Retired Marine Major Guards Canadian War Memorial

This situation illuminates the fact that the founding fathers were not obsessed with birth location nor with parentage when it came to the power of the Commander-in-Chief, but instead were highly concerned with national security.  At that time, the only way to insure loyalty to the United States was to require that the President be born of Americans.  This man’s story shows that the world has changed, and that loyalty to America can be assured even though one is a citizen of two countries, and that is possible only because there are now many other nations just like us, or very similar, -brothers of democracy and independence, albeit with a foreign monarch as their national figurehead (Queen Elizabeth).

Retired Marine Stands Guard At Canadian War Memorial Amidst Threats On His Life

Retired Marine Major R. E. G. “Fox” Sinke, Jr., a highly decorated veteran who did tours in Vietnam, has been standing guard over Canada’s National War Memorial in honor of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was killed last month by a lone wolf terrorist while guarding the memorial.

Sinke, a Canadian-American dual citizen who lives in Canada, said “the murder of the young Cpl. Cirillo was so despicable and craven that I just couldn’t find it within myself to do nothing.” He arrived at the memorial at 6:30 a.m. Friday and stood guard by himself until the Canadian honor guard and eight Canadian police officers with fully automatic weapons joined him at 9 a.m.

The senior police officer was initially concerned about Sinke guarding the monument alone.

“He says, ‘God man, you got more balls than brains don’t you?’ ” Sinke said. “So I said, ‘Well actually, sir, I was kind of hoping that one of those scum-of-the-earth radicals would show up and take me on because, to tell you the truth, I have always dreamed of being able to confront an evil-doer and run him through with this damn sword.’ So he kind of liked that, you know.”

Since he started guarding the memorial, Sinke has received some threatening phone calls. He said the people on the other end scream at him in Arabic – the only words he recognizes are, “kill you” because he’s heard them before – and then hang up. Despite some concerns from police, Sinke isn’t worried:

“If they’re looking for a fight, they came to the right guy… I promise you this: If they come here, they’ll die here.”

When a video aired of Sinke guarding the memorial, some questioned whether he actually served as a Marine. Guardian of Valor, an organization that vets claims about people’s military service, posted Sinke’s service records on their website, putting all doubts to rest.

“We did some digging and reached out to our contacts to find out more about Major Sinke, and we can tell you that not only did this man serve as a Marine, he was a highly decorated Marine! He is taking a stand for what he believes is right, and yes he has five Purple Hearts. This man is a true American and Canadian Hero, we salute you Sir and the stand you are taking!!!”

Sinke has a message for any would-be terrorists who might try to do him harm:

“Hey, you’re looking for a target, here’s a new one for you; give it your best shot; we’ll see how it works out for you.”
