patriotism: SIX BOYS ON IWO JIMA - 03/19/12 08:06 AM
The Greatest Generation is leaving AMERICA in our hands.  How will our Generation respond?
What makes AMERICA great is our fidelity to Honor, Valor, and Liberty.
"NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY." Perhaps an old man can refresh our memory and rejoin our resolve to defend our Nation from powers, foreign and domestic, that would infringe upon that Freedom we hold so dear.

patriotism: JUSTICE: NAVY SEAL TEAM SIX - 05/02/11 05:37 AM

TODAY, AMERICA REJOICES.  TODAY the world sees both the power and persistence of our military.  TODAY we sing with great pride "Home of the Free, and Land of the Brave."  As President Obama stated, "Justice Has Been Done."  We remember President Bush had said to a joint session of Congress, "Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done."
We take great pride in the men and women who serve our Nation as Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, Firefighters and Policemen.  We remember 343 Firefighters and 23 Policemen who ran to the trouble … (5 comments)

9/11...WHERE WERE YOU?  HOW HAS IT CHANGED YOU?  We will hear those questions today, and I have clear recolections of that day--don't you?
I was a mortgage loan officer with MORTGAGE RESOURCES INC. in Nashville, Tennessee.  I had arrived at the office shortly after 6 AM, made a pot of coffee and settled in to doing paperwork.  I realized I had left my laptop computer at home, and decided to return home and get it.
I arrived home about five minutes before the first plane hit the World Trade Center.  My office television was on "Fox and Friends" when I walked in … (4 comments)

patriotism: TODAY IS MEMORIAL DAY--Not an excuse for a 3-day holiday!!! - 05/30/10 04:45 PM
TODAY IS MEMORIAL DAY--Not an excuse for a 3-day holiday!!!   Did you stop to reflect on the great price that has been paid for your freedom??? I hope each of us took time to think about our freedom, to think about the cost of that freedom, and those who paid the ultimate price.
To every GI, and to every GI's spouse, child or parent we want to say "THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE."  BUT TODAY is not about those of us who have worn the uniform of this great Nation: IT IS ABOUT THOSE WHO PAID THE SUPREME SACRIFICE.  Veterans Day is … (2 comments)
