Grey-Haired Brigade

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in

some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready

to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little

slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once

were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God

and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being

over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off

completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into

consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which

enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us

remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand

experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent

gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of

you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and

referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were

started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But

there are a few things you need to remember before completely

writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam . We

can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our

hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride

and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn't fight for the

Socialist States of America ; we fought for the "Land of the Free and

the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the

same flag. We know the words to theStar Spangled Banner , America

,and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears

running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you

have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation

to apologize to anyone for America .

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at

least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for

it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and

nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend

America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath

we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we

love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain

silent.



Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in

2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little

slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2012

we're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to

the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry

Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan

toreclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a

better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance,

Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank

God for the old geezers of the "Grey-Haired Brigade."
