And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.”|

Proud to be an American!
It is the
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.
not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.
not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.
not the politician,
who has given us the right to vote.
the VETERAN who
salutes the Flag,
under the Flag.
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
Thank a serviceman/woman for their sacrifice for our country - I just did.
|I did, too - thank YOU, Dools!|
