Give Em Hell! Fighting 69th
The legendary fighting 69th is on its way to to help train local police on how to provide security and safety for its citizens. The proud family and friends of the soldiers gathered yesterday to honor the brave men and women deploying overseas to help protect those
Unfortunately, the NY Daily Snooze had to cheapen the event by emphasizing the fact that no elected officials were in attendance to honor the fighting 69th. Here is a news flash for the Daily News, soldiers and veterans do not need accolades from elected officials to let them know they are brave. They don't need parades, ceremonies, or awards to understand the importance for their jobs. They most certainly do not need the media to speak for them because it is the soldier that affords them the right to print their garbage in the first place.
Soldiers derive their strength, bravery and pride from being an American fighting man or woman and from knowing they are protecting their lives, freedoms and liberties of their families, friends and fellow countrymen from those enemies who seek to do them harm.
The fighting 69th didn't need any long winded speech from elected officials because they already know they have all they will ever need, the love and respect of a grateful nation.
Get home safe.
God bless America
