Kitty,

Did you know that it is now legal for a veteran to render a hand salute when the flag passes by or at any other time when civilians would place their hands over their heart?

Our Veterans organizations ganged up on Congress last year and got this privilege turned into law.

Never saw this before. It gave me chills.

Popeye...I can't even imagine how much I'd freak if I saw someone trying to burn the flag. I can't handle it when I see people sitting down for the National Anthem or not putting their hands on their heart (Mr. BO) or worse, TALKING through it.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. --Ephesians 6:12

Thank you for posting this. I had seen it before, but without the commentary. It brought tears to my eyes. I am sending it on to everyone on my list especially the young.

Yes, I remember. The fall of Saigon to communism was still fresh in our memories, and we needed a few bright spots and a little good news. Thank you, Rick Monday!

Thank you, Major.

In this day and age it's great to remind the many young people who never say it. I did not see the game live that day but heard it on the radio, sent and still does, send chills up and down my spine. He was interviewed last year while the Dodgers were playing the Cubs, is still very humbled by all the attention he gets even to this day.

I think Congressmen should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors.

Yes, I remember.

I grew up listening to the Brooklyn Dodgers on the radio. They were my team.

I lived in Southern California, and when they came to Chavez Ravine I got to go see them in person. I was in baseball heaven.

I was watching the game on television when it happened, after I had returned from Vietnam. I was furious, FURIOUS at those two traitors. If I had been at the game, I may very well have jumped on the field and gone after them.

I wasn't, but it took my DW, herself a baseball fan, about 45 minutes to get me to set back down.

Oh yes, I remember.

Thank You, do not remember this, but glad to watch.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

Thomas Jefferson
