God Bless this awesome Country.

I could go into a serious rant but you folks have been really kind to me and I don't want to make the best Forum in the country a sounding board for non-Truck stuff.

Let's just say that the Ford Truck folks I know, love America more than most....

Have a Merry, 4 July, you lot!

My Flag Flies Year Round!



Remember the 4th for those who gave up their freedom and lives for the generations to come, and pass this on to your next generation!


Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who
signed the Declaration of independence ?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and
tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army;
another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of
the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes,
and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, Nine were
farmers and large plantation owners, men of means, well educated, But they
signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty
would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships
swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to
pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his
family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his
family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty
was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton,
Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British
General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He
quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was
destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his
wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13
children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to
waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to
find his wife dead and his children vanished.

Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently
thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

What have you done for Your Country lately?

The Flag is up !!!

Hi all,
you guys have said it all. It's raining here but it's an all weather flag and it is flying.

The post about the signers of the decalartion was a sobering bit of reading. It got me to thinking about something. Right after I retired, I traced my ancestry trough my Paternal line back to a fellow who came here in 1764. It was interesting to note that he served and fought against the British in the revolution, and every generation since him has served and fought in some conflict for this country up to and including this senseless mess were in now, and has had at least one or more persons survive each conflict. We're not famous or note-worthy, but I do think this is something to be proud of. One other note, the son of the guy who came here in 1764 fought in the War of 1812 and also was on the Lewis and Clarke expidition. Today I will be thinking of all these men, although I only knew a few.

Later Folks...

Happy 4th of July to you guys

I will add my thoughts on the fourth of July. I to have an ancestor that fought for our country in the Revolutionary War.
The quote by the Colonel really puts what it is in perspective what it took to make this wonderful country we live in. As I write this, my nine year old daughter is swimming in the pool, enjoying freedoms, she doesn't know she has yet.

God Bless America....
Jeff

I wish all a Happy and Safe 4th also.Thanks to all the folks that make it possible to stay at home relaxed or go to church Sunday and not expect someone to kick the door in and harm you. There are a lot of folks overseas expecting the next round of artilery to take them out. OK I'll shut up now.
later, Mike
