With light snow and temperatures in the teens, cadets at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, stand in formation as part of the football pregame ceremony. I was intrigued by the "coldness" of the image, the repetition of the cadets and their attire, and they mystery of "who are these people and what are they doing? what are they a part of?"

I would like to congratulate the seven district high school and college students that have been selected to attend a Military Academy this year. Four will be attending the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY and three will be enrolling at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. I commend these bright and dedicated young individuals for answering their country’s call to service!
Today is Armed Forces Day, and while I personally think about and thank all the men and women that have, are, or will serve everyday, I will take the time now to publicly thank everyone, family, friends and people I will never meet for their selfless service and dedication to these United States of America. Above all, I put my greatest thanks in my Dad, John Marley, for his 21 years of service and dedication to the Army and this country- from being out in the field all the time, to deployments, to teaching ROTC, to switching from being field artillery guy with cool red socks to working for the Air Force in Colorado Springs... thank you for everything, and hopefully one day I can follow in your footsteps. Love you, Padre!

In the dorms at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, cadets have white boards attached to the outside of their doors for notices and personal messages. One cadet wrote a Bible verse on his and, naturally, someone found this 'offensive'. Actually, 29 cadets and 4 faculty and staff (26 of whom claimed to be Christian) complained. The verse was removed. In a revolt, cadets began writing verses from the Bible and the Quran on their boards. The president of the Military Religious Freedom Board has threatened to sue the Air Force if this isnt stopped (go figure). This, along with calls to remove crosses at roadside and military memorials, seems to be an ever increasing demand from athiests and politically correct Christians(?). You can dismiss these actions but, I would remind you that, just like liberals, enviromentalists, and *** activists, there is no such thing as 'enough'. There is no point when, having their requests satisfied, they stop demanding more. I remember a rehab facility when I was in Abil ...

Colorado Springs Gazette - mentions Austin Flues Air Force basketball recruit Matt Mooney out, at least for season, with broken fibula By Brent Briggeman Published: June 26, 2013 | 8:50 pm • 0 Matt Mooney was supposed to arrive in Colorado Springs this week and begin basic training with the incoming freshman class Thursday. Instead, the 6-foot-2 basketball player was headed for surgery Wednesday to repair a broken fibula with his future at the academy very much in doubt. Because the injury, suffered while riding a bicycle with his brother, will prevent Mooney from completing basic training he has been disqualified from entering the academy year. Mooney, a combo guard and an accomplished shooter, was one of just two freshmen expected to join the Falcons basketball team directly out of high school this year. Others will join via the prep school, but only Mooney and forward Austin Flues were set to join directly. Air Force coaches cannot publicly comment on players until they have officially entered the sc ...
If you are in any way considering donating to help those affected by the Black Forest Fire please read the following. This is an email I received from my veterinarian's office yesterday. Dr. Liz Harriger has been practicing at Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic for the last 10 years. We were all saddened to hear her home was a total loss last week in the Black Forest Fire. She was in Colorado Springs and attempted to go in to remove her personal valuables. The fire grew so quickly that her home was already under a complete evacuation. She was not allowed in. Fortunately her dogs, Opal and Seger, were safe at work. Dr. Harriger's family originally purchased this home when her father was in the Air Force. There are many years of memories in this home. Several people have expressed an interest in providing some kind of assistance as she is making a new start. We have opened a "For Benefit Of" account at Bank of the West for her. Checks should be made to "Carolyn Bowman FBO Liz Harriger". You can take ...

Someone sent this to me and I had to share... No Words Anyone who knows me knows that I am seldom at a loss for words; be they the cadets I taught at the Air Force Academy, veterans who have attended my classes on job searching, or my friends at the Back East Bar who have been dumb enough to disrespect the Dallas Cowboys. All that changed on Sunday, 1 July 2012. As most of you know, my family and I were evacuated from our home in the Mountain Shadows area of Colorado Springs due to the Waldo Canyon wildfires. We left on Saturday and moved into a hotel downtown. On Tuesday the fire crested the hill across the street from our home. Over the next few hours it devastated our neighborhood totally destroying 347 homes. I was able to verify on Wednesday morning, via binoculars, that our home was still standing but five of my immediate neighbors were not so lucky. On Sunday, 1 July, I was able to go back to my home for a few hours to *** damage, etc. As I drove up Flying W Ranch Road everything looked no .. ...
FUNDRAISER-IN-CHIEF’: OBAMA REPORTEDLY BEGS DONORS FOR MORE MONEY ABOARD Air Force One The Daily Beast is making news after obtaining a number of tapes in which the president reportedly pleaded with donors for more money sounding, according to the Daily Beast, “weary” and “a tad worried.” Described as a “rambling conference call” from Air Force One, the president allegedly spoke for 18 minutes about how Democrats are in danger of being outspent, in danger of losing Congress, and even in danger of losing the presidency. The Daily Beast writes: “The majority [of people] on this call maxed out to my campaign last time. I really need you to do the same this time,” the president said in a highly unusual (and presumably legal) fundraising pitch from Air Force One on his way back to Washington from Colorado Springs, where he’d been assessing the terrible damage caused by uncontained wildfires. A special phone on the government aircraft is dedicated to political calls that are paid for by the ...
Pres. Obama was in Colorado Springs today to survey the damage caused by the fires. He actually walked through the fire damaged area's and talked to some of the firemen there-Pres.

Multiple Walmarts across the country have been victim to bomb threats in recent days. The Waldo Canyon Fire, near Colorado Springs, has burned more than 18,500 acres of land, forcing the evacuation of at least 32,000 people and threatening more than 20,000 structures in the area, including many homes of military families. Four C-130 aircraft equipped with U.S. Forest Service Modular Airborne Fire Fighting Systems (MAFFS) have so far flown 47 sorties dropping more than 100,000 gallons of fire retardant. Acting under immediate response authorities, the Army has provided bulldozers, other heavy equipment and hundreds of soldiers to cut fire breaks. Twenty two fire trucks from five military bases, including the academy, have joined the effort. Military personnel are providing housing, meals and medical care at temporary shelters on Peterson Air Force Base and Fort Carson.
Dear Colorado, I am praying for you. When i was a kid I took many trips to Colorado to visit your beautiful rolling hills and beautiful mountain tops. One year we were promised a trip to Florida but that fell through at the last minute. We went to Colorado Springs that summer instead with my parents, grandparents, and my two sisters. We went to Waldo Canyon that summer and visited the Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods. That place is amazing. We also have went to Manitu Springs, and Durango and Silverton, and even chased the train on the Million Dollar Highway. There is much more to list To my Family in Colorado I Love You and Thank You for te GREAT adventures and tours of Colorado
Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) will be joining President Obama aboard Air Force One as he flies to Colorado Springs on Friday, June 29 to visit the Waldo Canyon Fire site and meet with firefighters.
Was just looking at some updates for the Waldo Canyon Fire. Looks like 346 homes have been destroyed so far. The "Flying W" ranch has burned to the ground. All access to Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, and Air Force Academy is halted. Still more than 30,000 folks evacuated in and around Colorado Springs...
Brilliant, USA Today just said that there was a "fire at the edge of the Air Force Academy, in Boulder, and threatening Colorado Springs." Dolts. Boulder is 85 miles away from Colorado Springs. The Air Force Academy is on Colorado Spring's north side, being threatened by the same fire that threatens the city and environs. Hire some freakin' copy editors, will ya?
Many of you have asked about the Waldo Canyon Fire near and in Colorado Springs. The fire has consumed 18,500 acres up to date. It did not spread much yesterday but did spread into the Air Force Academy a little and the Air Force is taking care of that along with non-military firefighters. We have over 2000 firefighters combating this fire. They have literally been in a war with this fire and as the news people are saying that this fire is of epic proportions.
Colorado wildfires: Several fires explode across Front Range; Air Force Academy evacuated (news reported on June 27) An apocalyptic plume of smoke covered Colorado's second-largest city (Colorado Springs) as thousands of people forced to evacuate clogged Interstate June 23 article: GOP lawmaker claim Air Force is 'hostile toward religion' The 66 lawmakers said the changes can be traced back to a memo last year from Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz that said chaplains, “not commanders,” are expected to notify airmen of chaplains’ religious programs. The lawmakers said this suggested “that the mere mention of these programs is impermissible” and that combined with the other incidents, goes “beyond the requirements of the Constitution.” “The changes lend credence to the notion that the Air Force will remove any reference to God or faith that an outside organization brings to its attention,” they wrote. Among the incidents: A decision to remove a Latin reference to "God" from a ...
The Waldo Canyon wildfire burns near Colorado Springs, June 26, 2012. (Gaylon Wampler/AP) A fast-moving wildfire near Colorado Springs forced as many as 32,000 residents to be evacuated on Tuesday, as the blaze—fueled by 65 mph winds—jumped a perimeter set by firefighters trying desperately to contain it. [How to help: Donate to the American Red Cross Colorado] The Waldo Canyon Fire—which was first spotted Saturday near Pikes Peak—doubled in size overnight to more than 24 square miles, according to the Associated Press. The blaze has destroyed an unknown number of homes, caused roads to be closed and shut down part of the U.S. Air Force Academy. About 2,100 residents of the academy's campus were told to evacuate on Tuesday. No deaths or injuries have been reported. Fire officials said the fire was just 5 percent contained, and dry, searing triple-digit heat in Colorado was not helping.

Asking you all to remember to pray for Colorado. I LOVE Colorado, especially Colorado Springs where I got saved in 1974 and which is on fire right now, with thousands being evacuated. Tons of Christian authors and ministries are located in and around the Springs. The famous Flying W Ranch has already been lost and several other landmarks are in danger. Even the Air Force Academy has been evacuated! My brother and sister-in-law live there, plus several friends. Please pray that the fires will be contained with no loss of life and no more loss of property!
Off to work this morning but wanted to update the fire situation here in Colorado. The Waldo Canyon Fire is dangerously close to the city of Colorado Springs. There is a preevacuation order for parts of the Air Force Academy. Also, many of you know of the castle Glen Eyrie owned by the Navigators. Well it is in the burn area also. No news on whether or not is Ok but .The fire near us is still burning as well and a new fire erupted (lightning caused) yesterday south of Boulder and it is 0% contained. Please continue to pray for rain, relief rom the heat, the firefighters, the people who have lost their homes, and the people who are possibly in harms way.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes around Colorado Springs, Colo. as the Waldo Canyon Fire consumed more than 5,000 acres, the Denver Post reported. High winds and 100-plus-degree temperatures have worked against firefighters.

The High Park fire, the one near Fort Collins is 65 percent contained. The firefighters made great strides today in spite of gusts of up to 45 mph and record high temperatures. The bad news is a fire burning down south has set northwest Colorado Springs on fire. 32,000 people have been evacuated. The wind shifted and . in just seven hours the fire burned all the way to I-25 with at least 1700 homes threatened and the Air Force Academy shut down. I think they are using its air strip as a staging area for air support. I believe there is at least one C-130, a humongous airplane full of water, on this fire. Good luck down there, this fire might be worse than High Park. I hope everybody stays alive. This fire looks very bad.
Manitou Springs safe for now as high winds forcing fire to the north. I'm fine in my home for now, but packed to flee if we get another evacuation notice. The Northwest side of Colorado Springs ablaze, homes burning, 32,000 people evacuated. Even the south part of the Air Force Academy is evacuating. More hot, dry, windy weather in forecast.
This is from my brother David Edwards. His children and their mother and her family live right where all this is happening. PLEASE EVERYONE, pray that they get control of this fire and pray for the fireman. My grandson Tanner is one of those fire fighters, pray they will be safe and our Lord will shine upon them to get this fire out. David Edwards This is the worst thing ever to happen to Colorado Springs. The devastation on the internet video feed is incredible! The fire is close to where I used to live near the border of Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs near Garden of the ))Gods ...park (I don't know if my former residence has burned or not?). The "Flying W Ranch," sadly, was lost. That was a great place to take one's family the past 60 years. Now, it's gone. Also, they are evacuating Air Force housing at the US Air Force Academy. This is now been designated the "Number 1" fire in the United States--ironic, in light of the National Firemens' Memorial is located in Colorado Springs. Here are the vide ...
There is a fire very close to Colorado Springs, they have evacuated some of the homes from Garden of the Gods toward the Air Force Academy and also Manitou Springs. It is sort of scary, but my house is all the way across the city. Also it was 100 degrees here yesterday. Thought I was back in Las Vegas.
Laura and I had a great time today and yesterday celebrating our 8th anniversary in Colorado Springs. Air Force chapel, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City and a sweet chocolate shop in downtown Springs: great time of R&R. Grateful to Laura's mom for watching our chillins and absolutely blessed to be married to a godly, supportive and fun wife. Looking forward to however long God gives us together sweetie: I love you!

I love living in Colorado Springs at this time of year. Air Force Academy graduation - Thunderbirds practicing for the big day tomorrow - breathtaking! Their flight pattern goes right over and over and over our house. It's really fun to see people come out of all the stores and office buildings to see the "Birds." The show will be really great tomorrow and I have a beautiful view from school - Thunderbirds, Air Force Academy and Pikes Peak - WOW!
