When you watch the sacrifice of our military & their families, remember the corrupt bottom-feeders in political office in DC & everywhere else. These corrupt politicians are a natl disgrace.

For Quods who love these videos as much as I do.

New Military Homecoming video:


Hey Patriots4Ever, thanks for the follow, following back. Good to have you with us, and Welcome to the QV Community.

Those of us who have fought Communists in the jungles of Vietnam and have lived closely with the horror of the Berlin Wall, believe them. This, above all, is why I am in the uniform of my country.


for their failures to America, accusing us of imperialism and exploitation. They have embarked upon an unprecedented build-up of their military forces and have stationed them like a pistol, cocked and aimed at the head of America. This is why I am in the uniform of my country.

Solzhenitsyn, Sakharov, and other Soviet dissidents have warned us of what to expect if we acquiesce in Soviet blackmail or lose to them in war: slavery.

(Continued) Pg. 7

Incapable of solving their domestic problems by other methods, they, instead, divert the discontent of their people by blaming other nations for their own political and economic inadequacies. This is not new. Hitler and the Nazis did it. For 33, years, so have the Soviets. Knowing the inadequacy of Marxist economic theories in providing the Russian people a standard of living comparable to that of the American people, the Soviets have attempted to transfer the blame

(Continued) Pg. 6

Underlying them all, however, is the confidence that, in time, we shall solve them. Working to overcome these problems, we find scientists in research laboratories, scholars in "think tanks," millions of inventors in basements and garages, inheritors all of the tradition of Yankee ingenuity: "The difficult we do today. The impossible takes a little longer." This is why I am in the uniform of my country.

Nations, much like individuals, have a tendency to transfer blame.

(Continued) Pg. 5

To live in "poverty" in America is to live with a hope that is denied to the masses of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Poverty is not a permanent condition in America. Birth in poverty is not a guarantee of death in poverty. In America there is always hope. This is why I am in the uniform of my country.

Today, America faces problems unequaled in our history. Energy, Inflation, Unemployment, Balance of trade deficits, Environmental pollution.

(Continued) Pg. 4

In the arts, sciences, medicine, industry, indeed, in every field of human endeavor, unfettered by the chains of ideological conformity and government control of the liberty to think one's thoughts and to speak one's mind, Americans have led the way. This is why I am in the uniform of my country.

Those whom we call poor in America live in an affluence unknown by the vast majority of the people of the world.

"Why Am I in the Uniform of My Country"

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." With those words, Thomas Jefferson, educator, inventor, architect, musician, and politician, expressed the essence of American democracy and the secret of America's rise to world power. No other nation in the history of of mankind has provided the atmosphere of intellectual freedom such as has existed in America.

(Continued) Pg. 2

My brother was in the Army and was stationed in Germany about 40 years ago. He wrote an article for the Stars and Stripes entitled "Why Am I in the Uniform of My Country." This is, in my opinion, an excellent essay and is still pertinent today, if not more so than it was 40 years ago.

The article follows...

(continued) Pg. 1


At 5pm my wife said, "Oh, I forget, a lady from the hospital called today (AT NOON!).

"Yes? AND?!"

"She said you can come any time to talk to the doctor about the results."

"Okay, why aren't we there now?!"

My wife laughed, "I ask the nurse if she can tell me something. She said she can't say detail, but she saw the results and said the doctor very happy too, nothing wrong, so no hurry. So we go tomorrow, ok?"

"K. Excuse me, Honey, I'm going to eat this whole damned cake."

Happy Father's Day to all quod dads.... Since my dad died in 1974, I make it a point to send mom both Mother's and Father's Day cards and a phone call on those days. To all the single mom's out there raising your children alone, G-d Bless you, too. To all the single Dad's out there raising your children alone, you too deserve acknowledgement on both days as well.

What else is there we can't see?

"We have been working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to allow users to activate the Exposure Notifications System directly from their Android phone settings.

Happy Father's Day to my dad, Hugh. He passed away just before my daughter's first birthday. She is now 36. They were already fast friends. I miss him very much. So many lessons and questions missed out on. I will get my answers...just not here. You were a good man. I know you loved us as best you could. Rest in peace. Lord knows you deserve it after living with Jean. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Could you tell from his photo that he would go on to join the Navy and serve in WWII?? Love you, dad. โค๏ธ

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
