The Soldier

 You are asked to go to the store by your  parents. You  don't.  
He does exactly what he is told even if it puts his life in  danger.
You stay at home and watch TV.
He takes whatever time he is given to call,  write  home, sleep, and  eat.
You crawl into your soft bed, with down  pillows, and  get  comfortable.
He tries to sleep but gets woken by mortars  and  helicopters all night  long. 


Very True

It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to 'illegal' aliens who have never contributed, where does
that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our working


Here SHE is,
the USS New York, made from the World Trade Center !

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center

It is the fifth in a new class of warship -- design ed fo r missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-read y Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite , LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept. 9, 2003 , "those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a spiritual moment for everybody there."

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up." "It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down. They can' t ke ep us down. We're going to be back."

The ship's motto?
"Never Forget"

Please keep this going so everyone can see what we are made of in this country
