Whichever you celebrate; Yankee Memorial Day or Confederate Memorial Day, I'll say a prayer for all the Americans that died serving their country, whether Yankee or Johnny Reb.

Ill give that one a Giant amen. (woops god in the politics sections) Ive served along side guys from every state in the union and they all bleed red for the red white and blue. They salute only ONE flag. Funny how when shtf state flags aren't good for much more then replacing the toilet paper that's allways in short supply. There are no words or prayers that can convey my real feelings toward those men and women who have died and could care less where there mom dropped them. Me I think there should be a national holiday for ALL the veterans of that war. Never in history were americans sent to war and death so wrongly by evil greedy rich powerful people on both sides. At least in viet nam the guys there knew it was a political mess. In the civil war with no communication and news all they knew was the line of bs there leaders brain washed them into believing. Those guys were sacrificed by the rich plain and simple. Funny thing is the northern soldiers were told it was for slavery and they killed thousands of southerners that 99 percent of couldn't afford slaves and the southern soldiers were told that the north wanted to oppress them when in fact the rich of the south already had taken care of that. Many of them lived lives not a lot better then the slaves. What was the north going to take away from some poor dirt farmer that had 20 acres to farm in North Carolina. My grandpa once made the comment that probably 75 percent of the soldiers on both sides of that war joined because it was the least amount of work they ever had to do to get fed every day and got the first new clothes they ever owned and even a pair of shoes! God Bless every one of them because if nothing else they showed anyone with an iq of over 60 how absolutely insane it is to fight your own countrymen. That is there legacy!

Our tradition is we stomped a mud hole in Japan for what they did to us at Bataan. No one around here regrets it.
In fact we celebrate it.

It's good to be from South; just makes a person feel good.

I have complete respect for the South it's very pretty. And the people were very friendly. Its that dang high
humidity and pollen that got to me. I still prefer the Western deserts though. I think it's more of a physical
thing than a cultural thing.

NSSA events have teams in both blue and gray. We stand in formation with .58’s at order arms during the national anthem. Every team is quiet. When Dixie starts playing, there is a huge roar!

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

I'm from Virginia my grandpa's rode with our cousin Turner Ashby in the 7th Virginia Cavalry. Has my midwestern wife as learned in over 40 years. I'm American by birth but Virginian by grace of God.


P.S. Once we toured all the battlefields in the Valley, she understands why we are like we are.
