Let me add the
above.  Jonathan coming home from Afghanistan in 2009.  He is there
now.

 

The soldiers and
families miss each other when the soldier is deployed.

Let' s get this started ,NOW!  

So it will
be out there on the fourth!
 

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!  


KEEP IT LIT!!
KEEP
IT LIT!
 
For all of our other
military personnel, where ever 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
 
and

God Bless Our
Troops.


When you receive
this,
 
please stop for a
moment
and say a prayer for our
servicemen.
 
 
Of all the gifts you
could give a U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best
one.
