Default Happy Veteran's Day

Formerly known as Armistice Day, tomorrow we celebrate our military on Veterans Day.

To our servicemen and women, Thank You For Your Service to our country. It's because of people like you that we are able to enjoy our freedoms that many of us take for granted.

the Brave Americans
Philip Freneau

http://lovetolearnplace.com/SpecialD...l#anchor233799
Under General Greene, in South Carolina,
who fell in the action of September 8, 1781

AT Eutaw Springs the valiant died;
Their limbs with dust are covered o'er —
Weep on, ye springs, your tearful tide;
How many heroes are no more!

If in this wreck or ruin, they
Can yet be thought to claim a tear,
O smite your gentle breast, and say
The friends of freedom slumber here!

Thou, who shalt trace this bloody plain,
If goodness rules thy generous breast,
Sigh for the wasted rural reign;
Sign for the shepherds, sunk to rest!

Stranger, their humble graves adorn;
You too may fall, and ask a tear;
'Tis not the beauty of the morn
That proves the evening shall be clear. —

They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear — but left the shield.

Led by thy conquering genius, Greene,
The Britons they compelled to fly;
None distant viewed the fatal plain,
None grieved, in such a cause to die —

But, like the Parthian, famed of old,
Who, flying, still their arrows threw,
These routed Britons, full as bold,
Retreated, and retreating slew.

Now rest in peace, our patriot band,
Though far from nature's limits thrown,
We trust they find a happier land,
A brighter sunshine of their own.

Default VETERANS DAY......

To all my fellow Veterans out there in Steeler Nation......


It is the Veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the Veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Veteran, who salutes the Flag,
It is the Veteran, who serves under the Flag,
To be buried by the flag,
So the protester can burn the flag.


I have served with some of the greatest human beings I have ever known. I have seen the sacrifice and bore witness to feats of heroism that trivialize the stunts of hollywood. I have stories that will put you on the edge of your seat one moment and make you weep the next. War has taken it's toll on my soul, but it has also tought me about the human spirit and how unselfishly noble and valiant it can be.

I salute my fellow Veterans and say thank you for your selfless contribution to this country.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.

flag burners aside (who dont even deserve to be recognized on this day) ...

to all of the SF members who have served- thank you.

im betting all of us have a family member or friend who have sacrificed for us and this nation.

reach out to them, show your appreciation, and let them know you care. (a simple call or e-mail can go a long, long way)

Default Thanks to all the Veterans!!

I just wanted to start a Thread to thank all of our Veterans and Active Military for all you have done and continue to do for us each and every day! You are in our thoughts and prayers!

I also wanted to find out from Steeler Nation who are Veterans or Active Military where you were or are currently stationed and years of active duty if you are retired. I will start it off

All gave some, some gave all. My deepest respect and gratitude for those that can't be here.
