A Salute To Specialist Bishop Evans
They just announced that they found the body of Specialist 4th Class Bishop Evans, a member of the Texas National Guard and part of the mission on the border between Texas and Mexico. He jumped into the river when he spotted two illegal border crossers trying to swim across the river who appeared to be drowning. He lost his life trying to save them.
These were two illegal border crossers (strike one) carrying illegal drugs (strike two) into our country (strike three). How often had they done this and were they ever caught before this? Did they report the loss of Specialist Evans or did someone else?
At this point I dare … dare anyone … anyone to speak disparagingly about Specialist Evans. I am 69 years old but I’ll gladly meet you on the courthouse steps and, while I may not win the fight, I will do my best to show you how soldiers stand together.
Specialist Evans served in the National Guard after serving on active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan supporting Special Forces and other active duty units. And for anyone who speaks disparagingly of this man just because he was black, I and an overwhelming majority of Americans want a piece of you. As I used to tell my soldiers “skin color doesn’t mean squat. It’s what runs under it that is the only important factor.”
Biden and his administration have a share of blame in the loss of this brave and unselfish soldier. But I’m sure all we are going to hear is lip service from him and the other toadies under him. I wouldn’t want him or his flunkies at the funeral. This includes his main flunky the VP. She would only show up because he was black.
Specialist Bishop Evans, I salute you, sir. I would’ve been proud to have had you as one of my men. I can only hope that you are awarded the Soldier’s Medal, which for those that don’t know is the highest peacetime medal that can be awarded. It is the peacetime equivalent of the Medal of Honor.
Biden, this hero’s blood is on your hands, yours and the rest of you ilk. But unlike this soldier’s family and friends, I know you will sleep at night with no problem.
All service members, active, reservists, non-active and retired take a moment and render a hand salute to this man.
Alan Marshall, USA, Retired
Done Sir, and thank you.
God Bless Bishop Evans, SAY HIS NAME!
I agree 100 % with Alan’s statements.
Well said my friend!
May his family stand tall and proud for Specialist Evens!
He is definitely a hero!
More border BS propaganda from Alan. The truth is that this fiasco falls on Gov. Abbott and poor military planning.
From the Texas Tribune:
“It’s not clear why the equipment wasn’t requested until February, 11 months after the mission began in March 2021. For months, soldiers have decried a lack of equipment on Abbott’s hastily deployed border mission, but the absence of water equipment is the first time that lack of supplies may have contributed to a soldier’s death.
Two Guard officials specializing in logistics told the Tribune and Military Times that the Texas Military Department sat on a request for flotation devices for three weeks before it was approved. The delays, those officials said, were avoidable and highlight the dysfunction plaguing the unprecedented $2 billion-per-year state mission.”
That is from a Texas newspaper.
The border has always been in crisis. No border wall, yelling or stomping feet under either party will change that. We need true immigration reform, not more of Alan type propaganda.
Too bad chris wasn’t trying to come to America I’d personally take a boat anchor to help him float across
Chris: What did Alan state that was “BS propaganda”? He was simply praising a young soldier that sacrificed his life trying to save criminals who appeared to be drowning on a swollen river. The administration has said nothing positive about this brave young man. I am so glad that we do not rely on spineless people like you to protect our lives and country. Your continued diatribe of comments clearly indicates your true colors, but you do give us old true American patriots something to write about.
He points to democrats. Ignoring the failing of the republican at the head of the state that failed this young man.
Chris, I want to thank you. I won a $10.00 bet you would not only reply, but would find some way to make that reply negative and cast disparaging remarks on this situation.
While I’m sure there is some truth to your comments about the life vests I’d like to point out that they are not standard issue for the soldiers patrolling the shores. Even if they had a surplus of them they are not issued to the troops on patrol. They are not expected to enter the water, but nice try and here’s a copy of our home game for playing.
As for “immigration reform”, we have a system. I know it works because I have a couple of relatives that have used it. What we are dealing with here are not “immigrants” but illegal aliens breaking the our laws. We have a system for both regular immigration and emergency situations.
Again, thanks for not disappointing me Chris, it was profitable.
You won 10 bucks by reliability being an ignorant sheep of the modern Republican movement. You should be so proud. Lol
You ignore the failings of the right while exaggerating the failures of the left.
Very much a predictable old fool. I bet you make another biased ingornat post within the next week. Lmao
You are so predictable that Alan won $10 by predicting what you’d do – and you call HIM predictable? Psychologists call this projection. It’s a symptom of mental illness.
I believe while reading your letter , it is you that need to house at least 3 of these criminals …and they are criminals too. And the ol fart in Washington DC . Should go back down in that basement , where he came from…
You are odious and despicable, Chris. An amazingly unselfish and breathtakingly courageous act by a de facto Border Control agent has been twisted by you into an attack on the governor of Texas.
Is there no low to which you will not stoop – just to score political points?
You are a real Democrat.
Guess you can’t read. Alan used this tragic event to frame as a failure of the white house to score political points but ignored the real failure of Abbott and the military leaders over the guard.
Predictable of Alan for sure. And predictable if you to ignore the point of my comment to be ugly as you are.
One of us is definitely an ugly individual, inside and out.
Read the comments of people here and see if you can figure out who’s the assh*le.
Without myself and a couple other folks, this would just be an echo chamber of ignorant comments. Rhino Times is better than that so I enjoy offering the counter points or alternative point of view. Sure I use divisive language, that is all I assume you understand given how you do the same.
When will you have your list of candidates ?
Wednesday, May 4.
Too bad it wasn’t Biden or Harris found floating in that river.
This blood is on the hands of slo joe and his border “czar” harris. What a f$$king joke of an administration. Salute to you Patriot Evans
I would like to encourage everyone to contact the Governor of Texas and encourage him to posthumously promote Specialist Evans to Sergeant thus allowing any dependents to receive slightly more benefits.
The cartels are making millions of dollars each day for the transport of illegals and the transport of drugs to our country at the border. Biden needs to be impeached for not complying with the laws of this country that cover immigration. The answer is simple-vote for Republicans in November who will return sanity to the USA and save our country from the left wing idiots that have taken over the administration.
What law is he breaking? Name one.
