Veteran's Day 2019

Lady Liberty - beacon to all the huddled masses yearning to be free. Symbol of so much along with our U.S. flag.  Gift from France, our ally

Cheers to all the veterans who have served our nation. Men and Women who volunteer to work, fight,-here and abroad - alone on a mission or alongside our allies. All to keep America free.

my opinion - respect for our allies is very key to the safety of our military so that they can serve their tours and return home safe to be veterans.

The real and lasting victories are those of peace and not of war - Ralph Waldo Emerson 1860

  2. It is time to respect the message of the Statue of Liberty and open up the southern border to those immigrants. I don't remember any qualifier like, "Welcome if you have the right paperwork."
