Today is Armed Forces Day! Thank a vet for what they have done, are doing, and will do to defend our United States of America!
Thanks to the media for all the publicity for this, just as they do for Earth Day and MLK Day.
God bless them.....one and all. <3
Armed Forces Day
“United in Strength”
Saturday, May 16, 2009
Yeah, what does the NYT have on it today?
here’s a snip from the past of a the defense link site
May 17, 1952, New York Times article: “It is our most earnest hope that those who are in positions of peril, that those who have made exceptional sacrifices, yes, and those who are afflicted with plain drudgery and boredom, may somehow know that we hold them in exceptional esteem. Perhaps if we are a little more conscious of our debt of honored affection they may be a little more aware of how much we think of them.”
A salute to our Armed Forces!
Dogpile Search Engine:
Dogpile Graphic here:
“Honor the troops!
We salute the men, women, and service animals serving
in the US Armed Forces.”
God Bless our servicemen and women.
About 50 people rallied in front of Westover Air Base in Chicopee, MA Saturday.
FReepers, 9/12 Project, Tea Party and Veterans.
And we got coverage on TV!
