You’ll never see this picture on the front of Time Magazine, or any other magazine.

We see lots of pictures of wounded male veterans
but women vets get wounded and maimed too.
You may need to take a second, closer look though.
The first thing I saw was a bunch of beautiful smiles.
Study this picture again. Let the story it tells sink in.
These women and many others, as well as their male comrades,
paid this price for our freedoms.
And, they did it for less than what welfare recipients are paid!!!
 
There is more patriotism and class in those 11 ladies pictured
than the majority of Congress and the former White House combined!!!
And a HECK of a lot more than those over-paid athletes
who choose to “take a knee” when the National Anthem is played!!!
 
They risked these injuries (or death) FOR YOU and ME, AMERICA!
 
GOD BLESS THEM ALL !!!
 
Enjoy Life!

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, "We the People of the U.S.A." produced the following:
 
            22 aircraft carriers
 
            8 battleships
            48 cruisers
          349 destroyers
          420 destroyer escorts
          203 submarines
            34 million tons of merchant ships
   100,000 fighter aircraft
     98,000 bombers
     24,000 transport aircraft
     58,000 training aircraft
     93,000 tanks
   257,000 artillery pieces
   105,000 mortars
3,000,000 machine guns and
2,500,000 military trucks
 
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Japan and Germany.
 
It’s amazing what America did in those days

Born a 5th generation military brat to an active military family and if I ever have kids they will be 6th gen or I will toss them out! 

Freedom Is not Free and if we fail to fight for it the only ones that will have freedom are those we have already buried!
