Taps at a fallen soldier’s funeral.

Freedom is not free, but advice sure is!

That situation has happened thousands of times! As I recall some guys got "Dear John letters" as early as basic training (4-8 weeks).

The guys who handled it right, took the letter as good information..figuring, "better to find out her nature now, rather than later, such as after marriage".

One fellow I served with from New Jersey, got just such a letter during is basic training. He faced it the best way he could..

That was way back in 1955, when we stored our M1s in racks in our barracks. Upon receiving the letter, he took her picture, frame and all, outdoors.

Then he got several of us "volunteers" to take our rifles out near where the garbage can enclosure stood.

First, using his entrenching tool, he dug a shallow 'grave', placed the picture with glass & frame, into the grave, and drove it down with a rifle butt.

Then after interring, we held a mock 'rifle salute'..and Pvt Kersey did a pretty good imitation of 'Taps'..even without an instrument..

Then the Dear John recipient, went ahead with his life and never looked back.

DEMOCRATS/ABORTIONISTS SHOULD TAKE HEED OF THE FACT THAT BABIES ARE GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS.

this-


i could explain but it'd be too long and drawn out

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.

Bill, et al, for some, when tagging a YouTube video on GBO since the VS software changeover, it has become necessary to:

1.) RIGHT CLICK on the video
2.) COPY the URL link
3.) EXECUTE a new Internet Explorer Window
4.) PASTE the link in the Task Bar of the new Explorer Window
5.) VIEW the video at YouTube.

The video link is above, imbedded in the picture, as copied here [text]https://youtu.be/IZbN_nmxAGk[/text] if you wish to copy it to view it.
