Something 4 the 4th

I'm going to post this up for the 4th because I really enjoyed reading this. It goes out to every man who fought to give us our freedom. This is the Soldier's Creed:

I am an American Soldier.
I am a Warrior and a member of a team.
I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.
I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I am an American Soldier.

Being an old Navy guy I couldn't resist:

Sailor's Creed

I am a United States Sailor.

I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me.

I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and all who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world.

I proudly serve my country’s Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment .

I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.

That's awesome, thanks for posting, Kade. May we always remember and be grateful for those that have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice their lives for our freedom.

Kole and Kade,

It was a joy to have your family over for the 4th. Liz and I had a wonderful time catching up with you guys.

Hopefully we can get together again sometime soon. I'll put some pictures of my guitar stuff on our blog in the next couple of days.

Tell your dad I really enjoyed our time to catch up. I miss conversations with him.

God bless,

My parents being Air Force I though I should put something about the AF up. :) Here is a link to a video on YouTube... Now, Mr THomas (BT), I know you are going to watch it and say 'thats a navy plane!' because yes, there is an
f-14 Tomcat on there. But if you look carefully at the two f-15s it has the lettering LN on the tail. That means it was at Lankenheath England where dad was stationed out of! We saw a lot of them there!

Back to the subject ...

The Airman's Creed

I am an American Airman.
I am a warrior.
I have answered my nation's call.
I am an American Airman.
My mission is to fly, fight, and win.
I am faithful to a proud heritage,
A tradition of honor,
And a legacy of valor.
I am an American Airman,
Guardian of freedom and justice,
My nation's sword and shield,
Its sentry and avenger.
I defend my country with my life.
I am an American Airman:
Wingman, leader, warrior.
I will never leave an Airman behind,
I will never falter,
And I will not fail.

Now you will be happy Nick. :)
