and covers the graves of the soldiers who have died here...red for the ghosts of war
and if you sell hate, I'll sell hope
for the strange fruit of fear swings at the end of a rope...shadows of the ghosts of war
and I will not fight unless I'm cut first
then you will see all of my blood-thirst....blood of the ghosts of war
now I ride around, biking on a lovely Sunday and see some families with kids...some tents pitched on the grass..or having fun on Sunday at the beach..
I reflect on Memorial Day..and this freedom I've got
do I have blood on my hands? I see the News-Press has tons of stories about the military, the war heroes, Ronald Reagan and his warship, the USS Ronald Reagan..did Reagan serve in the military?
Ronald Wilson Reagan enrolled in a series of home-study Army Extension Courses on 18 March 1935. After completing 14 of the courses, he enlisted in the Army Enlisted Reserve on 29 April 1937, as a Private assigned to Troop B, 322nd Cavalry at Des Moines, Iowa. He was appointed Second Lieutenant in the Officers Reserve Corps of the Cavalry on 25 May 1937. On June 18 of that year Reagan, who had just moved to Los Angeles to begin his film career, accepted his Officer’s Commission and was assigned to the 323rd Cavalry.
Lieutenant Reagan was ordered to active duty on 19 April 1942. Due to eyesight difficulties, he was classified for limited service only, which excluded him from serving overseas.
oh so Reagan had some eyesight issues like Bernie Taupin!
freedom...who will fight for it??
did anyone at the News-Press serve? was Nipper a draft dodger? or maybe he can't see either
maybe it's time we all opened our eyes...
