Sam Elliott pays his respects to true hero
behind 'We Were Soldiers'

Breitbart's Big Hollywood, by Dan Gagliasso

Original Article

Posted By:Hooverdog, 10/22/2012 7:46:59 AM

In 2002 actor Sam Elliot played Sgt. Major Basil Plumley in the brutal and affecting Vietnam War film "We Were Soldiers." Earlier this week, Elliott paid his respects to Sgt. Major Plumley who passed away at the age of 92. Based on the best-selling book by correspondent Joe Galloway and Lt. General Hal Moore. "We Were Soldiers Once … and Young" told the courageous story of the Ia Drang Valley fight in 1965; the first major battle between regular U.S. Army troops and North Vietnamese regulars in which more than 300 American soldiers lost their lives.

Comments:
FTA: “I’ve played many historic figures, but Sergeant Plumley wasn’t just a great man. He was there....”

“That’s the difference," he says. "I pretend to be, but Sergeant Plumley was real. He lived it.”

There is nothing in the world better than a fair and hardnosed Command Sergeant Major...I had one named Johnnie "Rock" Riley...when they go to heaven even St Peter makes way for them

As you read this short piece think of those two former Seals who tried to rescue our dead Libyan Ambassador...then skip over to our present commander in chief (lower case my choice!) and watch how he responds to others' life sacrifices on behalf of "honor, duty, and country" wherein you will see the very definition of "metrosexual" which is so important for those who hide behind "diversity" as a shield which every COWARD needs!

We are in deep caca as long as Obama-Mao and his ilk are in power. Heroes they are not, cowards is what they have been, are and always will be!

Sgt. Major Plumley was a man, an American, a warrior and as some would say, a REAL HERO!

"Custer was a Puss#."

The greatest line Sam Elliot ever uttered.

Sam Elliott is a good actor and a fine man.
SGM Plumley is a legend, plain and simple.
Men like him do not come by these parts that often. A national treasure. God rest his soul.

If you look up his photos from his days in Vietnam and compare what he looks like to... obama.

Not sure what Sam Elliott's politics are, but I'll take him over Russell Crowe any day. And he's still married to his wife and she is gorgeous.
That said, RIP Sgt. Major Plumley and thank you.

Thanks Sam. You are an actor and you recognise that the Major was a hero. Wish more actors would speak up in this manner.

It is not just Markos of Daily Kos infamy claiming the Left has won the culture war. The Week´s Matt Lewis is saying the same. Yeah, they are both kinda trolling. So ´scuse me while I take the bait. Let´s start with the biggie: same-sex marriage. Yes, polls show gay marriage is breaking out all over, but when put to a vote same-sex marriage has lost (even in California) much more often than not. Furthermore, gay marriage is not being legalized through popular opinion or demand, it is being legalized through activist judges. There is no question that attitudes have

Is Texas Gov. Rick Perry “sitting pretty” for 2016 as one journalist put it, or is another presidential run likely to be a flop, a campaign that barely gets off the ground? At the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering last month, Perry showed that he can still deliver a stem-winder. And at a Fort Hood news conference after the shooting, he showed the maturity and calm that voters will look for in a presidential contender: “There aren’t any easy answers to what occurred here, and there’s no way to wish away the suffering that’s occurring.

Are there no heroes left in America anymore? President Obama turns out to be an incompetent fraud who has never actually read the U.S. Constitution. Edward Snowden tucked tail and fled to Siberia. Washington Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman can no longer be relied upon to scoop up a crazy bouncer just inside third base line, pirouette and throw like a laser into first baseman Adam LaRoche’s mitt. And now, we learn, the Rev. Al Sharpton has been working for The Man all along. No matter how much he insists that he was just one fat cat keeping tabs on all

HOUSTON – Deputies have arrested and charged a Spring couple accused of keeping a 5-year-old boy malnourished inside the stairway closet of their home. Investigators said the child was found in his diaper in the small closet by his 16-year -old brother at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Then the teen confronted his father Bradley Bleimeyer. The teen and father got into a fist fight and officers were called to the house located in the 21500 block of Castlemont. By the time officers arrived, they said the victim’s stepmother Tammi Bleimeyer and biological father took off with the little boy. On Friday,

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston Mayor Annise Parker married her long-time partner, Kathy Hubbard, in a California wedding Thursday. Eyewitness News was the only Houston television station in Palm Springs for the wedding, and Mayor Parker told us shortly after she tied the knot that her wedding was "lovely." "We had a beautiful day," Parker told us. The city of Houston says Parker and Hubbard were married before a small group of people Thursday on the 23rd anniversary of their relationship. Parker´s mother and Hubbard´s sister were on hand for the exchange of vows, which were presided over by the Reverend

The Pasadena Star news reports that a San Diego woman has called for the Rose Parade to be boycotted because it will feature a gay wedding atop a float. The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), is titled, “Love is the Best Protection.” The parade will be watched by an estimated 68 million people around the world. San Diegan Karen Grube, who said her protest is not out of her religious convictions, and says she is opposed to having any wedding featured in the parade, has requested that corporate sponsors drop their funding of the parade if the

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
