    BZ to the all the scouts-boys and girls, leaders and their parents. Let me tell you:)–you want to help/honor our Veterans who are buried at Calverton, Long Island, NY by placing/removing flags (a week later)—you got to get there early. =)

    Young patriots so dedicated– an inspiration. Sincerest gratitude for a job done well done. Many other people/patriots/families/friends there too.

    You walk among those who were blessed with a long life–some who served in one or more wars, others who gave their lives in the prime of their youth in service to protect and defend our country–puts it all into perspective, goes to the heart/soul…what a honor, and humbling privilege to be an American. Freedom is not free–it cost much and dearly. Don’t take it for granted. Teach yourself and teach your children about our Founders, Constitution, rights and the men and women who stand at the tip of the spear to protect and defend you, me, and our way of life.
