This 83-year-old vet reminds Texans of sacrifice by playing ‘Taps’ daily




This 83-year-old vet reminds Texans of sacrifice by playing ‘Taps’ daily


When the sun begins to set over Galveston, TX, one veteran will stop traffic at a downtown intersection and face a balcony from which another veteran will step out and play “Taps.” This tribute has been a daily occurrence – for the past four years. For a very touching reason.

Guy Taylor, 83, is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. One of his best friends, Cpl David Champagne, served in the Korean War with him and was killed in action. Years later, Taylor visited his friend’s grave in Maine. It was there that he vowed to play ‘Taps’ every day in Champagne’s honor and in honor of all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Constable Clint Wayne Brown, a member of the U.S. Navy Reserve, heard Taylor’s very first tribute. To his dismay, no one else besides him was paying attention. “I thought, ‘No, that’s not how this works,” Brown said in an interview with CBS News. He pulled his patrol car out in front of traffic to make people stop, watch, and listen. Every day since then Brown has been silencing local traffic for a moment while Taylor plays “Taps.”

On March 18th, Karla Burton Smith and her husband were eating dinner at a restaurant that is across the street from Taylor’s balcony. She took a video of that moment and shared it on her Facebook page. It has been shared over 123,000 times. “I think that hearing “Taps” — that final farewell song — struck a chord with everybody,” Smith said in an interview with Wide Open Country. “Every generation, whether you’re younger or older, is impacted by someone in our country’s involvement in the military combat.”

Due to the exposure from the viral video of Taylor’s “Taps” performance, hundreds of veterans around the country have stood on 21st and Post Office Street in downtown Galveston at sunset in solidarity to honor their fallen brothers. What started as one veteran who humbly committed never forget his fallen friend in such a unique way now encourages many Americans to remember those who have paid for our freedom with their lives.

“I hope it lets people realize that this matters,” Smith said. “We need to give respect to our veterans; they have all sacrificed so much.”

Obama Regime Accused Of Misleading Congress On Cash Release To Iran


Obama Regime Accused Of Misleading Congress On Cash Release To Iran


The Obama administration faces accusations it has been misleading Congress about the amount and destination of sanctions relief being provided to Iran as part of last summer’s nuclear agreement, according to lawmakers and congressional sources who expressed anger at the administration over a range of contradictory facts being offered about the payouts.

Secretary of State John Kerry came under scrutiny last week after saying in a statement that Iran has received only about $3 billion in sanctions relief to date—a figure far smaller than the $100 billion estimate administration officials had previously said Iran would receive under the deal. It also contradicts statements from top Iranian officials that they had regained control of $100 billion in foreign reserves unfrozen under the deal.

I sure hope Kerry and Obama burn in hell.

STUPID Denver Christian School Drops Crusaders Mascot Because It May Be Offensive To Muslims


Denver Christian School Drops Crusaders Mascot Because It May Be Offensive To Muslims


DENVER – A Denver Christian school is changing its Crusaders mascot because some people think it’s offensive to Muslims.

“In our mission, in light of the command to love our neighbors as ourselves, the crusader was an inconsistent, inappropriate symbol for that mission,” Denver Christian Schools CEO Todd Lanting told KUSA.

After using the Crusaders mascot for 65 of the school’s 100 year history, officials in November began to solicit ideas for a new symbol, and have since narrowed it down to two possibilities: Thunder and Trailblazers.

The problem with the old name is that “a lot of people were concerned about the association with the crusades, a series of wars between Christians and Muslims,” according to the news site.

Lanting insists the change is not an effort to align with political correctness.

“It has nothing to do with political correctness,” he said. “It’s got everything to do with love and empathy for our neighbors.”

Well OK so when a Muslim wants to cut your head of or one of your loved ones I guess that will be OK too. We wouldn't want to bawl out the Muslim for being violent or killing a person, that just would not be polite.

Sanders Takes RI And Leading In CT



Wild Thing's comment.............

Apparently Trump will more then likely be the nominee of the Republican party. Just have to go day by day and see what happens.

I am just so grateful that I got to vote for Marco Rubio here in Florida, it felt so great to vote for a candidate that was not a Trump, Cruz, Kasich or any of the other ones I would have had to hold my nose to vote for in the primary.
