I love this photo and the message on his jacket..."Not as lean,not as mean, but still a Marine."

God bless our military heroes...past, present and future. Some gave all, so we could enjoy the freedoms we have today. Never take our military for granted. Each and everyone of them have sacrificed so much, along with their families. Many are struggling today from mental and physical wounds that will never heal. While others, like the few remaining from our Greatest Generation, like my dad, are still with us and thrived after returning from war and helped build America into the great country we are today. Don't let their work and sacrifices be in vain. We should always strive to protect and defend our country from tyranny, from our enemies foreign and domestic and work to make America stronger and more independent.
America is a place of freedom and opportunities like no other country. This is one reason many come here seeking asylum, citizenship and opportunity. We are a land of opportunities, but we can not continue to grow and welcome others if we take our freedoms for granted and give up our security and economic opportunities to those who come here illegally or seek to do us harm. Americans must always come first! Our security must always come first! The rule of law should always prevail, we are a nation of laws, Constitutional rights and protections and those laws and rights should not be ignored, but defended! And if you don't appreciate our military and respect our Constitution...then you can leave the US!!
