Not for fame or reward; not for place or for rank; not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity; but in simple obedience to duty, as they understood it. These men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died.
Todays Memorial Day post is dedicated to our countrys fallen heroes; the 1.4 million men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in wars waged across centuries in order to preserve the principles of freedom and liberty.
And to brighten your day I offer a couple rays of light into our sometimes very cloudy skies: two amateur videos that represent tiny glimpses of why America is the last, best hope of the world. The first is Gary Sinese performing with the Lt. Dan Band; proving that not everyone in the entertainment business is dedicated to fundamentally transforming America.
God Bless the USA!!!

Next, young Hunter Haden with his first grade class from Pepperell Primary in Lindale, GA performing Lee Greenwoods anthem. I should note that Pepperell is a public school!! God bless flyover country.
Warning: this young man is more notable for his unbounded patriotism than his vocal skills, butt the cuteness factor supersedes his not-ready-for-Carnegie Hall creds. Plus, it provides real HOPE for Americas future.

"God Bless The USA" (Lee Greenwood)
If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife
I'd thank my lucky stars to be livin' here today
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away
And I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the USA
What difference does it make? you ask?
Pretty much all the difference in the world.

Why not just post it here instead of pimping for hits?
Well, it's alive and well in half the country. The Gibsmedat half couldn't care less...just keep holding out their hands and demanding the 53% give them free stuff.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
