This is a song I have loved for a long time. I never have listened to it without shedding tears, tears of sadness but also tears of such pride in our Veterans and for those serving now. I would like to share it with you.

Please click HERE to hear the song. Thank you so much. It is by Billy Ray Cyrus called " Some Gave All.

Also a BIG thank you to Old War Dogs blogfor all the awesome things they have done to get the word out.

C-SPAN covers Rolling Thunder's Memorial Day activities at The Wall, so maybe they will cover GOE.

I will call.

In honor of St Patricks day, a day early since I won't be at my terminal. To all the Legal Immigrants who made this country possible.

Briefly this was written, after the Battle of Fredericksburg, in honor of the Brigade that put it on the line for their adopted country. Before the Battle General Maehger ordered all of his Brigade to put sprigs of 'Boxwood' in their caps, so that the whole world could see that the Irish died facing the enemy. On that fateful day the made 13 assaults on Maryre's Heights all were dismal failures.


Softly let thy footprints fall,

Upon this holy ground,

In reverence deep,

For those who sleep,

Beneath each lowly mound

Here hath many a noble son,

Of trodden mother land,

Whose joy thro' life,

Was hope of strife.

For their love of native land.

They came from Carlow's fertile plains,

And Wexford's woody vales,

From Innisbowen,

And green Tyrone,

And Wicklow's hills and dales.

They came to seek amid the free,

Homes to reward their toil,

In which to see

That liberty

Unknown on Erin's soil.

And well they loved the chosen land;

When menaced was her might,

Each grsteful heart

A willing part

Took in her cause to fight.

And her they lie in unblessed earth,

No kindred eye to weep,

Far, far away,

From the abbey's grey.

Where the sires and grandsires sleep.

Oh! Many a matron, many a maid,

Mourn in their native isle,

For the dear ones here,

Who no more shall cheer

Their hearts by their gladsome smile.

In many an ancient chapel there,

Nestled on the green hill side,

Will the good priest pray,

On the Sabbath day,

For his boys who in battle died.

Let us offer too, our orisons,

For each of the mayyr band,

Who nobly gave

Their lives to save

The might of their adopted land.

An alert reader has informed me that C-SPAN plans to cover tomorrow's defeatist ANSWER rally, but NOT the pro-victory Gathering of Eagles event.

How does C-SPAN determine its schedule? The C-SPAN networks are committed to televising the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate when they are in session. In addition, C-SPAN covers congressional hearings, White House press briefings, speeches, and other important public affairs events.
If you disagree with this decision, let them know.
