Some of my family have fought in almost all the wars since before we won our independence. Two of my Great Grandparents came here because we are the greatest country.
I am so thankfull daily for all the Veterans and current Military people who are keeping us free.

this is the day that makes me hate living on post. They shoot fireworks for hours on end and the drinking it outrageous! However, I am proud of this country even with its poor economy and politics spiraling out of control! I am proud to be an American!

Yes we do! This nation is the world's greatest experiment in true Freedom and Liberty. We have fought hard to keep it. And like you, I feel it is slipping away, but we can get it back. We just have to return to her roots and understand that the founding Fathers were men of great foresight.
