My heart beats Red, White and Blue so I'd
like to tailor this page towards that patriotism. I hope you enjoy my
presentations as this page grows. I have placed another copy of my
patriotic web rings from the home page. Feel free to copy any of these
images. I retrieved many from Doc's Patriotic Graphics, Old Sarge, and
Raptor's Nest. The rest were procured from public domain. This
page is also very graphic intense, so if your on a dial-up connection, please
be patient and let the graphics load, stretch your legs, get a cup of coffee
or call a Vet and thank him or her.

If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life, And I had to start again with just my children and my wife, I'd thank my lucky stars to be living here today, 'Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away.
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free, And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me, And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A. From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee, Across the plains of Texas from sea to shining sea. From Detroit down to Houston and New York to L.A., There's pride in every American heart and it's time we stand and say: I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free, And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me, And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.
You may recall that I had some
links here to send packages and email to the troops - I removed them as the
DOD is discouraging this practice as a possible security risk. We just
need to pray for our men and women and remember them when they return home.
