Fwd: Fw: This is Us

The following came to me via a retired Military friend.
This is us

The typical U.S household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth
47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to
an analysis of census data released Monday.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies,  geezers, and in
some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire
Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little  slower these days
and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We worked hard, raised
our children, worshiped our God and have grown old together.
In school we studied English, history, math, and science, which enabled us
to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what
outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days
of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered
to our homes.

We are probably considered old fashioned and outdated by many. But there are
a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won
World War II, fought in Korea and Vietnam. We can quote The Pledge of
Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the
uniform of our country with pride, and lost many friends on the battlefield.
We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the "Land
of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but
carried the same flag.

We know the words to the "Star   Spangled Banner," "America," and "America
the Beautiful" by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our
cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you should have read in
history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America .
Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one
good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died
for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and   nobody is
going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all
enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There
are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders,
there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the
Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was
nothing but "Hype and Lies" from your college professors. You youngsters
need to taste socialism and see evil face to face to understand  you don't
like it after all. You make a lot of noise, most are all too interested in
their careers or "Climbing the Social   Ladder" to be involved in such
mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the
"Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education
we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and
instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.'

Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2016
we took back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like,
but we get where we're going, and in 2020 we're driving to the polls again
by the millions.

 So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand
up, put your hand over your heart, honor your country, and thank God for the
old geezers of the "Gray-Haired Brigade."
Footnote:  This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on.  I
will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this still great

Can you feel the ground shaking???  It's not an earthquake, it is a
You and I are Members. Don't Delete. Just Read and Pass it on!!
In God we STILL trust!

God Bless all of you!
