    Happy Birthday FellowAmericans.... Enjoy the Holiday !!!

    I will proudly be wearing my BOSTON STRONG t-shirt today in the left coast Bay Area, San Francisco !!!

     

    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 today & everyday and  God Bless Our Troops.

    Thank you to all those who have served and those who are serving !!!


    SEMPER FI !!!
