I opened it, but there was nothing there. Could it be my crappy system? Check this out, I cut and pasted it from the Net.
I don't know if you saw this in the news but it really impressed me. Funny,
our US Senate/House took 2 days off as they couldn't work.
On the ABC evening news, it was reported tonight that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment.
They refused. 'No way, Sir!'
Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.
The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.
I don't usually suggest that many emails be forwarded, but I'd be DAMN proud if this one reached as many as possible.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
God Bless them.

I learned something here Brian. I had not idea it had been patrolled 24/7 since 1930. Not surprised the troops refused to leave their post. Thank you.

Interesting spark of patritotism in your response considering it comes from one who would think nothing of burning an American flag.

Beautiful, John! Thank you. I couldn't ever get it loaded on my home computer last night, so while the children are at PE, I watched it just now.
Thanks for sharing,
