    While I have come to love the south I was extremly proud of my home town this past week. Cameron Missouri laid to rest Mathew Kelly, USMC.

    War protesters threatened to disrupt funeral service and the whole town, 4 countys, and the Patriot Guard motorcylcle club lined the parade route so thickly that the protestors were unable to disrupt the services.

    A video of us flag waving midwesterners and the parade can be found at Select tribute and play slide show. God bless you Matt, and thank you for your service.

    Thanks Rick that was very inspirational and being one of five brothers in the family that served from WWII through the Korean conflict it brought tears to my eyes and I am proud of it.

    Thanks to Mathew and the other fallen. They gave the ultimate sacrifice and are the real HEROES.

    This is a Video of Canada's Highway of Heroes. For more than a 100 miles every overpass enroute is lined with crowds of people waving flags and Honouring our fallen Heroes each and every time a hero is brought home to rest. Rain or shine freezing weather or fair they are always there for our Soldiers return.

    The Highway has been re-named and Is now officially the Highway of Hereos.

    All of America's hereos deserve no less than this.

    I want to thank everyone for there thoughts and prayers. As I set here trying to come up with the correct words, with cloudy eyes, I am gratefull to all who serve. I come from a long line of those that answered there countrys call going back to the Revolution. My Father was decorated in Korea, and his father before him. I and my brother both served in the USAF. My younger sister was Navy.

    Many folks no longer understand that it is the blood of our sons and daughters, that allows them to have an opinion, protest, and literally wake up every morning with the opportunity to better themselves in every way.
    They go day to day making choices only because of the blood spent. If you cannot disagree and at the same time show respect for those that make it possible, you are not good enoeph to sit at my table and eat my Q. In todays society this sacrafice has been all too cheapened.

    I know I am ranting so nuff said.
