    A song from WWII. “PRAISE THE LORD AND PASS THE AMMUNITION. ALL ABOARD, WERE ON A MIGHTY MISSION AND WE WILL ALL BE FREE”!
    Never more true today than during WWII.
    LOCK AND LOAD BROTHER. Keep the powder dry!

    I love this guy. This is what the entire nation should be doing. These,usually young, people gave their lives, their whole futures, the security of their families, for you. Who will care for their orphans, their widows/widowers and their aging parents? The government? Right, like that will happen.

    Incredible. It’d be nice to find out how to help this amazing American
    with some kind of place to send donations to help him on with his mission.
    Mr. Flagman you are beyond words! Keep up the good work.
