National Medal of Honor Day

A brilliant reader pointed out that I posted the Medal of Honor Day post on April 25 – when the day was actually March 25…I’d like to say I was testing you all to see if you were paying attention.  But I can’t.  It was a mistake.
--------------
The United States Congress has designated March 25th of each year as NATIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR DAY, a day dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients. (Public Law 101-564) Conceived in the State of Washington, this holiday should be one of our most revered. Unfortunately all too many Americans are not even aware of its existence.

WHY MARCH 25th?

The date of March 25th was chosen to highlight this special day because it was on March 25 (1863) that the first Medals of Honor were presented...to six members of Andrews' Raiders. If you haven't read the story you can follow...[this link] THE FIRST PRESENTATION to read about that historic day.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

National Medal of Honor day is celebrated in some communities, however for the most part the occasion comes and goes with little notice. As a patriotic American there are a few things YOU can do to commemorate this day:

- FLY YOUR FLAG with pride and patriotism on this day.

- REMEMBER OUR HEROES. As a gesture of your appreciation, why not take just a few moments in the week prior to National Medal of Honor Day to mail a "Thank You" card to one of our living Medal of Honor recipients. You can find a list of the living as well as information on writing to them among the pages of this site.

- INFORM YOUR LOCAL MEDIA. Most newspapers aren't even aware that this special day exists. Why not tip your local media to the occasion. Before you do, check out our database for Medal of Honor recipients from your city and state as well as any who might be buried in your city. This information can give your media a "local angle" that can increase the probability that they will consider doing a story to remind Americans of our heroes.

- Consider doing something in your local schools, or even on a civic level, if there is a Medal of Honor recipient living near your location. Visit our site on SCHOOL IDEAS for more information on school assemblies.

- If there is a Medal of Honor recipient buried in your home town, get a school class, scout troop, or other youth organization to "adopt a grave site". You can read in our SCHOOL IDEAS pages how one school in Pueblo has used just such a program as a part of their Social Studies program.

***You should also notice I post Medal of Honor Recipients a couple times per week on the right-hand margin of this blog.

Should Obama Send Troops to the U.S-Mexico Border?

"Their (troops) basically there (the border) to like, what's it shoot-to-kill? Like, what's like, I don't want there to be any loss of life. Like that seems like the only goal here." - Moronic College Student


'Um, when President Obama did it, I felt that there was I suppose different coverage as to what the intentions were." - Another Moronic College Student.

Income Redistribution Day: The 4th of July for Liberals


"It's that time of year again. Uncle Sam takes off that gaudy blue coat, puts on his white smock and snaps that all-too-familiar rubber glove into place. And we, the taxpayers, must gird ourselves for intrusions of proctological magnitude and glacial duration by the revenuers...Yes, I want to keep more of my money - because it's mine. But there are people who don't see it that way. The problem with those people isn't simply that they're wrong. It's that they are in charge." - Jonah Goldberg


"Some taxpayers close their eyes, some stop their ears, some shut their mouths, but all pay through the nose." – Evan Esar

LIBERAL THEME SONG

"Be thankful I don't take it all."


"You see, here in America there's a reason why we celebrate the 4th of July and not April 15th, because in America we celebrate our independence from the government, not our dependence on it." - Governor Scott Walker

Walker's comment was very true for much of America's history...Unfortunately, this has become only about 50% true in our time - where almost 50% of the American people are either dependent on the government (tax payers) or want to be the overlords doling out the sticks and carrots to those who are dependent on them.  And make no mistake, for every carrot there is a stick.



"One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government." – Ron Paul
