Remembrance

Veterans Day Remembrance.

Jamel Bryant of Belleville Il was 22 years old when he died September 27th. He joined the army 2 years ago to become a better man. Jamal was a self taught piano player, music producer and rapper.

He was known for his resourcefulness and for mentoring children. In Iraq he was always giving candy to local children.


Daniel R. Sexton of Wentzville Missouri was 53 years old when he died. He joined the Army when he was 33. The same age as me he joined the Army because of guilt he felt for missing the Vietnam war. He is remembered by his wife and sons.

He is one of the 34 coalition members over the age of 50 who have died in Iraq.

The oldest coalition soldier to die in Iraq is Sidney J. Marceaux. Sidney was 69 years old when he died September 14th. He stayed on past retirement because of the shortage of Catholic priests.

Sidney was From Beaumont Texas. He explained “I was able to exercise my priesthood in a way I couldn’t in a diocese,” Marceaux said. “I was able to help them face death daily. They knew they had to go out and they knew they may not come back.”

Because of rain Nancy has not been able to get out and draw names the last few weeks. If things clear up she will chalk again on Monday at 7:15am.

    In America, we enjoy the freedom of giving half our income to the government through various forms of taxes. We have the freedom to participate in a Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. We have the freedom to vote for the president. Unlike the voters of Iraq under Saddam Hussein, who only had one choice for president, we have two choices! We have the freedom to choose between Republican-led big government programs and Democrat-led big government programs. We have the freedom to use government-controlled money, which loses value every year. We have the freedom to subsidize the poltically-connected agricultural, automotive, and banking industries. We have the freedom of sending children through the compusory government-run education system, and then pay for job training for those that get through 12 years of schooling and still don’t know how to do anything. We have the freedom to own guns, provided that said gun is approved by the government and we pass the government-mandated background check. If we get the appropriate permits and stand in then proper free-speech zone, we have the freedom to protest.

    Thanks to all the veterans that defended these freedoms and kept them from being taken away!
