Thank you for your service @Todd1! Welcome to the Community!

We’re not giving up on Washington! You need to know something about @Tim and the entire crew here at the USCCA, we are passionate and dedicated to helping responsibly armed Americans protect themselves… and we don’t give up!

Tim’s philosophy is pedal to the metal and go. If it doesn’t work one way, change directions and try a new approach.

And one thing I’ve learned during my time at the USCCA, the only failure is giving up.

I found this online and had to have it! Will frame it in a display case and mount the case on the wall. This one is for myself and Veterans everywhere.

Sherry did not know how big a Bowie knife was… until I pulled it out of the box and handed it to her.

All I could think of was a line from one of the Crocodile Dundee Movies, “Now, That’s a Knife!”

He is probably smiling since that is the first time he had been to the dentist in 16 years :rofl:
The Army dentist put in so many gold crowns and fillings.

His combat medic training did save my brothers life once.

Sadly as of a few months ago he is now on eternal assignment at Fort Snelling.

To all my sisters and brothers who took the oath to support and defend I salute you. One of the best things I ever did was to join the USAF right out of HighSchool. I learned a deep respect for God, Country, and our history as a nation. While we’ve made mistakes we have always worked and fought to correct them. Again a heart felt salute to all active duty and veterans.

Serve from 1970 to 1973 in U.S. Army with a tour in Iran before the Ayatollah took over. Used to be a very beautiful country.

Remember that unlike Veterans Day in which we honor all active duty and vet’s, Memorial Day is for the real heroes, those who never made it home.

There is no greater gift than the sacrifice of one’s own life so that others may live.

We honor those who never returned and especially, remember their families. It is to them we owe a debt we can never pay.

For all my brothers and sisters who never made it back from Iraq, Afghanistan, and parts unknown, I salute you, I mourn for you and I will ALWAYS honor your memory.
