FORTITUDE & LOYALTY
This website is:
Dedicated to those who were vigilant so we
could rest,
Who gave everything that we may thrive,
Who are silent that we may breathe free.
We honor you, veterans of USA.

This VFW Post is:
Politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas,
God bless America, we salute our flag and
give thanks to our troops, police officers and
firefighters. If this offends you, leave this
website ASAP.  In God we trust.

We highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain,
that this nation, under GOD, shall
have a new birth of freedom, and
the government of the people,
by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.  
A.Lincoln
America, America,
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown they good
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
                                       Immigration Now

We have laws on the books that regulate immigration and there is a process, but
our leaders and politicians are not following the rules. We do have national
borders, but the globalists don’t want borders. The last administration did not want
borders, and the illegals who crossed over had a negative impact, especially on
those who came in according to the law.
The problem in Europe, and now in USA, is that the government is trying to cross
over and do the church’s job, caring for the migrants’ needs, without taking care
of its own responsibility of applying the laws justly.  They’re drawn here because
we have religious freedom, freedom of speech, they can own private property,
and do all the things in our Constitution.    Hopefully when they come, they want to
participate in that holy experiment, that shining city on a hill, partake in that
blessing God has provided.
But we must understand the difference between immigrants who want to assimilate
into the culture that offers them freedom and hope for a better way of life and
those who want to supplant the culture with that of their homeland.  So when they
come for the right reasons to respect our laws and our people, we need to point
them to the God of heaven who made this possible.  God says to assimilate them,
point them in the right direction.  
In our country, we are pointing them to the god of government.  About 90 percent
of refugees from the Middle East are placed on food stamps when they arrive in
America, and 76 percent are placed on Medicaid.   Their needs are met by the
government, not the Church.  
As a sovereign nation, we cannot continue with open borders and add to the
burden of law abiding citizens.  Enforce the laws and stop those who do not intend
to assimilate.  Keep the terrorist out now and forever.  We are given orders by
God Almighty to purge the evil from among us, do not place a foreigner over us,
one who is not a brother (Deut 17).  
                      Iraq War Begins – 19 March 2003

On this day the United States, along with coalition forces primarily from the
United Kingdom, initiates war on Iraq. Just after explosions began to rock
Baghdad, Iraq’s capital, President Bush announced that American and
coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq,
to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.  Though
Saddam Hussein had declared in early March 2003 that the faithful will be
victorious against aggression, he went into hiding soon after the American
invasion, speaking to his people only through an occasional audiotape.   
Coalition forces were able to topple his regime and capture Iraq’s major
cities in just three weeks, sustaining few casualties.   After an intense
manhunt, U.S. soldiers found Saddam Hussein hiding in a six-to-eight-foot
deep hole, nine miles outside his hometown of Tikrit.   He was arrested
and began trial for crimes against his people, including mass killings, in
October 2005.   On 6 November 2006, Saddam Hussein was found guilty
of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death by hanging and was
executed on 30 December 2006.
