Gov Palin: U.N. Has Failed & Øbama Playing Catch-up With N Korea (Defense Sec'y Gates To Visit Alaska)

Friday, May 29, 2009 1 Response

Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Palin called on Øbama to take a firm stand against N Korea & defend the states and territories of the United States of America & American allies on the Korean peninsula.

This morning, N Korea launched its sixth short-range missile since Monday’s nuclear test. N Korea has also stated that it is no longer bound by the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War. Further, Øbama has proposed a $1.4 billion reduction of the Missile Defense Agency’s budget.

“The United Nations sanctions have failed to stop North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, & the Obama Administration cannot afford to be playing catch-up to an irrational dictator like Kim Jong-Il,” said The Governor. “Missile Defense Agency funding must be fully restored in the federal budget to guarantee our protective measures remain the best in the world. Fort Greely plays a crucial role in the nation’s security.”

Alaska is home to the largest ground-based mid-course defense missile shield in N America. Because of its geographical position & proximity to potential targets, Alaska plays a critical role in national security & in the defense of American allies.

Ground missile defense is the cornerstone of the Missile Defense Agency’s multi-layered architecture. It is designed to detect, track, discriminate, intercept & destroy long- & intermediate-range ballistic missiles during the mid-course phase of flight. The weapons system consists of land-, sea- & space-based sensors, command & control operations, & silo-based interceptors that are located at Vandenberg AFB, California & Fort Greely.

Defense Secretary Gates will visit Alaska Monday & Sen. Mark Begich will take him on a tour of the same missile defense site in Fort Greely that he has cut funding for. Lets hope Governor Palin provides Gates with & earful about his & the president's short-sightedness.

Governor Palin To Honor Veteran With Purple Heart

Friday, May 29, 2009 0 Responses

Anchorage, Alaska - The National Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Jeff Roy, and Governor Palin, will hold a press conference at 10:00 am on May 30, 2009 at Mt View VFW Post 10252 located at 3105 Mt View Drive, Anchorage.

The purpose is to launch an extraordinary expedition by America’s heroes to successfully summit 20,320 ft. Mt. Denali, the highest peak in North America, after more than a year of intensive preparations. Commander Roy will introduce the members of this team of wounded warriors who symbolize the strength of our Nation & those who defend it.

The ceremony will include, Governor Palin presenting a Purple Heart Medal to Wayne Stackhouse, an Anchorage resident, for wounds he received in Vietnam on 25 October 1967 when his unit came under attack by the Viet Cong. Stackhouse, who was assigned to Co C, 4th Bn., 23d Infantry Regiment of the 25th Infantry Division, was on an operation as an infantry radio mechanic near Chu Chi, Vietnam, when he was struck several times by shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade. After receiving medical treatment in Vietnam, he was medically evacuated to Japan & finally to Ft. Knox, Kentucky where he was ultimately discharged from the U.S. Army on 10 May 1968. At the time of his discharge, his military records did not reflect his receipt of the Purple Heart.

This Saturday, 40 years after being wounded on the battlefield, Wayne Stackhouse will finally receive his Purple Heart Medal. Governor Palin will pin the decoration on Stackhouse, while Commander Roy will also award him the Vietnam Service Medal with 2 bronze stars, another decoration he earned but never received.
