HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL!
To those of you who have served in the Armed Forces, I bid you a very warm THANK YOU! If it weren't for our soldiers, our country would not be as safe/secure as it is. I personally feel that the present administration is NOT doing a good job of securing our borders. He is spreading our Army way too thin, sending them everywhere---including where Congress did not get to vote on!
If he would keep our National Guard in OUR country, it would be better. Our border states (Texas, AZ,Calif....)need protection from the armed drug gangs and the illegals trying to get into our country. They drain our economy. They get free medical treatment at hospitals when we citizens must pay. They get free schooling and even college when our citizens must pay. They take jobs---regardless of you who feel our citizens would NOT take those jobs due to a low wage---and leave our citizens unemployed...and on the unemployment payroll. They cost all of us citizens in many ways.
Anyway, if our National Guardsmen could patrol our borders, it would be a big improvement. It is a disgrace when our own government puts up signs telling us citizens that we better not drive/go through certain areas of our OWN COUNTRY because it is too dangerous!!! Geesh!!! Get help here!!!
Obama disrespects the governors of AZ and TX. He laughs at us. He could care less about protecting us, in my opinion.
I applaud those who try to defend our country.

I applaud all our military who supported and defended the USA, many of them giving their lives or limbs in doing so. When I was first married, we were in the Army for four years. My Ex went to DaNang, Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. We wives, as the husbands went through flight school, were also groomed to be officers' wives. We attended teas, brunches, other meetings to learn the ways of the Military. We gained strong feelings of patriotism. The military family is a strong,close-knit family. We came from all parts of our nation and leaned on each other for tips, support, friendship...it did not matter what color skin you had. It was a type of life one does not find in the "other world".
We had friends who were captured, tortured, killed---all in defending our country and what it stood for. When our husbands were in Vietnam, we waiting wives had to deal with idiots who were against the war and thus, were angry toward us. I still remember to this day: I was wearing my husband's flight jacket (as I often did,because I was proud). I came out from the store and was going to my car....a man who must have been then in his '60's or more looked at me and called me a long-haired hippie....that was the nicest thing he said. Yet , here was my Ex over there fighting so that old man could be free. geesh....how rude!!!
In my subdivision, a realty company came by on early Friday morning and put flags in front of each driveway. It looked beautiful....later that day, I found that MY flag was gone.....someone had taken it! WHY??? I may have been one of the few who really APPRECIATED that flag on my lawn!!! The flag was not there long enough for me to be able to read the card attached, to be able to thank the company for the kind gesture.

Well, this has not been a crafting message but one of my own opinion. May you enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend!
