Armed Forces Day 2007-------Thank You!!


Comments:
Thanks for that RW!

I like this quote from JFK"

"... Our Servicemen and women are serving throughout the world as guardians of peace--many of them away from their homes, their friends and their families. They are visible evidence of our determination to meet any threat to the peace with measured strength and high resolve. They are also evidence of a harsh but inescapable truth--that the survival of freedom requires great cost and commitment, and great personal sacrifice."

President John F. Kennedy, 1963


I wish we could stir up a bit of that "resolve" he spoke of.
 
Buy Danish,

It would be nice if today's politicians remembered the JFK speech about paying any price and bearing any burden too.
 
RW:

You haven't grown an inch in that picture since last year.

An humble contribution from R. Robicheau --

Today as before, our brave do fight
For a land they love, a flag so right


The pride of our country, yes they are
The strength of our nation, best by far


Just as our brave from each war gone by
They march for us proudly, flag held high


From all over this land they come to serve
They’re taught by the best, this they deserve


When troops give their all, the world does see
Whether serving on land, in the air, or at sea


The pride from this country, march through war
With home drawn strength, held deep in their core


Our best are so awesome, their loved ones well know
May God guide their journey where they - for us - go


What these brave must have is support from their own
The love from their people, firm thankfulness shown


Our greatest achievement is that we’re still free
Please take time and ponder who caused this to be

 
Perseverance and Patience.


"The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't." ~Henry Ward Beecher
