Support Our Troops

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

This link is for the same song but the video here has different pictures and a beautiful prayer at the end.
Please take the time to click on the link. It is really worth viewing.

Hi Raggedy ~~ Great post and we should never forget what the men and women in the armed forces do for us all. Thank you for your comments and yes had a great visit with my son and
d-i-l and it is nice to provide some nice meals for people who enjoy them.

A good post Raggedy, I don't think I knew you were a USAF veteran, if you have mentioned it before I must have missed it.
