Three wars undermined by the socialists and their useful idiots both inside and outside our government.

Thanks, Ma and Ronnie; a touching remembrance.

NEVER FORGET

It has been my direct experience in Life that...

...the one thing The LOVE Itself needs more of in this world,

for GOD is LOVE,

...is more LOVE.

.

And that only comes when...

...people are FREE..!!!

.

Making American Troops who so selflessly fight to bring more Freedom and LOVE around the world,

and their loved ones who wait for them to come home ...or not...

...HOLY in GOD’s Eyes.

.

As they put a broad Smile on GOD’s Face in the Process.

Just for the LOVE of it..!!!

.

NEVER FORGET

Thanks for the Ping

""Keep up the fire," responded Larry James, 62, who commanded a platoon of Manchus near Cu Chi, Vietnam, until 1969." Amen brother.

"The two most unpopular American wars of the last century have found an intersection of sorts here in Washington,..." I didn't realize that WWI, WWII and Korea were more popular with the public.

President John F. Kennedy, 1961 - For those who fight for it, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

This Vietnam War Veteran was recently blessed to have the opportunity to personally thank my Alma Mater Rancho Alamitos High School (RAHS) students (VAQUEROS) on behalf of all our Alumni. This as an invited Guest Speaker at their Annual RAHS Student Awards Ceremony in June.

Thanking present day student VAQUEROS (Mascots-Spanish Ranch Cowboys of early California) for their lovingly hosting a warm on campus RAHS 50th Anniversary Day in May for all us Rancho Alumni of the last 50 years. Right where we all grew up next door to a now 53 year old Magic Kingdom DISNEYLAND.

Hey, this is pretty fun, huh..?

Ronnie, Some of us who never took part in combat have nothing but love and gratitude toward those who served in Vietnam (and shame at the politicians that stabbed them in the back), and those who serve now in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And no, I for one will NOT forget, barring infirmity.
