I admit the last few days have brought a flood of emotions for me.

Happy Independence Day

As I sit here in my room above the US Vets program in Las Vegas on this 4th of July I am listening to some very patriotic music by a variety of military bands. I am very thankful that the good Lord allowed me to be a citizen of this great nation, where at least I know that I am free to be all that God intended me to be. I don’t need anyone else to tell me how to live my life or what to believe. I follow my God given conscience of what is right and what is wrong (see Rom. Chapter One).

Well,  I don’t feel like ranting much today so I’m going to go and enjoy my 4th. They are having a BBQ downstairs today to feed the homeless. If anyone can make a small donation to US VETS it would be greatly appreciated. Mention me in your prayers. Happy 4th to you all. Love: Mike 😁

Hug a Veteran/Service Member Today!


I wish that more people would be more appreciative of what they have as Americans. People who go around saying that they “Hate Americans” and that they “Hate America” ought to seriously consider moving to a place like Iran or North Korea,

Happy Independance Day!

This is a very excellent rendition of “America the Beautiful” by the Hillsdale College choir. If it doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, I don’t know what will. You can take several free courses from them regarding different aspects of our heritage at I’m currently taking “Constitution 101.”

Happy Memorial Day!

dog=tagsI never knew that this existed. It’s at the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chicago. Above is a commemoration of all the men and women who died in the Vietnam War. Dog tags for each individual hang in formation, shoulder to shoulder, beginning with first person killed and ending with the last.
