Happy  4th of
July!.... 
.....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. 


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

When 
You receive this, 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
