I Bet You Didn’t Know These Guys Are Marines

Posted by Michael J. PENNEY on


These Marines have helped influence my life in hugely positive ways. I highly recommend you understand their work and contributions to our world.

Thomas Sowell 

Thomas Sowell was drafted into the United States Marine Corps in 1951. However, he did not serve in the Korean War. His experience as a photographer led to Sowell getting assigned a journalism based military occupational specialty. Additionally, Thomas Sowell was a combat marksmanship instructor. He was honorably discharged in 1953.

Mr. Sowell then went on to Howard University, Harvard University, Columbia University.

Professor Sowell has taught economics at Howard University, Cornell, Rutgers, Brandeis, Amherst College, and the University of California, Los Angeles.

He is an esteemed Senior Fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, working alongside his mentor and friend, Milton Friedman since 1980. Upon Milton and his wife Rose passing, Thomas became member to the fellowship named after them, the “Rose Milton Friedman fellowship”. He is best known for his books on the subject of economics and the policies which lead to strife in our world.

Robert Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki served in the Vietnam War as a gunship pilot. He graduated the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy before joining the Corps as an officer.  It was his time in the Marine Corps, and especially combat, which led to his understanding of the character and discipline one needs in order to succeed.

Robert Kiyosaki went on to invest in real estate and eventually write the popular “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. Which has become a series of works, games, online course, and collaborations. Robert preaches the need for asset backed currency and how cash has become trash.

He proves every day that military service members can leave the tribe and succeed, provided they maintain bearing and discipline gained through time in uniform.

Joseph McArthy

Joseph McArthy served in the Marine Corps for three years as a circuit judge from 1940-1942. He was a Wisconsin based attorney prior to the war and after. In 1952 McArthy won the seat for U.S. Senate.

He became well known for alleging the corruption of the U.S. state department by communists. Few remember that working alongside McArthy to weed out the deep state threat was none other than young Robert Kennedy.

The term “McArthyism” carries a negative connotation gilded by the mainstream media.

Seems to me, we could use some more senators who are willing to weed out the deep state.

I invite our sitting senators to read JFK’s Pulitzer prize winning book: “Profiles In Courage”
