We held our annual Memorial Day Rally when we hold signs with specific names of heroes we’ve known, neighbors, friends, and family members.
Above, Earnie, a Vietnam Veteran, holds a flag in honor of his son Tyler who is an Army Green Beret, currently in Afghanistan, and Dan, a Vietnam Veteran, salutes while we sing the National Anthem. Dan’s son is a US Marine, currently in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all our troops and their families.
Thanks to all who came out and made it happen. We will never forget our American heroes who gave up their tomorrows so that we could enjoy our todays.
Happy Birthday America! Our rallies are always full of red, white, and blue.
At the end we sang the Star Spangled Banner and said a prayer of thanks for our troops.
A group of youngsters and teens from Bible Baptist Church joined us as they were passing flyers for summer Bible school. They looked great in their costumes and many members of their church are in the military.
Have a great 4th of July! We are blessed to be Americans. God watch over all who serve to keep our country strong and free.
My daughter married her high-school sweetheart last night. She never looked more beautiful. It was a great wedding.
May God bless their marraige and may they always be as happy and in love as they were last night.
Lance Corporal Andrew Bowser, USMC, recently returned home from Afghanistan. Andrew, age 24, graduated from Bishop Shanahan HS (Downingtown, PA) in 2005. In 2008, he joined the Marines and got married. He and his wife Holly never got to take a honeymoon. He spent 6 months in Afghanistan and got home on Memorial Day weekend (he was away for 9 months total). He finally got a chance to take his wife for a long overdue honeymoon. They have 2 kids (1-yr and 2-yrs old). They were greeted with a flag line at the airport and given a motorcycle escort to the Marine Corps League in Downingtown for a surprise welcome home party. His father is a Vietnam Veteran and his wife prayed the rosary for her Marine son everyday.
WELCOME HOME! THANK YOU AND HOLLY SO MUCH FOR YOUR SERVICE AND SACRIFICE!
Nick and I went to New York to see Yankee Stadium. The Yankees are very supportive of our military.
They are only team that lets active duty military into the games for free. We met an Air Force Officer with his son and an Army soldier, home from Afghanistan, was there with his daughter.
