Freedom

It's the " Soldier ", not the reporter who has given us Freedom of the Press .....

It's the " Soldier ", not the poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech .....

It's the " Soldier ", not the campus organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate .....

It's the " Soldier ", not the lawyer, who has given us the Right to a Fair Trial .....

It's the " Soldier " who SALUTES THE FLAG,

SERVES UNDER THE FLAG,

and whose COFFIN IS DRAPED BY THE FLAG!

My Current Project's


   I always have two " Actively Working Projects " :

    1.   Those who " Gave Their All " during World War II !   ~   Having completed memorial's for the World War II Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" from my home State of Delaware and our neighbor Maryland  ....  I moved on and also completed the States of Maine, New Hampshire, Wyoming and Vermont!  ....  I'm currently working on listing the Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II that were from the State Of Connecticut, District Of Columbia, and the State of New York.

    To view Those who " Gave Their All " during World War II click on your state of choice displayed below " :

    2.   My Christain Website " Faith Mountain " !   ~   I became, for a lack of a better word, a " Follower " of Jesus Christ in 1973 and have studied the Christian faith since that time ( 45 plus years )  ....  I quickly learned through my studies that becoming a "Fundamentalist" was the "only" possibility  ....  I was eventually called by God to become a " Teacher " ( not a preacher ) of the Christian Faith and in the year 2002 I was ordained as a minister  ....  Faith Mountain was started in the late 1990's as a way of sharing my Christian Faith and what I had learned .....

     Worked on a project with the "Democrat & Chronicle" of Rochester, New York.   This project included two parts:   First a database of all the soldiers and sailors that "Gave Their All" during World War II from Monroe County and secondly stories where printed on some of the soldiers on their front page on the Sunday before Memorial Day 2012.   Those stories are no longer available unless you subscribe to that paper.

This database is online and located at the following address and is available for all to view:

     I proudly served my country as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army.   In the 60's, when I was eligible for the draft, they used a lottery system based on birthdates to determine who would be drafted and who wouldn't.   Based on my birthdate it was " positive " that I " would not " be drafted!   " I enlisted in the Army anyway to serve my county despite the fact that I wouldn't be drafted! "
