Thank God For The Foot Soldiers

No army can operate without generals, officers and foot soldiers. It’s the foot soldiers who are thrown into battle and suffer the most injuries and fatalities.

My father, a Lt. Colonel who commanded a tank battalion in Europe in 1945, was massively wounded when a bazooka hit his tank in the German town of Kaiserslautern.

All his life we kids asked him questions about being an officer in the military and what the experience was like. He refused to answer those questions, always referring to the heroism of foot soldiers who paid the highest price in the war to defeat facism. His biggest love in life was the common soldier who fought on the front lines.

My reason for writing this: There are foot soldiers in the war for a return to Constitutional rights in HOA Amerika. They don’t have websites, they don’t get interviewed, they don’t write talked-about books. But their research into the ugly, systematic abuse of homeowners, along with their ongoing emails which inform us of abuses we’d never know about otherwise, are invaluable in our battle.






And many others.

Our community is too small, because we’re able to identify most of our ranks by first names only. But it’s growing, I promise you it’s growing.

And thank you from the bottom of my heart.

He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.

    Thank you, Ward. You have given us all a place to meet and gather strength. You’re following in your Dad’s footsteps with leadership.

    This past two weeks I have witnessed the strength of the “Kansas Pink Flamingo Army” in the federal courthouse during this unbelievable HOA case in Wichita. We were united in our fight for KUCIOBORA when we climbed the steps to the Kansas Capitol in Topeka. We are still united today…and still fighting nightmare HOAs. Another foot soldier in our KPFA was just granted all of his legal fees in his HOA case in Overland Park.

    I would like to add these HOA fighting soldiers to your list, Jerry, Sallie, Sylvia, Bud, Paul, and Phil. We’ve been on the front lines together…we know the HOA war first-hand and I’m so thankful for the battles we’ve won…keep fighting!

    “General Nila”
