I don't forward a lot of things, but this came from Geno and I think it's
very appropriate for any day, but especially today.  Today is the annual
visit to the VA Hospital to visit with the vets and pass out goodies to
them.  We can never do too much to honor our Vets.God bless our Vets and God
bless America!

Mooresville, NC. Small town USA at its best.

Let's go inside for a few moments. How does 
"smoke" get in your eyes when no one is smoking? 
Many vets have been to that wall and cried 
With their hand in that same position.

You don't have to drive thousands of miles 
To say thank you and get a glimpse of what 
Our Veterans have done for us.

These guys didn't receive these decorations
 For "showing up".
cid:7.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

And who's dream was this
cid:8.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com
Mr. Robert Warren, Chopper Pilot in Nam .
Died three years ago from complications of Agent Orange.
He made it his mission to "Welcome all Veterans".
First "Welcome" some from Vietnam had ever received.
They came today to honor this man and his dream.

(I don't have to list names because I'm not 
A real reporter), just a thankful citizen. 
And I am thankful. They remember. 
(How could they ever forget)
cid:10.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

This was a very special day for them and us.
cid:11.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

The memories can be painful.
cid:12.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

All of their rides tell a story. (look at the tag)
cid:13.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

Some paid a higher price than others.
cid:14.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

We can learn a lot from these men.
cid:15.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

Like, respect for our Flag and National Anthem. 
But more than that. A love for God and Country 
That can't be hidden. It shines through in their 
Lives and their service to others.
cid:16.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com

That example was not lost on the 
Mooresville HS ROTC Color Guard.

The passing of the Guard.

cid:22.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com
I don't know these guys, 
But I owe them, and I love them.
cid:23.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com
Lots of "smoke in the room".
Thank you Veterans.
Small town USA . . . . I think not.
On a side note . . . 
Some of you have aged a lot more gracefully than others 
cid:24.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com
Oh, and my favorite ride . . . 
cid:25.1648250890 at web163601.mail.gq1.yahoo.com
GOD BLESS AMERICA ! And GOD BLESS 
OUR VETS, PAST AND PRESENT, 
That we still have an America !

Don't let "any" government take that away 
>From us, and our future generations!
