-oHappy 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.
Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July
KEEP IT GOING TO YOUR FRIENDS, DON'T LET THE FLAME DIE OUT!
PLEASE KEEP THIS GOING
We must never forget who
Gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be
I watched the flag
Pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine
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 dhot 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
& God Bless Our Troops
