"Land of the free ... because of the brave!"
New York Spectator. August 23, 1831
“ The court of common pleas of Chester county, [New York] rejected a witness who declared his disbelief in the existence of God. The presiding judge remarked that he had not before been aware that there was a man living who did not believe in the existence of God; that this belief constituted the sanction of all testimony in a court of justice: and that he knew of no cause in a Christian country where a witness had been permitted to testify without such belief.

A LETTER FROM BOOT CAMP....
Dear Ma and Pa,
am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine
Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up
quick before all of the places are filled.
was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m.
but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you
do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs
to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay.
We all have to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water & no out house!
is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon,
fruit,etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried
eggplant, pie and other regular food. Tell
Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on
coffee. Their food plus yours holds you until noon when you get fed
again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.
We go on
"route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to
harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A
"route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city
guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.
is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a
lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just
ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.
next one will kill Walt and Elmer with laughter... I keep getting
medals for shooting & I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big
as a chipmunk's head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like
the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable
and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in
we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle
with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real
easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the
best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver
Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm
only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.
Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.
Your loving daughter, Stephanie Marie

A FEW GREAT COMMENTS FROM A FEW OF THE FINEST!
I thought that hat looked good on the web it is awesome, thanks man!!! I have been retired almost 16 years and am always looking for quality Navy stuff because I'm proud of my service and proud of the Navy. You represent everything that is good about shopping with other veterans. Service was prompt the hat is excellent it arrived in perfect condition & the sticker & business card was a totally unexpected treat. I will be a multiple repeat customer & I will turn my buddies onto your e-bay store. I regret you only get 80 characters to leave feedback on ebay. I did my best there for you! You deserve it!

Cemetery Escort Duty
WARNING....DO NOT READ.....YOUR MONITOR WILL
just wanted to get the day over with and go down to Smokey's. Sneaking a
look at my watch, I saw the time, 1655. Five minutes to go before the
cemetery gates are closed for the day. Full dress was hot
in the August sun. Oklahoma summertime was as bad
as ever--the heat
and humidity at the same level--both too high.
saw the car pull into the drive, '69 or '70 model Cadillac Deville,
looked factory-new. It pulled into the parking lot at a snail's pace.
An old woman got out so slow I thought she was paralyzed; she had a cane
and a sheaf of flowers--about four or five bunches as best I could
couldn't help myself. The thought came unwanted, and left a slightly
bitter taste: 'She's going to spend an hour, and for this old Marine, my
hip hurts like hell and I'm ready to get out of here right now!' But
for this day, my duty was to assist anyone coming in.

along, we might make it to Smokey's in time.

middle-aged man with a small pot gut and half a limp, in Marine
full-dress uniform, which had lost its razor crease about thirty minutes
after I began the watch at the cemetery.
stopped in front of her, halfway up the walk. She looked up at me with
an old woman's squint.
'Ma'am,may I assist you in any way?'
took long enough to answer.

'My pleasure, ma'am.'
Well, it wasn't too much of a lie.
looked again. 'Marine, where were you stationed?'
' Vietnam, ma'am. Ground-pounder. '69 to '71.'
looked at me closer. 'Wounded in action, I
see. Well done, Marine. I'll be as quick as I can.'

I'm 85-years-old and I can tell a lie from a long way off. Let's get
this done. Might be the last time I can do this. My name's Joanne
Wieserman, and I've a few Marines I'd like to see one more time.'
'Yes, ma 'am. At your service.'
headed for the World War I
section, stopping at a stone. She picked one of the flowers out of my
arm and laid it on top of the stone. She murmured something I couldn't
quite make out. The name on the marble was Donald S.
Davidson, USMC: France 1918.
turned away and made a straight line for the World
section, stopping at one stone. I saw a tear slowly tracking
down her cheek. She put a bunch on a stone; the name was Stephen
X.Davidson, USMC, 1943.
went up the row a ways and laid another bunch on a stone, Stanley
Wieserman, USMC, 1944.
paused for a second. 'Two more, son, and we'll be done'

ma'am. Take your time.'
looked confused. 'Where's the Vietnam section, son? I
seem to have lost my way.'

before she found the ones she wanted. She placed a bunch on Larry
Wieserman, USMC, 1968,
and the last on Darrel
Wieserman, USMC, 1970.
She stood there and murmured a few words I
still couldn't make out.
son, I'm finished. Get me back to my car and you can go home.'
Yes, ma'am. If I may ask, were those your kinfolk?'
paused. 'Yes, Donald

over to Kevin, waiting by the car.
'Get to the 'Out' gate quick. I have something I've got to do.'
started to say something, but saw the look I gave him. He broke the
rules to get us there down the service road. We beat her. She hadn't

final thought on my part, let me share a favorite prayer: 'Lord,
our servicemen and women safe, whether they serve at home or overseas.
Hold them in your loving hands and
protect them as they protect us.'
all keep those currently serving and those who have gone before in our
thoughts. They are the reason for the many freedoms we enjoy.
