June 14 through July 4 are 'Honor America' days. June 14 is also the Birthday of the U.S. army. It is a time to proudly display our flag and all it represents. While no country or organization is perfect (as long as humans are involved, since none of us are perfect), here in America, we have made a pretty good effort to be the best we can be. We really do value individual freedom and liberty. We really do wish others around the globe could enjoy many of our freedoms and liberties, otherwise we would not bother to get involved. So let's celebrate that which makes our country great, which includes our armed forces. Let's wish our Army a Happy Birthday and thanks for helping us keep our freedoms and liberties. ~ Michael S.
