How the Vietnam vets were treated.

Poetic Impressions

Reflections in a mirror.


Within the hearts of young boys are passion, honor and respect for our veterans. Here is the expression of one young man's deep conviction for the sacrifice laid by our veterans and the gifts that were forged on the battlefield.

The Little Guy

Army PVT Dustin Gross of Mount Sterling, Ky., paid the ultimate price in Afghanistan on May 7, 2012. Thinking of my great nephew, writing and remembering this fun-loving, always happy little guy, and giving thanks to all our men and women who have given all and all who are now serving. Thank you! I had scribbled these thoughts on Dustin in 2012.

A sober lesson from the Korean War

Some Korean War remains have returned home. But there is a deeper lesson to be learned in how to win a war, or how to try to fight a war when one hand is tied behind your back. It is better to not fight than to fight halfheartedly and not count the cost before you start. The Korean War was the first war in United States history that was fought without using all the weapons of war available in our arsenal. We foolishly sent many servicemen into harm's way when we could have used our nuclear bombs instead of the nucleus of our brave servicemen. Learn a lesson from the Word of God given by the wisest strategist who ever lived. Luke 14:31-33 King James Version (KJV) 31 "Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple."
