      Some think that with no military, there would be no wars.

      Our military protect their right to say such stupid things.

      And let’s think for a minute: a rational society values most those people who perform the most necessary services.

      So select from the following groups those people who perform the LEAST NECESSARY services:

      ambulance/rescue workers
      doctors and other medical personnel

      Now, look at our society today. Tell me which of the groups tends to get (at least in certain circles) the most publicity and the most money for the most bizarre behavior?

      I’ve made my point.

      OK, OK, I know it’s not a fair comment (95% of actors are not employed in their field at any one time, I’ve read), but still….

      Let us always remember our men and women of our military services.

      Veterans Day 2006

      Today, November 11, 2006, I was given cause to ride along in a local Veterans Day Parade on my motorcycle. The town playing host to the parade was Sanford, Florida a town not unlike Elyria/Lorain/Amherst or Boyertown/Royersford/Pottstown.

      The parade concluded down the main drag, ending at the newly dedicated Veterans Park with rests peacefully on Lake Monroe on the northern edge of Seminole County.

      The parade has your usual high school bands, local groups and every veterans group and fraternal group, which supports the veterans. There was a band that played musical tribute to the armed forces. All gave the Pledge of Allegiance and colors were presented.

      The mayor of Sanford, Ms. Linda Kuhn gave a very brief speech, which included these oft-heard remarks; …..

      “It’s the soldier, not the reporter who gives you the freedom of the press.

      It’s the soldier, not the poet who gives you the freedom of speech.

      It’s the soldier, not the campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate.

      It’s the soldier, who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped
      with the flag that allows the protester to burn the flag!”

      Following her remarks, some of the greater Orlando Veterans gave speeches asking us to be mindful of our fellow citizen. After all, might the elderly woman in the doctor’s waiting room may have been a nurse in WWI? The old man who acts as greeter at you local department store may have served in the Korean War. The gentle giant that sacks your groceries at the food mart may have the scars of a bayonet wound from hand to hand combat. The brave men and women today who are deployed overseas and at home to protect our freedoms, along with their older counter parts, gave sacrifice so that we may have freedoms.

      The last speaker recounted President Bush’s benediction yesterday at the Marine Museum, recalling a soldier by the name of Dunham who to protect his patrol, threw himself on a grenade back in 2004. This action saved the lives of his squad. Yesterday President Bush gave him post mortem the Medal of Honor. His family has paid the price too. The service concluded with a twenty one-gun salute, and taps.

      This marine would have been 25 this year. He will not know children, grand children, graduations and growing old with his loved ones. No he paid the ultimate sacrifice. My own grandfathers, father, uncle and brother were/are all veterans. May god give them and all veterans a special blessing. No matter your politics, your religions or your views on war, we are FREE today and SAFE today because of these brave men and women. I was proud to ride in the parade and give honor to those who served. If any of them have fallen, may we place their sins on the sands of time and remember their virtues for all time. May god bless our veterans today and always. May God bless America.
