Happy 4th of
July!....

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD,

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!


For All of our other military personnel, wherever they may Be Please Support all of the troops defending our Country.

And God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.
Thanks To them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July

We must never forget who Gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be Eternally grateful.

I watched the flag Pass by one day, It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine Saluted it, And then he stood at ease..

I looked at Him in uniform so young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square And eyes alert He'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men Like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign Soil
How many mothers' tears?

How many pilots' planes
Shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers'
Graves?
No, freedom isn't free

I heard the sound of Taps
One night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler

Play And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times

That Taps had meant 'Amen,'

When a flag had draped a Coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the Children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and Husbands
With interrupted lives.

I Thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea

Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.



Enjoy Your Freedom & God Bless Our Troops

Please stop for a moment
And Say a Prayer for our servicemen.

Of all the gifts you could give A US Soldier, Prayer is the very best One

You said it, Robert. Everyone go out and have a good time this weekend. Our freedom was hard-earned, so we should all enjoy it and support our service men and women whenever we get the chance. :thumbsup:

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
-George Orwell

A veteran- whether active duty, retired, or National Guard or reserve- is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Prior USN

God Bless all of our troops.

It is the Soldier, not the minister; Who has given us freedom of religion. It is the Soldier, not the reporter; Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the Soldier, not the poet; Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer; Who has given us freedom to protest. It is the Soldier, not the politician; Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Nice post! It's very easy to get caught up in the "another day off from work" spill, thanks for the reminder of why we celebrate the 4th.

May God bless America and our troops!

Godspeed on your trip back to us. :bowdown:
