Click the header. Or else. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The eagle still still soars over our military and the self sacrificing men and women who make up our armed forces. God bless you, every one. When I swore the allegiance oath upon enlisting in the Navy, although many years ago, I remember how the words seemed to stick in my mind, I wondered how they could only be words to some taking the oath. And, yes, I was scared. I had just volunteered to give up my life if it was needed. The oath swearing was very definitely one of the high lights, and stirring events, of my life then. And it remains so today.
