Building Up vs. Tearing Down
« on: September 06, 2017, 02:55:20 PM »
For the past 2-3 months, I've been running past this newly built memorial that our town just finished building. It borders a small park along the river that makes up part of one of my 3 running trails. I've watched them build it & today stopped by to take a few pictures.

It makes one proud to see this building up (one of the stone markers mentions "All" wars) of the veterans of our wars amidst the tearing down & hatred by those cowardly losers who comprise the left.

Thank you to everyone who has or is currently serving our country!

Better run good folk by there routinely to keep an eye on it...maybe install some digital cameras to capture any leftist douchebags spurred by D-MC hatred to vandalize it!

Such modest tributes to past honorable service should be the norm and not the exception...make those stinking leftist terrorists the exception and help migrate them to extinction!

Thanks for posting that Pablo...gives me a small boost knowing good folk are still out there doing good!   ::thumbsup::   ::USA::

Grabbed this one today - view from across a small street accessing the park (the memorial pictures, above are behind the statue).  ::USA::

a memorial statue featuring him holding a water-cooled Browning machine gun is located at the intersections of Old York Road and Canal Street in Raritan (childhood friend Phillip Orlando sculpted the statue)





He was the only Marine enlisted man to receive both the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross in World War II.
