Dear Editor,To see one so young who exhausted did not bend his knee.
Do we have enough Americans who have the courage of convictions, who believe in the preamble to the Declaration and Constitution? Who would not cave when things looked so bleak? Seeing the front of the landing craft drop and hearing the bark of the German MG-42 machine gun can you go forward? We have an auto- firearm range near my home each summer. I was able to fire this weapon. One German soldier who had this weapon reportedly fired 10,000 rounds that day - the 6th of June 1944. Thinking also of the Soldiers blue and grey who battled to keep the union and to end slavery. Think on this - muzzle-loading weapons - and an average soldier could reload 2 1/2 times per minute. An advancing infantry at 30-inch steps 30 per minute would cover --- 75 yards 2 1/2 minutes would advance 187.5 yards in that time. If any of the surviving infantry survived it would be hand to hand --- bayonets for the defenders. In the early years, the Union Army withdrew or retreated before the Rebel Forces too often. Most of the officers on both sides were graduates of West Point. Winning was not always an occurrence on the North until General U. S. Grant and General W. T. Sherman were in command. On Flag day are we "the land of the free and the home of the brave"?
Or are we Antifa? Throwing rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, bullets at our law officers and civilians, burning our minority business and looting the same. Its time to chose. Peaceful protests are one thing, but this is no longer a protest but an insurgency. An overthrow of the rule of law and governess. This puts us all at risk regardless of our sympathy.
