Veterans Day Celebration

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.          John 15:13

A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. That is beyond honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact. God bless our Veterans! 🇱🇷💕 Thank you to all that served and serve !

DAV State Commander Ron Carr and DAV 62 Unit Commander Melissa “Tank” Hernandez joined the Veterans Day Parade and Meal Celebrations. God bless you and thank you!

Don’t Forget to Vote!

Don’t forget to vote this Tuesday November 6, 2018. Many have fought for our right to vote and yet very few act upon it. If you do not vote, then you have no right to complain!

It’s a sad fact that normally less than half of all eligible voters cast a ballot in midterm elections. That’s a ton of wasted opportunities isn’t it? Think about it. Those who win elections make decisions that impact every one of us at so many levels. They impact our children and grandchildren by deciding what schools can and cannot do. Their laws and regulations impact our livelihoods. They make decisions impacting cherished freedoms such as speech, religion, conscience, security, and privacy. They decide how much money to spend and how much we pay in taxes to run the government. They are a part of deciding whether we will be a country of order and the rule of law or whether we will continue with immigration laws that are ineffective and unmanageable. They help set the direction of our cities, states, and our country. This just touches on the ways election results directly impact our daily lives. Are these issues important to you? Then you need to research the options on the ballot, PRAY and ask God for His wisdom, and make sure you VOTE.
