    Those who do not vote will be counted as a NO, I did not know.

    I've changed this, I'm am only counting the ones that responded because there may be international members who read the post.

    Thanks, DixielandMan, I had forgotten, the Army's Birthday. But you just reminded me of my ceremonial participation of the 200th Birthday of the Army. I had the honor of being in the group of ramp gaurds for president Ford when he came to Ft. Benning, GA., to celebrate the occassion. They lined us up on each side of the ramp/stairs that he walked down to get off of Air Force One. They must have only had us there to catch him in case he fail.

    The Sargeant of the Gaurd made us take the firing pins out of our M-16's, what an insult. A sad commentary.

    this is a true eyewitness account of actual event.

    I have one flying in the back, which is always flying and illuminated at night. Today, I also have one flying in the front, at the base of the pole there are stacked rifles, M-16 replicas and large scale model Harley Davidson.

    Thanks for being a patriot, hunter

    I knew, but don't know the significance or history of the day.
