Reminders: Almost every year I have to look up the birthdays of the military services. Could you get all these days correct on a quiz?
Army Birthday -14 June 1775
Marine Corps Birthday – 10 November 1775
Navy Birthday -13 October 1775
Air Force Birthday – 18 September 1947
Coast Guard Birthday – 4 August 1790
No doubt you know and celebrate the birthday of your own branch of service. Why? Because you’re proud of your service. Another date is coming up soon that we all are a part of, and that is our national date for electing a new President of the USA: November 8, 2016 Let’s celebrate. Make sure you are registered to vote. Make sure that you vote. And the day after the election we can all celebrate together. If you voted your party affiliation–fine. If you voted for a candidate other than your party–fine. But together we can celebrate on the day after the election. Vote for the candidate you believe to be the one best for our nation. You may be like me. As I look at the last six presidents of our nation, I have voted for three of them who were not my party’s affiliation because I thought they were the ones who would best lead our nation in good times or bad times. On the day after the election we can all celebrate….because we have done our part.
