“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
Do you remember your mother and grandmother mending underwear? From bra and slip straps, to pink and blue elastic for ladies, and girls underwear! Monday was wash day, and Tuesday was ironing and mending day. From sewing buttons back onto shirts, to new elastic, and sock darning. My mother would spend the day fixing and ironing our clothes. I'm old enough to remember when everything had to be ironed. From sheets, to shirts, pants and blouses. It did take time to all of this. Today we throw them out and buy new. Maybe if we fixed what was ripped we have a little extra spending money, or a little to save. The bigger question is can you buy this stuff any more? I'm lucky to buy a spool of white thread! Times have changed.

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".
