GOD BLESS the USA
« on: July 04, 2019, 06:51:03 AM »
Hello SSS,

Took this photo during my tour of duty in Vietnam in August 1968 . . .  on Firebase #25 with the Cambodian Mountains in the background . . . I was a grunt back then . . . saw the rainbow early one morning and positioned myself on the Hill so that the rainbow appeared to fall on the American Flag . . . a once in a lifetime photo . . . GOD BLESS the USA  ;D

Thanks, Two Flints:

Photo speaks for us. SYMBOLISM matters.
Suggest that we all save that photo!

Above all, you have been a good shipmate.

Very Respectfully,

Hello all,

My photo - GOD BLESS the USA represents how I feel about my Country . . . and why I volunteered for assignment in Vietnam so many years ago.  No better place to live your life to the fullest than the USA.

What's going on today really upsets me. I can't understand why so many people have such a depraved and hostile attitude towards the Constitution and everything that is AMERICA.

I have an American Flag, a Vietnam Veterans Flag and a Betsy Ross flag displayed 24/7 and every night they can be seen illuminated by my solar lights.

Two Flints,

Thanks in so many ways for sharing your photo.  You are a good and dedicated moderator, also IMO.  I totally agree with your post.

Happy 'Independence Day', to all who care and understand it significance.

Hoping everyone has a Holiday filled with good cheer, and a chance to reflect on how great America is, despite it's warts and scars.
