Enjoy Veterans Day. We would want it that way. Many may not even realize the meaning of the day some will even take it for granted but nonetheless it’s a day named for us but if you look at it, it’s really about you and our country. Not only is Nov 10 Veterans day, it’s the Marine Corps Birthday and trust us, we are honored to share the day.
Like that in the US, throughout the UK it is Remembrance Day Nov 10 and on Nov 11thin Australia and Ireland. I mention these as well not only because I have met some of the best warriors from these countries but some of the finest people as well.
Wherever you are, know we appreciate the day and hope you join us in sharing the honor in respecting those who have served their country. Your warriors are still at war, least we never forget!
Every year on this day I do a post like the thousands of other bloggers & news pages. However, we should remember those that were murdered that day and those that died avenging America in the years to come. One thing that gets me is every day on Sep 11 you hear about “attacks on the anniversary.”
Here is a question you have to ask yourself. Do you get ready for your first day of work, school “whatever” the day of the event? No, you prepare yourself and work up to it. So I ask why do we always fear that there is going to be an “attack” on the anniversary of 9/11? I answer you, because we haven’t prepared for it and it’s a legit concern.
This administration of “no plan” should scare the hell out of you. What if we said “we don’t have a plan for the bombing of Pearl Harbor?” That wouldn’t have flown for shit. In past years there was pre-work done to prevent such attacks. Counter strikes to put the still thriving enemy on their heels. The past year especially, this hasn’t been done. The “big government” wants to take more of your responsibility but on the other hand, isn’t protecting you. How does that make you feel? I pray there is no counter attack this 9-11 because change & hope isn’t a “plan”. God Bless America, we could use his help. Time for a Cigar
Yes, Sept 11 attack anniversary is right around the corner. The young may not remember and the old try to forget it. It is one generations Pearl Harbor attack that they will always remember and remember what they were doing when they heard the news.
THIS is why your Marines will walk through fire for America and its people. This is why we continue to deploy time and again, spend time away from our families because this is a great American who "Gets it" - Time for a C-Gar
This Motto Monday post was starting with one of the warriors who was wounded in the same area I was about the same time Then it took a different turn. This Motto Monday I ask everyone to simply stop while reading this post and remember those that have given all for this country and those that are battling obstacles back home as amputees.
Grab yourself a cup of coffee and sit down and watch how a British pilot and crew fly in to rescue a wounded warrior. Once they fly into the “hot zone” and prepare for takeoff, they come under heavy fire. FYI, there isn’t any armament on CH47 helos and bullets tend to pass right through them much like Marine Corps CH46, Hueys and even Cobras. Great focus by the pilot! It’s a shame he probably passes several people today on the street and they have no idea of his or his crews sacrifice. Time for a C-Gar
