    Default 4th of July 2019

    I love this country. The United States of America, the great experiment affords we the citizens freedoms not available elsewhere.

    Without political overtones or commentary I say the above with a clear eye to the future.

    If you fucking love this country and have a dog in the fight than fucking fight for it.

    I think back to all the 4ths I've celebrated, the ones that stick in my memory are the ones where I was deployed or stationed overseas. In 2000, I was in Manama, Bahrain, it was 120 degrees and humid, and for the first time it really struck home how good we have it in the US. To walk outside the gates of the base meant I was subject to the laws of another country, totally lacking the freedoms we take for granted. Another 4th was in LaMaddalena, Sardinia. Because of the US base, we had a big fireworks barge anchored out in the Venetian type harbor. We all lined the seawall with the local Sardi and tourists to watch the show. We had live bands and on that night, we all celebrated US independence. Local beer (Ichnusa) and Peroni (Italian Budweiser) were handed out freely to all our friends and acquaintances. I'll always remember that night.

    Yesterday my son called, he is currently at West Point until the end of the month. He is one of 8 Navy Midshipmen doing field leadership training. Today he'll don his choker whites for celebration of independence with his West Point Cadet friends. I couldn't be prouder of his commitment to country.
