    My father was there as an 18 year old. As the years went by he had 5 wives. I only had 4 so I'm doing OK.

    My Honor and Respect goes to all those who fought and died at Iwo Jima. It also goes to all that served in WW2. My Father and all my Uncles served in the Army in WW2.

    Those guys stepping off the boats knew that most of them wouldn't be coming home. They stepped off anyway, and set the standard that we all should strive for, whether we are active duty or otherwise.

    A lot different than some of the ignorant and aimless people we see today, whose only mission is to destroy their own country.

    Wonder how a declared war would be handled by the Biden Administration?? I think our troops would be facing prison for "Hate Crimes". Wouldn't that be radical racism, if you killed an enemy that wasn't White?? Damn sure better hope Africa doesn't declare war on us......I think in the future, the U.S. will just buy their way out of conflicts. I mean, the Federal Reserve can print the shet out of that money. Won't be long before the Mexican Peso will be worth more than a U.S. 10 dollar bill.
