#military#militaryhistory#veteran#veterans#america#army#usarmy#soldier#airborne#silverstar#oif#operationiraqifreedom#82ndairborne
One of the final living Battle Of Britain pilots dies aged 101. Flight Lieutenant Maurice Moundson was one of 3,000 men, known as The Few, who defended the country during the historic fight between the Royal Airforce and the Luftwaffe in 1940. Mr Moundson was honoured for his service on his 100th birthday last September, when the Red Arrows performed a flyover off the coast of the Spanish island of Menorca. Following the death of Maurice Moundson, there are only three members of The Few still alive. #wwii#war#pilot#raf#veteran
(repost) • @kmarie.d “What can I do for you?” Something I often hear myself say when someone approaches me. Being a sergeant literally translates from the Latin servient—to serve. - I love the military. Mainly, I love helping the troops (and deploying). I try to give back what I wish I had coming up (I’m sure a few who remember Amn Delgado are taken aback 😅). - Fun fact— Over half my career, I’ve been called Momma D and any of my troops know that there are two things that keep me awake at night: my kid (biological) and my kids (troops). I’ll do anything for them (but I’ll also get in that 🍑 they step outta line). - What do you love about the military?
