I am always proud when my Marine brothers and sisters excel! There are few Marines who have done better than my friend Rudy Reyes. You have likely read about him in the book Generation Kill or watched him in the mini-series of the same name (in which he played himself). He has also been in Ultimate Survival Alaska and numerous other roles. Today I learned that Rudy was going to play the lead role in “Inside Fighter” and “John Came Home”. The film is currently in production and is looking for more funding! If you are so inclined…think about contributing to the project. Read more about the film here.
50% of profits from John Came Home go to “The Raider Project” As stated on their website: ”
“The Raider Project is a non-profit organization based out of Holly Ridge, NC. Our mission is to connect with MARSOC and Reconnaissance veterans to help them transition smoothly, peacefully and successfully into the private sector. We do this through PTSD and TBI counseling, unconventional brain treatments for disorders of the brain and central nervous system, short term financial assistance, resume coaching and small business support, get-away retreats and fishing trips as well as community sports programs.”

I just learned that a fine man and information security visionary passed away this summer. Rick Dakin was the co-founder and CEO of Coalfire, a well-respected information security company. Over the years I have had numerous opportunities to work with Rick and interface with him. I am truly saddened to have learned that our industry has lost such a fine man and fine leader. Under Rick’s leadership as CEO, Coalfire grew from a regional security company into an internationally known security firm.
Rest In Peace Rick…your influence in the information security and business arena cannot be overstated.

I read this today and I wanted to cry and then my blood began to boil. We continue to hear stories about people preying upon the most vulnerable of our society. Those who are not just children but don’t have the ability to tell the story about how they were injured because they are Autistic. These people are the most deplorable of all human beings. Nicholas Kernechel from Pennsylvania actually took a tool and pulled 3 teeth out of a little Autistic boy’s mouth leaving him crying and bleeding. Do a quick Google search and you will find one example after another of an Autistic child being abused by a teacher, caregiver, or someone else. Many of these children (including my own son) cannot speak and it is often long after the abuse or negligence before the “real story” is told or proven. “My son is trying to tell me something and he’s not able to,” Caldwell said. His son does not speak. It is easy to prey upon these vulnerable kids knowing that they cannot defend themselves or tell the story of how they were hurt. People who prey on the most vulnerable children are less than sub-humans. They deserve our absolute contempt and even our hate. They are less than human do not deserve to even live in our society. Forgive my rant but this hits very close to home….

I was privileged to have both served with Brian Terry while we were stationed as young Marines in Italy and to have called him a friend. In 2010, while serving on the BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit), Brian was killed by two Mexican nationals who had entered the US Illegally. Brian was killed by weapons that were illegally sent to Mexico by the ATF in Operation Fast and Furious. According to the Los Angeles times: “The jury found Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza and Ivan Soto-Barraza guilty of all counts. Jurors had begun deliberations Wednesday afternoon, a week after the trial began in federal court in Tucson. Sanchez-Meza, also known as Lionel Portillo-Meza, and Soto-Barraza were part of a five-man crew that planned on robbing drug smugglers when they encountered Agent Brian Terry and three others on Dec. 14, 2010…Terry never had a chance to fire. He died of a gunshot wound that entered through his back.”
While we cannot bring Brian back, it is a step in the right direction that these murderers were convicted. Now…if only we can convict the other criminals (Eric Holder) who were responsible for the debacle known as Fast and Furious.

UPDATE– Yesterday I posted this “article” to demonstrate just how easy it is to convince people to click on malicious links. Even with the end of the article saying that it was a spoof, there were still ~25% of readers (24 out of the first 95) who clicked on the link. The point was simply to demonstrate that social engineering is alive and well and very easy to conduct. The idea that Hillary’s private email was ‘secure’ is a preposterous claim. Thanks for everyone who read this.
While denying that there is any evidence of her private email server being hacked…The Secret Service just released a report that proves Hillary Clinton’s private email server was hacked repeatedly by China, Russia and Iran using a common “spear fishing method’ known as a ‘drive by infection’. This is a common method used by the Chinese, Russians, Iranians and others to initiate an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack. Click here to read the official government report! (more…)
