Heroes, Kiddos and Beauty Queens

The second political event we attended on Saturday was held in Jackson, Tn. It was a salute to our troops, an event honoring current  and past military members. FYI…a lot of flags and a lot of well deserved respect!!!

image I’ve posted photos of  Col. Harding a few times but this is the first time I’ve been able to get Mrs. Barbara in a photo, she is one of those wives who discreetly sink into the background when her hero husband is interacting and being photographed…I decided it was time to get the lady who helped the Colonel become the hero he is…Barbara Harding, this is a salute to you for all you’ve done and sacrificed!!! We thank you Mrs. Barbara!!!

imageThis is what patriotism is all about!!! A local Marine hero, a local young man whose military Hero Dad was senselessly executed by a gang member and the youth of our nation surrounding them with support…nothing could be more representative…of “We Surround You”…a phrase echoed by Mike Slater via Glenn Beck. Two different ways of interpreting the phrase…" We Surround You”.

I’ve had numerous requests for links to my 9-12 DC photos from last year so I’m listing some here…
