what We Did – Seems Impossible

PLEASE WAKE UP  AND THINK ABOUT THIS…………

 

Carefully study this artwork. Then, read what we did.

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor
in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945,

“We the People of the U.S.A. ” produced the following:

            22 aircraft carriers

              8 battleships

            48 cruisers

          349 destroyers

          420 destroyer escorts

          203 submarines

            34 million tons of merchant ships

   100,000 fighter aircraft

     98,000 bombers

     24,000 transport aircraft

     58,000 training aircraft

     93,000 tanks

   257,000 artillery pieces

   105,000 mortars

3,000,000 machine guns and

2,500,000 military trucks

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa,
invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day,
marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately,
conquered Japan and Germany.

It’s worth noting that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama Administration
couldn’t even build a web site that worked

FSM NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM

Monday May 30, 2016 is Memorial Day when we honor veterans.

In this season of political partisanship and rancor we at Family Security Matters would like to pay tribute to members of the 114th Congress who have served in the military.

 All legislators are willing to take a ballot for America. That’s democracy.

The following is a list of legislators in the Senate and the House of Representatives who were willing to take a bullet for our great nation.

Democrats are in italics for purposes of identification. To all we offer our gratitude for their service.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

It’s not just a day off from work to have a BBQ, but a day to remember those we lost. The ones who gave up everything for God and Country. The ones who would do it all over again because Duty, Honor and Freedom come first. Thank you to the brave men and women who served and gave their all and may God Bless You and your families.
