Why Rednecks Make Good Soldiers
Dear Ma & Pa:
Am well. Hope you are. Tell brother Walt & Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile.
Tell them to join up quick before maybe all of the places are filled.
I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m., but am getting so I like to sleep late.
Tell Walt & Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot and shine some things.
No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.
Men got to shave but it is not so bad, they git warm water.
Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc...,
but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie, and other regular food.
But tell Walt & Elmer you can always sit between two city boys that live on coffee.
Their food plus yours holds you till noon, when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.
We go on "route" marches, which the Platoon Sergeant says are long walks to harden us.
If he thinks so, it is not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home.
Then the city guys gets sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country is nice, but awful flat.
The Sergeant is like a schoolteacher. He nags some. The Capt. is like the school board.
Majors & Colonels just ride around & frown. They don't bother you none.
This next will kill Walt & Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting.
I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk and don't move.
And it ain't shooting at you, like the Higgett boys at home.
All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.
Be sure to tell Walt & Elmer to hurry & join before other fellers get into this setup & come stampeding in.Poem Title: To All Your loving daughter, Gail
P.S. Speaking of shooting, enclosed is $200 towards a new barn roof & ma's teeth. The city boys shoot craps, but not very good.
Our Fallen Heros
They gave their lives
for freedom and peace
To defend our country
that terror may cease
The army, navy, air force,
coast guard and marines
We proudly salute you
for doing these things
You've made America
what we are today
You make us all proud
of the American way
For those who make it
for those who did not
The United States military
the best that we got
WE SALUTE OUR TROOPS!!

Poem Title: A great soldier yet to be seen......
A great soldier yet to be seen.....
The day when I met you
Your attitude impressed me in my mind and heart
You are known to everyone as a great yesterday
soldier for our country.
You were distinguished soldier, an officer,
a man among men.
You are the most valuable gift for our country
Your contribution to the World War II is unforgettable.
Your Knowledge on military is a precious gift for
our young soldiers.
You loved our country and you did the best for her.
Today, you are away from us, living by yourself
Your marched forward legs are stands still today.
You be the best what ever you are and where ever you are.
But the love you have shown on us will
cherish in our heart forever.
As bible says LOVE is patient and kind
and let that faith surround you.
You are a great soldier for the all time
and yet to be seen

Poem Title: I Paid The Price
I am a soldier who paid the price.
I gave my life, I sacrificed.
My family, my friends, no more I'll see,
I gave my life so they could be free.
This country I loved, with all my might,
I did the things I thought was right.
Far off I went to fight a war,
I gave my life, I live no more.
Cry for me not, no tears should you shed,
I died for my country, for my country I bled.
In the earth I lie, with our flag in my hands,
I'm taking it with me to the promised land.

Poem Title: prayer for our soldiers
To our soldiers, away from home ,
somebodys daddy, mother and son,
to all I bow with pride my head ,
I pray for them and want forget.
Oh mighty God, father of all,
protect our soldiers,
who are standing so tall.
They are fighting for peace , and giving
fearless and strong with pride and no rest.
Every day for them is unknown ,
what will be the future, will they come back home?
With out our soldiers where would we be?
their courage and strengths is setting us free.
Oh lord protect them by night and by day,
lead them to glory
and show them the way
Bring our soldiers safely back home ,
mothers and fathers and sombody's son.
Give all of them your blessings and love ,
Oh please hear my prayer, oh Mighty above
Legs In The Air
Little Johnny came home from school to see the families pet rooster dead in the front yard. Rigormortis had set in and it was flat on its back with its legs in the air. When his Dad came home Johnny said, "Dad our roosters dead and his legs are sticking in the air. Why is his legs sticking in the air?"
His father thinking quickly said, "Son, that's so God can reach down from the clouds and lift the rooster straight up to heaven."
"Gee Dad that's great," said little Johnny. A few days later, when Dad came home from work, Johnny rushed out to meet him yelling, "Dad, Dad we almost lost Mom today!"
"What do you mean?" said Dad.
"Well Dad, I got home from school early today and went up to your bedroom and there was Mom flat on her back with her legs in the air screaming, "Jesus I'm coming, I'm coming" If it hadn't of been for Uncle George holding her down we'd have lost her for sure!"
Everything I Need
A married couple is driving down the interstate doing 55
mph. The husband is behind the wheel. His wife looks over at
him and says, "Honey, I know we've been married for 15 years,
but, I want a divorce."
The husband says nothing but slowly increases speed to 60
She then says, "I don't want you to try to talk me out of
it, because I've been having an affair with your best friend,
and he's a much better lover than you."
Again the husband stays quiet and just speeds up as his
She says, "I want the house." Again the husband speeds up,
and now is doing 70 mph.
She says, "I want the kids, too."
The husband just keeps driving faster, and faster, now he's
up to 80 mph.
She says, "I want the car, the checking account, and all the
credit cards, too."
The husband slowly starts to veer toward
a bridge overpass piling, as she says, "Is there anything
The husband says, "No, I've got everything I need."
She asks, "What's that?"
The husband replies just before they hit the wall at 90 mph,
"I've got the airbag!"
