WEST CHESTER PRO-TROOP RALLY – 4/30/11

Filed under: Rallies — Rich Davis @ 3:35 pm

Outstanding rally. The highlight was meeting two of America’s finest. Kevin, an active-duty sailor stationed in Maryland was visiting his girlfriend in West Chester. She is going into the Air Force in a month.

They were walking by and heard us singing the National Anthem and saying a prayer for our troops. Kevin said, “I’m in the Navy and I wanted to say thanks for doing this”. It looked like he had tears in his eyes. So we took this picture and thanked them for their service. We are always thrilled and honored when our troops stop to say hello.

You can see Kevin and his girlfriend in the background of these pictures. They were walking by on the other side of the street when they heard us singing the Star Spangled Banner.

Thank You Troops! Thank You Military Families! God bless them, protect them, and guide them to victory.

Some of the sights from Camp Lejeune, home of Marines since 1941. So many of our heroes have trained here and been deployed around the world to fight. It felt like sacred ground.

A SHEEPDOG VISITS FT DIX – 4/7/11

Filed under: Heroes — Rich Davis @ 5:12 am

I went to Ft Dix this weekend to hang out with some of our heroes from all over the United States.

Most of the ones I met had recently returned from overseas. They are deployed all over the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan. All branches of service are on base.

Lots of “Military Pride” items can be purchased. Its a great place to shop.

It was great to see the troops relaxing and enjoying being back in the states. They sacrifice so much for us and we are forever grateful and proud of them.

Thank You Troops, God bless you. You are the very best of all of us.

WEST CHESTER PRO-TROOP RALLY – 4/2/11

Filed under: Rallies — Rich Davis @ 10:15 am

Terrific rally, like the 4th of July without the fireworks. We met a lot of new people. Thanks to all who came out and made it happen.

One of the highlights was meeting these military family members. Dave is an Army Veteran and his 2 sons are in the Marines, he was with his wife and daughter (who is a school teacher), he said, “All my kids are productive, doing important things.” The other guy has 2 nephews in the Navy, both on ships, both graduated from the US Naval Academy. Then 2 Marines drove by and gave us a thumbs up.

After the rally we went to a local pizza parlor and met Debbie, a Navy mom. She lives in Chester Springs. Her son Jeff is currently onboard the USS Pearl Harbor (LSD-52) homeported in San Diego. He graduated from Downingtown East High School and joined the Navy 5 years ago.

At the end of the rally we passed the “Support The Troops” coin to Nick. It’s a great coin, shows all the branches of the service. We give it to a different person every week.

As our troops fight the fight for the freedom, they are not alone. We stand behind them. May God bless them and their families, protect them, and guide them to victory.
