Listen LIVE to the ‘The Sean Hannity Show’ Tuesday evening and hear the harrowing true story of Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward “Eddie” Gallagher, a 19-year veteran who’s fighting for his freedom after being charged for “mistreating” ISIS terrorists during combat operations.
“Fulfilling a lifelong call to serve his country and a sacred family tradition, Chief Gallagher joined the service soon after high school in 1999 and enlisted in the Navy. He joined the ranks of his father, a West Point graduate and retired Lieutenant Colonel, two naval aviator uncles (one of whom died in the service), and three grandparents who served in World War II,” writes JusticeforEddie.com.
“After 19 years in the service and eight combat tours, Eddie is among the most elite of warriors who has served quietly and bravely on the front lines to protect his country in nearly every conflict since 9/11,” adds the site.

MUST SEE: AZ Veterans Memorial Syncs Perfectly with the Sun at 11:11 on 11/11
Each year on 11/11 at 11:11 a.m., the sun shines directly through the ellipses of the five pillars of the Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona, casting a perfect solar spotlight on the glass mosaic of the Great Seal of the United States.
The five pillars represent the five branches of the U.S. military and are placed by the Department of Defense order of precedence: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The memorial was designed by Renee Palmer Jones and represents the American flag, with red pavers and white carrara marble pillars standing tall beneath the backdrop of the blue Arizona sky. The names of U.S. servicemen and women are etched in the pavers.
Adding to the significance of the memorial, it opened for the first time on 11/11/11 at 11:11 a.m. The November 11 date is significant because it is the day the world celebrates the armistice which ended World War I. The agreement was signed by the Allies and Germany in France on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” in 1918.
Jim Martin, the chief engineer of the monument explains how they were able to achieve the beautifully timed solar phenomenon: “When planning the geometry of the Anthem Veterans Memorial, it was clear that the static nature of the structure would require a fixed azimuth (the horizontal angle from astronomical north to the center of the sun on Nov. 11 at 11:11 a.m. that creates the horizontal illumination of the Great Seal) and a fixed altitude angle (the vertical angle for zenith, or horizon, to the center of the sun on Nov. 11 at 11:11 a.m. that creates the vertical illumination of the Great Seal).”
SAVED FROM THE CAVE: Entire Soccer Team, Coach RESCUED from Flooded Cave
The tense three-day rescue of twelve boys and their coach wrapped-up Tuesday, with all thirteen people successfully removed from a flooded cave in Thailand after being trapped underground for more than two weeks.
The Thai Navy SEALS confirmed the successful mission on their official Facebook page, noting that four rescuers, a doctor, and three SEALS remained in the cave an additional two hours before emerging.
“All 12 Wild Boars and coach have been extracted from the cave. Hooyah!” the post said. The Navy SEALS later wrote: “We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what. All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave.”
The high-stakes operation involved 19 divers, multiple doctors, and at least three SEALS.
“Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday’s intricate and high-risk operation began just after 10 a.m. and involved 19 divers. A medic and three Thai Navy SEALs who have stayed with the boys on a small, dry shelf deep in the flooded cave will also come out,” writes Fox.
