AMAZING: See What This Air Force Captian Did With a Sword!

Move America Forward | August 8, 2012 

With the whole world watching the Olympic games in London, this is a perfect opportunity to recognize some amazing military athletes who not only serve in the Armed Forces, but are now competing to be the best in the world at the Olympics.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT OUR HEROES COMPETING ON THE BATTLEFIELD IN AFGHANISTAN

As we celebrate our Military Olympians, who can do such amazing things in their events, let us not forget the amazing things our troops overseas do every day in Afghanistan.

Our troops continue fighting the Taliban and Al-Qaeda despite the 110+ degree heat and diminishing media coverage about their efforts. They fight to make sure that Afghanistan never again becomes a safe haven and training ground for terrorist to plot attacks to kill American civilians – which is their aim!

Our fighting military will not receive media attention or acclaim for their heroic acts, but we will thank them with a care packages of support from home.

                           
KELSEY BEATS FORMER WORLD CHAMPION BUT FALLS JUST SHORT OF OLYMPIC MEDAL                                            

Keep reading every day from now through the end of the Olympics as we bring you the stories of our Military Olympians and their impressive achievements, we recently heard about Captain Seth Kelsey who just took 4th place at the Olympics in London!

Air Force Reserve Capt. Seth Kelsey finished one touch away from a medal Aug. 1 in Olympic épeé individual fencing at the ExCel Centre.
Kelsey lost his semifinal bout in sudden-death overtime, 6-5, to the fencer who went on to win the gold medal, Venezuela’s Ruben Limardo Gascon. Then he dropped another sudden-death decision in the bronze-medal match to Korea’s Jinsun Jung, 12-11.                                                                                                                   Despite Kelsey’s disappointment in missing a medal, he said it felt good to defeat former world-champion Nikolai Novosjolov of Estonia, 15-11, earlier in the day.                                                                                                                  “I fenced in the world championships last year, and I lost a very close match by one touch,” Kelsey said. “So I knew I had to challenge him every moment.”                                                                                                                  The Air Force Academy graduate began the day ranked 17th in the tournament and made an unexpected run to the semifinals
Kelsey practices at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. One of his training partners is a member of the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program, Sgt. Cody Nagengast, who was in London as Kelsey’s training partner.

We’re celebrating military athletes who serve their country on the battlefield and as part of TEAM USA at the Olympic games.

While these Military Olympians deserve our praise and all the media coverage the Olympics brings, we can’t forget about the military heroes serving overseas.

Their feats on the battlefield often go unrecognized and are not covered by the media, but they are just as deserving of our praise and recognition as our Olympians.

We have over 90,000 troops still serving in Afghanistan and they need our support!      

SPONSOR A CARE PACKAGE NOW!

This is still about the troops who are on the front lines fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda. They are in harm’s way and they’re the troops we’re sending care packages to!
