Default Remember Them on the 4th of July


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 military personnel, where ever they may be,
please Support all of the troops defending our Country.
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 when you read this,
please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen.
Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Coast Guardsman or Marine,
prayer is the very best one.



THANKS, to all of our WOG members who wear the uniform of one our our Armed Forces, be it full time or on a part time basis!!

I don't take credit for this, most of it came from a retired US Serviceman who is my best friend.

You're welcome Ken,

It is almost that time of the year again, I got that from my best friend John Amos who some of you met at one of the early Myrtle Beach Rallies, that's him on the right in his red Marines jacket, he was a Navy "DOC" Medic assigned to a Marine unit in Vietnam and was severely injured by a land mine, you would remember him as he always shakes hands using his left hand, as his right side of his body is still peppered with shrapnel, I really look up to him and consider my 100% service connected disability just a drop in the bucket in comparison and I feel honored to call him my friend.
