Planting flags for fallen soldiers

Much Much more then my hat off to Larry as well as the other few, out of the other 99% who never served, in this Country that actually get it, groups or individuals, BUT the Reality will be posted below this heartwarming report as it is above below the blog title:

With thousands of flags, honoring fallen heroes he's never met
18 May 2012 - Two American service members were killed Friday by enemy rockets in Afghanistan. Here at home, it is all too easy to forget about the war -- and the sacrifice of Americans in uniform and their families.

But there is a man determined to make sure our fallen heroes get the final salute they deserve. CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman met him, "On the Road."

If you only knew Private First Class Dustin Gross, or his family -- or even if you just grew up in this same small Kentucky town -- you'd be here too.

But what if you didn't know Dustin at all? What if all you knew about him was that he was an Army soldier killed in Afghanistan last week by a roadside bomb? How far out of your way would you go to honor his loss?

How about 602 miles?

Larry Eckhardt drove 11 hours, with a trailer in tow.

"All they know is that I'm coming to try and help them pay respect to one of their own," Eckhardt said.

Eckhardt is a property manager from Little York, Ill. who lives by two mottoes: Nothing is more important than honoring a fallen soldier; and there's no such thing as too many flags. read more>>>

The new 'magnetic ribbons' the 'parades' and the 'welcome home', same results, but 'parades' only last a few hours on one day! Think 'Desert Storm' and 'Gulf War Syndrome', Ignored till this administration and especially the VA of, after the 'Parades'!

Have them by all means, but everyone at and waving flags etc. should have one thought on the mind and in speeches at, Sacrifice, yours, what you owe!

No Revenues = Still No Sacrifice = That's Called 'Support' For The Troops = DeJa-Vu all over again!!

Now a decade and counting, told to go shopping, use patriotic meme's and symbols of support and wave them flags, added to the previous decades of under funding the VA, while the peoples reps Still try and lay blame on the Agency, after rubber stamping wars and costs of and those represented cheer on these wars!

While the wealthy and other investors garner their booty, still, from both and many have the chutz·pa to call themselves more patriotic{?} then others wrapped in those false flags, using false slogans and various cheap symbols of and then seek one day events or parades to wave all that patriotism, call it "Supporting the Troops", then go home and either ignore or forget about those that actually sacrificed for the country!
