“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Many a home had a milk box, and not for planting flowers in. Twice a week the milkman came with milk, eggs, cottage cheese. In the summer he would have ice on hand to keep the milk from going bad. Growing up a big treat was to get a big chuck of ice to cool off with. Somehow that big ice cube was better then ice cream, it was so clear you could see through it. Some homes had a milk box build in by the side door, or back door, and there was a door inside so you could get your milk with out having to step outside. Milk in glass bottle, milk man, ice on trucks, are just memories of growing up. This milk box belonged to my parents when we lived in Detroit. Twin Pines Dairy would come on Tuesday and Fridays. Do you have a favorite story of the milk man coming to your home?

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
