“Take Your Best Shot”, Was The Marine Guarding The Canada National War Memorial Real?






Major Ralph “Fox” Sinke Jr.



Ottawa Canada – Since the terrorist attack in Canada that took the life of CPL. Nathan Cirillo, a guy in a Marine uniform sporting five Purple Hearts has been guarding the Canadian National War memorial. The below interview was done with him, and we began getting emails and wall posts from everyone wanting to know if he was really a Marine.



He goes by the name of Major “Fox” Sinke, and he stated, Courtesy of Global News:

“That’s how I see it. So I’m paying tribute to him, as best I can. We are not intimidated. Take your best shot.”

Sinke was wearing a Marine uniform as he marched around the National War Memorial.

“There are those of us who understand what’s happening and we’re not gonna lie down for it,” he said. “Not gonna happen. That’s basically why I’m here. I’m just here to make my own little personal damn statement.”


So 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!!!

Below are his records:







Again, we salute Major Sinke for his stand at the National War Memorial in Canada, and for his service to both of our countries.  Major Sinke has also authored several books detailing his experiences in the Vietnam War, one is titled When None Of Their Dreams Are Dead.


UPDATE 20141105:

Major Sinke has received several phone calls threatening is life since Tuesday, below is how he responded, according to Army Times.

Sinke said he received at least two phone calls on Tuesday from people who screamed at him in Arabic and then hung up.

“The only words I recognized were ‘kill you,’ because I’ve heard them before,” he said.

When Sinke told police about the phone calls, he added, “I promise you this: If they come here, they’ll die here


I guess these terrorists don’t understand our resolve, you don’t screw with America or our North American allies, and you surely don’t threaten a hardened Marine!
