Old Post Cards

Old Post Cards
While being a “Helicopter Crew Chief Instructor” there, I’d go to Washington DC, with a few buddies almost every weekend.  We’d do the Smithsonian and all.
On the way back to Ft. Eustis (125 miles), we’d often stop for something to eat.
One time, it was getting late.  We landed in Falls Church, VA.  We saw an old general store that was still open.  We walked around on the old creaky floors looking for Frito’s or something?  I came across, an old wire frame post card holder.  It was full of WWII post cards … penny a piece!
I asked the guy, “How much do you want for the Post Cards?”  He said, “A penny.  They have been here ever since he was a kid.”
I counted them … 300 plus.  I gave him $4.00, and I got the rack, too.
In San Diego, I sold a bunch for $1.00 each.  I still have a bunch to hand down.
I know some of you are too young to recall these posters and WWII, but they were a part of my life and others who are now “older than dirt”.  These are great.  Pass them along, especially to your older e-mail friends.

I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking.
I got a lump in my throat when I read this.  I “grew up” thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way!  I am glad to see that somebody saved them.  The statement at the end says it all!
hese were our parents.

What in God’s name have we let happen ?
I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these!
Whatever happened?
70 years of ”progressive” education happened!
Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened,
Lack of God’s name happened,
Lack of personal responsibility happened,
Lack of personal integrity and honesty happened,
Lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened,
Lack of being an American happened.
Did all of these things die along with common sense?
I for one am still proud to be an American!

If you are too …. Pass this along,  so others can show their pride.
In English please!
