Commander's Periscope......From The Right Side......The views expressed here DO NOT represent the US Military and some of the views belong strictly to my wife. Enough said!



For those that have emailed or commented in the last few months, thank you. We are doing really well and hope to be under the same roof again soon. BS should return home before long and we hope to blog more then.


We had hoped for this blog to be posted on regularly, but things have just gotten too busy for us.

Hopefully at some point down the road, we can begin posting regularly again.


Bloody Liberals

Liberals are the same no matter what country they are in!

Liberals are the only ones that can get away with so many contradictions. In the same article they say 1) we never should have been in Iraq and 2)the withdrawing of troops is admitting defeat. Talk about not being able to win!

With Liberals, they bitched because we went, they bitched when we stayed, and they bitch when a leader pulls their troops out. I wish someone in the mainstream media would force them to pick a side.

Bill would enhance credit rating protection

A Pennsylvania congressman wants the financial protections of the Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act to better protect troops’ credit ratings.

Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pa., wants consumer credit bureaus to include a notation in the files of service members that any report of a late payment or nonpayment of a bill could be the result of military service.

This would apply to active and reserve members but would be limited to accounts opened by a person in the military before starting military service, which, in the case of Guard or reserve members, would be before they are mobilized.

Brady introduced his bill, HR 513, Wednesday, and it was referred to the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, which has primary jurisdiction over the Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act. He sponsored similar legislation in 2003 that drew 32 co-sponsors. His earlier bill was assigned to the veterans’ benefits subcommittee, which did not include it in updates made in legal and financial protections when Congress overhauled the law.

Under that law, formerly known as the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act, creditors are limited in collecting debts while a service member is deployed or mobilized, and interest charged on consumer credit is capped.

Brady’s concern is that while the law may protect service members, creditors who are not getting paid or are getting reduced payments may include this information when notifying credit bureaus about the status of accounts, and those statements — without a disclaimer about military service being a factor — could have long-range implications for service members.
