Daddy, Before You Go
Pappy Cracker runned away to join the Marines when he was 15. Found a barmaid to sign that she wuz his mama an' give her permission fer an underage boy-chile to join up.
On his 16th Birthday, December 7th, he earned his Purple Heart at Peal Harbor. PFC when he discharged five years later... fought in the Pacific, cold, hungry an' afraid. An' thar' was an army of men and ladies jes' like him.
Does y'all know that few WWII vets is left?
Mah Daddy is one of 'em, an we's gatherin' the clan fer a mighty celebration--specially since his birthday is akshully Dec 7th.
Reckon that makes the comin' Pearl Harbor day extra special fer these brave souls that made all that is dear to us Americans possible to keep--to this point. We owe them thanks, but forgive me if this hits yore ears harshly, we owe them our own future--iffin' we doan protect and defend our way of life, the Constitution, our freedoms, then we's turned our backs on the sacrifice these men and women made. Now they's dyin' an some is wonderin' if what they won can be saved by folks like you an' me.
I'se grateful others feel the same an made this heah little video fer ya to think on....
