Remarks of these last few days. . .have struck us to our core

Posted By: MillRatUSMC aka Ricardo
Date: Friday - January 12,2018 08:56

Leading to questioning; is this the nation I swore to defend?
I'm not able to speak for my four uncles service in the U.S Army.
In World War II, one stood in and did service in Korea.
Three are gone only my uncle Herman remains.
We did not serve for any monetary award.
We did service as paying back to the nation of our birth.
I grew up with 'racism' but we did not blame all.
Serving in our beloved Corps, I knew there was more good.
Than just a few, just as now.
Men and women will speak out about these vulgar remarks.
Which do not display; who we are or the values we keep.
Today, the ambassador to Panama resigned.
Ricardo has copied & pasted the text below and will leave as worded;
US ambassador to Panama resigns, saying he can no longer serve under Trump administration. US Ambassador to Panama John Feeley, a career diplomat and former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, has resigned, telling the State Department he no longer feels able to serve President Donald Trump.
I see he still holding to his Marine Corps Core Values.
More than I can say for the leadership of this congress.

A thousand dreams have died
Thousand of dreams
Swirl in painful confusion
And America ask
Is this what dream
Are made of?
~ John Cory

WHY the above; I'm think of all American military lives.
These vulgar remarks has placed in harms way.


Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!

Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
