    Wreaths Across America

    Amazing the power of the internet. This had been done quietly for 15 years, until it started going around the internet like crazy. Hopefully all of the volunteers who showed up this year will make it a habit and not a one time thing.

    If you haven't visited Arlington, you really should, it was a very moving experience for me and my family. Watching the changing of the guard at the Tomb of The unknown Soldier is something that should be seen by all.

    I was incredibly PO'd at the younger crowd who were talking on cell phones and laughing during the entire thing. No respect for the sacrifices made by so many to ensure the rights and freedoms we enjoy today.

    I would have waited until the ceremony was over, of course, but I'm afraid I would have "lost my cool" with these morons. There's no excuse for this reprehensible behavior.

    Great videos, Mike. Thanks for posting them.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Too often seen, no respect for anything by the punks. In my world, love the U.S. or get out.

    Well, there is no doubt that
    this idiot now knows what is expected of him!! I sincerely hope he soiled himself upon seeing this hard charging, squared away Soldier preparing to show him the error of his ways...
