No amount of training has prepared them for what they must endure. And yet they stay...they obey, they endure, they fight on...they survive. When finally they return home, they are forever changed. Some outwardly, some in other ways.

Now we must do no less than thank and honor them for doing what others could not, and welcome them home as the heroes they have become. To do less diminishes us all.

Freedom is Not Free


I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
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 Mother's tears?

How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many foxholes were soldiers'
No, Freedom is not 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 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 at Arlington.
No, Freedom isn't free!

Remember this ..... and
               God Bless America

    "The Military Brat" The children of the Military member has been known for years as the Military Brat.  However, most are far from being brats. They are taught to be Independent, Loyal, and most of all flexible.  Thay have to be able to pack, move, and make new friends at the drop of a hat.  They give up any stability in on the home front due to short notice assignments and suprise TDYs.  They are a special breed of person and for that I pay tribute to your devotion to your family and your country.  Thank You for making your Military  member's duties easier to perform because of your understanding.
