Happy Memorial Day 2009

Stars And Stripes Forever

- John Philip Sousa

Hurrah for the flag of the free!
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right It waves forever.
--The bottom picture are grave markers from a local cemetary. They include the Spanish-American War, The Revoloutionary War, Civil War, World War I and World War II. We didn't find any Vietnam War markers or any from any current wars but then the cemetary is a quite old one. Thanks to all those veterans who have served our country. Thanks to the current men and women soldiers who are serving now. A special thanks to all the families that spent their time awaiting their return. God Bless America!!
