Thank you for visiting. My thoughts & Feelings are my Own.

Here I will share my feelings about America and her Future.

Let it be known to all the World, I love all Humankind, however the poor actions of the few that take away the Freedom's of the many wear on my soul. I don't hate them I feel sad for their foolishness before God and humankind.

Those leaders who seek to 'Keep their Oaths of office' and those who seek only self glory, power, tyranny and the destruction of America as it was founded, hoping to turn it into a Dictatorship, Marxist or other state of Tyranny.

For a long while I was unsure of putting a blog together with my thoughts on this, however Truth must be shared, if not to Awake American's to their dangerous situation then to record the folly of the ways of the wicked who do exist in the leadership of our Nation, States, Counties, Towns. Sad that I must add this page.

"We often search for things in life, yet seldom do we find.

Those things in life that really matter, until we make the time." S.T.Huls

God Bless the Republic of America!

For every Fallen Hero, there is a Story...Military Families United Please Visit and remember

For every Fallen Hero,
there is a Story...
Volume 12, Newsletter 6 June 12, 2012
As we approach the launch of the new National Gold Star Family Registry website this summer, Military Families United is excited about bringing a new dimension to the stories of our Nation's Fallen Heroes.  Not only will the Registry have additional capabilities for Hero Tributes, but there will be more ways for Gold Star Families to connect and for all American's to learn about those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom on the battlefield.  From online campaigns to the parking lot of the Pentagon with Rolling Thunder on Memorial Day, Military Families United has been busy building awareness and sharing the stories of our Nation's Fallen Heroes!  
  
                                                                
Faces of the Fallen: First Online Memorial for Fallen Soldiers Plans Transformation into 21st Century 

Written by Ashley Bernardi
 

When most people visit a national war memorial, it can be hard for them to think about the specifics of the lives lost beyond the statues or names listed on a wall. The question becomes, who were these brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for their country? Now the nonprofit organization Military Families United has created a new online database that captures cherished memories of fallen soldiers in the form of photos, videos and tributes. The hope is that memories of those who perished in combat will live on in perpetuity.

Riding for Heroes with Rolling Thunder 2012 
Military Families United  was honored to participate in the 25th Annual Rolling Thunder rally and ride on Memorial Day weekend along side the Army's Survivor Outreach Survices.  Not only were we able to share the message of the National Gold Star Family Registry with the over 560,000 event attendees, but we were able to help raise awarness for the Gold Star Pin and all the other great programs and services in attendance such as Wreaths Across America and the Veteran's Crisis Line.  MFU Board Member Commander Kirk Lippold, the commander of the USS Cole when it was attached in 2000, was also the featured speaker on the National Mall following the conclusion of the ride. “This is my way of helping remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we as a nation enjoy,” said Lippold.

Highlighting Heroes: SSG Brandon F. Eggleston

Written by Alisa Moody, Gold Star Mother

My dearest son who stole my heart the moment you were born. You made me proud every step of the way, entertaining not only me but everyone around you with your wit, charisma, charm, daringness and adventurous spirit. I could not have loved you more, only shown you more often. Even though I've told you time and again how proud I am of you, words could barely touched the surface. Your love and commitment to your wife and your daughters was indescribable, and admirable. You taught me more than I ever taught you, you continue to teach me as I reflect back on all our time together and hear from your closest friends even more interesting and hilarious details.
