Happy Birthday Marine Corps!

Today, November 10th, marks the 239th birthday to a group of some of the toughest people on the planet. The Few, The Proud, The Marines. Semper Fidelis, or "always faithful" is the Marines motto.  They truly exemplify that motto by standing among their brothers arm in arm to keep us all safe. We are so proud to have such an incredibly passionate group of people that are so dedicated to freedom.

 

“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.”

-Ronald Reagan

Prayers For The Middle East

As the news continues to fill the screens with devastating videos of the conflict in Israel and the Gaza strip, we must continue to remind ourselves how thankful we are to live a world free of oppression like that. Us Americans are born free, live free, and die free. Other people are not so lucky to have that right. Lets all be a little more conscious about how great it is to live in this country, the best one on Earth, while at the same time, lift our American brothers in need.  Thank a veteran, feed a needy person, help an elderly person out; do what you can.  Life is so much richer when we stop and remember that no matter what country someone was born in, no matter what their religious views are, we are all brothers and sisters of the human race. Pray for the Middle East

United We Stand

Amazon.com collected information on American Flag items sold, and voted Virginia Beach the most Patriotic city in the country. Interesting to think about, and exciting for us residents of Virginia Beach, but we all need to remember something. Patriotism is not a city to city competition, but merely a means of bringing our entire country together.  

This 4th of july weekend, take a moment to think about how great it is to live in a country where you can have barbecues, pool parties, and an ice cold beer without worry of oppression. We are free, and these colors don't run. Remember that either democrat, republican, black, white, asian, or hispanic; Americans, we are all in this together.

Happy Independence Day everyone

"The people, united, will never be defeated"

Happy July 4th!

Thank you to all of those that fought to make America Free, those that fought to keep America free, and those that believe and dedicate their work and lives today to help keep faith in freedom alive!

Hope everyone has a grateful and safe 4th of July weekend!

"Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation and freedom in all just pursuits."

- Thomas Jefferson

"Only our individual faith in freedom can keep us free."

- Dwight D. Eisenhower
