Mooresville, NC. Small town USA at its best.
Let's go inside for a few moments.
How does "smoke" get in your eyes when no one is smoking?
You don't have to drive thousands of miles to say thank you and get a glimpse of what our Veterans have done for us.
These guys didn't receive these decorations for "showing up".
And who's dream was this
Mr. Robert Warren
Chopper Pilot in Nam .
Died three years ago from complications of Agent Orange.
First "Welcome" some from Vietnam had ever received
(I don't have to list names because I'm not a real reporter)
They remember. (how could they ever forget)
This was a very special day for them and us.
The memories can be painful.
All of their rides tell a story. (look at the tag)
Some paid a higher price than others.
We can learn a lot from these men.
Like, respect for our Flag and National Anthem.
That example was not lost on the Mooresville HS ROTC Color Guard.
The passing of the Guard.
I don't know these guys, but I owe them, and I love them.
Lots of "smoke in the room".
Small town USA . . . . I think not.
Some of you have aged a lot more gracefully than others
Oh, and my favorite ride . . .
GOD BLESS AMERICA ! and GOD BLESS OUR VETS, PAST AND PRESENT, That we still have an America !
