Congrats goes out to Staff Sergeant Peter Christian from the Washington Army National Guard. SSG is a long time friend of mine and wish him the best with his new rank and career in Public Affairs.

Retired Navy SEAL Senior Chief Don Shipley BUSTS James “Kimo” Akaka from Honolulu, Hawaii and Arthur Neil Obus from Montpelier, Ohio.
James has gained a celebrity following from his claims of being a Navy SEAL and he was not. Googling any part of his name with “Navy SEAL” brings up numerous links about him being a 17-year veteran Navy SEAL and he has reaped numerous rewards for something he never earned.
I expect Kimo will claim “lost paperwork” that proves he was a SEAL just like he did to KITV in Honolulu. Lost paperwork is just another lie Limo is using to cover his ass…
Medal of Honor Ceremony
President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to two Vietnam War soldiers, Army Command Sergeant Major Bennie Adkins and Army Specialist Four Donald Sloat. Specialist Sloat received the award posthumously for his actions while serving as a machine gunner. Dr. William Sloat accepted on his brother’s behalf. Sergeant Major was given the award for actions taken as an intelligence sergeant. The president in his remarks recounted their combat actions and heroics. He emphasized the importance of honoring Vietnam veterans for their sacrifices, saying they have not always gotten the thanks they deserve.
