    Memorial Day - Thank You




    Lee Greenwood says its best :

    "And I'm proud to be an American,
    where at least I know I'm free.
    And I won't forget the men who died,
    who gave that right to me.
    ~Lee Greenwood "


    For those who wish to say a stupid remark or something stupid in general. DON'T!! I will not tolerate it and the mods will delete your post and issue infraction points. I will be enforcing the forum rules in here very strongly.

    I came across this article. This is a very good read! The picture that I posted is associated with this article. Article reads :

    On September 5th, 2008, I was a passenger on an evening Delta flight from Atlanta to Boston. It was a routine flight…..until we landed at Logan Airport. As we approached our gate, there were approximately twenty-five Massport vehicles (fire trucks, police, security) with their lights flashing and the drivers were standing outside of their vehicles saluting our plane. There was a group of Marines, also saluting, and holding the American flag at full staff. I also noticed a family on the tarmac, holding each other and hugging. The captain then announced that he had a request that all passengers remain seated until he escorted a Marine on board who was bringing “home” a fallen comrade. You could have heard a pin drop. A very young Marine, holding a folded American flag, was led to the door and then around the outside of the plane by our Delta captain. As they disembarked, the entire plane applauded; there were tears in most passengers’ eyes. A year ago, I had read of something similar to this in an email circulating but had never experienced it. The cargo door was then opened and this Marine went up the ramp to drape the coffin in our American flag. During this entire 15 minute process, not one person spoke on our plane and the salutes outside our plane remained frozen in place. It was such a private moment; yet, such a public moment. It was powerful. A verse from the song “God Bless The USA” resonated in my head … “And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free; And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me…” I have never been more proud to be an American. The absolute respect and reverence shown to this Marine who lost his life while serving our country is something that will stay with me forever.

    I am proud to be an American and proud to support our troops and our fallen. If it wasn't for all of you, we couldn't enjoy our country the way it is now. I couldn't be more happy with any military as I am with you all! There isn't enough thank yous in the world, I'll just add to the list. Thank You!

    It's the Soldier, not the reporter
    Who has given us the freedom of the press.
    It's the Soldier, not the poet,
    Who has given us the freedom of speech.
    It's the Soldier, not the politicians
    That ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
    It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
    Who serves beneath the flag,
    And whose coffin is draped by the flag.

    Lets not forget about the men and women who are still serving in this war as we speak. We tend to forget about this war that we are still technically fighting. Whether some people think its a stupid war or a deserved war. Our men and women are still over there fighting for our protection.

    Hey all.. I should have done this sooner, but after the time has passed this only becomes harder to deal with. I had a little brother...He was twice the man I was and did 10x the things I have done. On June 2,2007 he was killed in action, in Iraq. I hate the bastards who sent him there and fear for all our men and women over there.

    If you are in ohio or would like to make the trip please check out these links. Bike or car welcome.

    We are trying to raise money for a scholarship fund so that single parent children like my brother dont have to join the army for college asst.


    I am not one of those people to make this stuff up either. If you need proof before you believe me, google Keith Nepsa, I am his brother Josh...hence the screen name JNepsa.

    Thank you Keith for giving me what I have today, and thank you for Jacob.....
