Memorial Day tribute to those lost in The Cold War with Terrorists
In the period between the Vietnam War and the War on Terrorism, the fight for freedom and democracy continued as terrorists persisted in their unrelentingly quest to oppress and destroy the sovereignty of those who stand in opposition to their ideology.
- October 23, 1983 Bombing of U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon;
- December 21, 1988 Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland;
- The Persian Gulf War (August 2, 1990 – February 28, 1991) aka Operation Desert Shield, later code named Operation Desert Storm (January 17, 1991 – February 28, 1991) aka the First Gulf War;
- 1993 World Trade Center Bombing;
- October 12, 2000 attack of the USS Cole in the port of Aden, Yemen by two suicide bombers.
Each attack including the September 11, 2001 was an act of war against the West resulting in the loss of American lives (military and non-military).
Americans have neither forsaken nor forgotten the heroes/victims/casualties of the Cold War with Terrorists.

We thank and ask God to bless those who served in Operation Desert Storm and thank them for their service. God bless all, their families, friends and loved ones.
God bless America.

I am an American, Black female, Christian, Conservative and a Sagittarian.
I am also a firm believer in God, family and country.
I love the liberties and freedom in accordance with the Constitution and have no intention of walking or running away from those freedoms as bestowed upon us by the Founders.
Born and raised in the Empire State, I am a mother, aunt and grandmother having raised a son and four nieces on my own while caring for a disabled spouse.
The Heavenly Father is my Messiah not the jackrabbit and deceiver in the White House. I thank the Lord above for giving us His Son, Jesus Christ, who in turn died so that we may live.
Member of the sisterhood who strongly believes in fighting the good fight. I am also an advocate for those unable to fight and speak for themselves.
Not one to live or think within the box, I am free-spirited and capable of drawing my own conclusion. Any input by the Progressive establishment on both the left and the right is most unwelcome.
