Veterans Day 2012 materials available

The American Legion’s Public Relations Division has released its slate of materials for Veterans Day 2012. The more directly public-focused material is a pair of ad slicks, in black/white and color, thanking all veterans for their service. The PR Division is sending the slicks to newspapers around the country to use as a free public service; Legionnaires are encouraged to download and distribute them to publications in their area – school, corporate and church bulletins/newsletters, etc. The slicks can be accessed here in color and here in black/white.

The suggested Veterans Day speech is available here. All patriotic-holiday speeched prepared by the PR Division are meant only as starting places, for members delivering a speech publicly or just at the post, to amend in whatever ways they feel best relate the Legion’s message to the audience. Both the speech and the ad slicks can also be accessed on the Publications page of the national website.

Stay tuned for more news and announcements on Veterans Day 2012.

"A MUST READ FOR ALL THE "TALKERS" AS SHAKESPEARE APTLY RECOUNTED---"TALKERS ARE NO GOOD DOERS." It's time to roust the nest of indifferent corrupt rats in the Pennsylvania General Assembly----YES-every one of them! AND NOW! P.S. To Senator Kim Ward: I've written to you twice in the oast seven days, but for whatever reasons you have ignored my writings. That being the case I can only presume that you didn't give a damn about me or my problems, or about many other Pennsylvanians and their problems. If you can provide me with the name of a politician in the General Assembly who might give a damn about Pennsylvania's citizens' problems---email me his or her name at once. It's apparent that my writings to you are not of interest to you. Your interests at the next election will also not be of any interest to me! C.F. Miller A Must Read For Every "SELF-PROFESSED" American!Thomas Jefferson (Be sure to read the 2nd part in RED.)Thomas Jefferson was a remarkable man (AS CONTRASTED WITH THE UNREMARKABLE ONES WE HAVE TODAY) who started learning very early in life and never stopped. At 5- began studying under his cousin's tutor.At 9- studied Latin, Greek, and French.At 14- studied classical literature and additional languages.At 16- entered the College of William and Mary.At 19- studied Law for five years starting under George Wythe.At 23- started his own law practice.At 25- was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.At 31- wrote the widely circulated "Summary View of the Rights of British America" and retired from his law practice.At 32- was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.At 33- wrote the Declaration of Independence.At 33- took three years to revise Virginia's legal code and wrote a Public Education Bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.At 36- was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.At 40- served in Congress for two years.At 41- was the American Minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.At 46- served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.At 53- served as Vice President and was elected President of the American Philosophical Society.At 55- drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of the Republican Party.At 57- was elected the Third President of The United States.At 60- obtained the Louisiana Purchase doubling the nation's size.At 61- was elected to a Second Term as President.At 65- retired to Monticello.At 80- helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.At 81- almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first President.At 83- died on the 50th Anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence. Along with John Adams, Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws, and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us into the future. John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightestMinds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps theAssembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White HouseWith the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."______________________________________________________________"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shallBecome as corrupt as Europe." -Thomas Jefferson "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who areWilling to work and give to those who would not." -Thomas Jefferson "It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principleWhich if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." -Thomas Jefferson "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the governmentFrom wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."-Thomas Jefferson "My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results fromToo much government." -Thomas Jefferson "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." -Thomas Jefferson "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear armsIs, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."-Thomas Jefferson "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriotsAnd tyrants." -Thomas Jefferson "To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which heDisbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." -Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties thanStanding armies.
