SFC Ton


Sometimes the people who come into our lives change us dramatically for the better simply because of who they are and who they choose to be. Ton is one of those people.

I’ve never met Ton in real life, and I have no idea what his real name is. I would have very much liked to have met him ~ not to be one of his many conquests! lol! But just to know him. It would have been cool to be his sister or cousin. But, alas, we do not get to choose our family. But we do get to choose our friends, and I consider Ton a friend.

Since I do not know who he is in real life, I do not know why we haven’t seen him since the end of June. I thought it appropriate, though, to share what I do know. And I thought it appropriate to have a post in his honor.

On April 17, 2017, Ton wrote in the comments at The Rational Male:

As for the rest, it ain’t a big deal. Been on borrowed time for about 17 years now. Getting a time line focuses the attention, makes things real in away hearing it the 1st time didn’t. Take away is, keep living and I reckon bikes are my security blanket

I don’t read Rollo’s site and didn’t know about these comments until our Liz wrote this comment at Ton’s site:

I’m counting on the docs being wrong like they have many, many times in the past but for near on two decades I lived like my breathing wasn’t an issue.
It’s the tooling around with the little 02 machine I am going to like the least but at some point, some dude is going to have to live the rest of his life knowing he got his ass kicked by an old many with an oxygen tank

As I said, I do not know Ton in real life, but the impact he’s made on mine is profound, and I am deeply grateful to know him virtually from afar.

I hope he’s still riding the roads on his bike, messin’ with his girls, playing with his two young boys, mentoring his oldest son and his daughter, and enjoying his grandbabies. And while I lament not ever having had the opportunity to meet him, I am thankful that I’ll get to meet him someday on the other side.

Ton has left a lot of wisdom out here in the virtual world, including on his own blog, SFC Ton’s Blog. I haven’t always agreed with him 🙂 , but I have always respected him.

I thought it would be great to have a place where we can share the wisdom and comments he’s made over time that we remember . . . have a place to come back to and absorb, once again, his wisdom.

While searching Rollo’s site for the comment Liz referred to, I ran across a couple of other comments I thought worth re-sharing. Here’s one about male friendship and leadership:

SFC Ton

I think most men lack true friends because they don’t have that series of shared extreme hardship experience that create masculine bonds. This lack of masculine friendship is another down side to civilized life
Trust? An honest man, who can find? I trust my rifle, my training, the Ranger next to me and my Pit Bull. Again, how do you trust a man who hasn’t gone through some serious shit with you?


Killing and fucking? It is the nature of things. When I was a kid, I was #1 in the stack. Didn’t want to do anything else, wasn’t good for much else either. As I grew in experience, running a team better use of my experience. When you’re young you don’t know how to lead, somewhere around 30 you can lead some and are still damn good on point, but good leadership counts for more. Those door kickers and team leaders both need training and mentoring and they can’t train or mentor themselves, which is what you do as you grow in experience, understanding and hopefully wisdom.

Here’s a comment about fear:

SFC Ton
When I read a man who says he don’t fear anything I have to wonder what has been thrown his way.


Has he a the real possibility of his child dying of the doctors dont know what? Had a race bike go down at high speed? Have his parachute fail? Look down and see his legs shredded? Been water boarded etc etc.
No fear has to one of the dumbest things ever put on a bumper sticker.

Here’s a comment about women, abortion, and divorce:

SFC Ton
Women care more about babies then men?


Bullfuckingshit.#1) Abortion would be illegal if only men voted #2) women abuse childern, their own biological childern way more often then men #3) divorce stats show its women breaking up babies

Here’s a comment of his I kept and titled, Ton’s Lament:

I don’t know Ame.. I know this is no longer a Godly nation, a White man’s nation or federated republic. It’s a nation that celebrates perversion, godlesness and child murder. I know the deep state and shot callers are increasingly frogein born and hostile to God and Whites and I know the US military has never failed to fire on American civilians.
What other men do with that intell is on them but my family is done. 5 generations of combat vets, 4 generations of SpecOp combat vets and I made the decision this govermnet and most of the people are no longer worth or lives, limbs, blood and souls. What kind of shitty nation has a war every fucking generation? Probably hasn’t been worth it since the 1940’s. Most def not since the 1960’s. Which pretty much pisses on my father, my oldest son and myself.

I’ll share one more comment that I kept that Ton made. This one I shared with my daughters because it’s full of truth … but I think it also encapsulates who SFC Ton is:

Life ain’t much different then a boxing match.


The other side has their own plan trying to win their own fight at your expense and it’s unrealistic to think you’ll win every round but you can always win the next round. Or maybe the best you can manage is winning the next fight. Sometimes you knock so,e fucker out in the 1st round. Other times You get caught by supirse and it’s your knees buckling in the 1st round. You get knocked down, you do your best to come back swinging smarter and harder. Sometimes you fight hard as hell for 15 rounds and the best you can manage is loosing. Don’t rightly matter because if you fight hard and loose folks will still pay to see you fight again and you’re still in the money.


Divroced against your will, so to speak,? Well you probably can’t win that round but you can win the next round and the next fight.


Or you can loose a couple of rounds then lay down and die. Just don’t expect anyone to respect that shit.

Where ever you are, Ton, you are greatly missed. Thank you for leaving nuggets of wisdom all over cyber space. We are better people for having known you, even if only virtually and from afar.

And . . . if Ton were to ever read this post, I’d hope he’d comment, “Ame, Legit, Darlin’!”

    Long before the El Paso massacre, President Trump’s political opponents accused him of sowing “division” with his “racist language.” Mr. Trump “exploits race,” “uses race for his gain,” is engaged in a “racially divisive reprise” of his 2016 campaign, stokes “racial resentments,” and puts “race at the fore,” the New York Times has reported over the past several months.

    Yet Mr. Trump rarely uses racial categories in his speech or his tweets. It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely characterize individuals and groups by race and issue race-based denunciations of large parts of the American polity.

    And so today we pay homage to the MIA Sfc Ton. Don’t know where he is, but he insinuated some months ago he’d been told things were finite for him, soon.

    They just don’t make ’em like Ton anymore. Every time I think of Ton, I see Gunnery Sgt. Hartman from Full Metal Jacket:

    Loud. In your face. Direct. Brazen. Don’t give a shit what you think. Unabashedly loves his country, his people, his unit, and those in his charge.

    And will kick your nuts up between your ears and not lose a second’s sleep over it.

    There are people who talk about killing, and then people who talk about it and have done it and can do it. Ton is one of the latter. I believe if I did pose a threat to him, he’d fill me full of lead, sink a bayonet to its hilt into my chest, and without skipping a beat, then sit down and drink a double bourbon neat whilst laughing a bit about it.

    Ton, your love for your girls, your children, your way of life, your people, and, well, us, will not be forgotten. I learned a lot from you. Tonight I’ll raise a glass of Woodford Reserve in your honor.

    @Ame, just wow. I have no words that can improve on what others have already said. Excellent job.

    Unless and until I see a body, Ton aint gone.

    As Ame has demonstrated here, Ton left a few clues that he had a sell-by date. Ton’s body doesn’t need to be gone for him to be unavailable to us. Strokes are good for doing that, as is being forced to bed-rest on an oxygen machine, etc.

    The one thing I’m curious about, given that Ton admitted to having a sell-by date that was pretty certain – I would think he would have one of his girls or one of his friends (or his editor, The Shadow Knight) primed to post a message of sorts to his blog once he became unable to post there. If he was required to do jail time – as hinted at upthread – again, I would think he would have known his “report by” date ahead of time and would have left some indication on his blog.

    I’ve done a cursory search for a blog run by The Shadow Knight, but have found nothing. He comments on Ton’s “fear” blog that Ame linked to above. And Ton quotes him on this blog post in 2014, which is also a good read: In His Own Words and here at Spawnys Space

    TSK says this in the comment section of that thread:

    Zodak, I could have written your post, except for the age and the women. I will have no wife, no children, and no family. I have seen far to many of my friends and family torn apart by women to let one that close to my life.

    It hit me as I was reading that quote, and because of the experences my wife and I have had with several diferent families where the wife blew up the marriage and left shattered children in her wake: We need no other reason than that quote by TSK to realize the value of patriarchy, in the he will rule over you, in the truest sense of the old definition of husbandry / husbandman sense. If women, when left to their own devices, drive men away from creating the building-block of society (families, husbanded and ruled over by the male) – if women, when left to their own devices, create sons that grow up to utter that quote made by TSK – then women truely should not be left to their own devices. And, to the extent that any given woman is not introspective, she will never comprehend this about herself (that she needs to be ruled over). That is why I said, in a thread a few threads back, that men are the ones who must establish and defend the boundaries required for civilization to exist, because – for the most part – many women will not recognize the need for those boundaries and will rebel against them – to the detriment of everybody.

    thank you, Richard.

    one of the things that Ton so easily taught me in ways that made sense to me was what a very strong man and leader looks like. he didn’t rule without mercy, rather, he ruled with great mercy and justice, even though it might have ‘looked’ otherwise sometimes. he set his boundaries firm and enforced them. he didn’t freak out when his girls acted like girls; he expected it and was prepared for it.

    these were profound truths for me b/c my first husband was continually incensed when i acted like, well, a girl. i said to him a few (or more!) times, “If you wanted a man, you should have married a man.” (note – that never went over well 😉 ). but he expected behavior from me that was not going to happen b/c i am a woman.

    Ton never expected women to behave as men. he expected us girls out here to act like girls. he never hesitated to call us on it or to correct us when necessary. he didn’t apologize for it, either. he was firm and direct; we either got on board or we didn’t, and he didn’t sweat it either way.

    … he [Ton] didn’t freak out when his girls acted like girls; he expected it and was prepared for it.

    … my first husband was continually incensed when i acted like, well, a girl. … he expected behavior from me that was not going to happen b/c i am a woman.

    Some perspective, with regard to those two comments:

    Not All Women Are Like That (NAWALT) – with respect to many things. Not all women are tall; not all women are redheads; not all women are introverted; not all women are blessed with the right amount of hormones that make women feminine or “girly”. And more.

    Ton’s “girls” are different in important ways from Ame. And Ame is different in important ways from Ton’s mother. So – just to state the obvious which I’m sure the regular readers already know – women have different capabilities, and different feminine capabilities, because they have differing amounts of the biology that underlies capabilities of any sort.

    Gently now, because I’m only trying to make a point, I’m not trying to scold – Ame’s response to her husband If you wanted a man, you should have married a man. is not the only response possible. And that response allows one to discount the guy instead of taking his thoughts and concerns seriously. What if, instead of wanting a man, he just wanted a different type of woman? Ton’s mother, perhaps? One might conclude that she was more like a man than Ton’s girls. Yet she wasn’t a man. She was a woman. Just not the kind of woman that Ame is or that Ton’s girls are. It is possible for a man to desire a partner who is “more like a man”, but yet isn’t a man.

    It is said that opposites attract. To the extent that they do, for any given couple one spouse is probably more outgoing and the other spouse is probably more retiring. There is comfort in that symbiosis for the two spouses. But – until Ame’s comment that I quoted here, it never occurred to me to think about the effect of that on any children. Per what Ton said at the link I gave about “Ton’s Mother”, he felt rejected by his mother. Elsewhere, Ton stated that his relationship with his father was never good (iirc). If Ton’s mother was strong, and if opposites attract, then we might conclude that Ton’s father was a more retiring man. If what Ton says is true, Ton seems to have been born with an abundance of the hormones and other biology that allow / encourage a male to become a very masculine / alpha man. Which would put him at odds with the position his mother established for herself within the family. And likewise at odds with the position his father accepted for himself within the family.

    Don’t want to be “armchair analyzing here”. Just wanted to say enough for these three points to make sense:

    1. The truth that “opposites attract” plays out in marriages can create situations that can be not good for the children. Ton’s story is a case-in-point if I am right about the causes. Ton, by all accounts, got the biology that allowed / encouraged him to be a strong male. Something that his father seems to not have been and something it seems that his mother did not want around in her son(s) (That last part based on all of the comments about how feminists are raising their sons to be effeminate. Consider the angst of the feminist whose son refuses to comply … because biology.)

    2. Re. Ame’s comment that when Ton’s girls acted like girl’s, he expected it. Just pointing out the truth that Ton had exposure to the fact that girl’s sometimes don’t just act like girls – through his mother. And perhaps through his girls Ton gets the feminine / girly affection that he desired from his mother and did not seem to get from her.

    3. Ton was a very bright guy who packaged himself as a southern redneck. Perhaps that was real and not an act. If so, then he was a very bright redneck – something of an oxymoron. He had an obviously bright mother. Maybe a bright father also (I haven’t read much of anything from Ton about his father). So he had access to the genes from bright parents.

I think that he just saw Fuzzie as a brother down. And it’s part of why I believe that Ton lead his men wisely and well.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Joe Biden has apologized for his recent seemingly racist comment, where he said that poor kids are sometimes as smart as white kids.

    “Everyone who knows me knows I’m not a racist,” said Biden. “I even have a black friend, Barry. Smart, articulate guy.”

    Aides were then seen signaling him to stop talking, but Biden pushed on.

    “Rest assured,” Biden said. “I like all races, even the bad ones.”

    Aides threw up their hands in exasperation.

    “What? What’d I say?”

    Media immediately jumped all over Biden’s comments, responding to his horrifying gaffe by calling on President Trump to resign.

    Whatever else anyone might think of Ton, no one can doubt that he likes us. He likes being part of us. He likes being here and commenting here. If he thinks you’re wrong, he’ll correct you, and tell you how you’re wrong. He might be gruff about it, but that’s only because he cares about you enough to not see you screw it up.

    I have never once doubted his sincerity, nor that the beliefs he holds weren’t thought out and garnered through hard won experience . I haven’t seen one tenth of the shit Ton has. So if he says something, I know that he believes it most genuinely.

    i saw that, too, Spawny. and i was always intrigued how he led men that way … how he wanted and demanded the best. very masculine. our culture, as we’ve stated over and over, has feminized men, but then Ton comes around and expects and demands men to be Men and is willing to teach them how. it’s why kids NEED their dad’s.

    PORTLAND, OR—In a press release earlier this week, Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw (her actual name), appearing somber and exhausted, said she just wishes there were some kind of group with the firepower and authority to fight back against Antifa.

    In a candid moment, Outlaw (seriously, her actual name) said there was just nothing the police could do, as they’d need to have some kind of organized, armed force specifically created to protect and serve the people.

    “Like, what if we took money from everyone to fund a force that could then defend them in a time of need?” she pondered aloud. “They could have patrol cars, firearms, and attack dogs. Maybe even some tanks. That would be so frickin’ rad. They could have a badge to show their authority. Then, when a rogue group like Antifa shows up to take over our city every weekend, they could be repelled using force if necessary.”

    “I know it sounds crazy, but a girl can dream, right?” she added wistfully.

    Sadly, there is no such force in Portland, so citizens have been forced to turn to an even crazier idea: taking responsibility for their own safety and well-being, and maybe even buying a gun to protect themselves.

    this is very interesting … and i believe it. one of the best things in my Aspie-Girl’s tool box is breathing techniques … even taking 3 deep, slow breaths, holding after breathing in, changes her brain.

    Rhythm of Breathing Affects Memory and Fear

    Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered for the first time that the rhythm of breathing creates electrical activity in the human brain that enhances emotional judgments and memory recall.

    These effects on behavior depend critically on whether you inhale or exhale and whether you breathe through the nose or mouth.

    In the study, individuals were able to identify a fearful face more quickly if they encountered the face when breathing in compared to breathing out. Individuals also were more likely to remember an object if they encountered it on the inhaled breath than the exhaled one. The effect disappeared if breathing was through the mouth.

    “One of the major findings in this study is that there is a dramatic difference in brain activity in the amygdala and hippocampus during inhalation compared with exhalation,” said lead author Christina Zelano, assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “When you breathe in, we discovered you are stimulating neurons in the olfactory cortex, amygdala and hippocampus, all across the limbic system.”

    Have known Fuzzie off and on for years as far back as the Sunshine Mary’s first blog, back when most of us were wondering why so many things seemed to be going South. Back at SSM’s, I was trying to explain why Alpha widows did exist and why. He didn’t seem to want to believe it, so as I remember, we talked about horses instead ;-D

    He is a bit hurt because most of what he was told as a kid is wrong. He really doesn’t want to believe what he is seeing…so there would be no point in Ton hanging a licking on him. A week or so ago at RPG’s I was explaining that girls were often attracted to the risk and resultant tingles created by somewhat bad boys. Pointing out that my wife was attracted to my being a roughneck and wearing a saddle bronc trophy belt buckle. It certainly was not because of my pretty face ;-D

    BTW, have you seen that somewhat tear jerker movie yet? Fuzzie liked it, he is just going to have to keep looking for a woman that hasn’t gone feral.

    The movie is pretty realistic except that other than the more windswept areas it would have faced swarms of biting bugs. Not only mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and black flies but also moose and caribou flies.,..a much larger version of horseflies. You can actually view the mandibles of moose flies with your naked eyes, they look like ivory scimitars and take a big bite out of your meat so they can lap up the blood.

    Your favorite movie plus this one are based on the writings of Farley Mowat…an author sometimes accused of…er, well, exaggeration. My Dad said he didn’t see how Farley ever saw any of his tales because he was usually drinking at the pub until it closed ;-D

The 31 genders listed include “drag king,” “drag queen,” “butch,” “femme queen,” “gender fluid,” “gender blender,” “gender gifted,” “gender bender,” and “femme person of transgender experience.” The ruling imposed fines of up to $250,000 for businesses that fail to address one of these folks by their preferred pronouns. In addition, people in New York City may use the bathroom or locker room of their choice — based on their “gender identity” — without having to show any kind of documentation or proof of their gender identities.
